Tom Dosdall Author of Dosdall Daily Edge

Tom has supported traders and investors worldwide across all dt execution categories. With the understanding that each client is independent of another, Tom has shown an ability to listen to the needs of each and match them with the service or product that best suits their circumstances.

If you are a self-directed trader, you can expect objective guidance on finding the right balance between price and value. That might mean anything from finding a sharp platform to help you do what you already know you want to do or providing consultation on some of the most cutting edge trading indicators on the market.

If you are more of a “hands off” investor, ask Tom about the network of professional advisors that he has come across over his years in the industry. Once he can get a feel for your risk tolerance and objectives he can help you to deploy a program.

Are you somewhere in between fully hands on and fully hands off? Consider how you can leverage Tom’s experience for your benefit in a broker-assisted relationship. Together, you will analyze the markets that you are most interested in and come up with a trading plan that you are comfortable and confident with.

In summary, his goal is twofold: to ensure that each client he works with is guided with the resources needed to trade with confidence and that they are equipped with the knowledge and comfort needed to grow as an investor in the new global economy. Tom holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Colgate University.

“Why I Chose DT” Responses from Tom’s Clients

Elizabeth J. - I chose Daniels Trading because of the follow-up. If Tom had not called me back, I would never have chosen Daniels Trading to work with. I have not regretted my decision at all. He has been very attentive to my needs. Thanks, Tom!
Chuck N. - Being in agriculture I had heard of Daniels and their favorable reputation. But finding Tom Dosdall, was like finding a true gem. He contacted me before I was ready, and he backed off, getting back to me when I was ready instead of pressuring me. Tom also explained to us very carefully and completely the... Read More.

My broker, Tom, is more than willing to assist you with your trades, is very courteous and punctual with fill and/or sell order confirmations. Customer Service is unbelievable. Thank you, Tom, and thank you, Daniels Trading.
John E. - I enjoyed speaking with Tom Dosdall. He was very patient with me, as I believe we originally spoke in January 2010, I did not send in the capital for my account until early May … .

Farrish B. - First of all, Daniels Trading was recommended by US Charts. However, the continued assistance from Mr. Tom Dosdall has proved to be a tremendous help.

Tom A. - [I chose Daniels Trading because of] the many useful features of the website, and the quality of interaction with Tom Dosdall over a period of several months.

Gloria R. - I chose Daniels Trading because as I am completely new to trading commodities futures and options, I wanted a broker who knew how to work with beginning traders. [I wanted] someone with whom I could be comfortable, who could help me make the transition from paper trader to real trader and help me avoid the... Read More.
Tim B. - I was looking for a new trading indicator that used market profiles when I came across the TAS [Tools]. They recommended that I use [dt Pro] as a platform.

Tom will follow up and keep you posted with the trade entries and exits by... Read More.
Patrick E. - Having been through 5 different brokerage houses in the past 14 years, I've found a cool, balanced and perceptive overall character in Daniels Trading. Their congruence with the GBE course teachings is an important factor for me, as well. Tom Dosdall is a clear-headed, thoughtful, even-keeled broker and if the rest of the staff in their beautiful downtown Chicago office (over-looking the Chicago River) is like that, then DT is staffed with the best and the brightest.
Steve F. - I was interested in the dt pro platform and Tom Dosdall gave me a call and gave me professional and accurate answers to my questions. I was impressed and opened an account.
