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.

EUREX contracts

Hi,

Do you plan to add Eurex (I am interested in ESTX and Bund) to the available exchanges-contracts for the Combine?

And, if that is the case, when?

Thanks,


Bern

FWIW, I use Sierra Charts with TST and Sierra uses a barchart feed that comes with the subscription that has TICK, A/D, etc. I have package 5 but it may also be standard on package 3, I'm not sure. Works fine in conjunction with CTS/TST.

bmmartin- We are communicating with Eurex on making their products available in our Combine. Currently we do not have the Eurex products available.

kman- I do not believe that code is available still. You may call our recruiting line at 312.252.9490 and a recruiter will let you know what he can help you with.

Mike.

I was wondering why the IDT will now be $500 with a 10 day 50k combine included instead of just offered independantly. Additionally, and more importantly, why is the increased profit split of 65/35 being eliminated? Wasn't it already reduced from 70/30?

This is the first i've heard of this. According to their website the IDT program is still $300 and results in a 65/35 profit split when getting funded. Im sure Topstep will chime in soon enough to clarify.

I certainly hope you are mistaken about the profit split change. Im sure the course is excellent and plan on doing it myself. But if the profit split benefit is removed, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot less people doing it.

You donít trade the markets; you only trade your beliefs about the markets.

BTW, there is a webinar from Ray Burchett on futures.io (formerly BMT):

Webinar: Ray Burchett - Intuitive Development for Traders (IDT)

My understanding is it covers some similar material that is covered more in-depth in his course.

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.

That's correct, the futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar deals with most of the topics which are covered in detail, very comprehensive and interactively in this course.

Since I went through the IDT course a couple of months ago, I can state that Ray does an awesome job and it was quite the best educational webinar on trader's psychology I've ever attended so far.
