After working as a football coach, airline pilot and broker, Kelly Boycks started trading on his own account in 2010. He soon discovered Online Trading Academy's supply and demand trading strategy and was so enthusiastic that he became an Instructor.

In his classes, Kelly draws on his extensive brokerage experience to give students a clear picture of the professional on the other side of the trade, and what they need to do in order to avoid novice mistakes. He balances technical tactics with common sense and stresses the need for patience and a market-tested trading plan.

He says he loves to see the insights that his students develop as they learn to apply the patented strategy with success—“the moment when frustration becomes astonishment is priceless!”

“I feel so lucky to have Kelly as my first-time Pro Trader class instructor. He's been a model of discipline itself! I deeply appreciate his patience and professionalism. He truly cares about his students and their success.”

“Kelly did an excellent job. He was able to communicate the topics in a patient manor and in a way all could understand. Kelly went over, repeated and demonstrated the more confusing topics several times to ensure all understood. The subject knowledge Kelly showed was impressive.”

“This class, taught by Kelly Boycks, was so content rich, interesting and attainable. His patience with a wide variety of redundant questions and student backgrounds was impressive. This is my first serious class at OTA and if he is an indication of the teacher's skill and OTA content, I am very excited to continue with this program.”

“I am at the beginning of a great adventure/New future. The short time I had at OTA is a wealth of information and just the tip of the iceberg! I am so eager to begin the next course! I would definitely recommend my instructor Kelly for any course offered here at OTA! Kelly has the patience and knowledge that has given me the confidence for my future goals in trading. He is very knowledgeable, organized, courteous and fresh, meaning he is not arrogant with his knowledge, and he has a sense of humor. I like how he deviates off of the subject with real life examples! I would love to have him as an instructor in the future!”
