earn funding by Passing the trading combine®


What is the Trading combine?

The Trading Combine is an experiential learning and evaluation program for futures traders. Traders grow and test their skills in simulated markets, and earn funding upon achieving certain trading objectives. While earning a Funded Account® is one possible goal, the discipline and habits promoted by the Trading Combine benefit traders of all experience levels.
