Scott Chrisan brings a classic financial services background to his role as an Online Trading Academy instructor. He earned a degree in finance and worked at several major Wall Street institutions before beginning to trade in 2000. This experience “on the other side of the trade” helps him expose the tactics of professional investors so his students can avoid novice mistakes.

Scott specializes in Equities and his classes provide an updated view of how common stocks trade today. He believes the most important requirement is to understand the risk vs. reward equation for any trade and to follow a trading plan for execution.

Scott still day trades on an active basis so he puts his own money on the line as he helps students identify the best low-risk, high potential opportunities based on our supply and demand strategy. He thinks people are the most important asset of Online Trading Academy and was pleased to be invited to join as an instructor in 2014.
