I’ve been in the trading business for quite a while now. The working process of Top Step Trader is such that you have to complete a trial period with them which is usually of one month duration in which they judge you on your trading abilities. If you successfully manage to show financial gains in the said period, then TST would fund your account for future trades. This way you’d get the profits without putting in your own investment and TST would also take a percentage of profit out of that.
While I was on the said trial period with them, I performed pretty well and my account history showed good trades which gave financial profits. I contacted TST after the 1 month trial and despite of the good performance, they wanted me to extend the trial period by 15 days. This was unfair but I still agreed because Mike, one of their senior persons, assured me of the funding after that.
During this extended 15 days, I noticed things that were not right with my account. In the starting two days, I left my account on $800 and ended the day but on logging in again, I found my funds lowered. I was raged with this activity happening with my account, so I called up Top Step Trader contact no (888) 407-1611 where they were themselves clueless about what would have gone wrong.
After 2 days again, I saw activity with my account balance with funds going down. I again contacted them on mail this time on the provided email id [email protected] but this time too I was not given a satisfactory answer. I was losing my trust in this institution.
After a week, the gains that I had made in the day’s activity were reset. This time I lost my cool and contacted the helpdesk asking them furiously as to why did this happen. Here they said that I wasn’t supposed to trade in this one particular market that I did, so they have reset my gains. What the fuck is that supposed to mean?
These assholes were continuously manipulating my account and not acknowledging it. If they do not intend to fund a deserving trader, why are they bloody making a fool of us at the first place?
I had a word with Mike also after these incidents and he clearly denied TST’s involvement in any such activity. Also, he said since I was not doing very well with the trades in the past two weeks I am not eligible for funding. He is also one hell of a swindler.
These assholes have gulped my funds by lowering them whenever they wanted, reset my gains for undue reasons and now denied funding at the end.
Never ever think of trading with Top Step Trader; they are nothing but cheaters and thieves. They do not fund your trading, instead would steal your own initial investment.
