Get Started with Your Financial Education

Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Core Strategy courses, you will learn skills and techniques to help you buy and sell ETFs like a professional trader. We will teach you a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. The Core Strategy courses (formerly known as Professional Trader) focus on stock trading using ETFs, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Core Strategy (5 days) and Part 2 (2 days); which are taken together. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

What Students Are Saying

“This class was a retake for me, although a first take under the new format, titled Core Strategy. As always, the instructor demonstrated a complete and thorough understanding of trading. In fact, there doesn't seem to be any question that the instructors at OTA cannot answer. I believe it is worth the investment.”

“The class proved itself to be a highly beneficial and substantial resource in helping us develop and realize our trading knowledge, skills, and abilities. The class itself is structured almost perfectly to address all the essential components of the core strategy. Our instructor, Jon Arginteanu, has been by far a perfect teacher during this process.”

“The Core Strategy Class was an extensive, elaborate presentation of the Supply and Demand concept. Kelly did an excellent job of explaining everything from basic concepts to precise detail to a class which consisted of pure novices to more experienced traders. The course is designed to provide a set of very specific procedures to follow and guide the student through the process of becoming a successful trader. The course content is very thorough with a book reflecting the slides used in class with plenty of room to add personal notes. The book was tabbed and organized making it a great reference tool as we start this adventure. Additionally, the lab book is a great guide to actually learn by doing which will reinforce the learning process.”

“I attended the pro-trader class in March 2017, the new format contains more detail and is very easy to follow and understand. I'm so glad I retook the class. I learned so much more and in a way that I comprehended better than before. The information in this new format was also presented in a way that I feel I'll remember it easier. Thank you!”
