“I had very little understanding of the markets and different asset classes and how and why they are traded. I also realized how much control I need to have over my portfolio and not in the hands of a financial adviser with low performing account returns year after year. Overall this felt like the best first step I could take in my goal to continuing my trading knowledge. -Daniel”

“This Core Strategy provides you a step by step system to accurately find supply and demand zones. I tried to do this myself - but never came up with a concrete procedure. This has given me a much higher confidence on my zoning - and with that on my trading. Thank you! George Krause Waupaca WI ”

Kansas City Core Strategy Class

“I believe OTA is the place to get a good and a reliable strategy to trade more efficiently in all of the markets. You feel like you are supported from the beginning to end. I also like the fact that my teachers were once sitting in the classroom where I was and have the perspective on what it is like to be a student learning new information. It is truly inspiring. ”

Los Angeles - Westwood, CA Core Strategy Class

Vancouver, Canada Core Strategy Class

“I have been taking OTA classes off and on for the past year. I recommend this program to anyone who 'wants to take control' of their financial investments. I was very skeptical at first, but I am so glad that I decided to give OTA a chance. The OTA Core Strategy allows for a greater percentage of successful trades, by teaching traders 'how to control their reward-to-risk ratio' in each and every type of asset class. This is the REAL secret to being a successful trader. Thank you OTA! Roxanne Petro”

Boston, MA Core Strategy Class

“I was searching for education in trading, and although we live in high tech times, with the possibility of totally virtual classrooms, I was very happy to find a brick and mortar school where I could be physically in the room with instructors and assistants and receiving instruction directly with the ability to receive assistance in the moment. OTA offers the best of both worlds, in person training with ample online support and continuing educational tools. The instructors are very seasoned with a lot of depth of knowledge and experience. ”

Irvine, CA Core Strategy Class

“My name is Kevin Te, and I recently took the Core Strategy class at Online Trading Academy. My dad was the one who suggested it to me, and he wanted to take the class too. I had no idea about the ways you could play the market to get great profit margin with low risk, and I would have never realized that those ways could be quite simple. It took me a little while at first to understand the basics of setting the curve, finding the zones and trend, finding formations, and etc. But after that, everything clicked with me. Daniel Sugar is an outstanding instructor, and he made the material clear and very easy to understand, as well as fun and interesting at the same time. This class opened my eyes to new things, and I am very excited to get started trading soon. I might even take the class again to review, and am considering taking a Forex or Futures class in the near future.”

“The program at the Charlotte office far exceeded my expectations. The staff welcome you personally when you arrive. The facilities are clean. Snacks are provided to make breaks a welcome time to reset and visit with other students and staff--great efforts are made by the Charlotte folks to build community. We have found the classes to be a good balance of visuals, didactic instruction, and hands-on. Those of us who return to retake classes for updated curriculum and review are welcomed like family. My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed our class times here and appreciate the support always available once we leave. Much thanks for an educational experience that is well presented and life changing. Debbie Hellams”
