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.

Clifton loves teaching in an environment where instructors, Education Counselors and support staff work together to help students achieve their goals, as students from diverse backgrounds learn how to successfully trade the financial markets.
