So, you think you can make it in the competitive world of trading? Now, you have a chance to dance because TopstepTrader built "The Combine.”

As an international scouting agency in search of undiscovered talent, the Combine was created. The Combine is a new, proprietary, and online trading simulation program that allows you to trade non-value currency in live markets. While trading in the Combine, prospects are being monitored and evaluated. Those that are successful are introduced to an equity partner and can begin live futures trading careers for powerhouse firms like Morgan Stanley, UBS, or a local firm. This is the unique opportunity for anyone to test their mettle and see if they have what it takes to earn a potentially lucrative trading career.

Founder and CEO, Mike Patak, owns Patak Trading Partners, and wanted to develop a system that allows a market and number savvy candidate the opportunity to test their skills in a sports-like, interactive online model. Patak makes the analogy to minor and major league baseball, “Recruits in the Combine are in the minors. Live traders are the pros. We scout these minor league players, collect trade reports, resumes, data questionnaires and more while we help progress them to the next level. When we think they’re ready, we introduce them to an equity partner with a complete package, not just a résumé. We have seen great success moving our recruits to the majors.”

When people think trading, they think Wall Street, they think fast cars, they think, how do I become a trader? There are barriers at every angle, especially for someone without a finance degree. TopstepTrader is the answer. Through informative learning and trading tools, Combine recruits are given the necessary edge to earn a successful futures trading career.

Additionally, TopstepTrader created “Squawk Radio,” an informative blend of market talk and real-time updates broadcasting live, daily, from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Live traders and Combine recruits alike can gain an insurmountable advantage and take their trading to a new level.

TopstepTrader is becoming the authority for people that want to learn to trade. The company is run and backed by veteran traders that have navigated financial turmoil, and have stayed on top. If you want to learn to trade, this is the company that will make it happen.
