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.

“An OTA gem. Bob is not vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Bob is that special flavor, like spumoni. That might not be everyone's favorite, but if he is your flavor, you will never have another kind of ice cream. Bob Dunn ROCKS.”

“There is nobody like Bob Dunn out there. Great teacher with a lot of insight on the markets. Opened my eyes to trading in a bit of a different manner but still taking supply and demand into consideration. If you want to go above and beyond in trading, Bob Dunn is the man to learn from. I enjoyed this class very much and might even consider retaking it in the future.”

I was very fortunate to have him as my instructor as his stories telling and anecdotes brings an inside to the financial investment world that is impossible to get from books. I will definitely look him up and enroll in another class with him.”
