Michael Patak, the Founder of TopstepTrader, will be monitoring this thread so that he may answer any questions that you post here relating to TST products and services.

Please keep in mind that some customer service/technical support issues are best handled through proper channels at TST.

TST (TopstepTrader) is a well known scouting agency. Their Funded Trader Combine program focuses your attention on the most critical components to being a successful trader: discipline and risk. You can bring most any day trading methodology you wish to their program, and if you pass the Combine they will offer to fund you as a trader. Even if you have no desire to get funded, their Combine program is an excellent way to focus your attention where it needs to be.

In addition to this thread, I will also be asking Michael Patak to stop by on occasion for a casual webinar where he can answer questions via audio while also sharing his screen to visually demonstrate any points as needed. The date/time of those sessions will be announced here in this thread. These sessions will be limited to questions only, there is no prepared presentation. After the session ends, the recording will be posted in this thread.

You can find more on their website:
Trading Program Online | Learn to Trade | TopstepTrader

Feel free to ask any questions below and we'll do our best to get them answered.

The futures.io (formerly BMT) "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) series is by invitation only. It is part of a new program we are launching shortly called "Certified Trustworthy", something that has been months in the making. I will provide all the details of this new program as soon as it is ready for launch.

Mike

The actual statement so far as mentioned in the last webinar is by mid March, maybe sooner.

He is talking about NT7. @NinjaTrader Ray will be on futures.io (formerly BMT) February 27th to discuss NT8 once again, but if you look at the past NT8 webinar I think it is clear that NT8 will not be available this quarter.

Ray announces on the futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar. The end of March would coincide with the beginning of the second quarter. I'm trying to decide if I should buy the lifetime [email protected]$995 I'd break even on my current lease during the 16th month.
Have a nice weekend Mike. DB

If Ray agrees to an Ask Me Anything (AMA) thread you can ask him. For now lets focus on TopstepTrader for this thread
