But after having gone through the rigour of 7 days and under the guidance of experienced instructor, Mr Ajit Mahuli, I am more than satisfied. Full marks to the instructor for having gone beyond the course contents and shared his personal experiences at relevant points in time. Infrastructure, administrative support, catering & hospitality were very good.”

“On searching on Sharekhan website, I came to know about Online Trading Academy.

The way of presentation about each aspect about trading is very nice and utmost at the satisfaction of each student. I am definitely sure about my success in Trading field after getting course from Online Trading Academy. Thanks to Academy team.”

“Very good faculty. Answering all questions patiently. Good.”

“The centre is very well maintained. Cleanliness 10/10. Very polite staff including the EC, the non-teaching staff, the reception staff and the pantry staff. Well trained and well mannered. Parking available but outside the mall. It's OK, not a big issue. Everything is good about this academy; presentation slides, course content, course manuals and support materials are very illustrative and good to understand.”

“OTA is a platform where you become a professional trader. I found the experience overall quite exciting as I am able to trade now on demand and supply. And looking forward to do it from now onward. Furthermore, I would like to go for XLT in future. I am overwhelmed to have an instructor like Mr. Vishal Subandh. His attributes enthralled me. Thank you so much.”

“OTA has conducted a course very well. The instructor boost our confidence level and now I feel that with supply and demand zones I will do better in stock market and will gain a desired profit. It's good and enjoyed the atmosphere in class as well as in Academy. The Staff is also very cooperative. Done lots of equity market practice and boost our confidence. Very Nice and clean premises, staff is very friendly. Instructor, Mr. Vishal, conducted the classes in absolutely wonderful manner. In all, enjoyed the Training week.”

“I am very happy with the instructors and Online Trading Academy. I recommend that anyone who wants to do stock trading must join Online Trading Academy. Now I am a confident trader.”

“This OTA's 7 day basic trading program is something that every person who has passion for trading or wants to pursue trading as a serious profession should go through. I believe, the concepts taught in here are really basic to all types of trading assets. Also, whether you want to trade for short term or invest for long term, this is helpful in all the cases.”


“I am very much thankful to Sharekhan for the Ignite course and now to OTA for the XLT programme. I found this concept of demand and supply the most powerful and realistic over other concepts in the market.”

“Excellent program which will derail you from your existing view of the markets. Have been trying to understand the markets to predict movements. The course has changed my thought process to understand how a trader looks at things.”

“I used to be a trader...and in OTA terms a Novice trader. I used to watch news, follow punter calls and various means to trade but failed every time. I accidentally happen to see the OTA flashing on one of the browsers while I was on my PC; don't ask me why but I pressed the call button for the half day seminar. Maybe it was my inner craving to learn the art of making money from trading as I happen to see many do make a good chunk. After attending the half day class I got myself enrolled to the pro-trading course, and I would like to say that it was a big bright flash light inside the dark tunnel. It was so clear and things started to drill into my head "that this is how I need to trade". I would like to thank the complete OTA team for their help and support, they are all great people and you can seek help anytime from them. OTA guys and gals great job. I am also enrolling myself to more courses by OTA. It is a big pound of intense knowledge and "that is the wealth which will make more wealth".”

“A simple but highly effective way to trade and analyze the markets. It helps to get rid of all the market noise and zero down on identifying high probability trades. Doing this course was an eye-opener for me and I recommend it to anyone who wants to adopt a simple and methodical approach to trading. The instructors were excellent, and since they are traders they gave practical insights instead of fancy theories.”

“Ajit was very professional in the class. He had thorough knowledge of the subject and did his best to explain the topics and content to the students. I am thoroughly impressed with his knowledge and experience and his passion to share it with fellow traders. I have been associated with OTA since two years. As days pass with the learning that I have from the classes, from XLT and from interactions with the mentors, I feel I am getting better and better at my trades. The depth of knowledge demonstrated by all the mentors and training faculty is amazing. Though each one of them have a different style and strength, overall, I feel that OTA has the best of the faculty and OTA takes utmost care to ensure that all the students succeed in their mission to become a successful trader. I am happy to have joined OTA and the investments I have made in my education with OTA.”

“The class atmosphere and the teaching techniques used were unique. The instructors are well trained as they are professional traders themselves. The institute is worthy of getting educated from.”

“This is a life changing experience. This programme of OTA's has changed the perception of gambling and uncertainty to knowledge based action. Uncertainty in the markets do exist but now we can plan our move accordingly.”

“Online Trading Academy is an education center where a newcomer who has no knowledge of the stock market is taught how to enter and trade like the professional trader in an ethical way, provided the student complies with all the rules as stated by his instructors during his tenure of learning. All the instructors are polite and highly experienced and helpful.”

