Overview

Praise for MARKETS in PROFILE

"Good books teach, but the best books enlighten. Markets in Profile is much more than a lucid explanation of the Market Profile and its application; it is an enlightening perspective on auction markets and the principles underlying all trading, regardless of time frame. Clearly written with many practical examples, Markets in Profile moves seamlessly from trading how-to's to trading psychology and back again, emphasizing the trader's dual challenge of understanding markets and understanding self. In so doing, authors Dalton, Dalton, and Jones have produced a worthy successor to their classic Mind over Markets."
—Brett N. Steenbarger, PhD, author of The Psychology of Trading and Enhancing Trader Performance

"Markets in Profile is a brilliant, insightful work that should be required reading for any trader. Dalton, Dalton, and Jones will transform your trading technique through their unique knowledge of the markets and understanding of trading psychology."
—Martin Sheridan, commodities trader, NYMEX member

"This book provides a fresh approach to behavioral finance—ideas that I have used to great benefit."
—Gregory A. Ehret, Senior Managing Director, State Street Global Advisors

"Few people understand the dynamics of the auction process as well as Jim Dalton. Market Profile offers a graphic representation of this process and Markets in Profile illustrates Jim's mastery of it."
—Steve Dickey, Vice President of Market Data Products, Chicago Board of Trade

"Market data speak volumes and Jim Dalton has deciphered the code. In Markets in Profile, Jim shares his techniques of profitable trading in a most readable and entertaining format. Serious traders, both professional and amateur, should benefit from the application of Jim's volumetric approach to reading what investors are telling us through their collective buy-sell transactions."
—Walter Sall, professional investor
