“Depending on the foundation is how big you can build. OTA gives you this never ending, strengthening foundation so you can keep building higher and higher.”

“The class, professional trader, was very informative about the true market apparatus to direct one in the correct direction and avoid the common pitfalls of the novices. My experience at the OTA center was very relaxed and much consideration was given to the students' needs which I found to be very refreshing.”

“My instructor, Stephen Hanahoe, is amazing! He explained the process in an easy to understand format and also offered wonderful insight to the world of trading. OTA gave me the vital information and dramatically changed the way I will forever trade. I am looking forward to a whole new world of opportunities! I am extremely happy about my decision to join the OTA community!”

“I think the strategies, principles and processes developed by OTA make a lot of sense. In particular, they are not really involved in attempting to predict the future of markets. Instead, they have a process that attempts to determine the basis of price fluctuations (supply and demand) and then procedures to take advantage of these forces. It makes more sense than any other strategy I've seen, and seems to work.”

“Online Trading Academy is my new home! I feel so welcomed, supported and overall happy. Happy that I have finally made a decision in my life to actually do something different to get different results that will transform my life and my future forever. I'm looking forward to seeing my vision and goals being successfully accomplished through learning and practicing the art of trading with OTA. I appreciate greatly their sincere interest in me and their passion in educating. I'm so grateful.”

“Love this trading school. I've been in the school for over a year. Instructors and everybody here are very supportive. They make you feel at home. The best thing I like about it is that you can retake the courses as often as you want (without having to pay extra.). Watching the video lessons online is also very helpful; they reinforce what you already learned in class. I highly recommend Online Trading Academy.”

“What I love about OTA is the well rounded curriculum they offer, including psychology; which I agree from what the instructor and Dr. Woody said on his presentation, that trading is almost 100% mental and psychological. At OTA they offer retake classes online and physical classes as much as the student wants until they are comfortable to trade on their own. They also have websites to submit questions to instructors and XLT lessons that support the growth of the student. I have met fellow traders to hang out with.”

“I'm glad I went to OTA, it really opened my eyes to the world of stock trading. I wish I would have done it sooner, The staff, instructors, etc... excellent. Everything is guided towards you learning and grasping the topics, always reassured that this is a community and that OTA will always be there for you. The center is awesome, very large open the views; well you have to see them yourself. AWESOME!!!! The staff is equally as awesome (I use that word a lot). Calm, clean, breakfast, lunch' you almost don't want to leave everyone as they are very personable. If you're serious, then you should seriously consider OTA.”

“Online Trading Academy is an incredible resource for people who want to learn trading. The website is filled with educational videos, and the live classes are a wonderful experience.”

“Awesome environment... very friendly and accommodating aura of learning, especially to a total stranger (beginner) like me. Thanks to the General, Evan, and classmates.”

“The program offered by OTA is very beneficial for trading beginners like me. Thanks to their very well structured programs, theory and trading practice, I can be operational and profitable very fast. This is all what I needed and wanted.”

“Online Trading Academy is the best and clearest explanation I have seen yet. They also appear to have the very best ETHICAL values system in finance. I have learned volumes in a short timeframe. I will be a lifelong member, and am advocating this school/training to family and friends.”

“OTA is the best school that teaches how to be a professional trader. The teachers know their materiel and take in consideration every detail. They also take time to explain everything clearly.”

“I am glad that I took the course. The core strategy works with a high degree of success. This experience is a life changing experience. The teachers are amazingly great and the supporting staff is excellent.”

“I came to see if I can learn about trading. When I got here I realized this was like being with family. I had a great teacher who worked with me and helped me comprehend something I knew nothing about and I left out of here with understanding the foundation of learning how to trade, and I will continue to grow with my education and new family.”

“The learning experience that was given made my confidence level improve significantly. I felt so comfortable I feel like I could start trading immediately, but I won't. I will take time to go through more and practice so that I may become a better trader.”

“Online Trading Academy has access to highly professional, knowledgeable and experienced teachers who know how to impart their knowledge very well.”

“I really enjoyed the class. The information and the style of the instructor are very informative and captures the interest. The center is very friendly, helpful, enjoyable and conducive to learning and sharing the knowledge.”

