Topstep 2020 Quick Takes

Always Room To Grow

It looks like every news source out there is spitting out a “Top 10” list of all the bad things that happened in 2020. So we’ve decided to spare you the drama and give you some good old-fashioned, wholesome, encouraging news!

While there were a tremendous amount of setbacks in 2020, there were also plenty of opportunities. Topstep traders rose to the occasion and took advantage of those opportunities to break records and reach new milestones. Right now, we’re going to focus on the good stuff.

Over 6,000 Trading Accounts Funded

The real story from 2020 is about resolve and resilience. While we reflect on everything that has been thrown at us this past year, you should take pride in your effort to rise above the chaos and uncertainty to improve yourself in ways you might not have known possible. That’s the real story.

How many of you can say that you had a serious plan to become a professional trader in 2020? Was it a conscious decision or a twist of fate that brought you to the financial markets? Whatever it was, we made it our mission at Topstep to roll with the punches right alongside you to provide the best experience possible and make sure you were learning the ropes without getting hurt by the wild swings.

That said, we’d like to pay tribute to all of the Topstep traders who earned Funded Accounts in 2020. The boom in retail trading popularity brought a desire to learn and train in a safe setting without spending a lot of money. Topstep is happy to have facilitated that for many of you, and we will continue to do so in bigger and better ways for many years to come.

More Than $2,000,000 In Funded Trader Withdrawals

They say the first million is the hardest, and they’re right. It took Topstep close to 10 years to hit the $1,000,000 mark in Funded Trader withdrawals for a single year. We finally hit that milestone back in August (2020), and then just a few short months later, we hit $2,000,000!

So, to all of the Funded Traders who took a piece of the more than $2,000,000 in withdrawals in 2020, we would like to say “Well Done” and give you a great big pat on the back. Please don’t get too comfortable, though, because we’re expecting even bigger things from all of you in 2021!

Always Moving Forward

Topstep is no longer just a stop on the road to becoming a professional trader. We are now the ultimate funding opportunity for any aspiring trader. We’re taking our vision to the next level, and the changes we’re installing are to benefit you, not just this week or this month, but well beyond that first winning trade. 

Our focus is on long-term success. We want you to succeed at every level, and we’re hoping you will help us continue to build Topstep into the industry leader it’s destined to be. There are no shortcuts to success. 

Trade Well!
