Clifton Miller became interested in trading as a student at Georgia State University, where he was exposed to a curriculum including the derivatives markets and the trading strategies used by hedge funds and investment banks. His research led him to Online Trading Academy, where he became a student in 2010 and an Instructor in 2015.

After completing his Pro Trader class, Clifton gravitated to the Forex markets and also worked in Student Support at the Atlanta campus. His advanced knowledge and experience and his ability to solve problems one-on-one are now available to his students.

“Overall the class was very good, Cliff was an excellent teacher- I heard that many times throughout the week from my peers who were taking the class with me. Cliff was engaging, thorough and informative on how to answer questions from novice traders like me. He was patient and he used some of his own experiences to ease some of the tension we sometimes feel when it seems over-whelming.”
