I have been just passed the combine, and I am doing the LTP.

Why is LTP hard? I dont think LTP is hard, is just simple prooving you can do it again and again and again. But there are some other new rules what you have to follow, which could make it harder ofcourse:
- You are allow to trade only 2 lots till you are not reaching the 1500USD profit, than 3 lots then etc... They are refering it as a scaling plan: Funded Trader: Scaling Plan ? Help & Feedback Center
- Your profit target is less, during your combine, but because of the scaling plan we could say so it is the same (less profit, but you have to build up the account with small size)
- You are not allow to trade the news at all! You have to get out before it, and jump in after it. No news and spike trading at all
- You have to follow your plan every day. No scratch trade, if you are ready in 2 days. Do it again and again and again...
- You have 60 days to complie!

How can you fail? Only in one way. You get lucky to get your combine ready (1 lucky day, 1 lucky swing 1 lucky runner etc...) but building up from small size is more than luck...

Other reasons? I dont think so there could be other reasons. But If I fail, I will let you know a good one



hi, could you give more details about the no scratch trade please

thanks

What he meant was that a trader should keep trading his normal style even if say he reaches the LTP profit target after 4 days - i.e. shouldn't spend the rest 6 days taking 1 tick profits or something to 'not lose'.

Congrats to all those who made it.

I'm seriously thinking about doing the Combine either the 30or50k to start. Thinking about January or Feburary. I am going to start scouring journals and find all the nuances. I might ask for a custom, as they say you can customize your parameters. Specifically they ask you to trade 10of10 days. I'm going to ask for 4to6 days of profit vs being forced to trade all 10. That doesn't always make sense. If I get no home runs during that time, to keep chipping singles and doubles for the goal.


My method is of hitting singles and doubles, if a home run comes along to try to milk it, if not keep chipping for singles and doubles. Why expose yourself to a Z day after a huge trend day or two?

10 days is stand for 10 trading days. You don't forced to trade the market every day. Your choice. You have 30 days to compile 10 trading days. Hopes it clarify

For the 10 day combine it's 30 days, not 60. Which boils down to roughly trading every 2nd business day, on average that is.


Thx. The live trader prep was 60 days. Did not crosschecked. Edited my post to avoid missinformation

If you are in a "10 day" Combine, you have 30 calendar days to complete it (which will be about 22 or 23 trading days, depending on the month.)

You can also do a "continuous" Combine, which is renewed every month on a subscription basis, so it does not have an actual time limit at all. You still have to trade at least 10 days in total, but can take as long as you want to accumulate them. You are required to do at least 2 months in the continuous subscription, unless you pass the Combine sooner.

But you never have to trade "10 of 10 days" in a row, whichever one you select.

See TsT Help Page

Bob.

Edit: just to be clear, on the continuous you have a minimum requirement of 10 traded days, but you can trade as many as you need after that in order to meet the Combine objectives.

Thank you guys. I misunderstood, thinking total time was 10days and you had to trade all 10. 10 in a month is a lot less pressure.

And if you do the continuous then it can be 10 trading days out of 2-3 months. Which is a lot less pressure.

Passed the combine took 5 in total including rollovers. Last one I did was a month earlier and started off on the wrong foot but got a rollover. This one was ok from get go. Now waiting for their Email.

My guess is nowadays everyone has to do LTP despite their denying this. Seen guys with a Straight"A's" combine doing LTP so must be the norm nowadays.
