What Students Are Saying
“If you're seeking to learn about trading Futures, there's probably no one better than Michelle Volmering at Online Trading Academy to learn from. Not sure how else you could gain the knowledge she shares.”
“The Futures Program with Michelle Volmering is invaluable. She teaches the ins and outs of a complex asset with precision in a time effective manner to allow for time to practice live in class. She has clarified many details of Core Strategy and the Futures Asset through one session in her program and I learn something new every time I listen to her teach.”
“OTA has proven to me that being successful in the market is a reality. Michelle is amazing! The way she pulls all the information together to make sense of it is awesome.”
“I absolutely loved this Futures class taught by Michelle Volmering. She is an excellent teacher, helps us all understand the basics of trading to utilize in our personal trading plan at home and be successful.”
“I wish there was a 20 under satisfaction. Michelle Volmering is fantastic. She knows what she is talking about as she has been trading for 30 years and learned a lot the hard way; and she is able to bring all of this experience to the classroom in a POSITIVE way. She keeps the class moving but makes sure that she doesn't leave anyone behind. She will answer every question until she is certain that the student understands. At the same time, her explanation includes enough information to keep the experienced traders' attention. Lots of time for simulated trading and critique of the trades.”
“I found the instructor (Michelle Volmering) to be an incredible asset to my education. She kept the class focused, and used real examples for the information she was imparting to the class. She also added more clarity to lessons that were taught in previous classes. One day where she offered clarity to definitions of terms that are in general use by OTA, well it felt like an epiphany had occurred in that moment. Thank you, Michelle. I look forward to seeing you in the XLT.”
