“The Professional Trader Part 2 class has provided me with an understanding of trading that I have never experienced before... and I have been trading for 20 years! Scott McCormick is an outstanding Instructor. I now have the knowledge to create a more successful Trading Plan. Thank you, OTA!”

“OTA - Dallas has a nice office and they keep it very clean with great equipment and learning tools. The staff are professional, knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to answering questions to best satisfy your trading goals.”

“Everyone at OTA was always ready to assist me any way they could. The professional courtesy of the staff was wonderful. Also, it was a wonderful educational operation with the latest equipment and, in all, a wonderful facility.”

“I have been with Online Trading Academy for a little over a year. After going through the introductory classes and talking with Sean Manning for a few days, I could see the immense value of becoming a part of the OTA family. With no reservations I joined at the MasterMind level. Since then I have gained invaluable Knowledge and Discipline to launch my trading career and the confidence to surpass the goals I have set!!”

“I did not think I was going to get so much information of such great value in so little time from two individuals that appear to be so ordinary. These people Know their business to the utmost degree. They were not once challenged by a question from a student. Everyone I conferred with was an absolute professional. I recommend this academy to anyone without reservation.”

“One thing I took out of this class, besides the incredible information and knowledge we were given, is to see how much the instructor and the whole staff care that we succeed and kept reminding us on the resources available to us.”

“The Trading Academy is truly a place where a person can excel in learning how to trade the markets and make a living at it. It's not a quick turnaround, but anything that is worthwhile takes time, study and persistence. The training, knowledge and support are all there at the Academy. I am very happy to have become a student and plan on taking every course they offer. There is no doubt that I will be a very successful trader in the markets.”

“I am diving into the homework of learning and familiarizing myself in the terminology, navigation, and techniques of OTA. While I am eager to move through the training, I am finding it more important to move at a pace that ensures my understanding and comfort are at a high level to be prepared and ready to buy or sell in a trade. For me this is key, because I am a risk taker and this provides the right balance. OTA saw this from the start with me, so when they say they want their training to be a fit for both them and the student, they aren't kidding. If you listen and have discipline, then you will learn; and I see they truly care about my success.”

“Despite being at the ripe age of seventeen, this program has proven to be insightful, informative, and inordinately incredible. Regardless of your age or status, the Online Trading Academy is the place to be.”

“ The material presented is outstanding and was presented very well and professionally. The staff at OTA is very nice and supportive. I now feel like I have the tools to trade with confidence toward a goal of greater reward with less risk. Thank you OTA staff, and particularly Brock for his great teaching and patience.”

“Online Trading Academy is intentionally transparent in their teaching methods. Great instructors who teach in an integral manner the absolute best method of investing in the markets. OTA Frisco is a beautiful facility. It's brand new! I can see the intentional design of the facility. It is a joy to arrive at it.”

“The education provided by OTA is more than I ever anticipated! The instructors who lead the classes are not just teachers, but are successful traders in their own right and have the practical depth of knowledge of how market systems work. The ongoing assistance offered by the staff is an essential part of the education to ensure student success. How awesome is that? They offer actual classroom time, which is a great way to practice the technicalities of the trading platform and strategies that OTA teaches. They also offer self-paced, online instruction which students can watch at home anytime as many times as they want. Good job! I like the new OTA Dallas home a lot. No glare on the whiteboards, good computers, and plenty of tables and chairs for lunches. Parking is convenient and the place is spanking new and sparkling clean. I feel very comfortable with all the personnel and appreciate their helpfulness very, very much. Thanks, OTA!”

“I learned a lot from the class and I am looking forward to trading in the near future. Very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff and instructors. ”

“Online Trading Academy has been a huge blessing. The people, the support, the knowledge, the training is awesome. There is a lot to learn but OTA makes it easy.”

“This is an excellent training for people wanting to learn the most effective (lowest risk/highest potential profits) way to trade all aspects of the market.”

“The supply and demand, rules based concept of trading takes all the guess work out. It moves it from the realm of speculation to producing concrete positive results. We are so excited to have found OTA.”

“The program is not cheap obviously, but what is more obvious is the commitment to making sure that your money is well spent. The program is revolving and changing and each change there is more benefit realized. Never have I started with so little and finished with so much.”

