Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Professional Trader courses, you will learn strategies that can make you a better stock trader. We will teach you 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. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

  • Charting and Technical Analysis

    Learn how to recognize an imbalance of supply and demand on a price chart in order to plan your entry and exit points. Identify which technical indicators are valuable odds-enhancers, and which can be safely ignored.

What Students Are Saying

“Took 1/2 day class and realized I knew very little about trading. It took me several weeks to decide to take the 7 day class. What a big mistake I did waiting so long to take it!! AMAZING EDUCATION!!!!”

“The Professional Trading course is a great introduction into the methodology of demand/supply trading. One of the things that I appreciated most was the clarification that trading isn't perfect and you will not win all of your trades. Understanding that you only need 30% winning trades and you can still make money was not a concept I was familiar with. I was looking to become a better trader, with better meaning that I won most trades by being better. The emphasis on risk management clarified a lot of issues and adjusted my mental impression of trading for wealth and income.”

“This session is what I needed to kick-start my live trading. I now have the knowledge and confidence to trade in a live environment, starting small, but placing larger trades as I gain more experience.”

“The Pro Trader class was my first class at OTA and it covered the foundations of trading extremely well. Each day built on itself and after examples were given, you were then asked to practice the new lesson. Each day was fun, frustrating, exhilarating and challenging. I know that this is only the beginning. I can re-take this class online or in-person and I can take other online classes from experts in the field that will support me. I look forward to future classes.”

“I highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to understand the logic, terms, and ideas of trading and making money. This class teaches you ideas to be successful in trading, while helping you understand the risks. Risk management was a very insightful learning experience.”

“It is like WWOOWW; like entering a new world, a new life! How many mistakes (and losses) I could have avoided / mitigated if I knew something about that earlier in my life.”
