At TopstepTrader, our mission is to help anyone, anywhere earn the financial freedom to pursue their dreams. That is why Michael Patak started the Trading Combine® as a way for traders to safely learn and profit from futures markets - without risking blowing up real-money accounts.
In this week's Trader Behavior video, Michael and Hoag talk about the five steps that traders need to take to help them on the path to financial freedom: (1) make a trading plan; (2) stick to your trading plan; (3) build the account; (4) increase leverage; and (5) pay yourself.
The challenge is that these steps seem simple, but they're not. Traders get in trouble when they skip steps - for example, by adding leverage before they've sufficiently built an account up.
