My name is Matt Davio (@MissTrade). I have traded full-time for 20+ years. I’m a former fund manager now turned private investor. It’s been my pleasure to work with such industry names as Peak 6 and Parallax. Over the years, I have learned that a trader needs to keep it simple (KISS). It’s my goal to pass this knowledge and insight on to you.
I utilize market trend trading and basic trend line analysis. More importantly, I employ the Market Profile which allows me to see the market “in the now.” Time, price, and trend dictate where my opportunities are found and what defines my risk. I believe time is the most important metric. Time trumps price. Price alone doesn’t matter. Time at that price is significant. Trend doesn’t matter. How long have we been in a trend the more relevant it is.
I trade the best setups, so my life is not devoted to sitting in front of the screen. I prefer to use my time listening to music, reading, golfing, playing squash, coaching and spending time with my wife and 4 kids.
My name is Josh Schuler (@JoshSchuler) and for the past 8 years I have been trading for myself. I was a self taught trader who picked up lots of bad habits. I was successful, but didn’t have the confidence to really pick my own entries or exits, so my success was muted. I began trading with Matt several years ago and completely turned everything around. Now, as part of the Market Profile Trading Academy, I am working to shorten the learning curve for traders.
I have a number of go-to high probability set-ups that I go to over and over, and it allows me to focus on my family and other business interests while consistently taking money out of the market.
We provide workshops and mentorships:
With trading, there is great opportunity, but it is not for everyone. Trading is hard. It requires discipline, focus, and determination. There is plenty of noise in the world regarding trading. Given the conditions surrounding trading, one of the best decisions you can make is to find good mentors and partnerships. Every successful professional athlete has a coach. We encourage you to be in the best mental and physical state. We work together on a plan to develop your mental training with ideas about how to be in the best state to be involved in the game of trading. We will work on this when we work together.
Our goal is to provide the market with independent and competent market participants. We believe that competent market participants make for better and fairer markets. We work hard to help our students develop the competence to navigate markets independently, whether they go on to trade part-time, full-time, for a prop firm, to lead their own fund, or as a new challenge after a previous successful career.