“I am grateful to have the opportunity to participate in learning a new life skill and develop understanding about the multiple asset classes and systematically profiting from these markets.”

“OTA is a fantastic school! The teachers are very knowledgeable and passionate about trading. It blows me away that I can talk to a trading pro and get my questions answered. I highly recommend Online Trading Academy to anyone who desires to learn how to be a consistently profitable trader. ”

“Everything about OTA's NYC center is official. So conveniently located just a block or two away from the train station. The administrative staff is pleasant, friendly and helpful. The instructors have all been very exciting and thorough... and quite interestingly they've all had a great sense of humor. Coffee is always fresh and lunch is always presented with a touch of class. The kitchen is very kempt even with so much traffic in and out. OTA apparently attracts people with a high sense of self-awareness or OTA simply develops it in their students.”

“I am grateful for the depth and breadth to which OTA aspires to produce top quality traders. I appreciate that we have taken a whole day to delve into personality type along with financial goals. ”

“Prior to this school, I had no knowledge of investments and the market. I can say, with just this short period I have learned so much.”

“I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in trading. This class gave me more knowledge about trading than I expected. The environment in the center is just perfect for learning. The personnel are very friendly. The center is very clean and ohhh, great food.”

“Throughout the past 10 years, I have attended many seminars in NYC regarding how to become an active trader and how to take control over my income and wealth, but none of them were convincing for me personally. OTA is the first to convince me to take the first step of becoming an active trader based on the fact that I would be an educated active trader, and not just a trading software user. I have been very skeptical about trading online because I never knew that I could get that level of educations in such short time. The price of this education is not cheap, but after just the first couple of days; I now can say it is definitely worth it.”

“This program is so magnificent that when you start your education you think are they tricking you, then you start trading and the system which OTA teaches proves itself. I can definitely say that this money is worth this program.”

“The center is spacious, clean and overall a very comfortable environment in which you have the opportunity to focus and excel as a student. The quality of instruction, the experience level of the instructor, and the excellent support of OTA staff made it a worthwhile investment! I highly recommend it!”

“Best academy with amazing instructors to guide you every step of the way and with full support to financial success for an amazing future. Online Trading Academy is the place to be!!!”

“The classes are very informational and pleasant to take. It is a good introduction to the trading industry. ”

“The truth of the markets is just in front of you, you just need to know how to read it... Thanks OTA. It is amazing to set examples in class during the week and see those examples become true at the end of the class. Mind blowing.”

“These guys don't just bait you in for you to pay for the course, they follow through and teach you the core strategies to your success. Price is high but if I didn't see the value in what they were doing I wouldn't be here. Learned a lot, they give you the tools to change your lifestyle.”

“The center is located at a very convenient location. It is very easy to access. The staff at OTA NY is extremely helpful, friendly. Each time, I am visiting this location, I feel like I am coming to see family :) Thank you!”

“I have taken the course a few times and lost money in the past; but after having a few teachers and understanding what I was doing wrong I have learnt the way I was trading and the mistakes I was doing. Now I look at the market in a whole new way. Thanks to Jeff Manson who has taken the time to change my thought proses of what I was doing wrong to what I should be doing right. I recommend anyone who is trying to build a life for themselves or family and would like to take this serious to learn from the best at Online Trading Academy. Thank you.”

“Good facility, good learning environment, world class education.”

“Learning to trade/invest and become able to manage his/her own financial matters effectively is probably a skill that everyone should learn, hopefully early in his/her life. While there are many online programs that claim to teach trading/investing, OTA is a true institution where comprehensive, professional education in those areas can be had and added as a set of very valuable life-long skills. OTA's life-long commitment to train its students is well worth the cost. ”

“I have been trading in the Forex market for the last three years. After not realizing much success, I decided that becoming better educated about my trading would help me to become a more methodical and strategic trader. This is when I began looking for a mentor and teacher. I came across several options but choosing to enroll with OTA was clearly the best choice and I have not had any regrets since. ”

“This is the real deal. World class trainers...winning techniques. After spending thousands of dollars on inferior programs I am elated and fortunate to have found OTA--a program that's both thorough and advanced in their education program. I mean how can you fail if you follow the well taught lessons properly and take advantage of the lifetime of free retakes of the classes you pay for just one time? And there's more. Just...wow. A Godsend.”

