2016

“I am a beginner in the trading industry; read books before taking the free class and 3 day course and wanted to start trading real money but something was holding me back. I felt like I was not ready yet. I found OTA's ads online and decided to sign up, the 3-day course made me realize that there's a lot more to learn than I thought. After taking the Pro-trader class part 2, I became more knowledgeable about how professional traders trade. In class, there was a trader who used to work for Merrill Lynch and he said, he was never taught to use Stop Loss and Target Limits and he lost a lot of money. That made me realized that I made a good decision to invest in my education before trading with real money. Also, the education counselors advised me not to trade real money until I am ready. I truly recommend OTA if you are thinking of trading financial assets.”

“This is a good way to start, especially for novices like me. One does not need to have an economics or financial management background; in fact it is better to come with an open mind and without prior knowledge. The personnel are very friendly, everything is neat and clean; the food is good and the atmosphere is conducive for learning. It is always exciting to meet like-minded people.”

“OTA has figured out where everyone starts and goes by baby steps to get you up to speed and comfortable. Everyone starts from different spots in knowledge, but like the Marines, no one gets left behind! The future looks bright and makes sense. Kudos OTA.”

“The Toronto campus of Online Trading Academy has been a positive experience. The staff, the environment and the resources have made this an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I look forward to future classes with the exceptional trainers.”

“Trading academy offers the best experienced instructors that add a lot of insight into the trading industry! It is very rule based, methodical and the instructors do a good job of teaching it in a way everyone can understand!”

“When I read the initial reviews on OTA they were mixed between outstanding and the equivalent of time share salesmen. Having now experienced the initial 3 hour, 3 day and attended my 1st Pro Trader course, I can only concur with the "outstanding" comments regarding the program they provide. It's 1st class in every way. Their instructors are true professionals in their field and are committed to making the students successful including a willingness to remain in contact after the course program. The content of the course is no doubt overwhelming as their process is a completely unique way of approaching the trading process. They provide a wealth of information, both verbal and hard copy, with an extensive library of support videos to reinforce the classroom experience. As well, their in house staff are available for further support. Perhaps the greatest benefit of their program is that you are able to repeat any course in the future as many times as you need at no additional cost. This is the equivalent of a lifetime guarantee + the courses are constantly updated. I have yet to put into action their trading program, but am confident that I will be successful.”

“There are so many sources on the web which you can easily get lost. OTA is a right place where you can find authentic and useful knowledge for trading.”

“Online Trading Academy is the only the place where one comes to know how the real market actually works. Before enrolling in the academy, I didn't know abc (nothing) of the market, and now I'm at the position that I can jump into the real market and go for the trading. OTA really helps me a lot in overcoming my fear of markets and setting up my goals.”

“The empathy shown by Steve was incredible. Everyone seemed to get a lot out of the week. This class is rated as the best or tied for the best I've taken so far. Everything was top shelf, to the highest standards.”

Friendly and well organised.”

“I am pleased to have attended the OTA classes. OTA classes opened my eyes to the new frontiers in online trading and helped me set new learning goals for myself.

“OTA has developed a program of instruction that takes the student from beginning to intermediate to expert, with support at every step of the journey. With the lifetime retakes, and access to Pro Picks and Mastermind Community, there is always an opportunity to learn and share. I have now taken the futures class twice with John Rowland, and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to trade the futures market. He combines many years of experience with the ability to see what the newcomer needs and address that. Thank you OTA!”

Two of the instructors had 30 years including actual time in the trading pits. Very interesting stories that enhanced my learning experience. All instructors had very different teaching techniques but shared a passion for the success of each student that confirmed my decision about joining OTA. I look forward to my upcoming class in 3 weeks.”

“I have never traded before and was terrified of the idea of learning. Online Trading Academy has given me the excitement and some knowledge that I can do it successfully if I use all the tools that are provided to me. The staff here in Toronto is very nice and helpful. The center is clean, they provide parking and I have to say I am impressed with the quality of the food and the amount of food.”

“Being taught from an experienced trader is the best value to learning.”

“My eyes were opened. I thought I could read charts before joining OTA, but I was wrong. The system and disciplines are what I was lacking.”

“I can tell you this, OTA has a strategy that works. If you are trying to learn the markets you have to attend and start ASAP; the sooner the better as all the teaching I have learned from OTA has helped save me money. Most newbies go to free resources and that is fine, however, I will not let any other teach me. My instructor was David Fong. He was phenomenal; he kept the class VERY FUN and that is what is needed in a good learning environment. OTA has provided me with a lot of knowledge and I cannot wait to put it to use.”

“This was a fantastic experience. The instructor was very passionate and enthusiastic which made learning a fun experience. The members and staff of the OTA were very friendly and helpful at all times. I wish my university years were this beneficial. ”

“I am very, very pleased to have joined OTA. I realised after two to three days of classes that the money I spent for this training was not going to be waste. It has potential to change my life and I am very motivated to work towards that.”

“One of the things I decided I wanted to do in 2015 was stock trading. I knew absolutely nothing about the Stock market. I enrolled for Online Trading Academy's 3 day seminar, not only were they professionally presented but the information was broken down into sections that enabled a novice like me to follow. I enjoyed the sessions and the educator's humour. Sometimes it was just nice listening to his accent. Like anything worth doing, it is going to take time and money. I enrolled in the full course after the seminar and it's worth every dollar so far. The course is giving me a deep understanding of how the stock market works and that will make me a better trader. "I will see you on the floor.”

“Online Trading Academy's approach and methodology to online trading is a must for any novice or experienced trader at any level. If you are truly interested in developing the right foundation to go on and have a successful career in trading, Online Trading Academy is the institution to start that new journey. Long term success in trading with OTA as a partner has increased your percentages of success significantly; do not look elsewhere or spend money on books at the store! Adrian Madden - Dundas, ON Canada”

“When I first came to the introductory course I was really interested, and then went to the weekend course and it confirmed it for me. I am so excited about starting a new career and having freedom that I haven't had in the past. I am looking forward to a very bright future and I owe it all to Online Trading Academy. Thank you very much!”

“I always love coming to OTA. It is very inspiring to be a part of a very energetic group of people that truly enjoy trading. ”

“Everyone was friendly and great!”

“In this age where knowledge has exponentially become the most important asset to possess, this course addresses one of the greatest priorities that individuals should consider: do I try to "make more money," or should I "make more with my money?" There is no doubt that if a person has the inclination, the conviction and the perseverance, they will succeed using the knowledge received from these courses. Finding out how little you know about something so important is definitely a humbling experience that everyone should muster up the courage to take on.”

“I wish I had realized about you guys sooner!”

“A good introduction to essential concepts for everyone looking to trade the markets.”

“If you ever get the opportunity to meet the guys in Toronto Online Trading Academy you will undoubtedly be a lucky person. From the GM Ron to Coach Mike to Instructor Dale, these are some of the smartest most helpful and well put people I have ever met. From Day 1, they have made me feel part of the team and family and I can't thank them enough for teaching me how to be a better and more knowledgeable trader and person.”

“I've always heard the quote "let your money work hard for you, not the other way around." I believed the latter spoke to me, up until my initiation to Online trading Academy. I now know the former is within reach with hard work, focus, and discipline.”

“Online Trading Academy has changed the way I look at the market and manage my money. Since I've taken my first course in pro-trader over a year ago I've quit my job and trade full time intra-day. After taking the options course, I now have a tool to trade my longer term positions without worrying about gap losses.”

“Great location! Completely changed my psychology, how I view the markets and how I trade.”
