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.

One more question for you Bob:

What is the minimum amount of time one can qualify for the funded account in? I'm assuming 20 days? 10 for the combine and 10 days for the 'preparation'?

Yes, you got it.

Twenty days of actual trading, that is.

Just so long as you hit all the targets in those timeframes.

Bob.

One more question Bob. lol.

I pay the fee for the first month, and pass the combine, and my 'preparation' runs into the second month. Do I have to pay the monthly fee again?

No. The Funded Trader Prep is free. You only pay again if your Combine runs over.
