“I have been investing for 30 years with modest success. A large part of my frustration was due to a lack of knowledge and an inability to find a source of information in order to acquire that knowledge. OTA has been a tremendous help to me. The staff has been extremely helpful. ”

“The level of instruction was head-and-shoulders above any other courses I've taken. Our instructor was also one of the best I've seen. OTA Milwaukee is the place where you want to turn to for education in trading.”

“I would like everyone at Online Trading Academy to know how much I enjoyed the Professional Trader course. Everyone that I have met through OTA from the introductory seminar and the Professional Trader course have created an amazing environment to learn these new and exciting trading concepts. These concepts will allow me to "take the reins" in investing not only for my IRA account, but also create a program that I can generate a regular income. I would like to personally thank our instructor Scott McCormick for his approachable teaching style and personal insight into investing and the markets. Scott's diligence in providing us with the "Ten Steps to the Trade" will provide a framework establishing a disciplined style of profitable trading. His willingness to share both the upside of his trading experience and also some of the downsides he has weathered throughout his trading career will be pivotal in creating a successful personal investment program. I plan on implementing his strategies in my future investing. Thank you very much, Jim Clifford”

“Online Trading Academy has given me hope that financial goals and opportunities for me are endless. I really feel empowered to become a consistent and successful trader with a huge network of tools and support whenever I may need it. ”

“The manuals provided in OTA courses are like the yoga Sutras (brief, succinct, overviews of principles and practices) which require a "guru" to amplify and explain the subjects. OTA's instructors are not only excellent gurus, but also take a personal interest in every student, making sure each one progresses successfully. I've learned more techniques in this class to further my trading success than in any other course I've taken (and I've spent a lot of money on others!).”

“I didn't even know how to read candles before I entered the class, and by the end of the week we were placing orders and executing trades. Online Trading Academy methods work and stand the test of time. My instructor was a professional in the trading field and very helpful in steering us in the right direction.”

“Having recently retired, I have been fearful of deep stock market corrections causing erosion of my retirement finances. At the same time, I have wanted to maximize my opportunity for income by leveraging the money I've accumulated. Online Trading Academy gives me the tools to do both. The instructors are active trading experts with years of successful experience. They teach well tested techniques to control risk and improve probability for income and growth. The ongoing support and resources provide unlimited assistance, making it feel like I've joined a partnership rather than a school.”

“The staff is very nice and attended to all of our concerns. The instructor is excellent. I would recommend the program to anyone. It is a great program to be connected with other traders in your area.”

“Online Trading Academy is the real deal. They don't teach a magical way of making money. They teach their students how to follow a definitive process to increase the probability of making a profitable trade.”

“Starting from near absolute zero, I've been accorded a great informatiol and support base for the business of market trading through OTA. Any failure to succeed, or even mediocrity in this endeavor, will rest solely with myself.”

“I walked into OTA without any real trading experience or knowledge. After the first Pro Trader course, I understand the concepts and am really looking forward to continuing with my education with OTA. Everything they teach makes tons of sense.”

“For someone totally new to Trading, the course/Instructors brought me into the game quickly. There are so many resources, groups, training, one-on-one help available that there is no excuse not to succeed. I am convinced that if I invest my time to what is available, I will succeed.”

“I felt like I knew what I was doing already but wasn't making any money. After this class my probability of executing winning trades is now much higher.”


“The best thing about Online Trading Academy is the ability to re-take the courses so that lifetime support is always available.”

“The instructors offered at the Online Trading Center are the most knowledgeable I have ever encountered. They have incredible depth as well as great instruction techniques. Amazing!”

“Very satisfied with the learning environment. Instructor was very professional, very knowledgeable, and did a phenomenal job illustrating everything.”

“They opened my eyes to stock trading, and how I have been manipulated in the past by brokers and the media. I would recommend this program as a good investment if you want to do well with your future investments.”

“It's amazing to me that I came here on a whim after listening to the radio program, and here I am now learning from some of the best (and I mean best) traders in the country. God Bless America!!!”

“I find the courses taken at the OTA to be very informative and current, keeping me on the leading edge of trading philosophy.”

“Where else could you go and get a lifetime education on how to trade these markets? Nowhere. Online Trading Academy is the greatest thing since sliced bread!”

“Whether you want to grow and protect your present retirement account or need to jump in now and build one, trading the markets with OTA's method of analysis will help turbo charge your results. A good friend recommended it to me and I am grateful for his advice!”

“The first investment you need to make before you get into the markets is with OTA. Don't allow your pride to get in the way. This organization is excellent.”

“Truly a program that teaches how to use the various markets as income producers in a very logical, concise and disciplined manner.”

“I would highly recommend OTA as they provide an excellent education and their website is awesome. The additional XLT classes and resources like "Lessons from the Pro's" and "Hour with the Pros" are a really nice addition to the in-class teaching. Everything OTA does seems to be top notch.”


