“Every one of the OTA instructors has a different and unique perspective of markets they are active in. As a student, this enables you to choose the right trading strategy that better aligns with your personality. There is a great emphasis on risk management and ensuring that the students get whatever they need to meet their financial goals. Highly, highly recommend and also caution about the steep learning curve & time commitment.”

“What makes a company great is the staff. OTA has succeeded in instilling a level of ability and dedication.”

“OTA provides a truly accelerated learning experience for beginning traders. I am happy I took the courses provided and recommend them to everyone interested in becoming a trader or who wants to expand his/her investment knowledge and experience.”

“It is rare that you can enroll in such a rewarding program. It has been a life-changing experience for both my wife and myself. I would urge anyone who wants to take control of their financial destiny to take this program. Run, don't walk! It is a deal of a lifetime.”

“I signed up for several other trading schools/programs/black boxes before finding OTA. OTA is the best by far! Consider yourself lucky if this is the first place you encounter in the pursuit of learning to trade the markets. Worth every cent.”

“OTA has opened my eyes to a whole new world that I knew existed but wasn't confident I could be successful in. I left my very 1st class on the edge of my seat eager to learn more. I feel so blessed to be here. The staff is great and the information is life changing.”

“The data presented is very revealing as to the true nature of the markets' functionalities. A lot of revealing information to better make and retain wealth with presentation of various paradigm changes we need to apply. I am so eager to move forward so that I can apply more of this 1st class life changing details to my life and those I love and care for. Prayer changes things but the revelation of "money being a TOOL" is an answer to prayer! ”

“OTA has been the most valuable and memorable experience in my life. I have met so many people that have helped me, both instructors, staff, and fellow students. This experience has changed my life.”

“I came to OTA with barely any knowledge of the market or how many assets it included. Between January 2015 when I attended the Market Timing class, and now May 1st post Forex, my knowledge has grown at an awesome rate. I personally don't think you can acquire knowledge this fast and in-depth anywhere else.”

“Well worth your time if you really want to immerse yourself in understanding how to trade.”

“People at OTA are terrific. Very helpful and understanding of needs.”

“This program is like opening the door to see a brand new world. OTA shows us how trading is truly done successfully. It is a way of looking at the financial markets that is not taught anywhere else. Both staff and students are extremely helpful and team spirited.”

“This was the tremendous experience I needed. Lot of things I struggled on before became clear. My confidence grew 10 fold. This instructor (Sunil) is perfect instructor for my engineering personality and way of thinking. Classes like this one build confidence in the ability to use OTA strategy by any new trader in the house. I was lacking very much exactly that what I gained from this class.”

“The OTA Norwalk group are true professionals. They encourage all types of effective learning practices and are considered partners in my on-going education.”

“OTA is a great opportunity to prepare oneself for their financial future and receive the educational experience of a lifetime with mutual support among both instructors and fellow students, both physically and online. ”


“The Norwalk center is great and the people are friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating.”

“Excellent center with great follow up support. Student camaraderie. Meet up groups.”

“A learning experience where you feel the instructor is truly concerned and in touch with the students. The ability to implement on the computer, from the first day, what was taught in the class provided each student with instant feedback as to whether or not they understood what was presented. Whereupon, if necessary, the instructor would eagerly review the material for greater clarification.”

“The instructors have real world experience. All of them trade the financial markets themselves and they are carefully selected for their ability to communicate well.”

“When trading, there is a method to apply like in any other profession. When people think of trading as gambling, it is because they obviously do not know and probably they have gone in a trade with no appropriate education. It is the same as if you want to become a doctor or an engineer, you have to go to school and get the proper knowledge and apply it.”

“The course totally met my needs as a novice trader looking to expand and enhance their skills. I felt totally comfortable within this environment.”

“I am genuinely surprised at how much I have learned by the end of my Pro Trader class with Chris Muldoon in Norwalk. I was concerned I was going to walk away without the confidence and knowledge to get started (by doing simulated trading), but I couldn't have been more wrong. I know I have a lot more to learn, but I am excited to continue learning after this course. I credit OTA, Chris Muldoon and the Norwalk location with an overall fantastic experience!”

