Hope everyone is doing well, I wanted to do an update on my trading as I know a few of you have been asking. On Friday of last week, I came about 200 away from breaking a rule and I had a nice long chat with the funded department.
They gave me two choices to trade on Monday and break the rule or start a “funded trader Development” combine where I trade in sim for 10 days have a small profit target then I can come back to my funded account with no strings attached, start brand new, So the good news I don’t lose my money I already made and I don’t lose my funded account. Rather than breaking the rule in the first 10 days and losing my account it was a no brainer to take the redevelopment.
It was terrible trading on my part, I leveraged up at the wrong times, I broke all my personal rules in the first 10 days of trading and it was a huge learning lesson. I had a great day to start the week on January 4th but I got aggressive and greedy. To make it even worse TST updated all the rules on the same Friday and took away the ones that always got me like 45% profitable days. Anyway no excuses.
All my own fault, it sucks to be on the side line right now but It’s a learning opportunity on what not to do and believe me I have learned my lesson. I have to make $1500 in 10 trading days and now 2 days in I’m already over that.
So ill be back trading my funded account in less than 2 weeks and Ill be ready. This business will know you down but its all about getting back on your feet, realizing what you have done and moving forward.
