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.

What Students Are Saying
“Passion, depth, and a love for clarity. He was very in tuned to the class and when we needed to go deeper for clarity.”
“Josip could read the class well and slow down / reiterate when needed. He had tons of great analogies that will help to remember concepts. He had great enthusiasm the entire week and really appreciate him teaching and sharing his years of experience w/ the class.”
“Thank you for a great teacher in Josip Causic; he blew my mind. Great guy.”
“The tool is sophisticated and intricate so I appreciated that our Instructor's (Josip) delivery style was to anticipate questions, show helpful tips, and expressly ask if students were grasping or had any questions before moving to the next part of the training. And the occasional humor he provided was enjoyable. I would gladly take another class from Josip.”
“Josip was entirely engaged with the class, kept the pace up but also stopped at individual's desks to make sure we were getting our planning done. If there was hesitation, he had answers, suggestions and experience. Josip followed the trading planner book but gave us his own examples of experience to enhance the day. At the end he shared his favorite sites for planning his day, his routine and helped us with the back charts of a 'Head' chart (shoulder-to-shoulder candles) to make it visual. I'd take another class with Josip; his energy after trading all these years was amazing.”
“Josip Causic is a master instructor. I appreciate his emphasis on application and his transparency. Josip shows genuine concern for students' learning comprehension and encourages accountability.”
