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.

titan- Passing 7 Combines is excellent! Failing Live Trader Prep doesn't mean you failed as a live trader or failed period. The fact you are trading and working towards objectives will instill discipline and understanding in yourself as a trader. The more you know about yourself the more you know how to fix your trading in areas you struggle and recognize areas you have strengths to leverage those. This is growing as a trader.

Lastly, you can contact our scout team and we would be happy to provide feedback if you so choose.

Don't give up, Titan.

You are already way ahead of the crowd with what you have done. I don't know you or your circumstances but you could be a hair's breadth away from making it.

There's people teaching others how to trade who couldn't pass 7 out of 8.

Look out for a PM...

Well said Dionysus and I agree. Rolling over 8 Combines is a scratch trader (slash sound trader). A scratch trader typically has a great trading foundation of which there is a lot of potential to build off of.

Trading2win- Yes I know you well. You had popped up on the scouting radar many times. Let me know if you would like to speak with anyone in scouting.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

@titantrader
what exactly caused you failing in LTP while you were successful in combines ? are LTP rules more strict?

Yes, the trading parameters tightened. It took me awhile to adapt. And the rules in the live trading account changed as well. I was not able to adapt to the live account rules. But I'm planning to attempt to go live again next year.

ChrisAP?- If so nice work in your Combine. The scout team updated me a notable recruit in the Combine hit the radar.

As a word of advice when you start live, just focus on doing what you do. There is no rush, but you also want to keep pressure on yourself to keep continuing to perform. Some traders get into a relaxed state, you can't do that. Trading is ALWAYS uncomfortable... Getting used to being comfortable while being uncomfortable is a good skill to have.

Trade smart, looking forward to seeing you as a Senior trader soon.
