Being a trader, and not just someone who trades, requires that you follow a routine for every part of the day, not just the hours in front of your computer. The Trading Combine develops the disciplined mindset necessary for sustained success.
Professional traders limit how much they are willing to lose over a given period. Daily, weekly, and max trailing drawdowns ensure that a few bad trades don’t sink your account.
The size you trade should always be compatible with the equity in your account. Our position limits and scaling plan encourage you to keep this balance.
Just because you can trade around the clock doesn’t mean you always should. Traders need to be aware of volatility and illiquidity events to avoid outsized losses.
We realize that no one is perfect—even trading robots make mistakes. If you break a rule in the Trading Combine, the Reset enables you to start over in your current Step. The cost of a Reset is meant to build discipline by ensuring that you have “skin in the game.” The live markets can be much less forgiving.
