Russ Allen decided to make his lifelong passion, trading, his full-time occupation in 2003. With extensive experience in trading,
education, and business in general, he sought the highest-quality trading education he could find. This led straight to
Online Trading Academy.
After graduating from Online Trading Academy, he "opened for business" and began trading
full time; and has been making his living from trading ever since. Now, he is also an Instructor dedicated to helping others achieve financial independence. He does this through teaching, and writing a weekly column on options for the Lessons from the Pros newsletter.

What Students Are Saying
“Russ is fantastic! Very patient w/ the class and extremely knowledgeable w/ the content. He has a great way of keeping things simple and straight forward. He's very thorough and moves ahead or bounces around until a topic is covered and class is all ok. I look forward to more XLTs with him. Thanks, Russ!”
“OTA's course material is always well thought out in terms of educational content and presentation. Russ Allen is a great educator and I wouldn't be surprised if he was part of the team of educators who put together the material for the ProActive Investor course. He knew the material that well. If he ever leaves OTA I think his next station in life should be as a radio commentator for PBS. He has a great voice.”
“He spoke clearly and took his time to explain everything very well. He was also willing to answer questions very thoroughly.”
“Russ is a master of the concepts of PAI and also TS. Great at explaining and answering questions.”
