“Scott McKormick is extremely knowledgeable on all topics that were covered. He also has an innate ability to communicate that knowledge to even the most novice of traders. His comedy is an added bonus.”

“Hello, my name is Mira and I have not got any previous trading experience. Joined the OTA last year only because my son recommended it and I wanted to keep him happy and thought to myself - if this is an easy way to make money then I may as well go for it - if he cn do it then I can do it too. However I did not follow it up and almost a year later I have attended the XLT Forex program with a sceptical manner thinking - it is going to be a waste of time as it is not something that will bring me income straight away but I have to do it because I have paid for it. And to my surprise, the way the course was delivered had made every single second spent - worth it. I have learned a lot in a very short space of time and like with everything else in life it is down to the individual to make a good use of the knowledge and excel using the OTA facility which is also available to us. I would strongly recommend the OTA to any individual who is willing to dedicate time and efforts into something that looks and sounds simple, but it is very much a strategic and psychological way of managing your work life and enjoying the benefits of being your own boss and creating your own standard of living which could be very rewarding. Thank you to my coach - Becky for being persistent in keeping in touch and keeping me informed of the next steps as well Louise Carr for delivering the training in the most professional and motivational manner. ”

“Don Dawson is a gifted instructor. He is eminently qualified to teach futures, having thirty years real-life experience in the field. He is an excellent communicator and is very focused on communicating the course materials. He obviously enjoys teaching and is very intent on ensuring the students comprehends the real-life strategies of the trade, as well as gets the vision of what is possible. I am very pleased to have had him as my instructor. He made the course very useful, profitable, and interesting. Kudos to Don. He is a real asset to Online Trading Academy. --Thomas M”

“ I appreciate the honest assessment of potential pitfalls of training. I believe it's important for students to clearly articulate their goals, and the course provided structure to help me define "Why" behind the goal. I believe that the instructor (Quinten) did an excellent job to verbally frame up the landscape through which we ware about to journey. - Boone. ”
