Don 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.

Don obtained his series 3 license in 1990. Soon afterwards he registered as a Commodity Trading Advisor with the National Futures Association and formed his company Majestic Futures. He has been a guest speaker on Technical Analysis at Johns Hopkins University and a guest speaker on the Business of Trading Radio Show in Washington, DC.

He continues to actively trade his personal account on a daily basis when not teaching 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. 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 is now looking for a balance in life between trading and teaching others what he has learned from his many years of trading. He acknowledges 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. He is also writing articles for Online Trading Academy's free newsletter "Lessons From the Pros" and hopes students find this a valuable resource.
What students are saying about Don Dawson:
