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.

“David is a very knowledgeable and focused instructor. He is one of the most intense and engaged people I've met, as much as being a very passionate and intense young individual. I have also learned so much not only on the mechanics but the thought process of trading from him. I will try to emulate his trading techniques when I do my own trading. ”

“David Warner gave the most comprehensive and informative presentation I've seen yet. While the instruction on the technical side was detailed and complete, I learned about WHY the market may do what it does and how to anticipate market movement through fundamental analysis.”

“If you are going to trade Forex or any other asset classes you need to learn forex from David. He is a great instructor that OTA really needs to keep. He has been around the business for so long and knows what the institutions are thinking. If you react and trade like the big institutions you will be very profitable. His way of finding levels and OTA core strategies makes trading very easy. Money management is key in trading and David will help you with that as well. I hope he moves to Cali so I can continue to take his class over and over.”