“Clear, concise, simple steps towards profit and success!”

“Just do yourself a favor and take these courses. They will change your life!”

“The class helped me gain more confidence in trading and get a better understanding of the mistakes that novice traders make. Great staff, everyone seemed to genuinely have an interest in your success and making it enjoyable.”

“Love the center! Everyone is willing to explain and help the system.”

“I fell that choosing Online Trading Academy was a smart choice for me. The classes are more then what is promised, the knowledge that I received in the last 6 months is worth gold.”

“I was lost and struggling. So I decided to go back to basics. I was happy with my decision. This Pro Trader's course gave me the confidence I have misplaced and set me back on track. Jon Arginteanu took the time to make sure that my trades made sense and helped me with the reasoning why it succeeded and failed. ”

“If you want to learn how to trade and are not afraid of hard work during immersive learning, then the Online Trading Academy curriculum is for you. Furthermore, their Supply/Demand methodology provides the best way of identifying low risk/high reward/high probability trades that I have encountered. Too bad I didn't find them sooner - I want to get back all the money spent on other training so I can utilize it as trading capital for the Online Trading Academy approach.”

“I now have taken Professional Forex class, Professional Futures trader class and Professional trader class. I feel like my trading level exponentially grows with each class and instructor I attend. I more and more feel that this is the best choice I have made, to become a member of the Online Trading Academy community!!! Worth every penny!!!”

“I want to retire as a truck driver, and now I can thanks to Norwalk, CT staff.”

“This experience was a great one. The knowledge that I left with is priceless. The instructors, the people, just all around great.”

“I have always had a great experience at Online Trading Academy, my home away from home. Thank you for moving closer!!!!! It will make attending meet-up groups easier.”

“The classes are very useful; My personal plan is to take them a few times each with different instructors. But I strongly recommend for others to take the classes.”

“Very happy with the Pro Trader class and all the support the staff in Stamford has given me so far. Can't sign up for the other classes (Forex, Futures, TradeStation platform) fast enough!”

“Online Trading Academy makes the puzzle of successful trading easier to understand around Online Trading Academy core trading strategy taught in accessible, caring ways by their experienced instructors and staff.”

“All the staff is great!”


“Hey, compared to the way I traded before, I am eons ahead of the game. I wish that I had the opportunity to take the course earlier than I did. However, I am sharing the experience with my son who came along for the ride, and I can always explain things to other members of the family. For anyone with an IRA, it is the way to go.”

“Great program because we got to live trade. ”

“Highly informative and excellent delivery of materials by the instructor. Support staff were great and catered to all our needs.”

“Online Trading Academy is the right choice to learn how to trade. If one has the desire and is willing to work, Online Trading Academy teaches the material so that one can learn to trade successfully.”

“I'm having a ball learning about the so many mistakes I made during trading. I always felt like there was something that I was doing wrong, and I was! I was trading like a retail trader, but thanks to Online Trading Academy, I can turn the tide a little my way.”

“The course (Professional Trader) gave me both the strategic and tactical approach I was looking for, when it came to investing and trading.”

“Steve runs an excellent facility and program. His support staff, though few in number, are also excellent. I have moved to Manhattan and will miss the Stamford experience (I commuted 1.5 hours each way to take Forex in Stamford and plan to try New York next).”

“Online Trading Academy is the place to be if you are looking for trading education that will ensure your success at trading, training is not just coming to class and going home.

I always wanted to do trading but, unfortunately, I was lost because I didn't know where to start. Well, no better place on earth than Online Trading Academy for trading. I'm so happy now. Thank you, Steve, Alan and especially Mark. Love you guys.”

“Every one of the Online Trading Academy staff were very helpful and friendly.”

“I enjoyed the opportunity to trade which helped me apply what I learned during the course. I enjoyed the pre-market morning XLT live course, morning market talks, radio show with Merlin was fun.”
