Passed 50k Combine

After many unsuccessful attempts, I finally passed a 50k Combine and Funded Trader Preparation as well...so I'm a funded trader for about 2.5 weeks now.

Glad to hear, and it's good to hear from you again.

This is so. But it's effectively much more than you $1,500 you mentioned: for the $150k Combine you refer to, the max drawdown is actually $4,500.

Not sure, but is not the drawdown you refer to ($4,500) only to the watermark?
The watermark rises to your starting account balance (once you have accumulated profits of $4,500) meaning you are drawing down into your own accumulated profits (the amount above the watermark).

This means you are only drawing down to into your own accumulated earnings, - is that not correct?

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

I am in US on work permit which clearly says I can't work for any other organization. Working with TST is like doing contract job and you get 1099 Misc for US residents. I am not allowed to earn that way.

I can do trading in my own account and get 1099B.

Thanks Chipps. Would a non US resident get a 1099 Misc (or something like that sent to whatever country they are a resident of?)

Yes, as far as I know - it's a trailing max drawdown, explained (and even illustrated) here: https://help.topsteptrader.com/hc/en-us/articles/235514547
