Gabe Velazquez got his start in the markets as a broker trainee in 1997 and witnessed the gut wrenching fear of investors during that time period and the wild speculative euphoria of the late 90's. That experience brought to light the importance risk management plays in trading and investing. In fact, it's greatly influenced the way he trades today.

After many years of managing other people's money, Gabe now concentrates full time on trading his own portfolio and teaching for Online Trading Academy. Students who have Gabe as an Instructor will benefit from his first hand experience of daily involvement in the market. He brings with him an acute awareness and understanding of how the markets really work. Articulating this knowledge clearly, succinctly, and with enthusiasm is something students can appreciate.

Gabe looks forward to sharing his passion for trading and the markets with you at one of his next scheduled classes.

“Gabe is an excellent instructor. In the past I have attended several of his online classes in XLT; that is why I decided to retake this course. Gabe, with his excellent trading knowledge and presentation skills, gave us several examples of charts to explain OTA strategy. I really liked his way of teaching because he was very thorough and very determined to make sure that we understand all concepts without any difficulty.”
