“I appreciated being in a small group. The presentation was paced well and the presenter (Ben) went over anything that might be complex to understand first time round. We were given examples of good and not so good trading plans.”

“The Planning Class was excellent. It helped me to start thinking about and planning in my mind how I want to begin my new trading plan and where to input it in my day. Also, the class explained the different kinds of trading that I want to implement. This is my first time in this arena of trading and all of the instructors have made this process very easy to understand.”

“After doing the one day course I realized the importance of preparing a proper Trading Plan to assist me in becoming a successful trader. I had no previous knowledge of Forex before doing the course with Online Trading Academy, and now I can see a Trading Plan can help me to be more organised and disciplined in managing my trades and add structure to my learning. My instructor for this course was Ben Price and I could see he was very knowledgeable and had put a lot of thought in the way he was teaching the subject. We were all asked to commit to preparing our own Personal Trading Plan and submitting our plans to Ben on the dates that we have given to him. When Ben checks my plan he will be able to point out things I have missed out and put right my mistakes. If I stick to the agreement, then I have something to aim for, and this is what the course is all about, produce your own trading plan and stick to the plan which I know will help me to be a better trader.”
