A Badge of Honour

I too noticed that there are a whole lot of people who have "passed" their "Combine®"

However no one has stepped forward to state that they are actually making a living as a Professional Trader for the "Topstep Equity Partner®"

Or even, as a "Funded Trader®", to state that they have earned more from their share of trading profits than they have paid in subscription fees.

But I AM SURE that such people must be out there somewhere...

How dare I say such things!

I got their email saying I had to so my guess is its standard requirement in spite of what they say. at least in my case there was no reason. positive from day one and only one losing day and only ramped up when it showed my edge and I had the firepower and the mindset to do it. I didn't add to any losers or anything but I guess their money there rules but for me it's more waste of time as I see it. Finished combine 2 weeks ago and haven't heard from Hoag till now and it's next to impossible to talk to anyone other than the receptionist

See post #61

Still waiting to hear about anybody who has actually made any net profit doing this.

I would like to congratulate everyone who, having passed the Combine, (which is defined as a Contest of Skill in the Terms of Service of the Topstep website), will now have the opportunity to participate in the Live Trader Prep, another Contest of Skill. In other words, the prize of the first Contest is the chance to enter another Contest.

Meanwhile I would like to share that I have met the requirements of the Valued Customer Program at Kroger, and of the TriMet Transit Honored Citizen Program .

Your report is great. You are probably going to be a great trader. I think I remember that they start watching your trade reports, and if you are doing just the same -- in your instance, great -- then John steps in and taps your shoulder and you get called up sooner than the 10 days. So, no problem. Either way, to me it will give me a chance to practice slowing it down a step and trading smaller. I'm glad I have it. You will be fine.
