Steve Misic began his career in the financial services industry in the 1990's working for various insurance and retail brokerage firms serving clients in the equities, Forex, and commodities futures markets.

Steve became a mentoring student of Sam Seiden's in the early 2000's, after being introduced to him by a mutual friend. As someone who has traded using the Online Trading Academy core strategy for several years, his approach as an Instructor will focus the class on learning how to identify demand and supply levels, and how and when to trade these levels in regards to the primary trend of the market for swing and position traders. Steve applies these rules to the equities and equity options markets, the index and commodity futures markets and to the treasury and currency futures markets.

“Steve Misic's teaching in Option class is exceptional. He tirelessly, patiently and with even temper covers the whole material. He also goes beyond the required and expands to help everybody be on the same page. No questions left unanswered. He is so nice and thorough that students get encouraged to ask questions. His teaching is also very practical.”

“Steve was an excellent instructor. He covered all the material in the book and provided a lot of additional insight. He has a considerable amount of patience and worked with everyone on order entry. I would highly recommend Steve Misic as an instructor for Options. He was very helpful and provided lots of insight into other classes and strategies.”

“He instructs with enthusiasm, humor, kindness and patience. He also displayed the heart of a student by researching information at the students' request...on more than one occasion he did the extra research on his own personal time. He also was very willing to remain after class was "officially" over to assist a student who was unclear about a concept. Not once did I sense he was ready to "be done"... Even at the end of the day, he was still quite willing to assist a student in their learning process. He presented the information in an exceptionally very easy to understand manner. And, he covered all the material in the Forex "book". Steve made a point to call attention to the many "pearls" contained within the book and gave a wonderful overview of the resources located in the OTA web site. Steve is the only instructor I have ever had that covered all the material - homework assignments, quizzes, and all of the topics presented in the Forex book. Without a doubt, Steve is a wonderful educator and a huge asset to OTA.”

“Steve is so knowledgeable. He followed the course material and added extra kernels of Forexy goodness wherever possible. The reason I felt the class was a little too fast for me was that there was a lot of new information I had to process.”

“Steve Misic was great and kept the class interesting and engaging. It was easy to understand him and he gave great examples that I hope I will be able to use in the near future.”
