Technical Analysis Strategies (2 Days):

Online Course also available in four 3-hour sessions.


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

To learn the future, study the past. That’s the simple idea behind the complex subject of technical analysis. Its practitioners, often called “chartists”, use mathematical formulas and visualizations on a price chart to study the performance of a given asset over time, then make buy or sell decisions based on history repeating itself. There are many technical analysis tools available which can be used on their own, in combination or as confirmation for our supply and demand trading strategy.

This course is designed for Individual Stock, ETFs and Index Futures traders to analyze the market's trends and behaviors in order to classify, distinguish and properly time their trades. You'll learn to determine the market’s overall direction and then take a position that is harmonious with the market. The curriculum will be focused around pure price-based technical analysis using the major indices as the forecasting instruments.

Suggested prerequisites: Any on-location course in stocks, options, futures or Forex.

What Students Are Saying

“Just finished pro trader class and our instructor, Stephen Hanahoe, was incredible. The program we did was presented in a way that had us all thinking and kept us all thinking and on our feet. A most excellent class. Thank You Stephen and OTA staff.”

“The course and content was excellent. The pace was good for the novice and the experienced to stay engaged. I loved the way the lecture portion was heavy upfront and tapered off as the week went on to the point where we were practically independent by the end of the week. The instructor was there for assistance when needed and worked with the students at their particular pace.”

“This has been a great week. Coming into the class I had very little interest and understanding of the stock market. I thought that it was too risky and wasn't worth spending my hard earned dollars taking chances at whether a company's stock prices would move in the direction that I wanted it to. With the principles and strategies that I've learned over the past week with OTA, I feel confident and those fears have been removed with the probabilities of my losses being minimized and measured. I've also made new friendships that could potentially last a lifetime during this week. All in all, it has been great. I look forward to learning more in our next class on Futures.”

“The true test of value in this class is the headache I had every night. I have formed new brain cells called Pro Trader. I am amazed by the amount of information I was able to retain from one day to the next. Our instructor, Scot Stokes, really made the information manageable. YOU CAN teach old dogs new tricks!!! This facility provides everything needed to devote your full attention to the material and your future success in trading.”

“This course is absolutely amazing. I cannot believe people actually trade with their real money without the knowledge needed to minimize their risk and maximize their profit. This course teaches you just that - and you can take it for life! I've taken this course 6 or 7 times by now just for review, and each time I learn something new.”
