Edmond Gutknecht fell in love with trading at the age of 16, and this passion led him to be hired as one of the first support specialists at the OTA Atlanta campus. Working with and helping over a hundred students overcome their limitations, he became acutely aware of the challenges new traders face. Now that he is an Online Trading Academy Instructor, he teaches students how to anticipate and deal with those same challenges.
Edmond teaches a process-oriented methodology that rewards trade consistency rather than trade outcome. He focuses on the true art of trading and shines light on many of the psychological market traps traders find themselves in. He leads by example, continually improving his own techniques, and communicating his success to students to motivate them in their trading.
Edmond considers trading “the fulfillment of a dream” and enjoys sharing his enthusiasm so that his students will not only become profitable in the markets, but have a good time while they are developing their skills.

What Students Are Saying
“Like the other instructors, really interested in and supportive of your success. Was professional, articulate, encouraging and funny.”
“Edmond was very informative as well as entertaining. He kept my attention the entire time and made learning the basics of TradeStation easy. I loved the fact that he made sure that everyone followed along. He answered everyone's questions and he was very knowledgeable about trading.”
“Edmond brought a very fresh presentation that continued to encourage me in this process. He did a very good job for us novices who are a little intimidated about all of this.”
“Edmond is first class. Very impressive. Gave great education, great examples and threw in a few movie lines; I think one was from Full Metal Jacket. My only concern was his youth, but that quickly disappeared. I'm used to learning from old men like Champ.”
“Edmund was very professional and knowledgeable. Being rather young, I thought he might have been a little less "in-charge", but he came across well-seasoned. And he spoke on a personal level rather than talking "over our heads". Well done!”
