Funded Trader Yose Travels from Dominican Republic to Chicago to Talk Shop


Some of you may know Yose. He’s one of our favorite success stories here at Topstep. Since getting funded, he has become a formidable futures trader, quit his day job, and secured major outside capital to back his personal account. We’re thrilled to have been part of his journey, and lucky to have had him in the Topstep Studio this week, all the way from the Dominican Republic. Traders of all levels can learn a lot from his insights, so we certainly hope you check out this very special episode of the Topstep Weekly Preview. Enjoy!


In this video, Yose and Topstep Performance Coach Dan Hodgman initially discuss Wednesday’s Fed announcement (SPOILERS: they cut rates by 0.25%, which the markets didn’t like—until they did… and then didn’t again). But more importantly they dive into Yose’s keys to success and explore the psychology of trading big news events.


You can learn more about Yose and his trading style by checking out this interview we did with him back in April. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye on this post-Fed, post-tariff fallout, stay true to your risk parameters, and trade smart.
