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.

New COMBINE idea


What do you think about new combine with LTP rules ?


Reasoning behind it :

Lets say you try 10 times and you pass Combine with Combine rules and then LTP with additional rule that
makes it totally different, then its bad. To me it ment I cant trade CL like in first Continues Combine that I passed in 28 days

It would be better if you make 2 changes in Combine :
- additional rule daily loss limit = weekly loss limit
- and profit goal 1,5 x

If we add together Combine + LTP rules then that is actually what we need to pass before we can go LIVE.

Example 50'000 $ Continues Combine with 3000 $ target is actually 4500 $ as target + rule daily loss limit = weekly loss limit.

Lemons,

First off, thank you for the thoughts and ideas. For now this is what we see working for our traders but we are always willing to listen to good ideas.

Thank you again,

Hoag

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
Lets be honest its is different ball game.

Lets take basketball, my favorite sport
In regular season free throw line = free throw line
but in play offs and finals free throw line = 3 point line

Lemons,

The $10K and $30k Combines do not have weekly loss limits set when a trader advances to the Funded Account. If the weekly loss limit is a concern, we advise traders to enter one of these Combines.

I hope that helps.

Please confirm that max loss limit in 30 k = 1500 $ and if LTP needed then in LTP its also 1500 $
not cut in half like in 50 k Combine ?

Lemons- I can confirm that the $30k has no weekly loss limit and the Max Drawdown is $1,500.

You can see greater detailed for Funded Accounts found in our "learn more" section. As you will notice there is no weekly loss limit for the $10k and $30k Funded Accounts (this is the same risk as LTP, which is now called Funded Trader Preperation (FTP)).

Let me know if you have any further questions.
