“I have been trading for years. I will leave this class far more confident than I have ever been.”

“There is no better bang-for-your-buck educational opportunity for anyone looking to change careers. Trading will drastically change my life, my time, and the choices that will be available for my family for the rest of our lives.”

“The thing I like the most is the fact that the staff is bending over backwards to adjust to our situation. We are out of the area. They are making sure we receive the education.”

“So far in my brief experience, OTA has met my expectations and is everything they said it would be. I have a lot to learn and am in no way prepared to start trading with real money etc., but everything I've learned and done is what was conveyed when I signed up. Looking forward to the next class.”

“The place was very neat and clean as always. Ed and Hailey were very personable as everyone I've ever met or had as an instructor have been. They keep the class sizes to where you can get as much one on one help as needed along with having a wonderful learning experience with the whole group.”

“I laughed, I cried....it became part of me! Seriously was very intense at times but invaluable to my future as a successful trader. Everyone I have met has been extremely supportive and encouraging. A genuine desire to help me with my trading goals both professionally and personally.”

“I was fed up watching my investments stagnate in the hand of my financial adviser. Since retiring, the growth of my retirement account slowed dramatically and started decreasing as I started drawing down the funds to supplement my fixed income. I also noticed that the trading fees and account servicing fees were exceeding the growth. I found OTA in an ad online. I took the preview session and saw a way to put my invested funds in my control rather than that of the brokers and market movers. I am learning to trade like a 'pro' and believe that the education I receive by classroom and online training will put me in the driver's seat with my money. The support from the trainers and counselors has been amazing because they do not want to see you fail. The training is for a lifetime and the merits of the training will make that 'lifetime' worth living.”

“Online Trading Academy is the perfect place to earn your financial know-how at. I am happy to be one of your students.”

“Knowledge is truly powerful. Learned things that were truly eye opening about risk that I did not even know existed in the market. I feel that I will be able to trade now much more safely.”

“At the beginning it sounded like a gimmick, but the more you are involved and the more you take the classes the more you understand this is the correct way to go and learn how to trade at the stock market. The best is to learn from people who are actually traders and have been doing it for a while. So far I have taken classes with three different instructors and I can tell it is the best 'cause they will load you with valuable experience.”

“OTA has grown and matured since my original investment seven years ago and continues to be my go to source for professional talented instructors, helpful materials, good online content and a great personal touch. I always feel that the staff at the Charlotte OTA has my best interests at heart. Indeed, investing in OTA has been my best investment so far.”

“I am continually impressed with OTA and their continued evolution in order to meet, and exceed, the needs AND wants of the students. Deciding to be an OTA student will NEVER be a decision that I regret.”

“Everyone was very friendly and the place was kept very clean. There was plenty of parking space. The lunches were very good and there was always plenty to drink!”

“Online Trading Academy has far exceeded my expectations with their amazingly supportive staff and excellent instructors. You never feel cut off or isolated; there is always someone to call or email for help. They are sincerely trying to help you succeed, and they do very well at that!”

“Education is obtained through learning, experience or both; at OTA, all courses I have had the pleasure of taking have been conveyed through both via courses and instructors.”

“Instructors continue to impress, with real world knowledge making all material extremely relevant to my needs.”

“Love it. Everyone was very helpful, including the other students.”

“I would strongly suggest that anyone who thinks trading might be for them. to check out OTA.”

“The combination of quality course material and a phenomenal instructor created great learning. Hands on application cemented the learning.”

“This place was the catalyst for the change that I wanted in my life. ”

“Facility was great in Charlotte. Staff was very helpful and felt at home; even though I did have to drive four + hours to this location in order to see Bob Dunn.”

“I am coming up on 30 days with OTA. I have been exposed to 3 live (XLT) instructors and one on location class. All have been phenomenal. I have crammed hours of self learning in over these past weekends in anticipation of "putting it all together" during my PRO TRADER 1 course. Tre was one of the best instructors I have had for anything in my adult life. He was more than qualified to teach this class and he presented the information in a manner that everyone in the class could grasp. He met people where they are and that is hard to do in a class with people of all different backgrounds and skill levels. I look forward to my PRO FOREX course and am excited to keep the learning coming!!!”

“The curriculum OTA and its instructors provide are second to none. The options I now have to provide for myself and my family as a trader can be found with no other career path.”

