“OTA is one of the best educational programs I attended. Awesome instructors, easy to follow curriculum and manual / books!”

“Overall, I experienced an atmosphere conducive to learning an effective and strategic form of online stock market investing. The program provides you with the tools and technique to develop a sustainable and profitable home based business.”

“The learning experience at the OTA Washington DC facility is exceptional. Students are made to feel welcome in every way possible. Outside stress is minimized thanks to the center's consideration for their students. This really helps to improve the learning process. Anyone truly interested in taking their financial future into their own hands is well advised to learn the OTA Core Strategy and XLT program approach and methods.”

“OTA offers a perspective that is rare in any market. Their adult education is second to none and their support of the student is exceptional at any level of measurement. If a student does not excel after enrolling at OTA, the problem is 100% on that student's back, not OTA. They offer a level of support that could place any person into a successful position.”

“The instructor (Scott) was very knowledgeable and was very personable and effective in his teaching. When I needed extra help I was given a question and answer review by another staff member, to my delight, several of the other students joined the review session. Again, the staff member (Rick) was knowledgeable and very personable in his teaching. And then Scott was more than happy to review the entire class.”

“I can't wait until my son takes this course and we can collaborate together on trading. This is truly a fantastic course, and I have recommended it to a number of friends already.”

“The community of fellow students was great and the quality of the instructor is very high. All the staff are great!!!”

“As this information is totally out of my profession, OTA allows me to acquire this new material in as simple a format as possible. Class time and supporting materials are organized in a methodical way that aids in mastering these skills. Really appreciate all the help from Rick and Chris and our instructor, Alex. Thanks!”

“It amazes me how so much information is organized so well so that it is able to fit into 5 days. Even the activities prior to the classes are so useful and necessary to fully prepare yourself for the first level of understanding. Alex is an incredibly thorough and very patient and kind teacher. He has a real understanding of what it was like to be a beginner.”

“At first when I came to OTA, I thought it is another of those scam schools who claim to teach you the secret sauce of trading and after they take your money they will leave you out to dry. However, I found to my surprise that OTA is a different type of school. They want their students to succeed so bad that they will do everything in their power to help you become a successful trader. So far, I am very much impressed with everyone at the DC staff as well as all the instructors. Coming from the financial world myself, their instructors and services are one of the top I have seen.”

“I am glad I found this family. OTA is my new family now :) all the instructors/counselors are awesome, loaded with knowledge and experience. I am like a sponge now, just suck it all in. Can't wait till I place my first trade. I wish I knew this school before I got my ME engineering degree because the only thing I used my degree for is to build someone's dream. TIME TO BUILD MINE!”

“The staff is completely focused on the students' success. They are in constant contact with the students answering questions and are quick to offer anecdotal stories of their experiences, in order to ease the concerns of the students. The center is neat and organized. With as many people as run through the area in a given day, the scheduling of everything is tight. They seem to run a pretty tight ship.”

“I was amazed at the depth and breadth of the training. I learned more in 5 days about trading and money than I have learned in my whole life combined.”

“OTA is the real deal - the instructors are outstanding and the ability to take 'retakes' is phenomenal. Everything OTA promised has been kept and more so.”

“I love it that I can bring my 18 year old son to join me at OTA. It is never too late to learn to trade whether you are young or old, and where else but Online Trading Academy. Friendly, clean and most of all they make it fun and they make you feel you are part of a community.”

“Online Trading Academy has helped me increase my personal wealth by making me a skilled and smart trader. OTA does this by hiring the most experienced and dedicated instructors who teach students how to be confident in their approach to trading according to a tried and true set of trading rules. Trading is hard work. OTA teaches its students in a way that makes the hard work pay off. ”

“Been a great learning experience! Everyone was great and helpful and Tom Joyce was just outstanding! What great knowledge and patience. Rick was great as well and very understanding and helpful. Much more than I could ever have imagined. Looking forward to the next steps and classes with OTA and especially with Tom.”


2016

“Online Trading Academy is the school I wish I found and attended 20 years ago! However, I was fortunate enough to recently locate the school and start the classes. The center has it all! Starting with the staff experience, coordination, skills in the education field and ending with the beautiful and well maintained property all over. Feels very comfortable and is a true high education environment. I can honestly say that it fits the way I always wanted to make money! It has proven to me already that in one day I will be able to say I am in charge of my destiny and have the financial freedom I always looked for. It's like a dream coming true. Thank you all for giving me the chance!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 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.”

“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.”
