October Funded Trader Shout-outs!

Posted by TopstepTrader on November 06, 2019

Our funded traders were on fire in October, and there were a number of big withdrawals to prove it. If you follow Topstep on Instagram, you know we've been congratulating traders individually whenever they take a hefty payout (occasionally we do it from a petting zoo). This month, more than a dozen traders earned a coveted "Trader Shout-out" from the Topstep Team. We're super excited to see who gets honored next by our terrible acting.

You can see the entirety of the Instagram congratulations-compilation below. Hoag makes an appearance, and Topstep founder Michael Patak may or may not get mauled by a domesticated animal.
