What is Trade With Profile – The Profile Trading Development Pathway?

Trade With Profile is a top-rated skill development firm that was founded in 2017 by Josh Schuler.

Josh Schuler is a full-time trader and trading coach with over a decade of experience. He started out trading stocks in 2009 while getting his MBA (Master of Business Administration) and then added options to the mix in 2010.

What is Profile Pathway With Josh Schuler at Trade With Profile

By the end of 2012, he became a profiler (using volume profile & market profile as primary tools for viewing/analyzing markets) and decided to pursue trading full-time. He’s been consistently profitable in all but one year of his 10+ years of trading.

He has an extensive business background in various sectors: technology, investment banking, non-profit, etc. – and is also a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) with a Series 3 License registered with the National Futures Association (NFA).

In my personal opinion, Josh Schuler as coach/mentor and his Profile Pathway as a training course/program are drastically underrated within the “trading education” space. He offers one of the best programs out there for developing deep market understanding.

He doesn’t teach the typical (lousy/cookie-cutter/ineffective) technical analysis found in almost every other trading course. Instead, what he teaches is real market competence, skill, and edge through powerful auction principles and profiling tools.

4 Profile Trading Development Pathways – VOD, Group, 1-on-1, and *Pro:

There are currently 4 different versions of the Profile Pathway to choose from: Video-on-Demand, Group, 1-on-1, and *Pro. Each pathway revolves around the same 16 core training modules, but varies in support/interaction/delivery.


TradeWithProfile - Video on Demand Pathway

The Video-on-Demand (VOD) version of the course/program is the most popular because of the cost ($1,500 one-time). It offers immediate lifetime access to the 16 core modules and supplemental materials for you to work through at your own pace. It also includes 1 complimentary month of Group access – which includes live trading sessions, Slack discussions, weekly Q&A’s, and more (with the option to continue for $85/month).


TradeWithProfile - Group Pathway

The Group Pathway progressively works through each module of the course in a team environment. Each week has a specific development focus related to the current module – and a new one unlocks every week. So you can steadily progress through the course at a pace that supports deep internalization. The cost is slightly higher ($395/month for 4 months), but is well worth it for all of the additional features: daily trade plans/scenarios, key decision levels, auction statistics, monthly 1-on-1 coaching calls, and more. This is also the only pathway with a free trial opportunity → Start 1-Week Free Trial.


TradeWithProfile - 1-on-1 Pathway

The 1-on-1 Pathway is fully customized to your specific needs. You receive all of the same core modules and supplemental materials as those in the Video-on-Demand and Group Pathways, but the level of support/coaching is specifically tailored to you. This is the most expensive option at $10,000+ (the exact price is determined on a project-by-project basis) and is geared toward commodity trading advisors and aspiring career traders.


TradeWithProfile - Pathway*Pro

Pathway*Pro combines the training & mentorship provided by Josh Schuler through his Video-on-Demand or Group Pathway with a funding tryout through Apteros Trading. So it’s top-notch training/mentorship paired with the opportunity to earn a spot on a real futures prop desk. Pursuing this joint path offers several hundred dollars in savings as opposed to pursuing a TWP Profile Pathway and Apteros prop desk tryout separately.

Accelerate Your Development With Legitimate Market Competence and Trading Skill:

It’s honestly a shame how relatively unknown Josh Schuler and his Profile Trading Development Pathway are within the world of trading education. Because what he has to offer is the real deal – it’s one of the best trader training programs available online.

#1 Rated Trader Training Program For Developing Real Market Edge - Trade With Profile

But, sadly, most aspiring traders tend to get blinded by all sorts of nonsense – like sketchy gurus and their flashy marketing/advertising featuring all sorts of lifestyle components (i.e. stacks of cash, exotic cars, mansions, etc.).

Even though this sort of lifestyle marketing has nothing to do with developing legitimate market competence and trading skill, most people are still attracted to it. They want shortcuts/easy routes to trading success that don’t actually exist.

This is why some of the most basic and lousy trading courses/programs/services are actually some of the most popular. It’s not often related to quality; it’s typically related to the marketing/advertising surrounding it. It’s an illusion of legitimacy.

What I deeply respect about Josh Schuler is that he never takes part in any type of flashy, deceptive marketing. What he represents through every Trade With Profile channel (website, social media, etc.) is real habit & skill-building/training.

His Profile Pathway is the best edge/skill development program I’ve been through and deserves far more recognition than it gets.

    It sounds like Josh Schuler definitely has enough first-hand knowledge needed to teach trading. The 4 profile trading development pathways sound very comprehensive. They each seem to offer what is needed to learn how to properly trade, but more than that, they are also catered to people’s way of life and budget. It’s great that someone who’s looking to learn to trade, or develop any skill really have choices that can fit into their life, schedules and budget. Pathway Pro sounds like the best value for someone looking to put what they learn into practice since it also offers an opportunity at a real futures prop desk and Josh Schuler sounds like the best person to learn from.

      Hi Margarette – I appreciate you sharing your thoughts!

      In my personal opinion, Josh Schuler’s Profile Pathways (any of the 4 options) are drastically underrated and under-appreciated in the trading education space. What Josh provides is legitimate training & mentorship without hype, gimmicks, or any other marketing nonsense. So I deeply respect everything he has to offer through his Trade With Profile platform. It’s unfortunate that the masses are typically attracted to hype/flash instead of substance (especially in the trading & investing space) – because this program is the real deal for individuals who actually want to become skilled, competent, and self-sufficient traders.

    Finding a reputable trading coach can be a lot challenging. There are lots of folks who claim to understand the market, but they have little or no expert knowledge. Just basic understanding. Thank you for pointing out Josh Schuler. With his years of experience, he is a worthy fellow to follow and learn from in the market. I have subscribed to your channel.
