Operating a family farm, Michelle Volmering has been actively involved in raising, growing and delivery of commodities since 1980, specializing in grains, milk, meats and sugar.

The more she learned, the more her interest and curiosity grew and in 2002, she added futures and options trading to her portfolio.

In September 2003, Michelle's career path changed from being a Registered Nurse to being an active trader and educator in the financial markets. As an Instructor, she enjoys helping Online Trading Academy students by contributing to Power Trader Nation Community, Pro picks, Mastermind Community and being a PTN Radio guest.

What Students Are Saying

“It is a must class to learn from Michelle Volmering. I really can't put it into words how much of a great teacher she is and her definitions are not vague and left for potential misinterpretation. She also makes you accountable for these concepts and your next steps to become a skilled trader. ”

“Michelle Volmering is more than an instructor, she is a leader, a Mentor, an educator, a motivator, a task master and a no nonsense professional with a set of soft skills to match. She is what I would call a "Full Spectrum" Instructor. She is passionate and truly owns the responsibility and conviction of ensuring each student that walks away from her class has the tools to start making a difference in their financial lives. She is committed to what she does and she delivers on those commitments regardless of setting, Classroom, XLTs, Signature Series or MM Meet-ups or any other training she is engaged in. Her message is always the same and I love her mantra "Consistency breeds excellence". She talks it, she lives and breathes it and she delivers on it. When you go into a classroom with Michelle, get ready to learn. "Pick-up what she is putting down - It may just change your life".”

“Michelle is a great instructor. Very direct and to the point. She used every minute of the class possible to provide us with the knowledge and tools needed for Futures trading. Not a minute was wasted. She explained everything thoroughly. Gave lots of examples. Asked a lot of questions of students making us think. She answered a lot of questions as well. Her mind and heart are in the right place. She is very inspiring!”

“Michelle is extremely knowledgeable (I would not be surprised to hear she is one of the country's best futures traders). She went to great lengths to pass on as much of her techniques to us as she thought would be effective to us at our level; and showed her concern for us by constantly telling us that we could trade successfully but that we needed to be disciplined to avoid losses. I will be back to take her class again as I have a lot more to learn.”

“Education at OTA is invaluable. OK, there are not enough words in my vocabulary to adequately describe Michelle Volmering. To me, she is Wonder Woman. I have known WW for some time and have attended many of her classes and other instructional events. I am amazed at her story, journey and endless knowledge. My amazement at her intimate knowledge and the approach to trading that she has developed, and her willingness to share with her students, results in my utmost respect and admiration. She is a top-notch professional instructor and teacher. Her personality is magnetic. She is serious and dedicated in her instructional style. Demanding of her students. She makes it known that you better be dedicated to this OTA education. Michelle is the most dedicated person that I have known. She wants every student of the Academy to be as successful as they can. Her sense of humor and tolerance for the level of understanding of each individual is gratifying. The fact that she is still willing to tolerate me in her classes speaks volumes to her classiness as a person and a professional. She is beloved by myself and many, many others. The best of the best.”
