No, unfortunately they are not. Also in the funded account the trades do not actually go to the market. A lot of people comment on this, but OneUpt try to avoid stating it explicitly, but if you read their answer to some specific question you will see that they mention this "detail".
Probably they are legit and they only "hedge" the big positions that are not automatically hedged by an opposite position of other traders, like CFD brokers do.
Anyway, personally I don't like CFD and if I trade futures I want to se my order printed on the ladder.

as long as I'm not risking my own capital, I don't really care whether or not my orders show up on the ladder.

but it'll be interesting to find out I guess. I just got funded and once I'm up and running I'll wait for a slow market when the volumes are thin and place my max allowed size on the extreme side of the ladder, and see whether or not it shows up.

and also I've got my own datafeed from sierrachart, so if the broker does any monkey business with the price I'll know for sure.

if I discover anything I'll post it on my oneuptrader journal here :

Hi Sayounara can you plesse update how it's going with the funded account? Did you blow up? If so how long did it take?

If you did not blow up, could you verify if orders are real? Do they actually get transmitted to the market?
