The OTA Advantage

For over 23 years, and now in 7 countries with 40+ locations, OTA has become a leader in trading education. Our success comes from knowing that trading is a skill and like any skill (whether swinging a golf club or flying a plane), studying alone won’t get you to mastery. You’ve got to get in the game and practice. Skill development (not just knowledge acquisition) is what separates Online Trading Academy from other financial education companies. We teach you in a similar fashion to how the big banks and financial institutions teach traders on their floor. Learn. Practice. Repeat.


Step-by-step experiential learning on-location or online


Well respected for over 23 years, worldwide


Platform technology that helps you learn, practice and develop skills