“I traded futures in the past and initially had excellent results. I traded with profits. My success was over 100% returns in six months of active trading .. Two months later I found my account balance was only 5% profits then zero profits. I wasted eight months of my time and way too much stress. OTA has made me realize I needed a plan like any other business. Manage risk and use stops!”

“I am impressed by the organization of OTA and the resources available to the students. It is also obvious that the priority of instructors and staff is to help the students to be successful. OTA is a winner!”

“There's no other place this can be acquired. It's worth a college degree to spend this time in active learning with a progressive architecture of learning. The instructor is a true professional and the content is digestible, progressive and exciting. I couldn't get enough and watching it all come together was amazing.”

“The OTA education programs are invaluable. The ability to Retake classes is one of the outstanding benefits of OTA, in addition to the quality of instruction. Having taken several retakes of classes in different asset classes I find that each retake brings an additional level of understanding and new understanding with each class. Awesome quality of time spent!!!”

“We become more impressed with OTA with each successive experience. The instructors, the support staff and the facilities are all first class. The instructors are all not only knowledgeable, but are sincerely concerned about our progression and ultimate success as traders.”

“OTA provides an outstanding program to help anyone looking for personal financial independence to secure their retirements and invest in markets swings. Their educational resources are seemingly limitless and provide a number of different presentations on the same subject to give the student multiple viewpoints of the many topics associated with successful market trading. OTA's strategic approach is perfectly suited for anyone looking to taking advantage of broad market turns during drastic uptrends and the inevitable downtrends. I look forward to attending many more of their varied and diverse courses in the pursuit of my personal finances.”

“I wasn't sure if it would work. My husband was skeptical also. I gave it a chance and I am SO GLAD I did it. Totally worth every cent.”

“Now, I never think about filling the time in my retirement after discovering this new, stimulating and often challenging new profession of "trading" for gainful fun.”

“This takes a lot of practice, but it can be done and it works! OTA provides the tools and continuous support to make it happen.”

“The instructors at OTA are all professional and helpful to any students that wanted to trade proactively.”

“This course (and program as a whole) has been a real eye opener relative to what trading in the markets is all about. The instructors have obviously "been there, done that" which gives them tremendous credibility. This is the most intense and thorough training regimen on trading I've seen bar none. The plan is consistent across trading classes and the plan is simple - follow the recipe and the plan will work. Larry Hoke”

“I enjoy the overall instructions that I receive from OTA and the ongoing learning experience that I receive because of the commitment that OTA has made to their students. Each time I attend I become a much better trader. Thanks OTA.”

“OTA has provided a great learning system that is well worth the cost to benefit ratio. I find that having my wife, son and daughter all trained at OTA is a real blessing as we become more and more financially independent.”

“OTA provides an unmatched value for money in the financial education field. The ability to retake the classes is the most important differentiator and provides OTA students with a lifetime of learning in the most dynamic set of markets in the world.”

“As a retired individual that wanted to increase discretionary income, I have found that the Professional Trader course, and working with Futures even before taking the Futures course, is definitely providing me the opportunity to reach my desired result. Material is well presented and use of internet access enhances opportunities to expand knowledge and refresh course material.”

“What stands out most is that the concepts are complicated enough that I can see why everyone isn't doing it, but simple enough that they are able to be taught to anyone willing to learn and disciplined enough to consistently follow.”

“Everybody there is awesome. Melinda does a great job taking care of everyone, especially getting us lunch so we don't have to leave and wander around. Always something good. Brock has a no nonsense approach and keeps it simple too. Even explains to us the mistakes he made early on in his trading. I still have a lot to learn, hardest part is just getting there.”

“I have taken courses before on stock trading, but the Online Trading Academy is unlike any other I have seen. All their teachers are very knowledgeable and go above and beyond to help students learn their core strategy. They also all trade using this same strategy. I am completely satisfied with the whole experience. Thanks.”

“If you truly want to be a successful trader, OTA provides invaluable instruction and strategy to help you do exactly that. ”

“OTA instructors are truly outstanding and their knowledge of the market/material truly shows. All of this has helped me to become a more effective trader.”

“Online Trading Academy is dedicated to the success of their student community in every aspect of trading.”

“Best school to give you an education of the markets.”

“A Great business to be in and this is the right vehicle to get you started. OTA will get you there.”

“The OTA facility is nice and always clean. The breakfast and lunch are always great. The staff is helpful and friendly. I love coming here. Thank you!”

