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.

“Rigor and diligence are his strengths. He knows his stuff, obviously, and is someone who has started trading later in life so that is encouraging. There was hardly any question he did not have an answer for. His sense of humor is unmatched and a huge plus. Clarity of thought, deep understanding of the platform and ability to keep it simple were his hallmarks. Completely worth the time.”
