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.

“David was phenomenal the entire class. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had, that's including high school and university, keep up the good work. I know you are doing extremely well trading, but what makes me respect you the most is that you are willing to step away from your personal trading to significantly improve our lives.”

“To say that I have learned how to trade Forex from David, is like saying I'm learning how to box from Floyd Mayweather. He is simply the BEST!!! His knowledge on Forex gives the students confidence to place correct trades. What I saw him do in class blew my mind. David has a patience and attention to detail that I respect very much. It's truly a blessing to have learned from him!”

“Retaking the forex course with David was a great experience. Learning from someone new just reinforces what you have learned before and provides another perspective to add to your learning. David was an excellent instructor. He incorporated OTA's course strategy really well into his own strategy that he uses. He was very helpful whenever we had questions and was very patient. He provided really good information about how he trades and made things simple to learn.”