“Your commitment to allowing students to take retakes is a major selling point. Hearing different perspectives will only help your knowledge of the markets. Thank you for offering this opportunity! ”

“OTA has lifted the veil, revealing the truth, and now it's clear there is no "Wizard of OZ" on Wall Street. The driving force behind the markets have been the banks and major investing agencies. Now I'm obtaining the tools and training from OTA to protect my money and make my money work for me rather than letting the "market makers" keep stealing it away.”

“I feel that I have been introduced to many tools that will give me the opportunity to positively change my financial future. I appreciate the honesty from everyone involved in my education that this will take work and time and is not a get rich quick scheme. I also like the fact that community support from the school is strongly suggested. So far the overall experience has been very positive.”

“I knew many of the concepts they discussed but had never implemented them nor thought of them in the context that OTA put them in relative to trading. They gave me real experience and insight as to how these concepts might be used to better manage my money. ”

“I would like to inform that OTA option instructors are great.....OTA has very knowledgeable and dedicated instructors who can EDUCATE anyone who has no idea about trading in a short time effectively to start successful trading business.”

“I have been looking for a long time for a school that not only teaches what tools to use to trade in the market but how the market really works and how I need to trade to be successful in it. FINALLY I have fond that at Online Trading Academy! They have great instructors, materials, a working relationship with the trading platform of choice, a very good facility, a growing community of traders, and weekly real time and trade activities to learn and profit from. I believe I will be a long time student of the Online Training Academy.”

“The instructors at OTA are absolutely excellent. Their knowledge base and their ability to bring those skills to the teaching arena have been instrumental in my evolution into trading. I began knowing practically nothing about trading and now have an excellent base to grow and become a successful professional trader. Amazing....Thank you OTA....this will transform my life.”

“I have quite a few classes at OTA and the learning experience has never disappointed me. ”

“The staff at OTA go out of their way to make your learning experience enjoyable.”

“OTA provides a wealth of knowledge to assist in managing my wealth and future income... The resources are phenomenal and sometimes overwhelming, but having it at your fingertips is reassuring.”

“I'm convinced these courses have made me a better and more confident trader. The system makes sense and has proven itself over and over.”

“Online Trading Academy has by far been the best educational investment that I have ever made. I have great respect for all of the staff and instructors, and thank them ALL for taking time to train new professional traders how to do it the "right" way.”

“I learned more about trading in two weeks here than in two years of study on my own. I feel very confident about my future income potential no matter what happens in the world or to the markets.”

“I am very impressed with the quality of the facility and staff of OTA, but am most impressed with the approach to training new traders. The holistic approach of identifying trading opportunities, proper risk management, successful trade execution, and addressing the psychological framework for trading is the route that I feel would best prepare students for a successful trading career. Making the student feel that they can successfully trade the markets without losing everything is a major hurdle overcome. Wish I had spent my money on education instead of losing trades!”

“There is no better place to learn about the trading than OTA. You walk out with the tools and direction to become successful!”

“There is no instructional trading course that compares with OTA!”

“After finishing the course I am much more confident that I will be successful in trading in the future, and that education must not stop at any level. Education, training and practice will help me to achieve my goals and Online Trading Academy is the perfect place to do that.”

“I truly enjoyed the whole atmosphere of the class and the staff. The instructor took the time to answer questions and help with the trading skills, as did students helping each other and sharing ideas.”

“I learned all of the wrong ways to trade before I came to OTA. I paid for other educational courses and still lost money. What sets OTA apart is that they take you from the very beginning, teach you the basics, teach you a methodology, and then when and how to apply it. It is the complete package. They leave nothing out. I really feel like I can go home and begin to do this now. And the great thing is, if I go home and get confused, I still have a support system to fall back on, either through the center, XLTs, or even the network of students I went through class with. ”

“Wonderful girls in the office. The owner is very polite and friendly. The coffee is good. Lunches are very nice... I appreciate the food gift. I am so encouraged and hopeful each time I learn a little bit more.”

“When you are so hungry for knowledge time flies so fast! The same is true when you are having fun! we can't believe how fast these 5 days have gone by. Also enjoyed meeting new people with whom we hope to stay in contact with!”

“Best value for dollar that I have seen in years.”

“Yesterday I hit the ES short near the open and, after hitting both my targets and taking profits, I went long on the NQ and added to the daily gain. It is the first time that I was able to capture the market both short and long on the same day and make money on both directions with a net result, my first $1000 profit day... I will tell anybody what I think of Online Trading Academy. There is no way I could have figured this stuff out without you.”

