“Online Trading Academy's professional trader class has given me the necessary tools to start intelligently and successfully trading. They stress risk management. The instructor and supporting staff are more than willing to address anything regarding trading. I like that the instructor is willing, and actually looks forward to, providing post class mentorship. The instructor encourages continued communication after you've graduated from this class. The assistance does not stop after class is over. I was able to experience simulated trading as well as trading real money. After becoming somewhat comfortable and successful trading stocks on my own, I will take a Futures/Forex class, and follow that up with wealth management class.”