“OTA has a tradition of delivering thorough and high class knowledge. I found OTA curriculum/strategies based on strong technical support. I always observe OTA instructors as SMEs in their respective subject and I appreciate them for sharing their knowledge and expertise.”

“Online Trading Academy is a great school to start your trading career. It grounds you in the basics with written and tutored instruction. Small class sizes help each student get individual attention. It is worth the price of the course.”

“OTA provides base to your Trading Career. It has cleared my concepts. Anxiety has completely gone. And I view share trading as a means of investment opportunity rather than money eating monster...”

“I had done IGNITE and thereafter I joined OTA's Total Solutions Course after a period of one and a half year's time span, wherein I had been well armed and well informed on the stock market. I had been so delighted to learn the course from the academy. I am very much thankful to the academy to part with me the knowledge on the stock market.”

“I have done the professional trader course in August. It was a great experience which I got from this course. The instructor was very much knowledgeable and patient in teaching. OTA's core strategy is pretty cool and seems it will work for me. Live exposure to the market was given. I was glad to be a part of OTA as a student. This will be my lifelong learning. Thank you so much.”

“This course has changed my fear of markets. Earlier I thought this activity was gambling!! Now I realise that the OTA core strategy is a methodical approach to tackling these markets. Coupled with the mentoring they provide, I strongly recommend this program to anyone who wants to be involved with the stock or derivative markets. Vishal is a BIG asset to your course. He is up to date with ground realty and problems faced. Thus he connects instantly with students. Many finer & hidden aspects not covered in the books are also discussed, along with live examples make the students realise the depth & spread of this subject - making them respect this subject & your Core strategy . Best wishes to all of you, Keep it up!!”

“It is a course with a practical approach. Instructor, IT Team, platform, material; every thing is perfect and highly appreciable.”

“OTA has a world class faculty and amazing course structure. Even after the course is complete XLT provides lifelong support. ”

“Great learning experience.... the atmosphere was very conducive for friendly learning and the interactive sessions in the class, quite informative. The instructors (Kapil and Rahul) plus my EC - Hiral were absolute delights in terms of approach and problem solving. I actually feel I have upgraded my skills of forecasting the equity markets with the strategies as taught in the class. It has brought in greater levels of confidence, feeling of security when I consider using these practices to protect my hard earned money.”

“In the past, I have gotten crushed in this fight of Bulls vs. the bear for so long that more than money I had lost confidence and worth of being successful. This program... Oh boy!!! An eye opener! An enlightenment! The strategy is powerful and gives you the tools to put yourself in a far better position. The right thinking of decision making is what they imbibe you with the most. I already know that I am going to be successful.”

“Programme is designed very perfectly. Useful for beginners as well as professionals. Every query is attended & solved till satisfied. Very trained, knowledgeable & nice instructor I came across.”

“I had been trading for a couple of months and I had no clue about my trades. I was using some fundamental and technical analysis but it did not work very well for me. After OTA I am really happy learning how to actually trade in the stock market and would love to take the advance courses too.”

“Until I attended the OTA classes, I had never realised nor appreciated that trading could be so scientific and complex to a fresher and yet could be made so simple. The subject is quite intimidating, but loved the way the instructor instilled confidence in our abilities and his repeated adivice of keeping emotions in check that are usually the bane of the trade. I'm still miles away from being a good trader, but OTA has enabled me to overcome my fears and emotions, which I believe is a step away from being a good trader.”

“I have never had anything to do with the stock/financial markets. When I decided to get into the financial markets, I decided to get myself educated first before I do anything. I discovered OTA and took up the Professional Trader Course. The whole concept and methodology was an eye opener. It has given me the necessary tools and methodology to get into the financial markets. This is definitely a scientific approach. Thank you OTA for helping me learn. I believe you will hold my hands till I become a successful trader. All the best in your fantastic work of Educating Novices and making them professional.”

“I joined OTA based on a recommendation from my brother-in-law. I did this since I was not comfortable investing, without knowing what I am doing. Training at OTA has given me a vision as to what I can do and how I can make my money work for me. OTA cautioned me on the risks to be taken and has given me the skills I need to trade. The opportunity OTA has given to retake courses is beneficial as I know when I get back home and start trading in case of any difficulty I can always retake the class. This way OTA has not only given me skills but also built a long term relationship with me. Above all the Instructor Surjeet was very patient & answered ALL questions even if they were repeated. He took care of each student ensuring everyone understood the concepts at each step before proceeding.”

“Online Trading Academy fills the gap between a novice and a professional. At OTA we learn how to do Professional Trading with Very Simple Strategy.”

“If you are serious about becoming consistently profitable trading, this is the place. They are like Sachin for your batting coach.”

