How did he find out about Oneup Trader?
Luis mentions that he found OneUp Trader after the unsuccessful experience he had with another funding company. He said that he did research in a trading community and was recommended to try OneUp Trader.
What makes OneUp Trader Different?
For Luis, the rules of the other company and the OneUp Trader were the same. However, the previous funding company he tried did not have a great customer service or phone number or platform to communicate. They only have an email address for sending inquiries or requesting technical support, whereas OneUp Trader has a community, a page, a blog, and phone numbers to contact them for technical support issues or account needs. So, comparing the other company with OneUp Trader, Luis thinks that OneUp Trader is much better than any other competitor out there. OneUp, he said, provides a lot more services for the same price than other funding companies.
What trading process does he follow during the day?
Luis says that his trading process is very simple. He likes to listen to the news just to get the market sentiment in the morning. After that, he opens his minute and 5 minutes charts along with daily and weekly charts.
His trading experience
In the beginning, it was exciting and full of emotions for him. He had to slow down and get back into the basic rules of trading. According to Luis, to trade successfully, you cannot trade based on emotions but based on technical analysis. He says that it was one of the setbacks he had when he started after going back to the basics and learning the rules of trade by reading the blogs on the OneUp Trader’s website.
Luis says OneUp Trader is a community that supports and helps each other. They don’t only provide trading strategies, but also necessary tools for success. In the beginning, when he started with OneUp, he was very excited. However, he also felt powerfully emotional as he had to step back, rethink his trading process and go back to the basics. According to him, the blogs on the OneUp Trader site are really helpful. You don’t have to use that, he says, but he referred to consult OneUp’s blogs in case he needs help.
Another factor he thinks was wonderful about the OneUp community is that somebody can ask questions in the community. Also, in the community, somebody with more experience can guide those who have less experience.
About account analytics and how it helped him to become a better trader?
He says that the other company he worked with offers an accounting analytics feature but it was not synchronized, whereas the OneUp analytics platform helps traders to stay on track. It helps them to figure out what they are doing wrong and in detail, it explains what trades you got wrong and tells you when to stay in each trade. It prevents you from making the same mistakes again and again, especially on the rules of trades. The account analytics enabled him to see a pattern in his trades, and he said looking at the account analytics was a tremendous help for him.
Excitedly, Luis declared, OneUp account analytics is the best. It helps traders to stay on track with their goals. For Luis, the account analytics assisted him to attain his goal, which was to pass the evaluation process. It helped him to see where he is lagging, what he needed to do more, and where he ought to stay away from more. For Luis, OneUp’s account analytics is one of the greatest tools.

In his practical scenario, he leveraged the account analytics to identify his losing trades and what he was doing wrong. He discovered through the account analytics that every time he spent a certain amount of time in a specific position, in a specific pattern or setup that he had, he was losing his trades. He equally discovered through the analytics that he was losing every time on that specific strategy he was using and he was holding up a little too long. Account analytics helped him to know his weakness in setting losing trades. Therefore, as soon as he starts to lose out on a trade, he cuts it to minimize his loss and avoid bigger losses.
OneUp sign up process
He says that the OneUp sign up process was the simplest thing and that it was even easier than signing up for a social media account or email account. Yes, it takes you little extra steps just as any other financial platform like opening a bank account would do, but overall it is a simple user-friendly process that requires you to provide details like your email, your address and your method of payment. It is just similar to the simple information you will provide when opening an account, purchasing something from Amazon or from an online eCommerce site. Luis gave OneUp Trader a rating of 10 out of 10 because of its simple sign up and user-friendly process. You can listen to him directly by clicking on this link. After signing up, he was given specific keys and steps to set up his account with the trading platform he was using.
He mentioned that after he passed his test, he contacted the OneUp Trader to say that he has reached his goal and he could remember receiving an email from OneUp Trader that asked him to get ready to trade which included his trading contract.
He didn’t see any part of the rules as difficult. For him, the OneUp trading rule is just a simple thing. You only need to just follow the rules and not break them. The account analytics will help you to follow the rules. He mentioned that the rules were listed before he opened an account and that it’s everywhere in the OneUp Trader’s system and it helped him to stay on track. Account analytics also helped him to see the consistency of his trades and he says seeing the overall consistency helps you to stay on track. As far as the rules are concerned, he didn’t find any problem with it. The only thing he thinks a trader needs to do is just follow the rules.
The most important thing about the rules is that if you follow them, you are setting yourself up for success and not following them can get you fired just like the rules you obtain anywhere. He says that rules and commitment are the same for both traders that are going through the evaluation process and funded traders. There is no difference in the rules. They are the same and nothing changes, just the same rules, and commitment from OneUP Trader. The rules are there for a reason, to protect you from losing and to ensure you succeed.
His experience with the OneUp customers support team
His encounter with the customer service team was great. Even though he couldn’t get hold of anyone, he would always get a phone call back from a member of the team or a follow-up email. When asked whether or not his concerns or issues were resolved, he said he loved it from day one. He says, the support team only asks for basic information to identify you and verify you as a OneUp Trader account user. Even when the phone lines are busy, they don’t send you to voicemail, but your call is registered so that somebody will call you back as soon as the line becomes free.
He was very excited that even though he didn’t provide his phone number, someone contacted him later on and said, “I see you contacted us, how can we help you?” One of the greatest pluses of OneUp Trader is that someone is always there to answer your queries and help you resolve any technical or trading issues you may have and if no one is available at the time you called, someone will contact you later.
Compared to the funding company he had worked with in the past which only has an email address for customer service, he says, OneUp Trader has a phone number and if you cannot get hold of anyone, they will call you back.
His trading style
He trades his funded account the same way he traded during the evaluation process. He didn’t think that it was necessary to change his trading strategy with the live account.
He has only one strategy and that is what he applies every day and if he does not see the trade setup he is looking for, he does not get in. He would not be changing the process with his live account. With his live account, he equally follows the same step and risk he followed in his test account.
What OneUp Trader helped him with
One thing he likes about OneUp Trader if he has to mention only one thing, is the customer service, the support, the help, and the coaching he received. The coaching and the help he received helped him and trained him to focus on his strategies. So, he doesn’t have to worry about his account, about IT issues, account issues, or technical difficulties because the OneUp team is always there anytime he calls, and if he calls and didn’t get anyone, he was sure that someone was going to get back to him within 15 minutes.
Luis thinks the ability to speak with a live person when he is having technical issues is phenomenal. According to him, OneUp Trader provides a lot of tools and rules for success and following the rules, using the tools, and leveraging the tools will guarantee success for the trader.
However, he says, success depends on every person but OneUp has provided the tools. He thinks that the main reason OneUp Trader is the best compared to other funding companies is that you have a phone number and email to leverage on if you need to help plus a website where you can get important trading information and rules.
