Online Trading Academy

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. Gabe is also OTA's Pro Picks Manager, so students who have him 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.

What Students Are Saying

“Took this both because of the instructor's reputation and for the Core Strategy review. Highly recommend both as all concepts are distilled to their essence and so clear, plus with great sense of humor. Hitting on all cylinders. Gabe is excellent at answering all questions and has incredible patience. Handles so well the different levels of expertise. Great sense of humor that helps us all learn. Great clarification and distilling concepts to their essence.”

“Our instructor, Gabe V., placed great emphasis on explaining the specifics of futures and core strategy and the needs for a solid process before we start trading with real money. He went into great detail explaining these zones along with many examples that it is now a lot easier to select the correct starting locations for trades. Excellent teacher for the material. His past experience was obvious when it came to explaining various situations.”

“Gabe is a straight shooter. No time for BS. He gives you a CLEAR, CONCISE, CONSISTENT PROCESS TO BE SUCCESSFUL, the watchlist and the methodology to check your watchlist. A simple method to read the candles, SET the trade and be successful.”

“Let me begin by saying that I was not comfortable coming to this class. Only some of the Core Strategy was making sense, and I was a little bit profitable in the simulator but experiencing more losses than profits (which technically means I was gambling). Then . . . I MET GABE! After just 5 days with him, not only do I FULLY UNDERSTAND Core Strategy, but I also understand how to profitably trade Futures. The way he teaches Futures, by re-teaching Core Strategy, was brilliant! Simply, GABE IS A SUPERSTAR . . . and I would personally fly to any location in this country to re-take a class with him . . . which I am certain that one day I will do when I need the refresher! This class was amazing, the light bulb turned on for me (and several of my classmates), I had my best week of trading in the simulator, and I feel far more comfortable than I have ever felt about trading in the market! Gabe . . . I salute you fine sir!! Thanks a million (and if I had that much to pay you, I would!”

“I very much loved this class. Gabe has reinvigorated my love for trading. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to learn from the best. Gabe is not only an incredible instructor, he is also hilarious and just a pleasure to be around. What a fantastic experience.”

“The Core Strategy works like wildfire if you can detach your thinking from your emotions. Gabe is the man, he brings the course content and the psychology of trading into perspective, thus making it easy to understand what successful trading is all about. I just found me a mentor!”
