Thanks


Me and my trading buddies have discussed this very topic many times. The general consensus is negative, but
I am trying to keep an open mind

Bharatiya- Our equity partner has received many check requests from traders we place with them and each trader has received their check or if overseas a wire.

We really have nothing to hide. Traders come to TopstepTrader. Those that meet the objective in the Trading Combine get an opportunity to trade on our equity partners funded account. Those that profit enough to move themselves to Senior level are then permitted to start requesting a withdraw from their account. Those that request a withdraw get their cut of the profits.

Everything TopstepTrader offers is listed on our site. We don't have fine print. We are an educational and recruiting firm that feeds those talented traders in our Trading Combine to our partnering Proprietary Trading Groups.

Hope that helps.

MP I am not questioning the legitimacy of the firm. Its the long and tedious process to get senior trader status.
First multiple combines than live trading preparation than interview , junior trader... it might take some time .
I just wanted to know the traders who made it what is their experience with the firm. Is it worth ????

I am not talking about hard numbers not even general reviews like about trading environment, support, getting my checks on time.......

I always seen support staff or yours side, never patak/topdstep traders reviews. Thats why I put the question to the futures.io (formerly BMT) members.

Thanks

Search for TST. There are a ton of threads where people journal their experience with the combine. Tons and tons. Many are in Elite section, and you are not Elite, so keep that in mind.

Well, although I'm still far away of being a funded trader, I just want to add my 2 cents to the discussion.

ATM I'm in my second Combine and all I can say is that TST support is awesome, they are going to help you with ANY questions and concerns you might have...so really nothing wrong or 'suspicious' with that.

If you successfully pass a Combine you won't necessarily have to go through the process of Live Trader Preparation, this depends on how the Scouting Team 'judges' your trading and might be fairly discussed with them as well.

And lastly, I think before anybody should even think about of how / how much or how often withdrawing some money out of his account or bothering with how and when to become Senior trader status, IMO it's mandatory to build some sort of 'cushion' in order to earn the 'right' (or 'status' if you like) of changing / negotiating any given parameters relating to the just funded account...so YES, it definitely takes time to accomplish all necessary requirements, but it's still worth to give it a shot, just because besides all that monetary stuff, you'll learn a lot more about yourself than you ever might thought of.

Bharatiya- Ok, I understand. To add a comment or two about the process and the time it takes. This is different for each trader as trading is a personal journey for everyone. Some have taken one Combine and went funded, some multiple and funded and some never make it funded. This is very similar to all those traders who open their own brokerage account with their personal capital. Some trade well and never look back, some flounder, being up one day, down the next until their account gets chewed away with commission and some straight bury their account.

Our goal when becoming a Chicago Fintech startup was to change the way people approach the financial markets. We have developed a platform that, without risking your trading capital, allows anyone interested in the market to learn, gain market experience trading a real-time simulated account with real risk parameters and earn an opportunity to trade real capital from anywhere in the world.

I welcome your questions and am sorry for any confusion from my prior reply.

Have a good weekend.

lol - Cassius is a huge dog - he looks much smaller in these pics than he does in real life... mind you I am vertically challenged myself.

Lovely dog - great temperament - just damn huge...



And here's me & Eddie....



All great guys @ Topstep. Both Mike and Hoag seem to be very well known and very well respected on the CME Floor too.

Just received this Email from TST today, I think this isn't going to make things easier for a new (TST) trader:
