Global Futures - Tis the Season - Exploring Seasonality with Don Dawson

Start the Year With a Plan for Futures

Don Dawson, 25 year futures trader, will provide an overview of the opportunities in global futures and provide insights related to seasonality in various futures contracts



Don Dawson has been trading the futures markets since 1987. His perseverance through the ups and downs of trading, openness to experience of others, balanced tolerance for risk, and patience to wait for his setups are a few of his strengths as a trader.

He actively trades his personal account on a regular basis when not instructing for Online Trading Academy. His teaching method has been referred to as "down to earth". He understands the student's need for a structured environment in the early stages of their trading education. As an Instructor, he uses humor to convey information in an accessible way.

He is excited about sharing his passion for trading with others. A quote he likes is "A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle." He believes that the best teacher is a student – always in learning mode and wanting to learn more by teaching. He looks forward to working with each of you in one of his classes
