David Warner grew up a stone’s throw from New York’s financial district, and knew from an early age he wanted to become a trader. He started trading in 2004 and joined a stock trading club in college, leading to what he calls a “healthy obsession” with the financial markets.

David developed a focused and disciplined attitude in the Air Force, where he was not only the most awarded Airman on his base but also a trainer and educator. After leaving the service he became a broker at our partner FXCM, where he managed relationships with top-level clients and institutions. He joined us as an Education Counselor in 2013, and swiftly distinguished himself for his ability to match students’ needs with their learning opportunities.

All of David’s experience came into play when he became an Online Trading Academy instructor. He believes that wealth is a mindset that can be taught, along with the skills to think and trade like a bank and financial institution.
