Tim Pesut started out as a client of a brokerage firm and began investing stocks and Options in 1990. About a year later he became a stock broker to see how the system really worked and moved his way up from there. In 2005, he started trading FOREX and in 2007, he added index futures to his portfolio.

Tim's experience as an investor, broker, branch manager, and trader allows him to bring an understanding of the unique challenges of trading to the classroom. As an Instructor, he strives to give each student individual attention because as an Online Trading Academy graduate, Tim says that is what benefited him most. His overall goal is to positively impact the student by giving them a proven approach that they can see working before their eyes, boosting their confidence and having fun enjoying the process. He tries to ensure the students learn and understand the material, but more importantly, are able to apply the various aspects of trading in a real world environment so the student is well on the path to becoming successful in their trading endeavors. He wants each student to feel that they are part of a family that is dedicated to their success as a trader.
