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 a Forex broker, 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.

“I am from the Atlanta Online Trading Academy, and everyone in the Charlotte campus made me feel welcome. I have been watching David Warner's "XLTs" and "Hour with the Pros" for a little over a year due to the recommendation of my forex instructor. David's approach to the currency market has made my trading more consistent with lower risk and greater reward. The way he explains has given me a clearer understanding of supply and demand. I figured if I am getting such great knowledge in about an hour of his time, a full week will definitely take me to a new level of trading that I have been striving for recently. He is a GREAT instructor!!!! I learned so much this past week in forex. I am an avid reader and have looked for the information he taught for years of trading even before becoming a student. He broke down a plethora of information that hedge funds and banks use to have an edge. The five hour journey was definitely worth it and I will definitely attend another one of his classes in the next few months to keep things fresh, be it closer to Atlanta or the campus in Dubai. The information was that powerful!!! As I am starting to take my trading to a more professional level and this has given me that!!! Anyways, no words can express the GREATNESS that David Warner is!!! David is walking greatness!!! I am going to schedule two more classes before the end of the year!!! Thanks for all you guys do and have done to make me a great trader!!!”
