This allows the trained Forex trader to apply our simple, rules-based strategy to identify ideal entry and exit points even without access to underlying market research.
Each day’s agenda contains two to three powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with one to two live trading sessions
focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

What Students Are Saying
“Louise Carr is an awesome instructor. She's knowledgeable, patient, helpful and explains things very well. Attending her Forex class has helped me understand time frames much better. Ben has also been a fantastic teacher. His sessions on trade set-ups have helped clear up my confusion about wiggles, spread & ATR. The OTA online XLT and student resources and support means that I am not alone in my trading journey.”
“I would recommend this course to anyone who was interested in learning how to trade Forex. Excellent course and excellent value for money. Absolutely essential in my view. To quote an old phrase, 'If you think education is expensive, try ignorance!'”
“Come last day of the course, I can't believe how true the statements made in regards to supply and demand zones are, and how they become so easy to spot as long as I follow the rules provided. Excellent course, Excellent teacher and Excellent teaching method/system.”
“I enjoyed the classes (Forex) a lot. My classmates and the OTA staff are all lovely people, and Louise Carr is an amazing educator. She has a great way of making everyone in the class understand what she is talking about, regardless of the level of knowledge they have. She is apparently also very interested in the topic of finance and economics so she can give you some very interesting, behind the scenes information about the world economy, politics and "how the world really works", which I personally loved. I love the amount of further online study materials OTA gives to their students too. Even after the on-site classes are done, you feel like you have loads to lean on if you have any further questions. Hope I'll have opportunity to reunite with the class and Louise again. Thanks for everything.”
“The course is well resourced with excellent instructors and materials; and when you have access to them, there are good teaching and learning materials for every level of knowledge and skill (the teaching learning materials consider learners with all kinds of learning styles-visual, reading, charts, quizzes, etc.)”
“The Forex process was extremely well explained and the core ideas start to penetrate by Wednesday. I do not think that there is anything for me that was not addressed. To emphasize, having completed the course I feel able to sensibly tackle FXCM's demo account with prospect of success on balance and hopefully shortly thereafter, with a live account.”
