My courses are a result of my 11 year-strong trading career for London and Chicago prop firms.

I am frequently quoted in various publications such as Business News Daily and Forbes as an expert on trading.

Few years ago I decided to start my own company and stop trading for others.

I eventually partnered my new firm Market Stalkers with Blahtech.

Blahtech is a London-based IT firm comprised of a team of software engineers from bulge bracket investment banks (Barclays Capital, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch).

Few years ago Blahtech decided they want to move away from corporations and into a much more relaxed start-up culture.

This collaboration allows me to test my strategies algorithmically.

If you're struggling to make scalping work, this course can help you find your edge as an intraday trader.

If you've never come across market profile before, the content in this course is rather eye-opening.

Market profile not technical analysis. A more correct terminology would be 'Market Mechanics Methodology'.

Learning to use Market Profile and TPOs teaches you how to properly understand and interpret intraday institutional order flow.

When coupled with pure price action patterns and supply/demand on larger timeframes, it is one of the clearest and most robust straightforward ways to confidently read day-to-day market sentiment.

I am the first trader to create a fully systematic approach using these concepts together systematically.

The entire approach of my method and style of trading is explained step by step in my comprehensive, detailed Professional Development Program on the main Market Stalkers website (search Market Stalkers on google).

There is a very good reason why Market Profile remains the most commonly used tool of professional prop traders world wide.

This is a no-nonsense crash course in using Market Profile with a clear and concise approach. I focus on market profile aspects that are relevant for todays markets.

No equations or complicated calculus. No wallpapering you with any and every profile technique under the sun.

Straight to the point - improve your understanding of the relationship between TPOs and Value Areas.

Find out which day types and setups have the highest odds of working out. Suitable for any liquid products including commodities (crude oil, gold, silver), forex markets, equity indices and individual stocks.

Learn once and for all how to use professional analysis tools of volume and price. Raise confidence in your setups. Eliminate fear and doubt.

To move forward with your trading skills, enroll in the course today.

See you on the inside!

Trading is a performance discipline so at some point, you must learn the skill through realtime trading and forward-testing of any strategy/trading idea. My aim with this section is to show you my thinking process and decision making while the trade is in, based on new information coming into the market as the trade develops over the course of the trading day.

This is a short intraday trade in WTI crude oil based on the following set of conditions:

  • Value Area Open Scenario: Inside Value

  • Rejection of Value Area: Yes, to the downside via 30 min candlestick

  • Initial Balance extension: Yes, to the downside, non aggressive

  • Stop loss size used: 33 ticks

The video has a time lapse of the 'boring parts' - rather than cutting bits and pieces of the trade I record the entire duration of the trade so that you can see how price moved during the active position. Throughout the video I take the speed back to realtime to talk you through what is happening.

WTI Crude Oil short trade - Nymex open scenario: Inside Value Area and Rejection

Intraday live trade in gold based on another profile setup. Comex opened above the value area, then came back to test the value edge. The trade was taken from the rejection of value area high via a morning star candle pattern on a 5 min chart.
