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.

What Students Are Saying

“Excellent information, instructor was a subject matter expert and very entertaining!”

, January 2019

“Trading futures has become my passion and Bob Dunn's futures class here in Irvine has given me the ability to trade successfully making larger amounts of money on higher time frames rather than focused on the lower time frames. He reminded me over and over again of the value of risk management applying the principles taught at Online Trading Academy. His teaching style, solidified through his own personal experiences, makes him a wonderful instructor with a sense of humor, so that I never got bored throughout the class.”

“Bob's "classroom manner" was friendly and knowledgeable. Every question asked was addressed in a respectful manner and there were "no dumb questions". I really appreciate that attitude, especially from one who has so much understanding and knowledge of the trading process. I have taken classes from others who don't show that kindness.”

“Bob Dunn is the real deal. He not only teaches the tools but he uses them in real time. His life experiences fit the course well. The best course I have taken at OTA.”

“Bob Dunn's class on Riding the Wave is an amazing experience. His ability to break down the markets utilizing his strategies and ways of looking at things, and explain it to a class is inspiring and motivating. Time to go "Fish"-ing while Riding the Wave!!”