“Scot's friendly demeanor and straight forward, easy-to-follow teaching methodology combined with his patience and heartfelt rapport with the students made this class a true joy to attend. OTA delivers a powerful and effective learning experience through the world-class expertise of their Instructors. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that wants to take control of their financial future.”

“I started trading early this year, 2014. With the training I have received at Online Trading Academy, I am confident that I can meet my financial goals of a comfortable retirement and still be able to provide financial help to my children and grandchildren in getting their educations and lives started.”

“This is the first and only trading education company that truly has delivered to my expectations. I needed a comprehensive education, from start to finish, and OTA delivered. I tell all my friends about OTA and highly recommend it to them. For their sakes, I truly hope they listened and will make use of OTA's services.”

“OTA is a fantastic place for beginners to learn trading from Professionals who care about your success. Great experience and comfortable learning environment! I have enjoyed success in trading after only a couple months and look forward to taking more classes.”

“There is no better value in the financial education market than Online Trading Academy. The ongoing availability of resources for students is without peer.”

“Learning was made easy by all of the staff, and the emphasis on returning when needed for additional help is something I will take advantage of. All schools of learning do not want you to return for tune-ups, much less for as many returns as it takes. Brock made himself available whenever we may need help in the future. This has made my experience here seem like Online Trading Academy wants me to be a member of their family for as long as I need them. They are concerned about my future.”

“Online Trading Academy has been great since my first class in April 2012. The classes and instructors have trained me to be an effective trader and investor of my own monies. It has been a unique experience that I have been involved with in all my training.”

“Every time I take a class I learn so much more than I knew before. I feel armed with a lot of material I can go home and use. ”

“The entire staff made the experience very comfortable, friendly and enjoyable. It was well planned other than maybe having an assistant help during trading to answer questions.”

“This course taught me the principles of trading the Online Trading Academy way. It was fun, but at the same time we learned. Overall, an excellent experience.”

“This is a great class. Instructor is an experienced and active trader who is eager to share his knowledge and experience and is well able to teach a great class. Facility has everything we need to learn to be professional traders. Very professional and friendly environment. ”

“I tell anyone who asks that Online Trading Academy is the best value for the money of any company in the financial education arena. The totality of the resources is unmatched.”

“The Online Trading Academy curriculum has been developed over a number of years and is obviously very developed and rich. The instructors have a deep and practical experience in the course material. If you want to be prepared for the markets and save painful trial-and-error learning, take this course!”

“This is my fourth retake of the Options course. This feature of unlimited retakes at Online Trading Academy is quite valuable, for I always pick up a few new important techniques and facts every time I do a retake.”

“Taking this course is like saving a fortune by not making bad decisions in the market and losing a fortune. The knowledge to learn here is, if you lose little. No webinar or other institute explains this so specifically and clearly. This lesson will stay with me the rest of my life.”

“Volume of information was exceptional.”

“Online Trading Academy is a great place to learn to trade.”

“Outstanding schooling for the dollars spent.”

“Online Trading Academy provides an absolutely intense week of learning and trading immersion that is exhausting, but so worth it. I came in completely new at everything and I will be walking out with a great foundation for my future financial endeavors. This class turned out to be so much more than I expected. I feel very privileged for the opportunity I have had to learn how to trade at such a young age and plan to use the resources Online Trading Academy provides throughout my life. ”

“This was an invaluable experience with real live trading. No one should try to trade without some guidance during the first live trading tried. The instructors are very experienced and are great guides.”

“I've just recently retired from a very demanding job. Although I've always enjoyed trading and investing, my schedule only allowed me to take one course per year. Since my first course (Pro Trader in 2010), the whole technical matter has changed for the better. The concepts of continuous drilling on the "fundamentals" of Supply and Demand you will not see elsewhere. I didn't have them in 2010. I fully believe - after seeing it work this week - this is what I MUST MASTER- to make the needle move on my trading ability. I have the time to practice now - so I'm excited to get going. Thanks Irfan and Online Trading Academy Team!”

It was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience and I am looking forward to applying the methods I learned in the markets.”

“I have been self directing my investments since 2009, after taking it away from an investment firm. I have been picking up whatever investing information I could since then. I have learned more about the stock market with this course and Part 1, but more importantly how much more I need to learn. I am so happy I have joined Online Trading Academy.”

“The Online Trading Academy courses put the tools you need to be a successful trader in your hands, all you have to do is be present and pay attention.”
