Alex Perna became interested in trading as an economics student in college. After finding Online Trading Academy, he knew what he wanted to do and how he was going to do it. With the knowledge he gained as an Online Trading Academy student, Alex started to trade the Forex market using strictly the core methodology of Supply and Demand.

He was taught the importance of risk management, position sizing and psychology early in his trading career, so when he teaches a class he stresses the importance of these disciplines. Psychology of trading is taught every day in Alex's class, along with drills and techniques to keep the trader disciplined and consistent.

Alex is proud to be an Instructor for Online Trading Academy because of its dedication to students. He says, "I love the community OTA creates to help support it's students. With the love and passion each instructor brings to this community, learning is fun and the drive to accomplish very strong."

“This class has been an amazing experience for me. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If I ever need/want to retake it, I hope that Alex will be teaching at that time. The class was not only incredibly informative and will be useful for me in trading Spot Forex, which is my asset class of choice, but Alex's teaching style and method are incredible. Thank you, Alex!”

“I'm applying what he taught immediately. I really enjoyed Alex's class because he is systematic in his approach to trading. I liked that he shared with us the rules he applies in his consideration of zones, covered trend in depth and outlined various trend scenarios and the action to take under each circumstance. He talked us through trade set ups and I was surprised to find myself following his train of thoughts. Getting an insight into his thought process was fascinating!”
