Pro Suite has been built around Jim Dalton teaching and it is highly recommended to learn Jim’s methodology to use PRO Suite in the most efficient way.


James F. Dalton has been involved in the stock and futures markets for more than 40 years. He 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.

At Paine Webber – which merged into UBS Financial Services – Jim managed an institutional trading desk, then served as Manager, Hedge Fund Research, and finally became Director of Research for Managed Accounts. His experience is fully realized in two books: Mind over Markets: Power Trading with Market Generated Information Updated Edition (2013) and Markets in Profile: Profiting from the Auction Process (2007).




Currently a full-time trader, Jim advises two hedge funds and several trading firms. Jim is a discretionary trader and long-time proponent of employing the Market Profile® to facilitate trading. The ways in which the behavior of markets and traders affects each other serves as a common thread through Jim’s writing, trading, and mentoring. 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.
