Long time lurker on this forum, I just went through your journal and I want to say that you got this.

I think that you are a breakeven trader right now, which is already a great success. It's a much easier to go from breakeven to profitable than it is to go from unprofitable to breakeven.

Keep up the good work!

The goal for today was to just bring home some green. I need to replenish my confidence after this string of losing days.
I took things slow and walked away with a small profit.

A solid winning day. I don't know why but my rithmic connection wasn't working during the first 30 minutes of the trading day, no matter which server I tried I simply could not get the data (or the accounts) to show up in ninjatrader. Then the issue magically fixed itself.

I really needed these two consecutive winning days in a row. I now feel like I'm back on track, it's so much easier to trade well when you have a few wins on your back.

Yes, there were issues with Rithmic. You can check the status here with Apex when there is funky stuff going on.

I swear to god there hasn't been A SINGLE week in which I didn't have some kind of problem with rithmic at least once. Most of the time it's data lag, but it's still very annoying.

Yes, I agree. It is terrible. But we are stuck with it.

I am missing your updates! Is everything OK? Are you taking a break? Whether things are working out or not let us know; you are among friends here.

I'm back!

Sorry I couldn't post in the last 10 days but I've been super busy and I stopped doing my daily trading review. I'll get back into it today.

Here is a status on the accounts:

Apex funded account
The first month of trading in this account is over and I'm down $140. No problem, this is a small loss that I can recover quickly.

Topstep combine
I'm currently up $340, taking it slow.
