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. In 1987, she began investing in individual equities and mutual funds to provide additional protection and balance for long term retirement. 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

“I thoroughly enjoyed my Futures class with Michelle Volmering! She was always professional, EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE, helpful, and took time to answer everyone's questions to their satisfaction. Michelle's explanations were understandable and yet took it to a deeper level as far as content goes. I cannot give her enough kudos for all she brings to the classroom!”

“Michelle is an OTA treasure. Her life experiences in the medical field and trading field have equipped her to be an outstanding instructor. She is real, genuine and certainly authentic, as a result she has the respect of her students, staff and OTA leadership. I have attended and will attend her Thursday night lecture, which is standing room only. What does that say about her? Yes, Michelle is an OTA treasure.”

“When I entered the class I felt lost and insecure because I am technology challenged. However, Michelle erased my concerns by providing logical and correctly paced, for me, information while demonstrating in a way that I could understand and master. I feel blessed to have had her as my instructor. All the teachers are wonderful, but Michelle meshed with my learning style.”

“Michelle is an amazing instructor that has very detailed knowledge about the market and is able to communicate that information to the class in a very clear and succinct way. And, she is awesome at presenting the material without going through the book slide by slide but uses the slides to interject information into the class. Of all the instructors that I have had so far, I believe Michelle's instruction style 'clicked' for me. I am so grateful I was able to attend her Denver Class.”

“Michelle's a unique combination of counselor and task master. Both play a vital role in her obvious mastery of the markets & her ability to address the needs of the different students. She's one of the best!”

“An outstanding teacher and a lovely person. Dedicated, disciplined and determined that we should absorb as much as we could of her extraordinary knowledge in the short time available. Yet, I suspect that we could only scratch the surface of her wisdom.”
