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."
