Welcome to Big Mike's Trading Forum.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

BMT is fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Here is the link to the original Market Profile Handbook from CBOT, which can be downloaded for free.

Edit: The link is broken, cannot find it anymore, so I loaded it up as a PDF.

Otherwise you should have a look at the classics

J. Peter Steidlmayer

- Steidlmayer on Markets - Trading with Market Profile

James F .Dalton

- Mind over Markets

- Markets in Profile

The market profile handbook is extra dry stuff, I would rather start with the books of James Dalton, then practice with GOMI's ladder.

You can also watch the two Market Profile webinars on this site, and sign up for the third which will be in July.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
