“Modern facility. Easy to get to. All staff members are helpful and personable. This class reinforced my research that the institution is legitimate, that the instruction is first rate, and that, if I put in the time and effort, I will be successful as a trader.”

“I was trained in an MBA program, that technical analysis had no proven predictive value. Looks like OTA has shown the folly of that statement... - Just look at the success record of their graduates! Everything was pre-arranged and well organized. This made the rigorous class experience much easier, mentally and physically. Everything was made as thorough and simple as possible.”

“Well organized class with extremely knowledgeable, professional instruction. All the staff at the DC location is superb. Tim was an excellent instructor. His stories from the front line of professional trading gave us comic relief and context. Natalie is friendly, efficient and always helpful. Rick is everywhere making sure things are running smoothly. Dawn is everybody's cheerleader. I would recommend creating a smoother transition from the "theory" classroom portion to the "practical" online portion of the class. More time for learning the platform would help.”

“It is so cool to be in the same room with instructors that have been on the floor or in banks or institutions trading. Being able to access their view of the market first hand is truly the best tool for a new trader. Thank you”

“I started off not even knowing how to turn on a computer, but with the constant guidance of the education counsellors and instructors, I am able to trade with confidence. OTA has been a blessing and retirement never looked so good!”

“The Online Trading Academy is foremost among the many educational facilities one could attend to learn effective trading in Stocks, Options, Futures and Forex. The classrooms are clean and learning stations up to date. The instructors are very knowledgeable on their subject and friendly as is the staff.”

“This program is essential for anyone who wants to get ahead in the financial markets.”

“As a relative "newbie" to OTA, I've encountered only professionals who choose to deal with me in only a professional manner as they impart to me the ways to professionally look upon trading to get nothing but professional results! This is not a program for the "faint at heart", only serious committed people need apply! You must be committed, decisive and disciplined. This is all about making money the old fashion way, "you earn it...".”

“Teachers make sure you understand the material, usually by breaking down complex concepts with graphics and elementary examples that are quite easy to comprehend. They would not leave the classroom until they have all your questions answered.”

“The center's administrative and student support staff are very accommodating and dedicated to helping the students. They deserve frequent thanks and praise.”

“The support staff is very engaged in helping you along your journey. They go out of their way to show you all of the options that you have at your disposal for learning. Our education counselor is there to greet us with a positive attitude every day. Our professional trader instructor, Craig Weil, was very knowledgeable and helped us to understand the things we needed to do to be successful traders.”

“Staff is very helpful and the facility is comfortable.”

“OTA taught me the skills to manage my investment portfolio and build personal wealth. Their program allows students to sign up for classes and retake the class as often as needed, which is essential. Mastering a skill takes repetition and lifelong learning. OTA's techniques continue to improve, which means my trading continues to improve. And I am now part of a community of traders who share my passion for trading.”

“This type of education is vital if you are to survive in a world of investment misinformation.”

“The Washington and Baltimore OTA campuses are superb in every respect.”

“I really enjoyed the program and I have a lot of confidence in core strategy and the potential to do very well using it. The courses I have taken so far with Online Trading Academy have really been worth the money and changed my life in a big way.”

“I really appreciate the sense of community that OTA encourages and creates and the wonderful level of instruction in the courses that I have enrolled in.”

“OTA has a wonderful staff and is really most excellent at providing you with different ways to learn various asset classes and how to trade profitably. The education process is ongoing and very personal with access to a wide range of extremely knowledgeable instructors and classes both live, recorded, onsite and offsite. You can't ask for more than that if you are trying to become a successful trader.”

“Having always wanted to enter this field but not having any confidence in the hit and run techniques, I decided to take a leap of faith and enroll. I now find myself kicking my butt for not doing this 15 years ago. Best decision I've made in a very long time.”

“This was the education I had been seeking... previously I had been looking into MBA programs with focused finance and investing curricula, but those programs seemed to focus more on theory and less on actual investment strategies. OTA is enabling me to start applying my education NOW, not in a few years. Thank you!”

“My Oh My, so sad that this class is over! I really enjoyed my time here, meeting the faculty and learning how to trade like a professional. I am not there yet, but the knowledge is growing and I feel confident that I will be taking future steps with the awesome staff by my side to help me learn the REAL fundamentals of trading the OTA way!”

“I would recommend OTA to anyone who wants to learn how to trade. OTA provides invaluable information.”

“Even though I've been trading for over 30 years, the OTA core strategy opened my eyes to a completely new way of looking at the markets.”


2014

“I didn't know anything, well not much, about trading; this course gave me a great foundation and starting point. I enjoy the way OTA sets up the courses and the way the staff takes their time to explain any concerns. I look forward to future courses.”

“The instructors are usually the best of the lot and the staff here is terrific.”

“This class was more informative than I expected. Trading live is the best way to learn and it gave me a good sense of what to expect when I start to use my own account.”

“If you are thinking about trading for short term income or long term wealth, or simply better managing those who manage your savings, take OTA's classes first, then apply what you learn in simulated exercises and under live conditions.”

“Enjoyed everything I got out of OTA, from the psychological aspects of trading to the VERY effective supply and demand techniques. ”

“THANK YOU very much. You have given me the tools to make my dreams come true!!!!!!!”

“This was an in depth introduction to the world of trading and the complexities involved.”

“I repeated Professional Trader, for health reasons (knee replacement surgeries). But it seems like it was a different course altogether when I attended the second time. Excellent Online Trading Academy Program.”

“While the online training is certainly doable, I truly appreciate the interaction and additional exposure you get when attending at a physical location. Further solidifying the concepts during a retake class is key for me. I highly recommend it.”

“This was a great start to my education to become a pro trader. Tremendous experience.”

“This will help me improve my Trading Plan and Business Plan.”

“After 46 years of trading, I can state categorically and without qualification that the Online Trading Academy has "the Best" instructional content and Trading Strategies that I have found at any school! If you don't take full advantage of this extraordinary opportunity, you are just wasting time and losing money.”

“This is my first time to learn about trading. These two parts of trainings opened the trading door for me. Both teachers are not only teaching the skills of trading, they also shared a lot of their experience with us. We have learned a lot. ”

“I don't think I could have gotten my feet wet in a better place than Online Trading Academy.”

“Simulated training is essential as it reinforces the legitimacy of the core strategies and odds enhancers that Online Trading Academy instructs. Whenever I depart from these in order to test my own theories, my failures reinforce the need for discipline and adherence to the core strategies.”

“Great overall experience, gives a great understanding of how the markets actually work.”

“The Washington staff offers an excellent and positive environment to learn. My thanks to them as always.”


2013

“The problem with online courses in general is that one does not have the community to provide the learning experience. This is not only completely solved by Online Trading Academy, but one learns so much of the reason "why" for doing each thing. There are some things in life where it is completely necessary to know the "why's," as well as the "how's" and "what's," trading is one of those things. Oh, and by the way, many of the "why's" that you learn at Online Trading Academy are things not available to most others, except for professionals such as floor traders. One can search all day on the web and it is not found.”

“Beautiful offices, very helpful staff. Each person here seemed genuinely invested in seeing me succeed.”

“I have traded for 4 years without understanding the value of a stop. Online Trading Academy has saved me a lot of money! Now, by using the Demand and Supply Zone strategies, I expect clarity in my next trade.”

“I have taken other so called training for trading in the market and Online Trading Academy is literally the BEST thing going in the finance industry! As an accountant by trade, I know that this information is not being taught in any school. This should be taught in universities across the country.”
