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.

-- Big Mike

Well, there's the same question for me since I'm located in Germany, and it will be a quite hard piece of work for me to explain this kind of relationship with TST to German tax authorities as well...

In Germany there is a one and only Tax witch in person ***
She shouts as Arnie here on futures.io (formerly BMT) whispers: "WHERE's the MONEY?"

*** For those who don't know: her name is Merkel

Hehe, you got it my friend.

But don't ever forget our Minister of Finance, Mr. Schäuble...together they are really an 'unbeatable team'.

Having that said, let's go and transfer some money to Cyprus now. Wonder who'll be next...and sorry for getting a bit off topic.

The latest funded trader Caden399 only made $2098 in the 50K/10days minimum Combine (as opposed to the normal $3500 target). I don't see his Combine having a smaller DLL or MaxD, so if it was a costum Combine, what was his specifics? Maybe trading 4 different instrument???

If so, would the mini ES and the mini Dow count as 2 different instruments? Well, technically they are, but practically they are pretty much the same...

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.

Well, as it was just mentioned during the current TST webinar, Ninja Trader will 'probably be available in a month'...

Since Ninja Trader is now being postponed time and again for about 6 months, I seriously wonder if it ever will be available in a Combine...
