Would be nice to hear from people who are funded. I wasn't aware of the "live combine prep". Why isn't it disclosed or did I just miss it?

There are many. As I run across them again I will try to remember to post here.

General combine questions should go in the main vendor thread.

I had this question in the TST AMA and now they actually disclose it on their website, but this wasn't always the case.The link to the disclosure was posted in that thread. :

We do clearly state this on the second sentence of the scouting critieria form (TopstepTrader - Where Talent Meets Opportunity) as well as the information box on the Combine page and emails once in the program.

If you have passed a TST combine and/or been funded, please just make a short post in this thread.

Also, just a tad bit more info would be even more welcomed I guess, since passing the Combine itself is pretty much just the entry exam in the whole process, and doesn't get you the gig itself.

So sharing like how many tries it took and where are you now in the process (Live Prep, funded since X weeks, blew funded after Y weeks) would give us more information, although understandable if not everyone wants to reveal so much.
But anyhow, thank you for everyone sharing...

Good job Josh. I followed some of your previous Combine and your openness. This is really good result for you.
Do you have to do a Live Prep before funding or are you funded or are you aiming to try for a bigger Combine?

Have a great day

Guys,

Thought I would drop this in as a side note to the thread:

Starting on Friday last week you will see a number of recruits with BLUE C badges (typically those in the Combine have a black C badge), that signifies that they have received a Combine rollover(s) (no cost participation in the Combine). We want to commend these recruits by setting them apart from the others by giving them the blue C distinction.

Trading consistently and profitably is hard work. Anyone covering their costs, breaking even, or realizing profits consistently is trading better than 90% of the futures traders out there as recognized by many trading psychologists. The blue "C" badges indicate the recruits/traders that have reached this level of proficiency in the Combine by achieving a "roll over." If you have the chance to check out the chat room you will see all the updated blue C badges.

Congratulations and great work to all these recruits/traders. Your hard work is paying off. Keep trading well.

I've done a poor job maintaining this thread. But here is @xelaar's funded trader interview:

Thanks @DarkPoolTrading

It was pre-recorded due to the time difference. I missed hearing it live and wasn't sure when it was on so I very much appreciate the link.

cheers
