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.

Funded as of today. Took me 6 free 10 day combine rollovers (Account > 0 but below 1500) to finally get funded on the 7th and one failed Funded Trader Prep. The final test is when one is funded. The max account drawdown doesn't apply anymore after the 10th day. In order to stay funded, one needs to keep account balance above 0 after the 10th trading day. Looking forward to this opportunity.

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
After tanking 6, finally passed my 7th combine and just had a pretty bad first day of Funded Trader Preparation.
Regardless whether I make it this time or the next or a year from now, it's still a pretty big achievement for me. The combine rules really forced me to put more structure into how I approach my trading and I think it's paying off: I still take dumb trades but they're becoming fewer and less harmful.

@TopstepTrader, any work of advice or encouragement?

Very nice to read this. Good work -- it puts you well ahead of the curve, I would say.

Bob.

Thank you!
50k combine, though a 30k would have been easier since I usually have 2 contracts max, 3 in exceptional cases.
Since June this year (3rd combine onwards) CL only.
At the beginning it was max daily drawdowns washing me out. Max total drawdown killed my last combine, due to my average losing day being 3.5x the size of my average winning day. This is a problem I'm still struggling with but the last combine had enough large winning days to offset the (fewer) losing days.

update: LOL I blew it on the second day trading in a totally different way to what took me here in the first place. Oh well, looks like I'm starting that 30k combine sooner than I thought.
