Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In the Professional Trader course, you’ll learn a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This core strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. Professional Trader focuses on stock trading, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Part 1 (2 days) and Part 2 (5 days); most students take them together but you can complete the two sections separately for convenience. Each day’s agenda contains 2-3 powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with 1-2 live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

“I really like the way to course is set up, and the repetition of material is very helpful. The curriculum books are very well written and illustrated with very nice charts and definitions. I also like the way the course walks you through the simple concepts, building on those to the more complex as we gain understanding.”

“I am learning about Forex and have shown an immediate change in my trading quality after just the Professional Trader Course. I am looking forward to getting more in depth with my specialty course.”

“This class was a real eye opener. Having done well in the past with my investing, I now have the tools needed to better plan trades so that I am taking the 'gamble' out of the selection process in my retirement accounts. The live trading sessions were powerful in showing that the techniques learned in class work just as explained. Having the instructor (Steve Bobbitt) and OTA staff assist in the live and practice trading sessions helped answer the questions as they came up. I look forward to my other upcoming classes.”

“Knowledge is everything. It ignites one's dreams. The knowledge that I am gaining as this first course ends is of unequaled value.”
