Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Actually, it is not their money. It is yours....

Hi @cw30000,

I've pretty much decided not to argue any more about TST. For one thing, this isn't the thread for it, this is for Michael Patak of TST to answer questions. For another, I think everyone should do what they want. So, if anyone doesn't like the TST offer, they should not, of course, take it. That about sums it up for me.

I'm only responding now because you quoted me, but I really should not have made that post here, either. There is a vendor review thread for TST here, https://futures.io/vendors-product-reviews/11360-anybody-heard-topsteptrader-review.html, which is where I will keep my TST opinions from now on, assuming I have anything to say, and I urge others to do so as well. It helps to prevent a split topic.

Good trading.

Bob.

monur View Post
hello my question is I can not use FXCM forex data when I configured ninja trader according to topsteptrader.. Do you know how may I add FXCM demo account to ninjatrader configured to work with topsteptrader? It was an option before in the account connections tab, now it gone..

monur,

We do not currently have Forex data available for use in the TopstepTrader program. We are working toward a Forex Combine, but I have no timeline when. We will be letting the community know so stay tuned.

New question, after seeing 68 people got funded last month, is there a cap on the number of traders you will take on? Obviously there has to be some kind of number bc you guys dont have unlimited capital. Are you anywhere close to this number?

BarfMcgee,

Good question. We are nowhere near finding the maximum number of traders we can fund. We are ready and able to fund any traders who are successful in the Combine and FTP with no limit in sight.

I hope this puts your mind at ease BarfMcGee, rest assured, we are ready for you. Trade well.

Trouble logging in

Select enter meeting and nothing happens.
Any suggestions?

edited at 1:48 PST Is the meeting over? Finally got to a screen that was not greyed out and tag says meeting is over.

The problem with trading is one needs to be right twice!

The rescheduling of the webinar has caused some confusion, and many of you have opted out of receiving important notifications via email on the site. So I am making the below post so that I can point to it for the hundred or so people that have contacted me privately about this webinar.

See the below email that you should have received today, if you haven't purposely opted out:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Here is the link to re-register:

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

A quick question:

Can NT8 be used on the TST Combine and onwards, if funded?
