It looks like a pretty cheap way to get trading funds if you can get through the 10 day combine.
Never tried it but here’s m2c - they’re looking for long gamma risk with short gamma hit ratio and compound the difficulty with activity minimums and holding period restrictions.
If you can legitimately pass this (you could also try to game it for a cheap shot at pl payout), then you shouldn’t have any trouble making money, regardless of whether TST funds you or not. Annualize those performance metrics and the pl potential from organic growth dwarfs any payout from trading TST’s money.
