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.

What Students Are Saying

“I love Trading Academy because they are the number one company that I have found to be the ONLY trading school who is truly interested in teaching their students. I have done several other school programs and they do not come close to the quality that Online Trading Academy provides for their students. They offer both online and schoolhouse training. All their classes are carefully planned out with excellent professors who have actual trading experience. Their school facilities are beautiful and their staff are efficient and professional. Their programs are geared to teach you trading, no matter how many classes you attend. Online Trading Academy's focus is on teaching students to successfully trade in several trading markets. They are genuine, unique and a real teaching academy.”

“Bob is obviously a master trader who teaches how to quickly recognize and take opportunities presented by the charts. Bob's technical analysis infused with his floor trader knowledge created a valuable experience for me as a relatively new trader. I have been trading at the green belt level and feel like I just received my Black Belt.”

“Bob's unique ability to share knowledge while he simplified the trading process made it feel like I got a glimpse into the trading pits of yesterday. I feel like I have an advantage you can't get from a computer screen or power point presentation. Bob is exceptional in his ability to give real life coaching; it has impacted the way I trade... and how I look at trading. Anyone who gets to take his class is incredibly lucky. Bob's the best OTA has. Thanks Bob....thanks OTA.”
