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."

“I've had an awesome experience with OTA Philly in their Forex course! Instructor Alex Perna was knowledgeable, informative, and engaging. He helped me to build onto the foundation that was developed in Core Strategy, and really demonstrated how effective Core really is in our trading. He answers questions clearly and provides useful constructive criticism! His knowledge of the currency market is very in-depth, and his insight will be very useful in my trading! Everyone else at the center is just as important! I love that they remember everyone by name, and they are constantly checking in to see how our trading is going! If you have a question, they will stop what they are doing to try and help you out. Truly an extraordinary group of people at OTA Philly! So thankful this is my home center! Can't wait for the next opportunity to come back!”
