What Students Are Saying

“Brock is very energetic and enthusiastic to the realities of markets and makes students work to master the fundamentals (like contract size, tick value, cost, expiration, front and back months, volatility, roll over, etc.) of futures. Patient enough to teach sizing, zoning, Set ups, stop management, logging, PnL management. Approach is methodical and keeps students free of fear.”

“Brock did a great job. He took plenty of time to explain the material contained within the curriculum. He expounded on thoughts and ideas outside of the curriculum only when it made sense to do so. Brock was very patient with the students and gave excellent instructions during the course of the class to ensure that everyone was doing exactly what they should. Brock seems to genuinely care (along with all of the other OTA instructors and staff) about the overall success of those whom he is teaching. I am pleased with my results and the knowledge gained during my week of the Professional Trader class, and I look forward to employing the knowledge and techniques learned in the class to begin trading.”

“The class was very enjoyable. It was taught in a very professional manner, but yet easy to follow and interesting. Thorough explanations and real world examples are very helpful. Brock's knowledge of the material is excellent. His presentation style is professional, but enjoyable at the same time. Really enjoyed his class.”

“I had absolutely no knowledge and never had any experience in the world of trading. I honestly felt a little nervous coming into the academy and starting classes because I thought I would be so lost. After attending ProTrader 1, and then especially taking ProTrader 2, I am now coming out of the class totally renewed and much, much more confident than I had expected. Brock Pierce, our instructor was so amazing! So helpful and so very detailed in teaching us and answering all of our questions. He was essential to me being confident and expanding my knowledge in trading. I truly enjoyed the program and am excited to continue being and learning in the academy.”

“Learning to read the charts has become much clearer after taking the Pro Trader class. I feel more confident in making the right decisions to make quality trades. Brock is excellent! He has simplified the process and is very patient and encouraging. I would highly recommend taking any class he is teaching.”

“Online Trading Academy is the place to gain the knowledge and skills for someone truly interested in trading. Brock Pierce is very good. His teaching style is very relatable since he was an OTA student too. He can sympathize with our concerns about being overwhelmed and anxious. He presents the material in a clear and concise manner. He takes the time to ensure we ALL follow along. If he sees us not catching on, he will go over the material again. I am very glad to have done this retake with him as the instructor.”
