@NinjaTrader, @TopstepTrader,

I am getting mixed messages on this. So, please forgive me if I ask this one more time.

I want to open two simultaneous accounts with TopStep Trader. I want to open two accounts because I want to use one account to only take Long trades and the other account to take Short trades. This will allow me to take a Long trade and a Short trade at the same time without closing my positions.

@ Topstep Trader,

Your input will give me the information I need to proceed.

You need to flag @TopstepTrader with this username to get their attention.

Bob.

Thank you Bob. I assumed that your mention of them would be sufficient to get their attention.

In any event, as this is not the appropriate thread and to avoid split/multiple threads, the discussion is better suited here:

Recently a trader in the TST combine broke a Rule. Well, let me let him tell you:
Trader:
"I lost the trading combine because i holded a position at 12:00 the 3 July, noticed too late it was independance day in America.

Was about to hit the profit target for 150k combine step 2 the same day.

Feel stupid"

Michael Patak [Founder of TST]

"[Trader] if what you are saying is accurate... let’s waive this broken rule. Let support know we chatted. This is under the assumption that you are positive and close to your step 2 profit goal. In this rare scenario, someone who is that close to meeting the profit target and slips due to a US holiday trading should be looked differently."

A Classy move Mr. Patak!

Sadly, I did the same thing with OneUp and lost my Combine. A bad mistake but my own fault.

Wasn't the closing time 12:15? Not sure since i didn't trade myself that day and i didn't check the trading hours.

Well done by TST to waive the broken rule, however i must say i had a similar experience at OneUp and they did waive it for me as well, as a one time offer. Did you contact OneUp to explain your one time mistake?

Yes it was 12:15. Maybe it was the 4th because he did say it was Independence Day. The trader was from another country so he may not have been sure of the exact Closing time on the 3rd.

Yes I did contact @oneuptrader at support@oneup.com and was told by Bruce I was no longer eligible for a funded account.

I want to open two accounts. One for winning trades, and one for losing (loosing?) trades.

We want to congratulate @TopstepTrader for their anniversary, so we sent them cake & cupcakes

They were kind enough to send over some photos, which I've attached below.

Thank you to @TopstepTrader for their continued site sponsorship of our community here at futures io.
