One more question for you Bob:

What is the minimum amount of time one can qualify for the funded account in? I'm assuming 20 days? 10 for the combine and 10 days for the 'preparation'?

Yes, you got it.

Twenty days of actual trading, that is.

Just so long as you hit all the targets in those timeframes.

One more question Bob. lol.

I pay the fee for the first month, and pass the combine, and my 'preparation' runs into the second month. Do I have to pay the monthly fee again?

No. The Funded Trader Prep is free. You only pay again if your Combine runs over.
