“It's a fundamental shift in attitude that accounts for their success, not some brilliant realization about the market, as most people erroneously assume. This erroneous assumption is prevalent among traders simply because very few of them really understand, at the deepest levels, just how critical a component attitude is in determining one's success.”

TopstepTrader Combine #9 Final Results

Combine #9 complete and a few more things learned.

At the beginning of this Combine I had a couple simple objectives, and I said:
First is a results-oriented goal, which is to earn a rollover on this Combine (stay within all Combine rules, and finish with a profit of zero or greater).

Second is a behavior-oriented goal, which is to try to be consistent with one set of charts/timeframes for the duration of this Combine.
I obviously didn't meet the first objective. I did relatively well with the second objective, however I don't know that it was really something that was useful/helpful.

I will likely be taking a different course for my next Combine which I should be starting soon.
