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.

“Love Steve. Had him both for my Pro Trader course in December & now again for Forex. I appreciate that he has been involved with OTA since its inception. Loved Steve's stories and the fact that he takes time to make sure every student understands what he's demonstrating. He answers everyone's questions. Which is so great--when I think I understood something, someone asks something that based on Steven's response, I realize I didn't understand at all, lol.”

“The instructor, Steve Misic, engaged the students and could relate to students at all levels of experience. Many students were re-takes but I knew nothing about Forex before this class; he gave me the confidence that I too will be a successful Pro Trader. It takes great skill to teach a complex subject such as Forex to students like myself with zero experience mixed in with more experienced students. I am confident that I will become a successful Forex Trader. I would recommend Steve Misic to any student.”
