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.

Would be nice to hear from people who are funded. I wasn't aware of the "live combine prep". Why isn't it disclosed or did I just miss it?

There are many. As I run across them again I will try to remember to post here.

General combine questions should go in the main vendor thread.

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.
6)

I had this question in the TST AMA and now they actually disclose it on their website, but this wasn't always the case.The link to the disclosure was posted in that thread. :

We do clearly state this on the second sentence of the scouting critieria form (TopstepTrader - Where Talent Meets Opportunity) as well as the information box on the Combine page and emails once in the program.

If you have passed a TST combine and/or been funded, please just make a short post in this thread.

Also, just a tad bit more info would be even more welcomed I guess, since passing the Combine itself is pretty much just the entry exam in the whole process, and doesn't get you the gig itself.

So sharing like how many tries it took and where are you now in the process (Live Prep, funded since X weeks, blew funded after Y weeks) would give us more information, although understandable if not everyone wants to reveal so much.
But anyhow, thank you for everyone sharing...

Good job Josh. I followed some of your previous Combine and your openness. This is really good result for you.
Do you have to do a Live Prep before funding or are you funded or are you aiming to try for a bigger Combine?

Have a great day

Roll-overs

Guys,

Thought I would drop this in as a side note to the thread:

Starting on Friday last week you will see a number of recruits with BLUE C badges (typically those in the Combine have a black C badge), that signifies that they have received a Combine rollover(s) (no cost participation in the Combine). We want to commend these recruits by setting them apart from the others by giving them the blue C distinction.

Trading consistently and profitably is hard work. Anyone covering their costs, breaking even, or realizing profits consistently is trading better than 90% of the futures traders out there as recognized by many trading psychologists. The blue "C" badges indicate the recruits/traders that have reached this level of proficiency in the Combine by achieving a "roll over." If you have the chance to check out the chat room you will see all the updated blue C badges.

Congratulations and great work to all these recruits/traders. Your hard work is paying off. Keep trading well.

I've done a poor job maintaining this thread. But here is @xelaar's funded trader interview:

Thanks @DarkPoolTrading

It was pre-recorded due to the time difference. I missed hearing it live and wasn't sure when it was on so I very much appreciate the link.

cheers
