Like most of our traders, TopstepTrader wasn't the first place that David C. in Valle del Cauca, Colombia came to trade futures. In fact, in a recent interview, he said that he has been trading for a year, but only entered the Trading Combine® after blowing up his second brokerage account.
Since joining TopstepTrader, David has shown an ability to learn from those losses, demonstrating that he can profit and manage risk well.
In two months as a funded trader, David has withdrawn $7,715 in profits - gains racked up while demonstrating incredible risk management. In 38 trading days, David was profitable on 25. But David also minimized his losing days. His largest daily loss was $306.82, while on the average losing day, he lost just $167.69. Comparatively, on his average winning day, he made $395.81 with a largest gain of $1,263.79.
We recently connected with David to talk about his journey trading and what advice he might have for other traders.
