ProActive Investor Course

Students are learning how to invest money with courses from Online Trading Academy.

ProActive Investor (5 Days):

Online Course also available in ten 3-hour sessions.


To enroll in courses, you must first take a FREE Half-Day Class.

The ProActive Investor knows the steps required to achieve financial security and live the life they desire—today, tomorrow, and during retirement. The key is understanding the annual rate of return required to achieve your goals, and how to achieve that rate through disciplined investing across multiple asset classes. This is what separates the ProActive Investor from the uneducated investor.

In our five-day immersion class, you’ll learn how to think and invest like a professional money manager as you build a rules-based strategy to increase your wealth and real buying power in a global economy. You’ll define your financial goals, analyze the investing choices available to you, and then start creating a portfolio of assets that minimizes risks and enhances returns. In addition, you’ll review the essentials of managing a 401(k) plan dynamically.

The course includes many interactive scenarios and exercises to reinforce what you're learning — how to hedge against inflation, benefit from currency fluctuations, and grow and preserve capital in good markets and bad. Diversify beyond familiar stocks and funds, plus be willing to rebalance your portfolio as conditions change. You'll leave the class with a self-built portfolio strategy that is based on your investing timeframe, risk tolerance, skills and goals.

Suggested prerequisites: Professional Trader Part 1 and Professional Trader Part 2 are highly recommended, Professional Options Trader is recommended.

“I am a novice in the world of managing my own money. After this class I feel the most comfortable taking my IRA away from the broker managing it and doing it myself. Even not doing so, I would feel more at ease knowing exactly what is going on with my assets. Prior to this class I would have never dreamed of attempting to do it myself. Great class and Russ was an awesome instructor!”

“Another great learning experience. The prep work on the MYOTA website, homework and XLTs were great preparation for the course. The other students were extremely helpful which made it a fantastic learning environment. My understanding of the PAI has given me the confidence to invest in another revenue stream I didn't think I was able to do. OTA makes learning investing easy so anyone can apply the techniques taught by OTA.”
