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. Students say they enjoy Michelle's simple approach to understanding core strategy and her ability to demonstrate the application of the theories taught in class.

What Students Are Saying

“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.”

“Michelle Volmering is an outstanding instructor. She has the knack of taking new principles and subject matter and presenting them in a more simplified and meaningful way. She explained in a more logical way the underlying meaning of certain chart patterns and actions they represent. I can't wait to absorb the information presented and apply it in my trading. I am so looking forward to Michelle's next class to reinforce my understanding. Many thanks, Michelle!!”

“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!”
