Bob Dunn is the only Online Trading Academy Instructor who was formerly a professional race car driver. He attended college on a hockey scholarship and has built high performance engines for a living. But when it comes to trading, this need for speed translates to a healthy respect for a disciplined approach to reading the markets.

Bob has been trading interest rate futures since 1980 and this is still one of his favorite market plays. Online Trading Academy’s supply and demand strategy allows him to find low-risk, high-potential trades regardless of what the overall market is doing.

Bob is an active member of Power Trader Nation, where he often shares his trading ideas. Students in his classes can expect an instructor who will let them go as fast as they want, yet isn’t afraid to put on the brakes and remind them of the core strategy that helps ensure their trading success.

“I had been looking forward to attending a live Class with Bob Dunn for quite some time as I had only seem him a few times in the Clubhouse. Bob is a very generous Instructor with his time and knowledge and clearly loves teaching his classes. His sincerity in wanting his students to be successful is evident throughout the class time. He shared 4 strategies and explained them throughout the class with enthusiasm and I believe I can take what I learned and be successful with them. Bob Dunn is an excellent instructor and is enthusiastic and entertaining in his teachings, I am very glad I had the opportunity to take his class!”

“Bob Dunn is an exceptional mentor who brings decades of real world floor trading experience to the table. He has a funny way of conveying the subject to the students. While I'm comfortable with the OTA Core Strategy (SZ/DZ), Bob has taught us an entirely new dimension in taking the trades. Bob's class is a must have for all OTA Futures students, once you take Bob's class you will not be sitting and waiting for the price to hit the zone. I'm very comfortable with his charting/patterns technique and I'm glad that his technique matches my personality/trading plan. I'm glad to have attended his class and I'm looking forward to doing this again.”
