Actually, it is not their money. It is yours....

Hi @cw30000,

I've pretty much decided not to argue any more about TST. For one thing, this isn't the thread for it, this is for Michael Patak of TST to answer questions. For another, I think everyone should do what they want. So, if anyone doesn't like the TST offer, they should not, of course, take it. That about sums it up for me.

I'm only responding now because you quoted me, but I really should not have made that post here, either. There is a vendor review thread for TST here, https://futures.io/vendors-product-reviews/11360-anybody-heard-topsteptrader-review.html, which is where I will keep my TST opinions from now on, assuming I have anything to say, and I urge others to do so as well. It helps to prevent a split topic.

Good trading.

Bob.

monur View Post
hello my question is I can not use FXCM forex data when I configured ninja trader according to topsteptrader.. Do you know how may I add FXCM demo account to ninjatrader configured to work with topsteptrader? It was an option before in the account connections tab, now it gone..

monur,

We do not currently have Forex data available for use in the TopstepTrader program. We are working toward a Forex Combine, but I have no timeline when. We will be letting the community know so stay tuned.

New question, after seeing 68 people got funded last month, is there a cap on the number of traders you will take on? Obviously there has to be some kind of number bc you guys dont have unlimited capital. Are you anywhere close to this number?

BarfMcgee,

Good question. We are nowhere near finding the maximum number of traders we can fund. We are ready and able to fund any traders who are successful in the Combine and FTP with no limit in sight.

I hope this puts your mind at ease BarfMcGee, rest assured, we are ready for you. Trade well.

Select enter meeting and nothing happens.
Any suggestions?

edited at 1:48 PST Is the meeting over? Finally got to a screen that was not greyed out and tag says meeting is over.

The problem with trading is one needs to be right twice!

The rescheduling of the webinar has caused some confusion, and many of you have opted out of receiving important notifications via email on the site. So I am making the below post so that I can point to it for the hundred or so people that have contacted me privately about this webinar.

See the below email that you should have received today, if you haven't purposely opted out:



Here is the link to re-register:

A quick question:

Can NT8 be used on the TST Combine and onwards, if funded?
