TopstepTrader funded 159 traders in February — and we're on pace to eclipse that number in March. It's pretty common for new funded traders to want to get a quick start. But oftentimes fast is slow and slow is fast.
It took our funded traders at least 15 trading days to get into their Funded Account®. Now, there is no rush to make money. They have all the time in the world.
That's why our coaches wanted to make this PSA: the longer you trade, the more you get paid. The key to making a long-term career out of trading is to take your time and grow exponentially. In a year, you can be in a very different position.
On the other hand, if you try to rush and start trading 10 contracts as soon as you can, your likelihood of survival falls drastically. Here is our coaches' advice. Enjoy.