“I was a novice in trading. I had undertaken the Portfolio Management Services of three topmost broking firms in India. However, their performance was not satisfactory. The returns were lesser than bank returns and one of the firms even eroded some of my capital. After taking Voluntary Retirement, I decided to handle my investments myself. Before doing that I felt that I should have the requisite knowledge and skills for trading. The Professional Trader Course fit into my requirements and, by the end of the course, I am quite confident that I can handle my investments myself.”

“Everyone in Online Trading Academy took efforts to provide a helpful and friendly environment while training. What I like most about this course is, it takes a complicated subject like trading in the stock market, makes it simple to a level where anyone can understand it and then present it to the students. I will definitely recommend this course to my friends and family.”

“Online Trading Academy is best in its class. Easy to understand big picture of share market and how we can earn huge money in life. Thanks.”

“I really loved what you guys taught during the course. Vishal Subhand was an excellent instructor during my first class and Surjeet Kakkar just took it one notch upwards for me. I am on the correct path on my education and enhancement of skills to being a successful trader. Rules based Trading has made my life so much easier by helping me reduce my risk and ensure a higher profit. Thank you Online Trading Academy.”

“Whoever wants to be a professional trader, be it as a primary or secondary source of income must enroll at OTA. The Sharekhan platform is also superb.”

“Before joining OTA, I had absolutely no knowledge whatsoever about the share market, and that scared me. But after leaving OTA, I now feel much more confident since I have found proper strategies to help me buy and sell. I now look forward to trading.”

“It was a very satisfying learning experience in a perfect environment. The core strategy is perfect and the instructors are extremely good with a very helpful attitude and a deep knowledge of the subject matter. I have gained a lot from the Online Trading Academy. ”

“To say matter of fact I did not enjoy the program, actually seven days is to short a period and with so many analyses being bombarded into your head, on the fourth day I was confused, but slowly when I started understanding I am more enthusiastic and am looking forward to more retakes and even go for XLT.”


“I am honored to be a part of OTA community and would sincerely want to appreciate the dedication put by the institute for enlighting us. Our professor, Vishal Subandh Sir, is one of the most dynamic instructors I have seen, who primarily takes a great effort in teaching us and hence makes sure we apply the core strategies and, in turn, earn money out of it. My EC, Madhu Koli Ma'am, has been very supportive and considerate. Overall it was a great experience which has helped me to have a direction in my pro trading career. Thanks.”

“OTA has provided me with a clear understanding of the markets which I could not fathom before. I would recommend their program to all who wish to learn more about the markets.”

“One of the best training institutes for future traders to become expert.”

“It's an amazing place to gain knowledge about the market. Everyone around us is very helpful and instructors are having amazing skills and knowledge and he share with us everything.”

“I am a Spanish citizen migrated to India. I was always looking for a different line of business which would relieve me from working as an employee under somebody. Last year I entered in the stock market and I was recommended to visit a session in OTA which changed my life and my life and my search. After completing this course, it has given me the confidence to enter the stock market without any discomfort. Today I am working as a free lancer and has completely changed my life. Now I get more time to be with my family, take vacations. I really appreciate the whole team of OTA for enlightening us.”

“It is rare that you can enroll in such a rewarding program. It has been a life-changing experience. I would urge anyone who wants to take control of their financial destiny and Personal Management to take this program.”

“The good thing about this programme that the instructor teaches with the pace the students required and, practices which really help to gain the confidence in live market. Now I can feel and trade confidently and with proper knowledge. Thank you OTA.”

“Before OTA I didn't even know about the types of markets like Forex, FnO's, etc. 7 Days later I'm planning my trades to become a full time trader with the knowledge and confidence I gained through this class. Thank You, OTA.”

“It's nice to be part of Online Trading Academy, unlearning and learning to become a Professional Trader.

“In a single word, just "Awesome." The course is designed very much scientifically which helped me to come out from my earlier errors that I used to make in my trading with conventional TA knowledge. The course helped me to know better the price action before it happens. Hats off, OTA and, obviously, Hitesh sir.”

“I recommend OTA to every person who wants to get a first-hand knowledge of trading. I was almost a new comer to trading, and on completing the course I now have the confidence of trading on my own and hope to make it my primary source of income.

What was lacking was the practical understanding of these concepts that I have learnt in my curriculum. I joined OTA with the objective of learning what was lacking in me.

I have completed Pro Trader, Options, commodity and Forex courses from OTA. Courses in OTA gave me the confidence and strategies to trade. These strategies are in tune with my lifestyle. You have variety of choices to suit to your liking and personal traits. It is like going to sweet shop, testing different sweets and then choosing the one which you like most! Thanks to OTA for choosing the instructors who are really, really good and who are results oriented. The financial freedom anyone is looking for, OTA is the answer; but be ready to learn, be dedicated and practice consciously with an equanimous mind!!”
