Bob Dunn is the only Online Trading Academy Instructor who was formerly a professional race car driver. He attended college on a hockey scholarship and has built high performance engines for a living. But when it comes to trading, this need for speed translates to a healthy respect for a disciplined approach to reading the markets.

Bob has been trading interest rate futures since 1980 and this is still one of his favorite market plays. Online Trading Academy’s supply and demand strategy allows him to find low-risk, high-potential trades regardless of what the overall market is doing.

Bob is an active member of Power Trader Nation, where he often shares his trading ideas. Students in his classes can expect an instructor who will let them go as fast as they want, yet isn’t afraid to put on the brakes and remind them of the core strategy that helps ensure their trading success.

“As with each of our classes with OTA, our Futures class with Bob Dunn was exceptional. Drawing on his wealth of experience, Bob punctuated our lessons with pithy stories from his past to illustrate not only on what we should do, but also what NOT to do! Add to this pearls of wisdom such as how to successfully trade gaps, and we completed our week armed with a wealth of knowledge to equip us to be savvy futures traders. Thanks, Bob!”

“The information and insight presented by Robert Dunn is outstanding. Presentation not necessarily "By the Book" as the content, concepts and real world experience from an actual floor trader are not in one. If it was, I'd Buy the book. One can learn to trade, sure... Mr. Dunn shows how "serious money" is made. If he is available, you should not miss him. Stan Wentland”

“Bob has trades for everyone to see during class and on the Tuesday sessions. This is proof that he makes good money with his trading style. I see Bob as a trading mentor and I am looking forward to one day getting to his level of trading. It can be a life changer for anyone willing to learn.”

“The Professional Futures class taught by Bob Dunn was absolutely great. I have traded Futures for 10 years and I learned more in one week than the previous 10 years. Bob Dunn is a great teacher and I look forward to taking the Futures Signature class from him. Bob Dunn brings his background as a floor trader right into the classroom.”
