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.

Could someone clarify for me why a person would do more than one combine?

This was my first combine, but I would think that people would do more than one combine if:

1) They didn't pass their combine

2) You were funded but broke the funded trader rules.

Would you only try once at anything else in life? If you failed your driving test the first time would you never try again? What about applying for a job? You apply once and aren't hired are you then doomed to never get a job?

Each combine is different and each person is different. Some may need a few times to get their method and mind correct so they can pass.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
he might be talking about why would you take another one if you have already passed one.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

Possible. Typically you only have to do a second combine if you failed the first one or blew LTP or funded status.

And from what I've seen everyone does LTP, I have yet to see one person pass the combine and go straight to funded.

ya true, i've heard of a bunch of ppl only having to do a few days and not go through the full LTP. either way, if you're profitable, it shouldn't be an issue.

Getting funded - 2nd time the charm

I'm getting funded. This is the second time I passed a combine and first time I passed an LTP. Took me 15 months and countless combines.

trying more and more combines gives more knowledge about the own trading style, learning from mistakes, another chance finding the style to trade profitable
... but reading some combine-reports here on futures.io (formerly BMT) sometimes it seems to me that the fees, the platform constraints and the given trading support(?) is not the ideal place to have for a good learning curve. Jumping from one contest to another or even one step higher ... isn't this hunting for the ideal thing and not happening to most doing this combine? Sorry, thats just my thinking, can be wrong ... somehow it reminds me of the movie The Island where they hope to finally get a ticket to the island, but the island is not existing, just the end for them.
