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 would highly recommend this course to anyone who has doubts about OTA. The process works and it shows in the history and hard work all instructors put in on a daily basis. I feel more confident that I can trade any asset class.”

, May 2017

“I enjoyed the program. This connected a lot of dots for me. What's more, I now feel empowered. I believe that I can hone my skills by using the tools and the support provided to take charge of my family's financial security. The instructor paced the class effectively and was sensitive to student's needs. I enjoyed the imagery/metaphors he used around the game of football and his experience in the military and as a commercial airline pilot. They certainly helped to enhance learning.”

“I truly believe there is not one question he could not answer. His presentation was professional and exceptional not to mention his manor. Kelly is very well suited for training us in trading and more.”

, April 2017

“What's not to like about Kelly. It was obvious that he came to class prepared. Even though it was new material, Kelly taught it as if he had been teaching the new course for months. He is friendly, approachable, knowledgeable, and has the ability to make the complex concepts seem easy. You would be hard pressed to find a better instructor than Kelly.”
