David Fong has been trading since 2000, but didn’t come to Online Trading Academy until 2012. He describes that discovery as “a giant leap” in his knowledge and after studying several asset classes he decided to become an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

David loves giving back to the community as a volunteer, so teaching is a natural choice for him. He is always trying to learn more about a topic so that he can teach it even better and help students achieve their own financial goals.

What Students Are Saying

“He was very knowledgeable, excellent presentation skills and good management skills. Loved his attitude and good nature. I would highly recommend him to the other students. He possesses excellent teaching skills. He is more than an instructor or speaker.”

, April 2017

“Saying that the instructor was outstanding would not do justice; we need to think of another word, something that is worthy of his skills. This is only my third class and all have been outstanding, but David has opened the door to understanding and making things a lot easier. THANK, THANK, THANK you, David Fong; saying you are outstanding does you no justice.”

“The instructor is very intuitive and very good and clearly explained everything included in the class.”

“The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and helped explain everything until I was able to understand the CORE strategy properly. He was also very approachable and interested in answering my questions so I could better understand the processes. The support staff went out of their way to help, which was much appreciated as well.”

“I highly recommend the Pro-Trader Program to novice traders to give them the solid foundation they need before starting their trading career. I must say, OTA is the best place to go to learn trading. The staff and instructors are awesome, special mention to David Fong for his awesome and great teaching abilities and also for his patience in answering all questions in the class. Thank you, OTA and thank you, David!”
