EUREX contracts

Hi,

Do you plan to add Eurex (I am interested in ESTX and Bund) to the available exchanges-contracts for the Combine?

And, if that is the case, when?

Thanks,


Bern

FWIW, I use Sierra Charts with TST and Sierra uses a barchart feed that comes with the subscription that has TICK, A/D, etc. I have package 5 but it may also be standard on package 3, I'm not sure. Works fine in conjunction with CTS/TST.

bmmartin- We are communicating with Eurex on making their products available in our Combine. Currently we do not have the Eurex products available.

kman- I do not believe that code is available still. You may call our recruiting line at 312.252.9490 and a recruiter will let you know what he can help you with.

Mike.

I was wondering why the IDT will now be $500 with a 10 day 50k combine included instead of just offered independantly. Additionally, and more importantly, why is the increased profit split of 65/35 being eliminated? Wasn't it already reduced from 70/30?

This is the first i've heard of this. According to their website the IDT program is still $300 and results in a 65/35 profit split when getting funded. Im sure Topstep will chime in soon enough to clarify.

I certainly hope you are mistaken about the profit split change. Im sure the course is excellent and plan on doing it myself. But if the profit split benefit is removed, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot less people doing it.

Diversification is the only free lunch

BTW, there is a webinar from Ray Burchett on futures.io (formerly BMT):

Webinar: Ray Burchett - Intuitive Development for Traders (IDT)

My understanding is it covers some similar material that is covered more in-depth in his course.

That's correct, the futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar deals with most of the topics which are covered in detail, very comprehensive and interactively in this course.

Since I went through the IDT course a couple of months ago, I can state that Ray does an awesome job and it was quite the best educational webinar on trader's psychology I've ever attended so far.
