What Students Are Saying
“Online Trading Academy's Professional Futures Trader class is a powerful tool for those who want to learn how to supplement or replace current income, as well as build long term wealth! Ask to be in master trader Michelle Volmering's Futures class to learn the science of the art of trading Futures. Michelle teaches regularly at Online Trading Academy in Atlanta. Michelle is an amazingly effective instructor. Her passion for assisting others to achieve their own successes in this business and her ability to demonstrate successful strategies in a relatable fashion are an extreme benefit for her students who are given many opportunities to apply the lessons in live markets to learn how to do it themselves. You can't afford NOT to take this course from OTA and Michelle Volmering.”
“Michelle is a no nonsense rules driven instructor with specific definition for every term. Her knowledge of the subject matter is unquestionable. She pushes you to have a defined plan of action governed by specific rules that will give you the best chance of success. She removes the guess work. It's been an honor being under her tutelage.”
“Michelle is the best instructor I have had so far. Her knowledge is incredible and will definitely help me along my path to financial freedom.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the class and appreciated the opportunity to attend. It was nice attending a refresher with Michelle Volmering. It is clear she takes a lot of pride teaching students real scenarios and analyzing what techniques students need. The processes and the details she reinforces allow students to understand all the steps and signs for a good trade. She follows the core strategy but the additional in depth information she elaborated on was very much appreciated and brings it all together. She is a firm believer and teacher of the small details. This is refreshing because to a senior trader, what may seem trivial to them may not be clear for students and could just be what is necessary for them to completely understand the process: i.e: trend analysis, candle formations.”
“Risk management and discipline are always stressed in class as keys to skill development and managing the emotions of trading. Skill development is always the objective - making money will follow. Michelle is a great asset within the OTA organization and her commitment to the success of the students is clear.”
“The instructor spoke very clearly, involved the class in feedback, and always asked if the question from the student was answered adequately. She was open to one-on-one conversations to clear up specific points. We were amazed at her depth of knowledge and her ability to bring it to bear on a given topic which was being discussed at the time.”
