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.

Yet another combine pass

Hi all - I've just recently joined the "I have passed a combine" club. It was a 10 day 50k combine and it was my first attempt (just lucky?). Anyway I should have read more of the posts here on futures.io (formerly BMT) about the combines before I started. I was a little naive and thought that my results might be good enough to skip LTP - WRONG. I'm about to enter LTP if I accept the conditions to see if I can repeat what I've already done - with a reduced target and more time.

That's still not my biggest concern. If I manage to fulfill the LTP (get lucky again) and make it to funded trader then I'm into the funded trader program days 1 -10. I have 10 days in which they are prepared to put up risk capital, on magic day 11 it disappears as the account can't return below 0. It actually disappears before then as the trailing max stop loss kicks in if you are profitable. I'm also going to have to be the luckiest that I could possibly be because I will need to build enough risk capital to continue trading.

I really don't know how this all relates to trading a 50k account. But I'll probably have to continue this discussion in the other thread.

I too would really like to hear from funded traders that are still with TST and who are able to make a steady income

Good work
LTP seems mandatory.

In one hand they make COMBINE easier to pass ( lowering objective, adding continues combines, 1 contract combine and so on .. )

but lately it seems everybody must take LTP.

Pay attention in LTP they add additional rule, weekly loss limit = daily loss limit.

Looking at how my LTP thus far goes (as well as others in the past), I can absolutely understand them.

But 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 they 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.

I think this suggestion / question shoud be posted also to TST AMA thred

OK I did it

Hi Lemons

Thanks for your comments.

Yep - will be carefully considering the rules and incorporating them into my trade plan.

Cheers

Greg

50 k Comine Profite Target 3000$
If LTP needed then LTP Profit target is 1500$

Total Profit target is 4500$
4500/3000 = 1,5
