After completing college, Bachir Chaaya went on to join a leading Oil and Gas services company where he had his first exposure to the trading of Crude Oil and Natural Gas futures contracts.

His first contact with Online Trading Academy was in 2008, where he immediately realized the value of the material offered and became a Mastermind Community member soon after. Under the mentorship of some of the best Online Trading Academy instructors, Bachir was well positioned to accelerate his learning curve, and in 2011 he resigned from his day job and became a full time professional trader.

Bachir is a very disciplined and rule based trader. As an Instructor, he places great emphasis on psychology, risk management, and having a specific trade plan. He uses a lot of real life examples to simplify and better deliver the concepts of supply and demand and uses live demo trades in class to emphasize the validity of these concepts.
