Can I switch Trading Platforms?

If you decide you want to switch platforms after starting your Trading Combine, we have a few options for you:

  • If you've selected a platform on the Rithmic Data Feed, then you can connect to any other platform on the Rithmic Data Feed by following that platform's connection instructions. (Data Feed details for each platform are here: List of Supported Platforms.)

  • If you want to switch to a platform that uses a different data feed, this will require a new Trading Combine. Multiple Trading Combines are permitted, so it's up to you to keep or cancel your original subscription. Log in to your existing Topstep account and click "Start a New Combine" to purchase a new Trading Combine with your desired platform. (Do not create a new Topstep profile)

  • If you want to switch platforms for a Trading Combine with no trading activity, please contact our support team, and we will do our best to facilitate the switch.
