To prime yourself for trading success, you will first have to let go of many price-based indicators and, more importantly, your desire for an immediate profitable outcome. If you have had difficulty being consistently profitable, you may have to give up what you already believe in order to move forward. Productive trading begins with a solid foundational base of both market understanding and emotional understanding. The bedrock of our teachings at Jim Dalton Trading is to help traders learn to create a solid foundational base for their trading and, eventually, learn to effortlessly spot opportune trade opportunities. To help traders on their path to trading success, we are offering our educational course Market Profile Primer: A Concentrated Live Course with Jim.
