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."

What Students Are Saying

“Alex was very helpful in every aspect of teaching us the material and also in how to use it on the Oanda platform. He was very patient in presenting the material to the class as a whole as some students took a Little longer to understand the trading concept. He also expressed the need to continue our education using the XLT classes.”

“We had a wonderful experience in our Core Strategy and Core Strategy 2 classes. The teacher, Alex, was the best. He kept the energy up in the classroom, gave us great information and made sure everyone got the help they needed to understand the material. The course material was very well organized and took us step by step through the technology to a point where we really felt we understood how to apply the materials. The staff at OTA are the warmest, friendliest group. It is like a family and makes it so welcoming to be there. We highly recommend OTA to anyone who wants to learn how to trade.”
