Guys I am here for any questions.

Darkpool to answer your question. Doing the math or not we are looking for traders to produce. The Combine allows us to find those traders. It also allows those to develop who are not able to "naturally" meet the profit target. You should never force it. If you are forcing it you are not focusing on your trading. You are focusing on the profit target which is only PART of the objective. The Combine Objective is to "Follow the Rules" (which are basics fundamental rules that traders should have in their trading plan) and meet or exceed the profit target. If you didn't hit the profit you but met the rules you are rolling over or moving on in your life at no cost. Traders develop by being in the market this is helping them develop.

We could pick apart every little detail and miss the fact that this opportunity is to help us find traders and help others create, test, and prove their trading strategy, without risking REAL trading capital. That is our offer. There is incredible talent out there that does not have the chance to develop properly or showcase themselves in front of anyone that is able to help them move them forward. We are a solution and an available option for these traders.

Darkpool,
That wasn't quite the answer I had hoped for either. Anyways, they giveth and they taketh. Some of the new rules make it easier, some more difficult.

Darkpool,

I think it is fair to mention that I've worked with a bunch of trading related companies over the past 4 years on futures.io (formerly BMT), and TST is actually one of the most accommodating and receptive ones I can think of.

I do not agree with all of their decisions, nor do I have approval or voting rights over how they run their business. But I think I have a good business relationship with all the guys over there, and I do candidly share my thoughts with them from time to time, even when they don't ask

Bottom line, I think so long as you are professional with them about any concerns you have and you propose alternatives to issues you view as hindrances, they will usually listen and try to accommodate you.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks Mike.

As stated we typically will accommodate and work with those that feel the standard Combine Rules do not fit their style by asking them to submit a Custom Combine proposal. All traders have the option to call and propose alternate rules or profit targets with a member of our team. This is our Custom Combine option. If interested please call our main line to discuss further. 312.252.9490.

Just to be clear, I wasn't questioning the company or people. I was just anticipating an answer with the same detail that was in the darkpool's post, since this was an AMA type thread. No biggie. Looking back at DP's post, he didn't actually ask a question, so I shouldn't have waited for an answer LOL. And they still have a custom combine, as was just mentioned. I actually like the new combine requirements. It suits my style of trading more than the current rules.

For anyone that needs a bit more clarity on the changes regarding Minimum Account Balance here is a graph and a link to the description: (as you will notice when trading as a funded trader the further away you get from your initial balance the greater negotiating powers you will have for increasing your size and daily loss limit, as well as the opportunity to trade other products and/or markets)

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).
