Core Strategy Program Overview

There are many different strategies and approaches for speculating in the financial markets. Many books have been written and tools have been built, professing to have THE one and only answer for becoming that consistently successful trader. There isn’t just one right answer but at Online Trading Academy, we have spent decades developing and fine tuning a single strategy that has withstood the test of time. We call it…Core Strategy.

Our Core Strategy is patented and is built on the timeless principles of Supply and Demand. Trading opportunities arise when market prices move. Prices move when Supply and Demand are out of balance. Core Strategy teaches what this imbalance looks like on a price chart, and it has proven to successfully work regardless of the type of investor you are or the financial markets you trade in.

Core Strategy Benefits

Online Trading Academy’s Core Strategy offers powerful benefits to those traders and investors who gain the knowledge and master the skill of executing Core Strategy in the financial markets.

  • Purposeful — An objective rule-based strategy with the single purpose of finding low risk, highly profitable, and high probability trading and investing opportunities
  • Simple — Does not rely on multiple complex indicators and conventional technical analysis, but follows a simple, sequential set of steps that lead to and confirm quality trading and investing opportunities
  • Accessible — Conventional wisdom for buying and selling anything in life are encouraged to be completely discarded with most trading strategies. Not with OTA’s Core Strategy. The same way you think about cutting coupons, shopping for sales and understanding the dynamic of wholesale and retail, is the same way to approach trading and investing in the financial markets
  • Adaptable — The same Core Strategy principles used to invest in equity markets are the same principles used to invest in the Futures Market, the Foreign Exchange Market as well as Options trading. Regardless of the time-frame purposes you prefer to trade in, one strategy, OTA’s Core Strategy, works whether you are trading and investing for daily, weekly, monthly or longer term purposes.

Education Path Structure

At Online Trading Academy, learning how to trade and invest begins and ends with gaining the knowledge and skills contained in our Core Strategy.
