Larry Jacobson was first introduced to trading in 1995 through an article he read in Bottom Line Personal. In 1998, he became fascinated with Warren Buffett and was inspired to begin trading stocks. In 2010, he found his way to Online Trading Academy where he honed his skills as a stock, options, Forex, and futures trader, as well as becoming a long-term wealth creator and proactive investor, though his trading preference is options and equities.

As an Instructor, Larry is passionate about imparting to his students the very knowledge and tools that he enjoyed learning throughout his own Online Trading Academy educational experiences. He lives by his philosophy: "Invest in yourself, not stuff - because throughout your life, education appreciates, possessions depreciate."

Larry's additional role as Director of Student Services is a great fit for him, as Online Trading Academy's passion and dedication toward educating its students to think and trade like professional traders is what inspired Larry join the company as an Instructor. He says that he also appreciates the way they have created a like-minded community of students and instructors that get to interact with each other, both inside and outside of the classroom.

What Students Are Saying

“Larry did an amazing job of making a complex subject understandable. I am very confident that I can successfully trade options with some practice and review through the XLT program.”

“Larry is an amazing instructor. He completely understands the mindset of a student and is able to teach and present the course materials in such a way that builds slowly and consistently, so that at the end of the 5 days you feel ready and capable of trading in simulation mode.”

“Larry shared his own learning and mistakes and constantly gives us the rules to help the students to master the skills. I definitely feel that I have the knowledge and have the confidence to execute trades on my own.”
