Ryan Watkins got his start early in life as an active investor. His passion for trading would lead to his graduation from Online Trading Academy in 1999, and he immediately became a trader on one of the largest trading floors in the US. His passion for trading is evident in his teaching and love for the markets.

Ryan trades for a living and uses his real-life experiences in his teaching so that new traders limit the common mistakes and are able to accelerate the learning curve that all traders must go through. He believes in a learn-by-doing philosophy in that his students are completely immersed into the trading content not just by listening and reading, but by doing. This active learning style lets students develop their skills as traders and gain the confidence needed to become successful traders.

Students that complete the Professional Trader course with Ryan learn what it takes to truly become a consistently profitable trader. They discover what it takes to not lose money, as well as the importance of strict rule follow-through and discipline. As an Instructor, Ryan believes in creating a positive and confidence building environment for students and stresses the importance of having a strong trading foundation for students to succeed.

What Students Are Saying

“It was obvious that the Instructor was passionate about teaching. He had a good sense of humor which lightened up the class. The Instructor made sure to check on whether any of the students needed additional help in a particular area by asking that we number our understanding of the lesson between 1 - 5. He used a consensus to determine how well the class was doing overall. He made sure each student had a good understanding of the subject before moving on. He was careful to answer all questions in a clear and concise way. Ryan Watkins rocks!”

“I really like Ryan, the instructor. He always slowed down enough to make sure we understood the concepts. Extremely thorough. I will only take online classes from now on. More support than a big class. Really happy.”
