I have been studying Market Profile for a while, have read both of Dalton's book's & studied his Field of Vision presentation. All of which I can tell you have advanced my understanding of this form of market analysis. I agree with SpyderTrader & mfbreakout's perspective. I have not yet read cbot manual, Don Jones's work & Steidlmayer's most recent book. All of those resources will advance your understanding of the concept. Personally would not be able to justify the price for Keppler's material, but everyone's willingness to pay & expectation's varies person to person. Regardless, whatever education route you chose, internalization of the concepts will take time, practice, patience & persistence. From that point you may have a statistically quantifiable edge you can work with. Best of luck, Enjoy the process.
-Hopefully this helps you figure out what's best for you
i have read his book and all the others. Did not that it was worth a damn. i have spent a lot of time on market profile...4 months JP room 6 months TAS 2 yeas with Jim Dalton . i have not taken his course but i would say it is as good as any .he was a educator that partnered wit the CQG platform. market profile is not quick and easy.. it is more about reading the market state or condition.. very necessary to day trade. i would not spend any time on volume foot print charts ,,,they are lagging...if you want to work on order flow use book map .
