So the cushion is 5k/10k and the 15k/30k is what you accumulate in total profits(yet is distributed to you every month-does that count towards it) for the 80-20% split ? Am I understanding this right ?

Also can you go into numbers as %(you maynot want to give actual #'s) of people who get funded on passing the combine and who go onto become senior traders ? Thanks

garyboy- The details for the account cushion can be found on this page: Live Trading Room | Trading Program | Topstep Funded Trader

When you accumulate profits of $15k or $30k you will be bumped up from 60/40 to 70/30 to 80/20 profit split (the traders way).

Lastly, TST does not release numbers for funded trader's performance. This is confidential between their equity partner and the funded trader. If you would like to talk to any of our past, current, or upcoming funded traders they are in our chat room daily. The only numbers we do give out are how many funded traders are active with them. This is currently at 28.

One last point, TST offers an opportunity to trade on a funded account for those that show they are disciplined and meet an objective. What the trader does once funded is completely on them. I will say that those that continue doing what got them to the funed account (staying disciplined and following risk parameters) are doing very well.

treydog- Sierracharts is available already. Our next platform to be added will be Ninjatrader. Once that is good to go, we will look to add additional platforms.

Hi, missed the memo on Sierracharts been available for the Combine. I was trying to find this information on your website but no luck. When you mean using Sierrcharts, do you mean using Sierracharts DOM or Trading from the charts? Please direct me to the location where I can find Sierracharts as an option for the Combine on your website.

Thank you

Increase funding amount

Hi Michael,
If a trader gets funded with a $50k account and he/she makes good progress over a period of time, i.e. grows the account, will you consider adding to the funded account? For example bumping it up to a $150k account? Or must the trader complete a new $150k combine to get access to more funding?

I use Sierra Charts on TST. You can trade from the chart or the DOM. Choice is yours. The only thing you need to do is to let TST know you're going to use Seirra Charts by emailing them or visiting the support room in the chat after you sign up.

And you don't even need to let them know; I used SC with TST from day 1 and never had to inform them of this.
