Stephen experienced the volatility of the world economy first hand during the booming “Celtic Tiger” era in Ireland. He worked in construction and, due to increasing demand, he was soon the owner of his own construction company. Then the Irish economy slowed and entered a supply zone and he decided to focus directly on the financial markets as a trader.

As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, Steven Hanahoe brings a huge passion for trading which he gladly shares with his students. He is a strong believer in money management and rules-based trading and constantly emphasizes the importance of an attractive risk-reward ratio before entering a position.

A specialist in Forex and futures, Stephen promises that students who take his class will be taught in depth the OTA professional approach to trading, chart analysis and price action.

What Students Are Saying

“Steve did a wonderful job tying the curriculum with advanced experience and we are all better for it. His mastery of FOREX and his ability to bring the class up to speed then surpass expectations was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed class and learned a great deal of practical application of the OTA methodology. I cannot emphasize enough how impressed I was with the instructor's ability and willingness to push the class through boundaries and bring in techniques and strategies that enhance OTA supply and demand. I have taught graduate level courses in some of the best colleges in the world, and Steve teaches at a graduate level while still honing the basics we learned in pro-trader. All material was covered and expanded leaving the student with an exceptionally broad view of FOREX that will definitely improve their trading... It has mine!”

Although I have four college degrees, I never had a better instructor than Stephen Hanahoe. His no-nonsense, hands-on approach was extremely effective for everyone in the class. I would travel across the oceans of the world to take other classes with him!”

“After taking the Pro Trader Class, I can say that Online Trading Academy is all it is advertised to be and more. Our instructor, Stephen Hanahoe, has been extraordinarily helpful in guiding us through what can certainly be a daunting process. His ability to relay complex information in a simple and straightforward way has been crucial to my learning experience. Equally as important to me has been Stephen's genuine desire to see his students succeed and grasp as much as possible in the limited time we had together.”
