About Online Trading Academy

A leader in investing and trading education for any market or asset class.

Mission Statement: Transforming lives worldwide through exceptional trading and investing education.

Online Trading Academy's roots can be traced back to 1997, as one of the largest trading floors in the U.S., with 180 traders averaging half a billion dollars in daily transactions. To improve results, managers and the top traders offered daily coaching sessions in how to trade more consistently and profitably.

In 2001, we shifted our focus to solely providing education. Today we have a community of over 150,000 investors that have learned to trade with the skill and confidence of professional traders.

Trader education for every need and experience level:

We offer professional instruction in all of our state-of-the-art teaching facilities around the world, as well as a wide array of home study materials.

Classes cover a spectrum of trading styles and asset classes, from Short Term Trading, Swing Trading, Position Trading, and Investment Theory for Stocks, Exchange Traded Funds, Options, Futures (Eminis & Commodities) and Currencies.

Our on-location courses are geared toward individual investors or traders, novice or experienced, who want to learn how to use the same tools and professional trading techniques as the professional traders on Wall Street. These courses offer a complete education and training experience focusing on trading fundamentals, technical analysis, risk management, and highly-developed skills of execution for virtually any trading instrument.

Once the mechanics of trading have been learned, students may opt to spend an additional training period in our virtual classroom called Extended Learning Track, an online learning experience which enables the student to choose the area of study that best fits their chosen trading style, asset class and learning objectives. We have also developed a series of home-study CDs, which can be used on their own or in conjunction with our courses.

Many of our classes offer tuition rebates from our partners. And we are unique in integrating live trading by the student in the class, with all expenses paid by us. We give you an account and cover your commissions and losses because we believe the only way to learn trading is to do it, in the live market with an experienced trader/instructor at your side.

As an Online Trading Academy student, you’ll become part of a community of active traders committed to succeed through continuously improving their professional skills. In fact, many of our classes offer free “retakes” for as long as you’re associated with us, while others offer lifetime learning at a reasonable cost.
