Looking Back, Moving Forward: A Review of 2018 at Topstep and Preview of 2019

Posted by TopstepTrader on January 18, 2019

We know, we know. These "new year" themed posts are supposed to come out at the beginning of January, not in the middle of it. But since our traders have been so busy getting ready to crush it in 2019, and we had so much to reflect upon in 2018, we decided to give you a break from all the themed posts out there.

Break's over.

2018 was a banner year at TopstepTrader for a whole host of reasons. In case you missed some of the milestones, we broke it all down, and are incredibly excited to give you a glimpse of what's on the horizon.

TopstepTrader has Funded 500+ Traders in 2018

Posted by TopstepTrader on June 29, 2018

Have you heard the news? TopstepTrader has funded 500+ futures traders SINCE JANUARY!

That's a pace of funding that we've never seen before, thanks to market volatility and more traders than ever interested in trading our capital. And it has enabled stories like Mykhalio in the Ukraine, who put up our largest trading day ever yesterday, profiting $8,100 in Crude Oil.

But TopstepTrader's success is not just about the traders now earning funding. We continue to fund profitable traders like Charles B., who has been trading with TopstepTrader since November 2015. 

To commemorate the occasion, TopstepTrader's Founder and CVO Michael Patak joined CEO Jay Rudman to go over some of the highlights and talk with the community. Check out the video below.

Did You Miss What Barron's Said About TopstepTrader...

Posted by TopstepTrader on February 26, 2018

This weekend in a profile of TopstepTrader, Barron's completely nailed our value proposition — that TopstepTrader is the place to go to safely engage in markets, while gaining access to up to $150,000 in futures buying power:

"TopstepTrader, which was founded in Chicago in 2012, has a service to help the at-home day trader develop good habits and an appreciation of risk management, and if funded by the firm, keep 80% of the profits."

Founder and chief visionary officer Michael Patak [...] wants to provide a learning environment for rookies, and offer those who are successful a chance to trade his firm’s money. “Our goal is to make you be accountable for your actions, and follow basic risk criteria,” Patak says.

There's a whole lot more to the article, and we'd recommend you give it a read.

And while we love what Barron's said, we're even more proud of what traders have said about us.
