My Journey to a Funded Trader with Oneuptrader.com

Good day all,

Today is the 5th November 2018. I am going to share my experience and journey to get to a funded trading program with Oneuptrader. I have been trading for some time and it took a while to get the hang of things and use to their rules. The hardest one is the trading times. It sucks for us Asian traders.

I will be posting my trades each day with screenshots. As I am a scalper I am going to focus on the YM. This is because I trade Asia and Europe (Open) and therefore need the moves. I am using the Ninjatrader platform which I have used for years.

I have attached my chart to show my setup. My trading is 100% mechanical. Today I am up $220 trading one contract for 3 hours.

Wish me luck.

Ty

6th November 2018 - Trade 1

Took my first trade for the day. My entry was my usual mechanical entry. It just missed my target so I closed for a profit of $345.00. Took the same trade on my live account.

6th November 2018 - Trade 2

Second trade for the day. Just missed my target due to a comfort break ($100 pee). Manage to get out for $100 profit. It then went on to hit my target 2 minutes later (the story of our lives..lol) The good news is that my strategy works a treat, and I trade on such small time frames trade entries appear quite frequently. I think I will call it a day as 8pm to 10pm AEST is normally quiet.

Profit for the day. $445.00

Thanks,

Ty

6th November 2018 - Trade 4+5

I gave up for the night and started looking for a new broker. I am currently with IB Brokers and Ampfutures. I love them both however AMP does not link in with Ninjatrader. While I was waiting I manage to grab another 4 ticks or $20 dollars in profit. One scratch trader and one profit.

Profit for the day $430

I am done and will continue tomorrow.

7th November 2018 - Trade 1

I took a short on the YM at 25827 and my stop is now at BE +1. It will be my only trade for tonight as I have a big day tomorrow. I will wake up at 5am to check on the trade and if I have not been stopped I will be closing out. My target is 25619 and I realize that we will need a big push down to get those numbers. I have immediate support at 25810 which it is testing now.

Safe trading,

Ty

Thanks for that. What I meant is the volume. As the volume dies out I find that technical analysis becomes more difficult on lower time frames and I seem to get lots of consolidation periods. When I do burn the midnight oil and trade the US session I find that when I get an entry the chart is clean thus my indicators print with too many false signals. I have tried the NKD and Nifty50 but seem to remain loyal to the YM.

7th November 2018 - Trade 1 (UPDATE)


I ended up chickening out and closing for $40 (chicken feed..lol). Luckily I did or I would have been stopped.