“OTA has already had a great impact in my life because it has brought the best out of me through discipline, work ethic, and passion for learning and accomplishing my goals step by step.”

“I realized the power of coming to a live classroom with an instructor and students. It really cements my reality of trading since I have no friends/acquaintances who are into trading like I am. ”

“I like the fact that all the staff is very helpful and supportive.”

“The support and encouragement I received from the staff, including students, was unbelievable. I recommend this program for anyone who is considering trading in general. It is a first rate program.”

“I feel this class is a necessity in our times. I am no longer saving money for my daughter’s college. I am saving for her OTA tuition. I like the fact that we buy the courses and recourses for life. Our system is designed for us to manage our money well. If we don't we will struggle our whole life.”

“Online Trading Academy is the place where the teaching level is as great as their trading level. Besides the concept of supply and demand zones specific to Online Trading Academy, every teacher shares their own experience. You want to be here every day. Thanks.”

“Since my time here I have more profitable trades than losses, and gradually improving more and more. Love to learn more from other instructors.”

“I learned so much about myself as a trader. This class really gave me the confidence that I need. Now I KNOW that I can be SUCCESSFUL at trading. When I followed the Online Trading Academy system I made money, not when I tried to deviate from the system, so now I know to JUST FOLLOW THE SYSTEM.”

“I have taken many courses from different schools, but this was beyond fun. This is way better than college or trade schools because the main focus is making money now and for the rest of your trading Career. This is not Theory; these Instructors are great and the courses are based on a PROVEN-UNDENIABLE-SUCCEsSFUL-STRATEGY. You can take that to the bank!”

“Having worked on the Administration side of Investment Banking for 18 years and including the Trading Floor, I always wondered what it would be like to trade. Now I no longer have to wonder! Registering w/ Online Trading Academy and their (Total Solution Program), I am well on my way to be able to handle my own destiny as well as my short-term and long-term wealth! Learning the correct trading techniques to get me there is crucial in today's market. Online Trading Academy has what it takes and then some!!!”

“Online Trading Academy was a great setup. We learned how to set up a trading plan, then we were able to practice with instructor's help at your fingertips. They will not let you walk away until you say that you understood it all, and if you need any more explanation they will patiently walk you through it again.”

“All of the courses offered at Online Trading Academy are wonderful and give "the real deal" as to how the markets work! Keep it up, continue to expand and offer more resources/sessions and market related materials.”

“Wow! A giant step forward into the real world!”

“The educational experience met and exceeded my expectations of learning to trade the markets. I can now become a better, professional and disciplined trader, instead of a retail trader.”

“Online Trading Academy is an excellent school with the best forum of instructors who trade for a living, so you get the real deal of real life materials.”

“Everyone I have met here talks about how Reinhardt has changed their lives. What a gift it is to have learned these wealth management strategies this week. I only wish I could have learned them 30 years ago. ProActive Investor is a great foundation to everything else I will do in my Online Trading Academy journey.”

“WOW! Now I can plan my future myself!”

“Online Trading Academy, in my opinion, is very clean and organized. The front desk is friendly, I love them! not to mention helpful. I think that the teachers and staff overall are great people, always willing to help you no matter the question or concern and direct you in the path of the answer if they don't have it. They also are always willing to listen, even if you just want to vent. The food is great! It really helps for us to be timely with our breaks and saves us some money!!! The rooms are a little cold but bearable and I can't really complain because you guys do warn us bring a sweater!!! Overall, I loved the experience. The best I had so far in comparison to Better Trades and Investools. Definitely worth the money seeing that with the other programs I've done I paid about the same, if not more, for only two days in a hotel with a huge class size, little opportunity for one on one attention, no live trading and no refreshments; we had to find our own!!!!”

“What's really great about Online Trading Academy is that you can retake the class or classes. You eventually do "get it" despite initially being overwhelmed by material. The book is excellent. The instructor was very good.”

“The material is interesting and I can see light at the end of the tunnel, i.e. making money.”

“You need to turn the light on when you trade, this is the switch!”


