TopStepTrader So if I got funded would I have to buy a Ninjatrader license for about a thousand dollars? If I wanted to use R/Trader how much would that be per month? Would I have to pay to use R/Trader for the combine and how much?

Quirtevans- To use the NinjaTrader platform in the funded account, you would have to purchase/lease your own license. If you chose the Lifetime license, you're eligible for a discount of $300 off the multi-broker and $100 off the single-broker due to our partnership with NT. NT also has much lower cost leasing options, other pricing can be found here: NinjaTrader Charting Software & Trading Platform: Purchase Options. The Rithmic Trader platform is free to use in both the Combine and funded accounts, but does not include charts. R|Trader Pro is free for the Combine account and costs $25 per month for the funded account and does include charts.

I hope that helps.

Michael

quirtevans,

Yes, you can use R|Trader Pro for the 14 day trial, the Combine or a funded account. Here is a link to connection instructions. https://futures.io/topsteptrader.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/1976026-r%7Ctrader-pro Thanks for the question, let us know if you have any more.

Regards,

Hoag

Does anyone from TopstepTrader have any news - or even an estimate - of when forex Combines will be available, please?

I appreciate that there are some related Globex futures products available, but there are also many forex traders waiting for the much-heralded forex Combines. I ask only because for so long now Topstep's website has been saying that this is coming soon, but there never seems to be an update. Any news would be very welcome, please?

Tymbeline,

Thank you for your interest in the Forex Combine. While I can't give you a timeline, the Forex Combine is coming. We are working on the hurdles and are looking forward to making it available to everyone.

I know this doesn't help for planning but I tend to promise little and provide much!

I trade part time since I have 40 hours week full time job. More importantly, I am not US citizen and working in US on work permit.
I do have small size trading account with infinity and not faced any problem while opening it.

Question: Can I try TST combine and if passed, am I eligible for funded account ?

Nevermind, I checked with TST support and they are good with my criteria.

Hi,
Can you please confirm that when you complete a combine,
and the LTP as documented below, the daily loss and max drawdown you are provided corresponds to the combine level that you have invested in with the only exception being the scaling plan? I have seen some things on the boards to the contrary so wanted to get clarification.
Thanks!