“Hi my name is Dale. This is a retake for me, NO cost retake. Talked to Rick here in Milwaukee when I saw there was an opportunity for me to come in. He made it a done deal no questions asked with no hidden agenda to get me to spend any money. It was a great learning experience. Thanks, OTA”

“There is a reason that OTA is the best in the business at teaching traders. The teaching, support and products give you everything you need to be successful as a trader. Thank you very much.”

“This was great information. I especially think that anyone that has a retirement account or substantial assets NEEDS information like this to protect what they've got.”

“Since the '80s, I have taken many investment classes and seminars which each added something to my investing skills. The Pro Trader class tied a lot of it together and gave me RULES to keep me to a disciplined strategy that increases my chances of winning and keeps me to SMALL losses.”

“Everyone here at the Milwaukee Center is always helpful in anything that is needed.”

“Staff willing to bend over backwards to make sure you become successful.”

“Thank you, Online Trading Academy, for all you have taught me. I can't wait to get into the market and put it to use. your radio show and commercials are very accurate. The systems you teach are easily understood and put into action, I see no reason why, using the tools and rules based methods I've learned here, I can't get into the markets and generate and keep some income. Thank you.”

“From early on my experience in dealing with Online Trading Academy has been excellent. The information provided in class, the instructors, the on premise staff have all been top notch. Looking forward to more classes. Have no doubt what I've learned will prove to be extremely profitable.”

“This class clearly identifies what I have been doing wrong in my previous attempts to trade. It is very likely that I would have given up on trading before ever being profitable without the help of Online Trading Academy. This is likely the best investment I have ever made. The staff here is GREAT!”

“This is the second time I've taken the Futures Trader class and I am SO happy that I did! The class is jam-packed with information, tips, and strategies that it's impossible to digest it all the first time. I came in looking to refine my skills, in hopes of doubling my somewhat mediocre results. With the reinforcement of things I heard the first time, but didn't quite follow, my simulated trading average Weds.-Fri. was up over 700%. I can't wait to get home and use these lessons with real money!”

“Everyone is friendly and helpful. This was my second time through Professional Trader, I got so much more out of it than last time. Things became more clear as the class progressed. Coming back to repeat the classes is something everyone should do because there is so much to learn to make you a better trader.”

“From my perspective, ANYONE having any interest in investing should absolutely become an Online Trading Academy student. I've never traded before, but with what the school teaches along with the follow up support available, I think it'd be hard NOT to succeed in trading. Education is not inexpensive, but here it's teaching you how to make many times back on your investment. For those that trade on their own but don't know what this course teaches, they're paying for education through losing in the markets and may not ever learn to be a good trader.”

“This is the best allocation of my time and money I have ever spent. The long term impact on my future will be enormous.”

“I've always been impressed with the quality of the instructors in all the Online Trading Academy classes I have attended in the past year.”

“The Online Trading Academy community continues to impress me and I truly feel privileged to belong to it. Larry Jacobson is an exceptional teacher.”

“The course was informative and extremely professional. The staff was helpful and approachable. The radio ad is what got me started and I thank them SO MUCH, because that ad stirred something in me and in a couple of hrs. I called to reserve a spot to listen to their sales pitch and here I am.”

“Online Trading Academy Milwaukee is a really great environment. The staff is friendly and the professionalism is outstanding.”

“Best investment I ever made! ”

“I am new to active trading. Time will tell if my inherent skill will support success in Trading. What I do know now is that Online Trading Academy has provided exceptional instruction and resources to ensure the probability of success. My first instructor, in my first (Pro Trading) course, was Michelle Volmering. She represents Online Trading Academy at its very best. First impressions lead me to be confident that my investment (entry) into the world of trading will hit the target.”


“I really enjoyed the hands-on approach taken in the class. I think that will be the most important asset for me to become a successful trader. The teacher was excellent. The ongoing support will be very beneficial to me. Thanks.”

“Everyone on the staff is very approachable. The feeling of family and caring is evident. Everyone has a totally positive attitude no matter what time of day. That alone is so helpful for us as students since our thoughts are all over the map during this process. It is great to know that we have a positive person on the other end of the phone as we leave the class.”

“If you are serious about learning how to trade online, this is the route you take. The fact that Online Trading Academy emphasizes core strategies that enhance profits and lower risk makes my experience with trading online gratifying.”

“Chris Muldoon and the staff of Milwaukee are attentive and knowledgeable. They aim to please.”

“Online Trading Academy is a great place to begin learning to trade. Makes trading entries, exits, and opportunity very clear and helps to turn the learning curve into a straight line. They offer full time staff to answer questions any time of day via XLT support, and the full time staff at the campus are very knowledgeable as well. There is too much to talk about in such a small text box.”
