Steve Bobbitt became interested in the markets in 1990, after having lost a substantial amount in the dot com bust. He decided that was the last time that would happen to him and set about getting an education.

Steve learned about the derivative markets while studying for a finance degree and again while getting his MBA. He went from broker-offered funds to trading options, and now manages and actively trades his own accounts.

He has successfully traded various products including equities, mutual funds, ETFs, options, commodities, metals, and futures. Steve compiles numerous facets of data on the various futures products and incorporates them into his trading strategies. As a student of the markets, Steve studies the works of early market pioneers and applies various techniques in conjunction with their work. As a result, his strategies revolve around simplicity and higher probability setups.

He takes great pride in passing on his vast knowledge to aspiring traders as an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

“After taking the class, it is clear the OTA training is imperative if you want to be successful as a trader. I'm looking forward to the next class but most of all to applying what I've learned to becoming a profitable trader. This format can easily become repetitive and, therefore, hard to pay attention. Steve is not only exceptionally knowledgeable but off beat and colorful - great characteristics for this class. He is more than prepared and helpful - he cares about the student's success.”
