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.

I really enjoyed being in his Futures class, along with my fellow students who were also great; it made for a fun and fruitful week! Thank you, Bob and OTA. Shout out to Erika and Chelsea too.

“It's been said that Jesse Livermore was the greatest trader of his era. Well, I would have to say that Bob Dunn is currently one of the greatest traders of the modern era. Not only is he a great trader, he is by far one of the best OTA instructors! He is very skilled at teaching and explaining the OTA material in very systematic and organized fashion that students can relate to. As a former Floor Trader in Chicago, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. I would highly recommend any course that is taught by Bob Dunn. ”

“Bob is an Expert! He is a giving instructor. He gave so many great examples that the book examples became extremely clear. He constantly reminded us not to break the rules and to abide by the trading rules. To always put STOPS in our trades and recognize that trading is rule base. The trend line has become more meaningful as well. He is extremely patient in that sometimes the same person would ask the same questions in so many different ways. I am definitely going to take his class in the future.”

“Bob's knowledge is second to none. I've really enjoyed Bob's class. The way he implements his personal trading experience, successes and failures with the course materials hit home. Bob is extremely knowledgeable, but more importantly, sincere to his students. Thank You, Bob.”
