Well, there's the same question for me since I'm located in Germany, and it will be a quite hard piece of work for me to explain this kind of relationship with TST to German tax authorities as well...

In Germany there is a one and only Tax witch in person ***
She shouts as Arnie here on futures.io (formerly BMT) whispers: "WHERE's the MONEY?"

*** For those who don't know: her name is Merkel

Hehe, you got it my friend.

But don't ever forget our Minister of Finance, Mr. Schäuble...together they are really an 'unbeatable team'.

Having that said, let's go and transfer some money to Cyprus now. Wonder who'll be next...and sorry for getting a bit off topic.

The latest funded trader Caden399 only made $2098 in the 50K/10days minimum Combine (as opposed to the normal $3500 target). I don't see his Combine having a smaller DLL or MaxD, so if it was a costum Combine, what was his specifics? Maybe trading 4 different instrument???

If so, would the mini ES and the mini Dow count as 2 different instruments? Well, technically they are, but practically they are pretty much the same...

Well, as it was just mentioned during the current TST webinar, Ninja Trader will 'probably be available in a month'...

Since Ninja Trader is now being postponed time and again for about 6 months, I seriously wonder if it ever will be available in a Combine...
