What Our Students Are Saying
“If you want to trade you must take Online Trading Academy classes. They prepare as if you were preparing for a PHD. Online Trading Academy Chicago - awesome, everyone very friendly and a real sense of community.”
“I began my courses at Online Trading Academy just two months ago with no experience whatsoever in buying or selling stocks. Initially, the amount of information to learn can feel overwhelming. The way the materials are laid out and the methodical process in which it is presented is extremely helpful in the learning process. The necessary foundational material is reviewed in a way that helps it to stick in order to move on to the next part of the process. The online recorded XLT classes are a tremendous help in preparation for coming to a course and for review. I came away from the Futures course with a huge move in my confidence level that I can do this. This is based on several factors; 1. I have been working hard at learning the materials and it all came together in this course, 2. The online trading experience in the class included trades that the instructor set up and led us through and then time to set up trades on our own. The instructor came around and helped us think through our trades and it was extremely helpful. 3. I was able to experience several successful trades that I set up on my own.”
