Alex Perna became interested in trading as an economics student in college. After finding Online Trading Academy, he knew what he wanted to do and how he was going to do it. With the knowledge he gained as an Online Trading Academy student, Alex started to trade the Forex market using strictly the core methodology of Supply and Demand.

He was taught the importance of risk management, position sizing and psychology early in his trading career, so when he teaches a class he stresses the importance of these disciplines. Psychology of trading is taught every day in Alex's class, along with drills and techniques to keep the trader disciplined and consistent.

Alex is proud to be an Instructor for Online Trading Academy because of its dedication to students. He says, "I love the community OTA creates to help support it's students. With the love and passion each instructor brings to this community, learning is fun and the drive to accomplish very strong."

“Alex rocks! At my age it is extremely rare to find someone who can teach me something that I can digest without wondering if they were born on this planet. Alex may be 40 years younger than me, but he treated all of us well and explained what he knew such that we could all absorb it. I have been a teacher since 1968 and appreciate the skill, tact and talent required.”

“Alex was incredible. Many of the students came in from other parts of the country because Alex was teaching. I too will be looking for Alex in the future. Alex showed us so many nuances that I had never heard of and never thought of on my own. They solved many of my trading issues immediately. The volume of information was overwhelming but so invaluable. The best part about this education is that it never ends. There is more content to view and so many Forex XLTs and Hour with the Pros; you could never review it all. When you join OTA, you're in it for life.”
