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."

What Students Are Saying

“Trading in financial markets for people getting into it, for most, has proven to be very risky and complicated with lots of misinformation confusing people yielding poor result. But this and the other classes, and all the surrounding supports, cuts through like a laser and helps you hit the targets of success; that is, if you are willing to be disciplined to learn and create your version faithful to the process created by top pros.”

“Enjoyed Alex's instruction. I am impressed by his dedication and patience to over and over again go through the material for us. I like the way that Alex stayed with the book, because it is easier to follow and to go back over the material later.”

“I wish I had taken this class 20 years ago! Alex Perna is an outstanding instructor. Knowledgeable, patient, and a pleasant personality. He is also the first OTA instructor that I have had that followed the course manual in the correct sequence, rather than jumping back and forth as the other instructors have done. This helped to make the material (which can be quite overwhelming for a novice Investor) much easier to comprehend.”
