What Subscribers Say About WindoTraderBLUE
"I discovered WindoTraderBLUE through Peter over at Shadow Trader. Since subscribing to the WindoTrader it has completely transformed my trading in a positive way. I started trading options in September of 2018. My account was hit and miss. Sometimes I would make money and sometimes I wouldn't. However, since WindoTraderBLUE I have been more consistent with my trades. I don't know if this is important, but I am up over 80% on my account since the beginning of the year and most of the returns came at the time I started with WindoTraderBLUE. I just upgraded to the pro version because I was so happy with the lite version and if I could get so much from the lite version I am so excited to learn what I can get out of the pro version and how it can improve my trading."
"The support I get from the WindoTrader team is amazing! Terry and Maril are amazing. They get back to me in a timely manner. Trading is a business for me and WindoTrader is a tool that is at the core of my business. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about the trading business. Thank you WindoTrader."

"Market Profile chart provides insight and nuances that allow me to assess the probabilities of the 3 short-term scenarios, including intraday and swing trades. After learning from Jim Dalton about Market Profile 5 years ago and using WindoTraderBLUE for 4+ years, I can say that I have been a much more astute and rational trader. WindoTrader has provided the robustness and reliability that a daily trader demands of a trading software and service."
"Its core charting functions have fulfilled my needs and goals perfectly. And I love the fact that I can load my daily profile setup instantly before the market opens. All my marks and comments are tracked to remind me of the past market profile nuances that most of the times play out their expected courses. In short, market profile and WindoTrader has been indispensable for my daily assessment of the futures and market."

"How to sum up WindoTraderBLUE? Priceless. It's a strong word, but having every analysis needed for day trading the ES on one screen is priceless. Before WindoTraderBLUE I was a professional trader using eight 24 inch monitors for my analysis and trading. After switching to Blue I went down to three 27 inch monitors and only trade most of the time. What I found was I had increased clarity and thinking due to the soundness of mind created from the uncluttering of my charts. To sum it up a messy desk equates to messy thinking and the same goes with charts. Terry taught me to drill down 20% of the whole and keep drilling down until you get to the true purpose. And by doing so I went from 8 monitors to 1, and never looked back."
"The above is just regarding charts. The customer service you receive at WindoTraderBLUE is the best in the business. Are you charts down? Send an email and you will get a quick response to fix the issues. Need training? They have you covered. Want custom templates? They will help you create them."
"The bottom line is if you are a Market Profile Theorist WindoTraderBLUE is the best in the business through performance, reliability, customer service and efficiency of information. You cannot go wrong. Thank you Terry, Maril and Eric for creating the software. You are much appreciated."

"Market Profile is a serious trader's best-kept secret -- and you have the tool to utilize it best. BLUE just continues to blow me away. Like a genie in a bottle "your wish is my command" -- there is nothing she won't do! (no sexual innuendo intended). When I first subscribed, I thought I was getting a state of the art software program. Little did I know that I was joining a family of like-minded traders that have created a culture that is absolutely contagious. While I personally have only scratched the surface of the resources available, what I have found is I am plugged into decades of shared life experiences, I have been exposed to concepts and practices such as "whole brain thinking", and "making decisions in my business and my personal life based on MY values". As a trader, you know how applicable life is to trading, so why not build all your strategies on the strongest foundation? I have found for the first time in my life I don't feel like I am on my own to figure everything out. As I continue to learn about Market Profile through education and experience, BLUE has allowed me to interpret the auction process and execute my trading strategies with great precision and confidence. I have a true edge over my competition. Just try to put a price tag on that....! WindoTraderBLUE is the hands down "King of the Jungle" when it comes to Market Profile software. I'm talking King Frickin Kong! Everything else pales in comparison."

"I’ll try to make this short, if I can. If you use Market Profile, or if you PLAN to use Market Profile as a trading tool, then you MUST consider using WindoTraderBLUE, or simply, “BLUE” as it is known by most users. This is a software created by folks that have a very deep appreciation and knowledge of the Market Profile graphic. Everything is here----cut the Profile into increments if you so wish, overlay the Profile into many months or years, create high and low volume nodes for ANY time period and create them for higher timeframes and then use them on lower timeframes, color co-ordinate areas of high and low volume on the Profile or use specific colors to designate extremes or specific reference areas, configure this software to “see inside the bar” in virtually any way that you want. In an instant, you can SEE where the market is facilitating trade or where the market is “distributing” (areas where the market is searching for sellers and/or buyers). It’s all here, you can set up Profiles within candlesticks, Profiles within OHLC bars, volume Profiles, TPO Profiles, you can break the Profile down to an increment of your preference and read volume stats to help determine direction OR non-direction. This tool will help if you want to view the market from a distance or if you choose to “go granular” and look at the market closely from multiple points of view. I have used Market Profile in my trading for MANY years, and I haven’t found software for the use of the Profile better than “BLUE”. And one more thing, if you need help/support, it is there. These are not folks that want you to subscribe and then, when you need help, you’re on your own. Support is THERE, that in and of itself is quite different than most trading software. There are also webinars that are about using the software as well as webinars with successful traders that use the software. This is an easy choice if you are looking for software that can possibly help you gain an edge in the markets. If you like Market Profile the way that I do, then BLUE is the ONLY game in town"