2013

“I cannot imagine trading without Online Trading Academy training and, most importantly, becoming part of this amazing community of professional, rules based, disciplined traders. Traders get actual trades designed to teach the core principals while you learn, because learning is a lifelong process. Trading without Online Trading Academy is like white sticks tapping walls. As a reformed trend trader, Online Trading Academy has already increased my odds from 50/50 to something well north of that.”

“Online Trading Academy has provided me with tremendous support, knowledge and hands-on experience to take my trading/investing to another level.”

“There is no organization or community out there that will provide you with the information and skills required to trade the markets effectively. If you have the will, Online Trading Academy has the way.”

“I am really impressed with the quality of your teachers.”

“Online Trading Academy has become very helpful with my trading journey.”

“I joined Online Trading Academy to make Trading my career, with very little knowledge in trading. I've never looked back. After my first course I quickly experienced the immense knowledge everyone had - the staff and the instructors. I soon bought more courses and the XLT, which is an amazing educational medium. Soon, I learned the (trading) ropes, made money, joined the Mastermind Community and never looked back. Along with great education, Online Trading Academy is awesome in their service - especially the New York office staff. As a resident New Yorker I demand more, and everyone in the Online Trading Academy school, from the administration staff, to the education counselor and ultimately to the director, all have a real "open-door" policy and help the student in every way they can, and actually go beyond their reach to help out. I am extremely pleased I joined Online Trading Academy and would recommend this school to everyone who is serious, not bargain hunting, in making Trading their career.”

“My name is Damen Dinolfo, I came to the Online Trading Academy after suffering a tremendous loss due to hurricane and, to make matters worse, during the recovery effort I suffered a major back injury. I'm a professional race car/fabricator technician specializing in high end super cars. My business was destroyed, and more damaging was that I would no longer be able to earn the nice living I had been accustomed to because of my injury. My father one day was in the mall and just so happen to sign up for a market class, knowing that I have always liked the market and when I was 18 started to study for my series 7 test but drifted away and went on to pro racing. At that time I was home, basically nursing an injury and at the same time depressed that I had lost everything I had known and loved for so long. My father called me and said, "I'm taking a class, I have a plus one and think you should attend." I attended and instantly knew this school was the real deal. At that time I did not have the money to purchase a package, so my father put it on a credit card in good faith that I would comprehend the course material and be able to pay him back. Long story short, I started with Pro Trader, then went onto futures classes. I have all asset classes since I bought the total solution but my main focus is the futures at this time. My teachers have been phenomenal, starting with my coaches Gabi, Jeff and Eric, along with my Pro Trader teacher being Chris. My future teachers have been Bob, Craig and Josip. These guy have changed my life, along with watching videos of Sam. I have gone through losing money and having no confidence in my ability to invest in the markets, to having 3 losing days in 4 weeks. That's an incredible transformation! I have now, in the last 8 months, gone from no direction in life to learning an amazing technique and core strategy that has changed my life and my family's lives. I am almost completely debt free, including 30k in tuition alone. I recommend this program to anyone that has an interest in the markets and is willing to put the time in to learn the strategy and curriculum. I owe a lot to these guys in the Online Trading Academy and my father for being able to change my life's direction and be a consistently profitable trader day in and day out. Thank you, Online Trading Academy.”

“Online Trading Academy's strategy provides all the tools you need to be a successful trader. If you take the time in to complete the curriculum and use the training tools available on the web site, you will make money. Online Trading Academy classes can change the way you think about working and making money. It can change your life.”

“Online Trading Academy gave me a very practical and insightful view into actual trading. It is a very good combination of education and practical experience during the course, for me to establish a base to begin trading and continue my education.”

“I was really blown away by Online Trading Academy! The level of professionalism, support, the extent of their curriculum were all remarkable. The coaches and instructors were awesome. Had the opportunity to meet like minded individuals at various levels providing me with knowledge and inspiration. Very grateful for Online Trading Academy and the springboard they provide for individuals wishing to trade for income as well as wealth management/growth.”

“The staff was extremely helpful, especially Evan. I always enjoy speaking to him and picking his brain. He is a big asset to the New York campus of Online Trading Academy.”

“I've been hesitating or procrastinating learning trading because not knowing how and where to start. Taking Online Trading Academy class helps me to be on a faster track to start my learning, and hopefully sooner to start trading with confidence.”
