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.

Vk79- yes, our team is working to get other exchanges. Currently you can now trade this product in the Combine but you are permitted at the funded level (after 10 trading days on the funded account).

I can trade it in Combine? Above sentence is confusing. Please clarify.

I think if you replace "now" with "not" (a typo), it becomes clear. You can do it after 10 days as a funded trader, not in a Combine....

See TsT FAQ on the subject: Permissible Products/Times to Trade ? Help & Feedback Center

vk79- Bob is correct. Typo on my part. Currently you can not trade ICE or EUREX products in the Combine but you are permitted at the funded level.

Thanks Bob.

Frustrating

Hi there,

I have a strategy that requires me to hold positions through 3:10-5pm CT. I have asked your staff if I could have a continuous combine that allows me to do this but they have replied saying that it would be impossible.

Why are you forcing traders to close positions at this time when a lot of people including me have a trading plan which works better when we can hold through this period? If we can prove ourselves, why limit us?

Is it possible that this limitation could be lifted now, or in the future?

Thanks,

Erfan.

Efran- You may customize certain rules of the Combine but you would need to first contact us at either support@topsteptrader.com or 888.407.1611. We have traders that have customized their Combine to better fit within their trading plan/strategy.

I hope that helps.

I am aware you can customise the rules slightly. I have already gone through a custom combine. However you fail to address my main concern. Why can we not hold through the time period 3:10-5pm CT? This is one thing I need changed most importantly. I need to hold a position through this time for my custom combine.

Could that be possible?

Nourozi- We were not able to do this earlier this year, but have made adjustments to our back end to permit holding positions through 3:10pm. This is something we do on a case by case basis and is only permitted for specific platforms. Please contact support to get further details on customizing your time.

Thanks,

Ok, well that is good news. Based on an email to your support team yesterday, it seems they are oblivious to this possibility. That is why I posted my concern on this forum. I will follow up with your support team again and hopefully get to some positive conclusion.

Efran- This is something that is very new. Support should be up to date with these changes at the Custom Combine level.

Ok, I guess since it is at a Custom Combine level only, so you would not announce it officially/publicly.

I shall book my Custom Combine meeting.

Thanks.