"There is no substitute for WindoTraderBLUE for anyone using the market profile as their primary input. As a full-time equities day trader, I was always looking for a software platform that displays market profile and would present the data as I want to see it on the screen. I was first exposed to market profile in 1997 when I found Jim Dalton's book "Mind Over Markets." I knew then that this was the only way to "corral" the apparent randomness of the market. I have seen many attempts, but until I found WindoTraderBLUE, could never find a true display with everything that the Market Profile offers, and the ability to create my chart to show exactly what I want to see. Any time frame, any part of what the marketplace data provides, whether price, TPO or volume. Basically, WindoTraderBLUE gives me market profile data in any format I can imagine and what works for my trading time frame, trading technique and trading culture. Market Profile is not an indicator. It takes time, desire, and a love of trading to fully understand. It must consume you first before you can "understand" the incredibly valuable information it provides. As long as I have been exposed to market profile, WindoTraderBLUE has made it so much easier for me to interpret and every day it helps me make good trading decisions. In addition, WindoTrader not only provides great software, they also support the most important component of a successful trader -- the ability for us as traders to identify who we are and how we react to various trading scenarios...our personal trading culture. I had not previously pursued this component of trading thinking it not that important. Terry has shown me through his webinars and videos how important the "me" in trading is. The cost of the software for me is immaterial. The combination of the software with the bonus of trader mentality training ....is priceless!"

"I first learned of WindoTrader while reading a book on Market Profile. After browsing your website, I was impressed with the openness and honesty in the information that was being provided about your company and your software. It didn't take me long to decide to do business with you. And I am glad I did. As a former software developer, I am impressed with the functionality of WindoTraderBLUE, and how it presents market data in a very unique and informative way. Being a trader for the last 6 plus years, I'm constantly looking to gain knowledge of the financial markets. And I must say that over the few short months I've been involved with WindoTraderBLUE and the Market Profile, I've learned more about price action and how the auction process unfolds than with any other technical course, software product or company I've been involved with prior. It really gives me an in-depth view of how the market works. So, you can definitely count me in as an avid WindoTraderBLUE user and fan."

"As a cranky New Yorker, I don't often give compliments. However, I have to say that the people at WindoTrader have taken Market Profile charting to a whole new level with their new WindoTraderBLUE software. As an investor/trader for over 20 years, I've studied and used almost every method of technical analysis there is. I've also sampled most software available for trading the Market Profile. My preference for Market Profile lies in its visual approach to showing markets and market movement. And this is just what "BLUE" does brilliantly, using color, shape and inventive ideas to emphasize and reveal the most important aspects of the Market Profile that, as a trader, you need to be seeing. (With a mind-boggling number of chart permutations YOU can use it to look at the market YOUR way.) If you trade ANY markets using the Market Profile, "BLUE" will give you a clearer, crisper, vision and understanding of that market. It will show you and allow you to "see" more of the important data you need to be observing. Then the "BLUE" team of Terry, Marilyn, and Eric back it all up with webinars and one-on-one service not found anywhere else. Of course, there are kinks that still need to be worked out and like any new software there is a learning curve. But your patience and learning will be well rewarded, in my opinion. One of my beloved NY Yankees, Yogi Berra once said: "You can observe a lot by just watching." Thank you Terry and team for helping us "observe" a whole lot more of the Market Profile through your development of WindoTraderBLUE. Just call me a fan."

"During my learning process for becoming a trader, I discovered that I needed to find out what the market was doing inside those bars of a bar chart. I eventually found Market Profile and a new world of market information was at my fingertips. My next job was to find a MP trading platform. I tried many software programs that professed to offer a usable MP platform. None of them really satisfied my need for market knowledge in a format that suited my eye and thinking process. I saw WindoTraderBLUE in various webinars in which the presenter was a user of the program. My first attraction to WindoTraderBLUE was that it was easy on my eyes. And once I got used to the program, I learned that the program was also easy to use. I watched the tutorials and was ready to go! My trading screen is still evolving as I learn what information I require to see successful trades. This process is augmented by weekly webinars with one or all of your creative team. I am able to chat with team members and other users about how I see the market information, usually learning more about the unlimited potential of BLUE. Terry, I really appreciate your webinars about the many important parts of trading other than the price at that moment. You share with us so much of the knowledge you have gained during your years of learning to trade and then becoming good at it. I am a WindoTraderBLUE Charter subscriber, and I could not be happier or more proud to be associated with so many kind and caring fellow traders."

