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.

“Clifton was great. His personal trading experience played much into his presentation. I thought it was great that he shared his successes AND his failures. His knowledge was obvious, as well as his enthusiasm for what he was teaching. He was open to all questions, and to my knowledge, answered every one to satisfaction.”

“I developed a lot of respect for Cliff. He showed a maturity level that I believe is beyond his years, and a great deal of knowledge about Forex, and he's always patient and willing to help with questions whether they are complex or mundane. I can see myself taking this class again in the future for a refresher.”
