What would it be like for you to see these opportunities as they unfold? What would it be like for you to clearly see the trade set ups … to know where to enter … and to know where to take profit? Where would your confidence be if you know in advance that the trend was about to change – that you could really read this in your charts? How would you feel if you could do this with any market on any time frame?Well, all of this is very possible.
Learn To Understand Market Structure – The Key to Trading
Most traders start with indicators or specialty software that can be helpful, but frustratingly confusing as well. A trade setup works wonderfully one day. Then, just a few days later the exact same setup fails. Why? Because the market structure on the first trade was conducive to that trade; on the second exact same setup, it wasn’t.
You can take any trade setup and dramatically improve it with a sound understanding of market structure. We will show you how to read market structure so that you can anticipate ahead of time what the market is likely to do next.
The Professional’s Winning Edge
Most professional traders don’t rely on indicators for their trading edge. Their big advantage is that they know how to read price bars and volume. This is a significant advantage. Combined with an understanding of market structure, the ability to read the market bar-by-bar is the quintessential professional’s edge. It is what makes them professional. They are not relying on the standard indicators everyone else is using – if they did, they would be in the same boat that 85-90% of all traders are in: a sinking ship of failure. Instead, they have developed the ability to see buying and selling in the markets they trade and whether demand (buying) or supply (selling) is dominant and in control. Combined with an understanding of market structure and exactly where to take trades, the pro trader has a great advantage in trading the markets. You can have this same advantage with an understanding of how to read the market by its own actions and some good, old fashioned hard work.

“This was a delightful assignment (from Chart Reading Mastery course) and I have had a wonderful trading day on the EURUSD spot fx doing the assignment while live trading. This is some of the coolest and most encouraging I have ever done. Today I have got the feeling of how powerful your work actually is. With very little stress! I have two times been trying to get into a sell position for a larger down move, but it came up again for break even on both. I don’t mind, because it has given me a great experience with what we learned in previous session. The homework illustration with the trendlines was the actual work behind the first sell position, but as first time and a bit baffled by seeing the result with the work I hesitated on this first one. So the illustrated sell level was not the actual level. The other one went like that. After that I stopped, but see two other opportunities which came later. I did not do the buy’s, because of the recent larger down move from 1.3855.” Lars from Canada
“Your chart reading mastery course is the BEST trading course I ever took and I’ve done quite a few. Each aspect was thoroughly explained, thoroughly presented in charts and notes. It contained things (many) that I’ve never seen presented anywhere else that help me so much in understanding where supply and demand really are. Great course.” Larry Walter, Trader with 10 years of trading experience, Castle Rock, CO.

About the Author
Dr. Gary Dayton stands apart as a trading psychologist in his use of the Mindfulness-Acceptance-Commitment (MAC) approach to peak performance, a model of human behavior based on cutting-edge psychological research. In his thought-leader article, Fear Not: A Mindful Perspective for Traders published in Stocks, Futures, and Options Magazine (December, 2009), Dr. Dayton introduced traders to the practice of mindfulness to help them overcome fear and other unwanted trading emotions and explained how mindfulness can help traders develop the concentration and focus needed to trade successfully. Dr. Dayton published another article in the June 2010 issue of SFO Magazine, Take Control of Your Trading: Focus on High-Value Actions, where he shows traders how to stay focused on critical trading actions rather than succumb to ‘emotional hijackings’ while trading.
After learning trading strategies, Dr. Dayton found that the number one challenge for traders is the struggle with the mental and emotional side of trading. Nearly every trader tries to control his or her emotions, but this is usually ineffective and often becomes problematic for the trader. The struggle with unwanted emotions and the erratic trading actions that result may be a primary reason why 90% of all aspiring traders fail. Dr. Dayton uses the MAC model to help traders focus on what matters most for his/her trading and avoid engaging in distracting emotional and mental chatter.
Through seminars, workshops, and coaching, Dr. Dayton, and his company Peak Psychology Inc., help traders overcome the psychological pitfalls unique to trading, while at the same time helping traders develop the optimal mindset needed to be successful. He focuses on both correcting problems as well as teaching specific proficiencies required to build mastery in trading. Dr. Dayton applies state-of-the-science knowledge in mindfulness-acceptance, cognitive-behavioral, and sport psychologies, along with research findings from behavioral finance, to help individuals systematically develop peak performance skills and abilities. His ultimate goal with each individual is to instill the ability to become one’s own peak performance coach.
A trader himself, Dr. Dayton understands what goes through a trader’s mind and can effectively communicate with them. He integrates his knowledge of advanced psychology with trading to make it easier for the trader to understand. His approach to trading psychology is focused on helping the trader build the metal skills necessary to trade successfully. In his work, Dr. Dayton guides the trader through the elements of deep or deliberate practice, a model of elite performance based on 35 years of research in individual performance.
An active trader since 1999, Dr. Dayton has traded equities, commodity futures, the financial index e-mini futures, and options, e-mini S&P futures markets, applying Wyckoff method of market analysis. He is an expert in Wyckoff analysis and the lost art of chart reading, in which the technical aspects of the market are read with price bars and volume.
A featured speaker in workshops and seminars, Dr. Dayton helps traders learn the mental and emotional side of trading through enjoyable and enlightening hands-on exercises.
