Scaling plan and no trading during news events. Things that aren't enforced during step 1 that are in step 2. So watch out for interest rate announcements, FMOC meeting minutes, NFP, etc. You have to be flat 1 min prior to 1 min after.

Some events/announcement that are not required to be flat also need to be aware of. For eg, jobless claim, CPI.

I had a pretty huge slippage for GC that caused me to break daily limit rule. My stops was set at 15t and 16t, but I got filled over 50t for both lots, more than 10t slippage per lot.

Scaling Plan and Weekly Loss Limit Clarification

Thanks for helping clarify @TradingOgre and @matthew28. You summed it all up pretty well. The Weekly Loss Limit is equivalent to the Daily Loss Limit and is factored based on the sum of the total Net P&L in the calendar week. The Weekly Loss Limit rule is eliminated once the Trailing Maximum Drawdown reaches the starting balance. Your leverage is determined by the Trading Combine account size you choose on day one. As you build/lose equity, your buying power will increase/decrease based on your end of day P&L, according to the graphs that featured here. In the Funded Account, once your cumulative profit is greater than $5,000, you can request adjusted risk parameters.

Always feel free to reach out to us at with any questions.

If you have any questions about our products or services at TopstepTrader, please send me a Private Message or use the FIO "Ask Me Anything" thread.

Webinar recording:


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.
