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.

“It was the most enlightening, most brilliantly inspiring class I've ever taken that I can ever remember! It was presented in such a wonderful order, and with David's own information while covering all the material in the manual. He is a fabulous communicator and teacher. His ability to break down the information for beginners comes across as his pleasure!, as opposed to others that may feel frustrated. He is kind, patient and truly brilliant. It's hard to say enough positive things about him. He is an absolute jewel!!”
