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.

“Since I first became an OTA student, I've always wanted to watch an instructor for a week. That happened this week. Bob freely shared his trading philosophy and methodology, making every step perfectly clear. Bob is an amazing person - skilled, experienced and great to be around.”

“I am here because of Bob Dunn. I had the unexpected added bonus of a great learning environment and staff here in Charlotte. I told Bob at the hotel this morning that he is my hero. I had him back in 2011 for my first Futures class in Dallas. I was brand new then and didn't understand much. But what I did learn I have never forgotten. He has a way of making a great impact for my style of learning. I love his CME stories and I can relate to many of his experiences.”

“The experience that Bob Dunn, our instructor, brought to the classroom gave the students a real lesson in successful futures trading which also included real time trading the likes of which I have never seen before. As a student, I can now create my own trading plan that I can use with total confidence.”
