Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

There is definitely a lot of teamwork going on in the TST Pits AJ, especially the Crude Pit..... I can't wait to get back to it! I too must use the chart trader... couple of more weeks they are saying..

We should make a TST / NT group when we all start jumping on this thing.

For under / or (like me) marginally funded traders, this is a no brainer. We could work as a team.

We will then be able to scale out with multiple cars, and trade like seasoned pro's.

Big Mike's TST army

I'll be trying the combine after the studio biz slows down for the holidays... should be able to squeeze in 20 in 60
at that time... My style of trading should not be bothered if I run into a little choppy holiday market kookiness ...

Can't wait

Same with my scalping concepts. The markets are never perfect, there is always something .... in the case of the Christmas season I think it should be fine up until the 21st. Then it will be really really quiet until sometime in the 7th - 14th range. Probably until the 14th of Jan it will stay pretty quiet. The elite traders tend to stay on holidays into the new year. Can't believe it's that time of year again already....

yes... when you trade from the outside in, you simply scale your targets to market conditions.

Now thinking clearly with that live is what's hard

It get's easier with over time and as you become more consistent with your methodology. Do it in the combine, and then do it live. You will eventually get it just like riding a bike. Focus on your success across the big picture and each individual trade becomes less critical.

There have been some questions about profit sharing. Here is the info from the website.

Online Trading Platform | FAQ | TopstepTrader Click on funded trader on the left hand side.


Quoting 
Funded Trader Profit Split

If the funded trader has profits as specified below in the account they will receive the following profit split:

$0-$15,000, trader keeps 60% OR 70% profit split (60% or 70% to the trader and 30% or 40% to the equity partner)*
$15,000-$30,000, trader keeps 70% (70% to the trader and 30% to the equity partner)
$30,000+, trader keeps 80% (80% to the trader and 20% to the equity partner)

*A funded trader will start with a 70/30 profit split (70% to the trader and 30% to the equity partner) if he or she went through the Intuitive Development for Traders course PRIOR to meeting the Combine objective and being taken live.

But using a DOM could be a deal killer. Too frantic for me.

Holy crap, you trade CL without a DOM... and sometimes scalping at that? I can't imagine.

As mentioned before in this thread though, if you are willing to try sierra, which has chart trading, then you can do it now.

TST 10-day $50k combine summary...

Greetings....

A relatively quiet week for me trading the combine, but ended week well.
I'm at halfway point and need to profit $547 per day to make the $3500 profit objective.
I'm excited to learn/know that Ninja will be a platform to use in the coming weeks, but not waiting
for that. I can trade the T4 DOM just fine with my standing limit orders scalping the Euro 6E in the
pre market using Boomerang Day Trading System.

I will continue to keep people posted and TopStep is going to be able to take me to the next level.
Would take me a lifetime to save up $50k to trade!!!

I will provide my trade setups on Friday 9/21. Again, I'm in NY so East coast times.

Cheers everyone

The DOM just psyches me out. I can see the same thing using volume on a 1m without focusing on the "haggling".

I thought TF was an allowed instrument, but I can't see it on their list now. Has anyone tried trading it with them? Seems an odd one to cut out, since it's liquid enough.
