“Before attending OTA core strategy course I was sure the financial world was completely unreachable by me. Now I know the real and simple truth, and even better, I reached new levels of self-confidence and achievement. This has been one of my best learning experiences ever.”

“I have now the skills and knowledge to trade and make money all life long.”

“Best learning environment I've ever been a part of. The combination of having the teacher and student helper is a tremendous asset. This combined with the small classroom size, additional training with your web based products and continuing support certainly seems to be leading me toward a successful entry into the markets.”

“I joined this program several months ago. I have learned so much about the world stock market. I want everyone to know, if you are interested about the market, just call Online Trading Academy. THANKS.”

“Not having traded online prior to attending OTA, this overview has been very helpful for me as I wish to hit the ground running when the Professional Trading course starts. There are lots of navigation buttons on the trading platform that are there to assist us in arriving at our trading decisions. Thanks for showing us around, Craig.”

“This program will do 2 things for you: 1) sober up your greedy dreams, and 2) empower you with the tools and knowledge that should enable positive realistic ambitions.”

“All the instructors are successful traders who are more than willing to share their knowledge and passion for the investments.”

“OTA class is a must for people who want to trade seriously. It is the university for traders. It is well organized and planned with an excellent curriculum. The instructors are professional, caring pleasant and approachable. The actual trading daily helps with self confidence and assurance. Even the lunches and breakfast are varied and yummy!”

“Everyone is happy to share their time & experience. I felt welcomed and immediately comfortable in the Centre environment. Personnel were open, friendly and helpful.”

“Online Trading Academy's first concern is to make sure you understand the basics from the platform being used to your trading strategies, and that you have continuous support. I am looking forward to a long and enjoyable association with OTA.”


“Overall, very good. Learned a lot about how important rules and discipline are to trading... and the realities of professional trading. A great experience and great base to build a future trading career from!!!”

“Worth the investment. As you can amortize it over years and you can go back and learn anytime.”

“If you have been trading for a while and things have not gone the way you planned, this program can actually help you get back on track provided you religiously follow their concepts.”

“I truly enjoyed the program. Initially I had the fear that I would not understand the Strategy, but the teachers, Chris and Craig, and my classmates were so helpful to me. It was wonderful.”

“All I can say is that: I have been experiencing a lot of blessings lately!!!!! I can never be thankful enough to have OTA invite people of passion and excellent hearts to give back to humanity, just like Sam Seiden did for this venture to educate people to give them the ALTERNATIVE!!!! JODY WONG is in a league of his own trying to make a difference and at the same time enjoying and having fun teaching!!”

“OTA Education is the best tool we are missing in the financial market. I wish I could have known 20 yrs. ago. Very friendly/caring and knowledgeable staff. Excellent training center. Mr. Craig was very helpful.”

“I have learned lots about the market from OTA. Instructors are very helpful and the core strategy used in OTA works.”

“I really enjoyed the program, Every day I'm learning something new and as the days go by I'm getting better and better. It really helps me a lot to become a better trader and manage my risk and have a good profit. Everything is good and staff and personnel were really friendly and helpful. The only downside is that you have to pay for parking.”

“I'm currently taking Pro Trader 1 and 2 with Chris Manson. I have never been in any market ever so to say I am green would be an understatement. I feel lucky to have landed Chris Manson as an instructor. I feel with his instruction I am beginning to understand and become very excited about my future as a trader. I know it will take some time as I plan on this becoming only a second source of income. However, you never know what the future holds. I feel blessed to have found this incredible family of entrepreneurs and look forward to soaking up the knowledge provided for years to come. Bye for now”

“Honesty and authenticity of staff and instructors. A genuine willingness to help students structure their own specific needs and plans.”

“The instructors are highly skilled at teaching to diverse classrooms and consistent in teaching core strategies. They invite your questions and help you to choose a trading style that fits your goals and trading style. I left every class knowing I was in good hands with OTA.”

“Once again OTA has helped me to continually have a better understanding of trading. It has always been a great experience at the Vancouver OTA center. Great instructions as well as great students and environment. Everyone is very helpful.”

“OTA's trading system is great. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable. You won't retain all the information with one class, but having the XLTs online or being able to retake the class is priceless as there is so much that you can learn. The support staff is always available to assist with any questions you have. Great learning experience.”

“More than I ever imagined it would be; very knowledgeable instructor with yrs. of experience,not some fly by night company.They really care about your success. The centre and staff were helpful at every turn; went out of their way to help anybody regardless of experience in trading and even provided 2 meals a day. Tell me the last time you were at a conference and they fed you.”

“I love how Online Trading Academy tries to meet everyone's needs, no matter how frustrating that must get at times.”

“OTA has an amazing learning & teaching environment! Reginald Ringgold was an excellent instructor! He was very informative & patient. Would definitely recommend to anyone!!”

“David Fong is a great instructor. His teaching approach is systematic, clear and easy to follow. The center staff are friendly. The environment is great for learning. Would like to learn more from him and all other great instructors, as well as learning companions.”

