MES Capital Chat room

MES Capital asked me to head their Funded Trader text-only Chat room. That was an honor.

I started today. It was pretty painless since everyone was quite professional.

And we had great discussions today with some very experienced traders.

So go pass a OneUp evaluation and then come hang out with us!

Hello... since few days ago i was looking for more information about OneUpT or TST. I want to try the evaluation but first i want to know what is going to be the deal with the micro futures at 6 of may. If is going to be with lack of volatility, high comissions or even spreads... Im going to do the evaluation but i dont know what can be better... The TST or OneUp.

These past days of research... im looking forward to OneUp. But in your opinion, why u chose OneUp than TST?

Asking about the News Events, in the Funded Account u cant trade it (anyway i always close my trades before the news) but close it 1 minute before the news and after what time u can still trading again?

Thank you for ur information and for sure.. im going to follow ur thread.

The response to the micro futures will be interesting. And I don't know if they will be offered by One/Up and MES Capital. The spread and commissions might make them suitable only for swing trading (which is not a bad thing at all when you have a small account).

I tried TST several years ago and thought they were great. But at that time my style of inverted risk:reward with 95% winners did not sit well with them. They let me trade that way after I got clearance. I never completed a combine successfully after several attempts.

Then MES came to the scene, and I tried their combine for free before they joined up with OneUp. I did not succeed.

Once MES they teamed up with OneUp, I naturally wanted to try them because of my experience MES, and not knowing if TST still had the same rules.

I got funded with MES fairly quickly after trying the evaluation with OneUp. But I didn't keep all the rules. It was either trading through the news or hitting the max draw down. I am now on my 4th live account. I am doing all I can to make sure I stay alive this time.

Which is the better company? I really don't know. TST has been around longer, and so has worked out many of the bugs, but the people at OneUp and MES have been great. And as you saw, I just got paid my first $1000, so they are very real. And that payment came the very same day I asked for it!

There are not too many news releases you have to be flat for, but you better pay attention to the calendar. You have to be flat for 2 whole minutes. 1 before to 1 after.

I don't think you can go wrong with OneUp. They seem to give you more flexibility in terms of how you trade. But maybe TST has changed things since I tried them several years ago.

Success to you.

If Micro Futures is going to be similar of YM or ES (Instruments that i trade..) that is a good deal... If in there they add a high comission or spread (like Forex or CFD.... the same of those kind of brokers..) that is going to be a real shame... But... if in there are only the Comission like ES or YM only 1/10 of the value like they said... That is going to be awesome... and more for those who like to trade with a few contracts for do the partial trade management. Is only the reason that i want to wait to micro futures for see what is going to be the deal with them... If not im going to try with OneUp or TST.

Thank you for ur answer and yes... is awesome to see that picture that they already send u the money. BTW, with people from other countries.. is the same transfer? Obviously i think only with a days of difference for the deposit to be in the bank.

I am not sure about international wires. But there are many international traders with OneUp/MES, so they must have figured it all out!

Nice, good for you.

Daytrading margin is only 40$
Its cheaper / better to open you own account.

Congrats, sounds like fun!

Are you finding the rules easy to abide by?

It also looks like I'd be able to use any of the listed platforms for free during the evaluation, which is pretty tempting!

Hope you continue to trade well!

The rules are easy yes, as long as you keep your eye on the calendar. This week has only one relevant news release, but most have a few. It's easy to be flat by 4:15 ET, and it's easy to keep the draw down in check and not trade more contract than I should.

Thanks for the encouragement. Some days are definitely harder to trade than others. I did about $200 net today, but Mon, Tues, I had small losses.