"More and more women are becoming interested in trading and trading technology. I am one of them and my experience with WindoTraderBLUE has been beyond positive -- what it offers is amazingly comprehensive, versatile AND visually exciting and fun to manipulate. I am a professional artist, so the opportunity to display market information with unlimited incorporation of color and design is stimulating and creative. Plain white and black bar charts will never be the same! Using all the available color options in setting up and customizing my screens enhances my interpretation of what is unfolding throughout the day in the market and becomes an almost intuitive way to record information. Just as we all instinctively intuit green to mean "up, good, go" and red to mean "down, bad, don't go" I am finding many other ways to internalize market information by color. Some are obvious such as background colors for various market screens, i.e., black for crude, green for bonds or dollar, red for Apple, etc. In setting up my key decision levels each day, I follow a color code I have now internalized -- setting my level colors white for the open, overnight hi and low's blue, POC's green, previous day open and close orange, etc. I save red for intermediate/long-term bracket levels or special alerts like 1300 and those numbers the market likes, etc. This helps me to assess at a glance the weight or importance of the next indicated level the market is aiming for or rejecting. On a more subtle level, in my daily set-up I include 30 minute candles as well as 15 minute candles. In order not to get bogged down in the 15 minute candles and lose the bigger picture of what the 30 minutes are doing, I leave the 30 minute candles set large and fat with the bright green and red of default setting. I then set my 15 minute candles much narrower in body and tails and mute their reds and greens to a duller value. This keeps the 30 minutes jumping out at me and orders my concentration. That is just a small example of the infinite possibilities for customization in this amazing software. The WindoTrader team, you are doing a terrific job of continuing to make a great product even better. I would no longer be interested in trading without it, as I would feel drastically ill-equipped."
Carolyn M (Washington) - Trading / Investing since 2002.
"I have used WindoTraderBLUE for several years and it has definitely helped my growth as a trader. I like that I can organize data the way I want to see it, to be able to look at volume in different ways. To put on different time frames and isolate different times of the day is important to me. While there are many "bells and whistles" in the program, the strength of WindoTraderBLUE is its ability to simplify my screen. I am able to organize price, time and volume data in a highly manageable fashion. I use a lot of information and WindoTrader makes it easier to read and comprehend. As Leonardo da Vinci said "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." WindoTrader also has a great community. Through many webinars I have learned from other traders and shared my own experiences with the software. The trader-to-trader interaction is a powerful resource that I don't think exists anywhere else."
Peter N (New Jersey) - Trading Floor 20 years / Full-time since 2006.
"When I was looking for something to help me with my trading, I looked at forums to see what everyone else was doing to identify potential opportunities. I looked at a lot of stuff on line and otherwise, and decided that volume based applications made sense to me. My search process over 6-8 months funneled down to what interested me most. I joined some of the popular "rooms" and followed some of the leading Market Profile educators. But at this point, although they were valuable in my education, I felt they had become a "crutch." Just the simplicity of having so much information on one screen with WindoTraderBLUE is a huge advantage for me. It has great functionality and is really fun to use. I like the way I can bring up properties, the way I can add levels and color them so easily, and the zooming and panning features. I feel independent in my trading process. Once I have my screen set up the way I want, I like to turn it on, put in my levels.....and trade. That is all I want as a trader is to be able to focus on the trading opportunity. BLUE is an amazing program, core of my trading."
Jay W (Canada) - Trading since 1998.
"Recently I had computer issues, and was unable to bring up WindoTraderBLUE. I have to tell you, I have really grown to rely on my set-ups. I forget how vulnerable I feel without BLUE -- I am quite addicted to it --in a good way!"
Craig H (Wisconsin) - Trading since 2002.
"Market Profile with BLUE is like watching the market in 3-D. It adds a whole other dimension to my analysis. WindoTraderBLUE gives me the tools to custom design the market profile charts in a manner that fits what I want to see, from the context down to detailed price and volume information. This has helped take my trading to a new level. The company's service, product training, and responsiveness to feedback is as much as I could ask for."
Marty F. Trader (Vancouver, B.C.) - Trading since 1993.
"I can't exactly remember where or when I first discovered Market Profile. However, like most aspiring traders, I was consistently looking for something to aid my trading and when I first saw a Market Profile schematic it made immediate sense to me. Some additional research led me to Jim Dalton which then led me to WindoTraderBLUE."
"To say it’s been a revelation is an understatement. Between the WindoTraderBLUE software and Jim Dalton's education, I've been able to not only maximize my natural abilities as a trader but have also developed a completely holistic view of trading that I never knew possible. I've learned to keep things simple and remain comfortable while trading. As a result, I not only see opportunities before they arise but am able to maintain a relaxed posture and act on them free from uncertainty, anxiety or fear."
"There are a lot of magic salesmen out there peddling the next great thing for traders. However, it’s nothing more than gimmicks wrapped up in a promise. With WindoTrader and Market Profile education, I'd like to be a positive agent of change within the trading education and advisory industry and offer my experiences, both successes and failures as a peer to other aspiring traders."
