After being accepted to the Graduate school, Josip Causic realized that most of his professors, his future role models and his mentors were financially insecure despite their extensive education. “Obtaining a doctorate certainly does not equal financial stability.” This realization caused him to change course from achieving an additional and higher academic degree into becoming financially literate.
Early on he realized that market psychology was a major part of trading, yet it was after an encounter with former market makers that he merged his retail trading experience with the methods used by floor traders. This gave him an immediate edge. At this juncture he came to Online Trading Academy for fine-tuning. He bought all the programs Online Trading Academy offered with the intention of becoming a member of the Instructor pool.
Josip is very excited to collaborate with Online Trading Academy, for he strongly believes in the MISSION OF TRANSFORMING LIVES. He has stated his firm belief that any student-trader who is both willing and open-minded enough to embark on a journey of personal growth through trading will mature beyond his wildest expectations. He goes on to conclude that those traders who are persistent enough to adapt to the constantly changing economic landscape will become examples for future young traders the world over.
In class, Josip uses his hands-on experience of options trading, both directional and volatility plays, to teach students to be successful traders. He particularly loves to focus on teaching the risk adverse options strategies, such as time spreads and Iron Condors.

“Josip is an excellent instructor with the right knowledge and good interactive skills. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn options. He also had some great stories. I enjoyed the class which was very informative.”
“The Professional Options Trading Class is the best course I have taken so far. I have attended 3 straight weeks of classes here at the OTA in San Diego (8+ hour days for 17 days in 21 days with an average start of 6 am!!). Very advanced strategies. Looking at it objectively, it seems that they would be the most effective method to utilize for reaching one's financial goals. For the last 2 weeks, Mr. Josip Causic was the instructor (other week was Pro Futures Trader course), and he is definitely one of the best instructors I have encountered. I look forward to my continuing education here at OTA and finally trading with real money.”
