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!”

What Students Are Saying

“Kelly was very knowledgeable of the OTA methods and he presented the material very clearly and added his personal experience to elucidate them. He also positively preached the mindset required to overcome hazards in trading and in life. He has made me very confident that the OTA trading method works and that I can learn to master it and profit from it. When Kelly comes back in the area I'll be inclined to take any course he'll offer. I am very upbeat to learn and grow in this community.”

“Kelly is a very good instructor. He combined his knowledge and experiences in his teaching. He has helped me to truly understand what really a zone is after trading for 6 months with just boring and exciting candles. No wonder I was missing several trades. He has provided me tools that would enable me to do proper research for stocks. His is a wonderful instructor.”

“Awesome! I enjoyed the class and the instructor. It was a really good group of individuals in the class that worked well together. Kelly was great at reinforcing a team and family environment. He was very patient, respectful, encouraging and knowledgeable about the topic. I appreciated him interjecting personal experience and stories of others who have been successful in trading, in addition to sharing his "why." Making it personal makes a huge difference for me as it shows me that despite my career path, that I can also be successful with proper training and discipline. I look forward to future classes and it would be great if Kelly would also teach a futures course!”

“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.”
