Our mission at Jim Dalton Trading is to help you gain a competitive edge by honing your instinct for what drives markets and competitors, and to turn that instinct into practical, daily understanding you can really use!
We believe that the dynamic, immersive learning environment we create for our trading students is truly transformative.
We believe that true trading alchemy takes place when market understanding and self-understanding unite. Like any craft worth learning, success is not a destination but a continual dynamic process. And nowhere is that more true than with trading where it is easy — and dangerous — to measure oneself by daily gains and losses.
We believe that understanding trading as a practice and a craft that can be honed will profoundly change your learning. It starts with you. It’s not overnight. It takes focus, commitment and the willingness to adopt a learner’s mindset and put aside what you think you know. And once you get out of your own way and accept that there is often nothing rational about how traders think or act, you will be able to use that knowledge to your advantage
Most importantly, we believe that the trading wizard behind the curtain is really YOU! And we’re here to guide you on your path to discovering that for yourself and transforming your trading!
