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.

List of FIO traders who have passed the TST combine or funded

I know there are many, many members on futures.io (formerly BMT) who have passed the TST combine. I cannot keep track of them all, so I thought it would be helpful to maintain a list here in this thread.

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

Mike

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)

Passed the 30k, was not able to complete the "live combine prep", my largest 10 day losing day, was greater than my largest 10 day winning day.

Hi addchild,

I'm a little confuse when you mention you were not able to complete the "live combine prep". I thought once you pass the Combine you are allow to trade a Live account wih the same Max Drawdown of the Combine you complete it. Can you please elavorate about this "live combine prep"?

Thank you

As far as I am aware they ask every person that completes a combine to trade for extra days, with a reduced profit target, and no minimum time, but they do add a few other restrictions.

addchild,

Thank you for your reply. What are the other restrictions? Lets said you make it to the Live Trader Preparation period, do you still need to make $10,000 cushion to start making money on the $150k account?

I passed their 150K, 10 day combine on my second attempt. First attempt i qualified for a refund/rollover but was not eligible for funding so never made it beyond that.

Well done to trading2win for getting funded. Im not sure if he is an active poster on futures.io (formerly BMT) (or what his username is), but he mentions in the below interview being a member.

Congrats!

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?
