Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) April 07, 2011 -- The TopstepTrader recruitment process utilizes a one-of-a-kind program, the Combine, to evaluate and monitor recruit's trading performance in a real-time, live market simulation. The Combine provides a risk-free way for traders to gain experience in the trading industry and test their trading strategies under live, real-time market conditions all while being scouted by proprietary trading firms and equity backers.
Recruits who are profitable and show an increased aptitude for trading will be recommended by TopstepTrader scouts and will be paired with an interested equity partner. Live traders are never required to provide any of their own capital and receive extremely competitive profit splits, thus the Combine serves to ensure recruits are disciplined, consistent, and profitable traders before going live.
For those just learning to trade, TopstepTrader offers one and four week training sessions. Much of becoming a successful trader has to do with jumping in the deep-end and learning to swim. The TopstepTrader experience will teach recruits who are new to trading how to read charting software, navigate trading platforms, manage capital, and learn valuable trading techniques, in a risk-free environment.
The Combine provides recruits the opportunity to develop their trading techniques as they trade with real-time, live market data on a professional trading platform. TopstepTrader also provides each recruits in the Combine or training program access to a live interactive trader's forum, pre-market morning reports, and best of all, the 'TsT Live Squawk Radio' broadcast daily from the Chicago trading room floor.
For those looking to trade with a more competitive edge, TopstepTrader offers a variety of unique trading Challenges. These Challenges allow traders to compete against one other for the chance to win monetary prizes. TopstepTrader gives challengers the tools to compete so they can see how they rank against their peers and prove who is the top trader.
