About Alexander Trading
Alexander Trading was founded in 2003. I am a trading educator specializing in a specific methodology based entirely on Auction Market Principles. I teach traders a market worldview of how markets work through the lens of Auction Market Principles.
I offer training courses in the form of a series of workshops that are accessible online.
Resources include a monthly membership for futures/commodity traders. The membership includes a Live Trade Room, daily (pre-market and post market reports) on market opportunities and video and text transcripts of all Live Trade Room Activity. The membership also includes regular Trade Lessons and Educational Webinars. They include website accessible resources that support and are consistent with our training and membership.
Why is Alexander Trading Relevant?
For starters, unlike 90+% of the stuff traders attempt to use it actually works. We work with the trader to prove it works. We provide the tools and challenge (encourage) each trader to disprove our work while developing their own trading model using Auction Market concepts.
We are providing the trader with a base methodology and the detail of the logic behind it. We provide the trader with multiple resources to enhance their knowledge and a template to develop a Trade Plan using the methodology that fits their experience level, goals and aptitude. We provide constant support through the resources through our membership. We are very consistent with our approach and our resources are congruent across the board.
What Separates Alexander Trading from the Rest?
1) Experience: I, Tom Alexander, have been trading in front of a screen for 35 years. I don’t think it is possible to have more screen based trading experience because when I began trading the internet was not in the public domain and you could really only have the resources to trade from a screen unless you were a broker or institutional trader.
At present I remain an active trader, managing family accounts and as a co-partner in a registered hedge fund. I trade across the asset spectrum including futures, commodities, stocks, ETFs and options.
I have worked as a broker (stocks and commodities/futures). I have owned my own futures/commodities brokerage firm (institutional). I have been an institutional trader as well as private trader for both myself and others.
My trading education business is in its sixteenth year. I have clients that have been with me the entire time. That is quite unusual in the Trading Education space. I have studied not only trading, but how to most effectively teach others how to trade.
I am the author of “Practical Trading Applications of Market Profile”, first published in 2008. It has been shipped and read all over the world. I am also the author of, “Trading Without Crutches: Trading Stocks and ETFs using the Market Profile Graph and Auction Market Principles”.
2) Robustness of our Methodology: We teach a methodology that is based in sound logic and that is consistent and objective. It is a methodology to which rigor can be applied – one can test their specific application of the methodology and prove it works, or not. It can be used to trade all assets in all time frames.
This is a methodology that cannot be “outgrown”; no matter how sophisticated or experienced the trader, there is deep and broad value in understanding the Auction Market Development Process all markets follow.
3) Depth and Breadth of Our Resources: We provide an ever expanding library of resources to our clients that are consistent and supportive. We are not offering a smorgasbord of every technical approach on the market; we are “tight” and consistent.
4) We Promote Trading Realistically: We do not tell traders they are going to get rich quick. We promote trading as a worthy endeavor, whether professional or as a serious trader, that must be approached as other similar professions. It takes hard work, study and practice to reach one’s potential as a trader. That potential varies from trader to trader.
