Become A Trading Master


We certainly hope so! But if you came to J Dalton Trading looking for overnight success, you might have better luck consulting the neighborhood psychic. (Nothing against neighborhood psychics, of course!)

The best place to start is by first recognizing that no one has the answers for you. Successful trading is a blend of both your market understanding and self-understanding.


Jim Dalton has made trading and studying the markets his life’s work for over 40 years. He is the author of two seminal books on trading, Mind over Markets: Power Trading with Market Generated Information Updated Edition (2013) and Markets in Profile: Profiting from the Auction Process (2007).

Jim has been a member of the Chicago Board of Trade as well as a member of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, and Senior Executive Vice President of the CBOE during its formative years. He is a discretionary trader and long-time proponent of employing the Market Profile® to facilitate trading.

He has been a sought-after speaker and educator throughout his career, and in 2010 he decided to formally channel his insights into creating a curriculum for Market Profile Trading. Jim, along with his J Dalton Trading co-founder and trading partner, Julia Stuart has designed a sophisticated, sought-after trading program to reach traders at all levels of mastery.

He believes that ultimately self understanding is as important as market understanding. Only when the two are equally well comprehended can the whole trader emerge and compete with greater odds of success.
