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.

-- Big Mike

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.

CONGRATULATION. A special song for you.

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.

My understanding (which could be wrong) is that one of the main objectives traders sign up for combines is to get funded. For some, the process sometimes turns into a journey of self discovery (or not) as a trader.

I'm going through LTP right now.

I think if you do the combine you reinforce good trading habits. I honestly think this is more important than the actual funding. People focus on the fish instead of the process of learning how to fish.

Take the '$50,000 Combine' if you complete the objectives and can do so consistently then you are literally $5000 and the same discipline and consistency away from making $300 per day. To me that's way more valuable than any money they could fund me with.

Having some external validation is also valuable. I've been trading my personal account with much greater success and profitability since passing my combine.

Hi EastCoastTrader,

Congratulations on getting funded! Also, just as much, if not more, congratulations on your development. Hopefully, over the last 15 months you have learned a great deal about not only your trading, but yourself. We're proud to have you as one of our funded traders and even prouder to have helped you get there in a safe and rewarding way. Your journey has definitely been an admirable one.

To your continued success,

Michael

Congratulations on passing the Combine. You're absolutely right about discipline and process, those are two of the most important pieces to becoming a successful trader. Unfortunately, it's easy for traders to overlook the "grind", so to speak, and fall for the potential rewards. We see it happen all too often in our line of work, so props to you for staying focused on the task at hand and developing properly. Most don't. We look forward to your continued development in a funded account.

Keep trading well,

mp

Will fix that later, although I believe there should be a new PW & acct-no for LTP.