“I've traded for years and made many expensive mistakes. Now that I've gone through almost all of the offered courses, I feel that I can go from losing money to consistently making money. As they say, if you think education is expensive, try ignorance. ”

“Online Trading Academy will provide the knowledge and confidence needed for any individual to trade all asset classes.”

“The course is quite educational. I have learned a great deal in the two classroom settings and a good deal in the online student study lobby. I would recommend for anyone serious about getting into trading the market.”

“My wife and I are very pleased with the course pace and content. The coaches, support staff and training center are the best. It seems like every possible angle has been thought of and provided to make positive outcomes a reality! Thank you!”

“I received excellent instruction. It was time and money well spent.”

“Online Trading Academy is the absolute best provider of education for Day Trading and Investing. The lifetime student provision allows for continual growth in learning and practical application. Plus, the teachers ALL practice and trade what they teach, which grounds the authenticity of the Academy. I would recommend Online Trading Academy without hesitation to anyone considering the field of Financial Markets as a means of income or investment.”

“I have truly enjoyed my learning experience with Online Trading Academy and look forward to learning even more. Now to put it all into practice!!”

“Online Trading Academy was the best place for me to increase my trading skills. Charlotte was a friendly environment for learning and meeting new traders on the road to trading success.”

“After moving several times and sitting on the sidelines, 20+ years due to frustration with the market, I was looking to gain enough knowledge and skill to be able to fire my financial advisor and look for someone I could work with hand-in-hand. I came across Online Trading Academy and convinced my wife to join me at, what now I believe to be, the best financial decision I've made in my life! Although still early in the process, I've been exposed to personnel, resources and training that have already shown fruit and positive outcome. I look forward to my continued growth and experience. I know now that the financial advisor I was looking for is within me, and the training, experience and resources to support my financial decision are at my reach. Thank You, Online Trading Academy!”

“I have found the staff and quality of course material very helpful. I am eager to put what I've learned in the classroom into practice!”

“If you really want to know how to trade, get to an Online Trading Academy Center near you!”

“Enjoy the investment that the staff makes in my goals, that will allow me to reach my financial goals.”

“Setting me on a path for a better life. ”

“The classes and long term educational opportunities available with the Online Trading Academy have immediate and enduring value.”

“Friendly atmosphere with a very competent instructor.”

“Myself and my wife knew very little about trading, only that we knew we needed knowledge prior to coming to the school. We have been taught in a professional and appropriate manner, with a basic groundwork and fundamentals in place to continue on our quest to manage our own retirement accounts and to understand how others are managing our money. We would recommend this school to anyone who is looking at a good, sound and practical approach to trading.”


2013

“This course is my first experience with the Trading Academy. I enjoyed the various methods that knowledge was provided me: text, visual, lecture, classroom exercises. My understanding of the financial markets, the revelations about the techniques that professional traders and market makers have over the novice, and the key decisions that each risk manager should consider is invaluable. I only wish that I had this opportunity earlier in my financial career.”

“I feel everyone could benefit from learning about economics through these classes, whether they intend to trade or not.”

“Truly worth every penny. I have never found this level of instruction offered by others. A life changing seven days.”

“I can gladly say that I now get the picture. On my first day of class, Pro Trader class, I was totally lost, thought I was not ever going to "get the picture" and worried that the expense of the class was lost. After today's class I can see the light. I understand what this is about and am looking forward to trading. THANK YOU.”

“The care and concern for the students is truly genuine and displayed by all the Online Trading Academy staff. I am excited to see my prospects for the future and the opportunities available like I have never known them before in my trading career. This curriculum is head and shoulders above anything available!”

“The structure of this course and material covered has well exceeded my exceptions. I was hesitant at first to make the initial investment to come to Online Trading Academy. My only regret now is that I did not join sooner. No, I was not paid to write this! I will be continuing my education here for as long as possible. Thanks Online Trading Academy Staff.”

“In an ever difficult economy it's hard to believe that this program actually provides a light at the end of our financial tunnels. Sit down, keep an open mind, take control of your life.”

“What I liked best: The professionalism of the instructor and Online Trading Academy as a whole. The manuals include a large amount of information I can go to in the future.”

“Being greeted with courtesy and genuine smiles is a terrific way to start one's day. Online Trading Academy staff has a corner on this market.”