“3 months ago I started to trade looking to complement my actual income. The process became a painful experience as I started losing money instead of achieving my goals, so I decided to enroll in a school looking to get some formal education regarding stock trading. OTA was the best choice I found in the market. As soon as the classes began, I realized about all the terrible mistakes I was making during my trading sessions. With the help and support of instructors like Gabe Velazquez, everything started to take shape and make sense. Uriel Navarro”

“I came into the course eager to learn all about the 'markets' and how world events influence our economy. My goal was to learn a new skill and gain some insight into how to better protect my wealth for the future. The sheer amount of information presented was overwhelming at first but intriguing nevertheless. I came away with a whole new appreciation of how interconnected our world is with respect to various markets. All the 'moving parts' of our economy are fascinating to watch and, although it will take time, I am determined to learn the skills necessary to become a participant in the trading world. This course is just the beginning of an exciting journey for me and I am eager to continue!”

“I highly recommend these classes to anyone looking to better their future in trading the markets.”

“Ed is a good teacher. I like the different styles the teachers have to learn from, which helps you pick up some of their tips to help you trade.”

“Due to an unworkable schedule I took Pro Trader 2 online first. Not sure what to expect, the in class course was a total surprise. Even though it was Pro Trader 2 it seemed like I had taken two courses that covered the same material... it was awesome. Online, all course material was covered... in class, some course material but a lot of time in front of the computer trading in sim and real time. Take both, a huge benefit.”


“It's an extremely educational program with a fun yet professional atmosphere.”

“As an ex stockbroker/investment banker/licensed option trader, I would highly recommend Online Trading Academy to both industry professionals and non investment industry persons as an educational tool to have a high probability of success in their investment activities.”

“After one has acquired the technical skills of trading, it is all about the mind game. OTA has given me great help to bridge that gap. I have gained a lot of confidence through my training with OTA. Great programs to learn trading in its simplest way with huge consistency potential and minimize the fear factor. Great team. Thank you.”

“I am really happy with all the information being taught. Very useful knowledge. I recommend anyone that is considering to trade to learn from OTA.”

“I would like to tell that ONLINE TRADING ACADEMY has been changing my life. The strategy is great, the information is great, the support is amazing; I highly recommended.”

“Good course, good instructors, and a huge amount of resources and support from everyone at OTA. We would highly recommend this course. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the center very clean. I loved it and look forward to my next class.”

“Don't waste your time with any other schooling. Online Trading Academy does it right. From pro instructors to life time enrollment, they will teach you to succeed.”

“The education that OTA is offering is one that ranks top on integrity.”

“I know now how the markets behave and why. I am more informed and better prepared to face the challenges of the markets. I can say that it is a course for all of us so as that we can protect our savings and help them to grow with the knowledge we get.”

“OTA provides a very unique learning environment. There is nothing out there like it. Very satisfied with the content they offer.”

“I have enjoyed the wealth of knowledge and information shared at the OTA with its students, and the abundance of support that is made available through the website. I feel much better prepared to take on investing now that I have confidence and that I have learned how to manage risk.”

“I was very skeptical that it is possible to teach the program, but as you do it in baby steps, it all makes sense in the end.”

“I learned more in the five day options course than I could ever hope to learn on my own from the brokerages or online, plus I was able to trust the information I was being given as an unbiased attempt to increase my ability to trade profitably. A real bonus was having Matt Gildea as the instructor. He made it very interesting, at least for me.”

“OTA has been a great learning experience. To learn all of this on my own would have taken a lot more time and been a LOT more expensive. OTA brings in very skilled instructors that make the learning experience fun, while giving you the knowledge to create an income for yourself no matter what the economy happens to throw at you.”

“I'm so glad that I finally found an online program with onsite courses provided that is targeted to learners of all ages and stages of learning and ability. The instructors are knowledgeable in teaching and experience, being traders themselves. The Trading Academy also provides ongoing support through connecting students to a local coach and to phone and online support. Expectations are realistic and truthful.”


“This was a premium experience for me -- with terrific value provided! ”

“Outstanding! If you are truly serious about trading this is the only logical place to start. It's no magic pill, you will have to the work, all things worthwhile require it.”

“It is always helpful to attend classes at Online Trading Academy.”

“This was the first time having had a female instructor. There is no doubt men and women see the world differently so it was good to see things from a female perspective. My own opinion is that men tend to be more aggressive vs. women, who may be more conservative. Good to have and see both sides. Also, good to have different instructors teaching the same class at the centers as each new instructor brings their own style and has their own view/tricks of the trade. Very happy with the Vancouver Online Trading Academy staff and am looking forward to becoming a more successful trader as a result of these classes. Will be back soon for the next level and course in my overall plan.”

“After years of very expensive failures I can now approach the market again with confidence. The most valuable information was how to reduce risk, and timing the entry. And, of course, it sure helps to finally understand the reasons behind my previous failures. Thanks to all at Online Trading Academy.”

“Of the three previous trading courses I took with other companies, Online Trading Academy was far superior in every way - understanding how the stock market works, etc.”


“Before coming to this course I had listened to many radio and TV programs on the stock market, but had only a vague idea of how the whole industry works. I now have an excellent working knowledge of the macro-economic picture, as well as how individual traders work, and now have a solid foundation from which to start my new trading career. The course experience surpassed my expectations and was a very positive event that will, no doubt, become life changing for my family and me.”
