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.

“This class is one of the best experiences I have had with OTA over my 10 years of association with the school. Mr. Dunn's experience and ability to turn the complex into understandable and APPLICABLE strategies is amazing. Notwithstanding his extraordinary personal financial success, he is nice, humble, caring, and funny - all of which add to unmatched credibility within the OTA instructor ecosystem.”

“The class was great. Bob taught things not in books & not translatable to canned course slides. Real techniques used by a seasoned pro with decades in the trenches. He went over things multiple times & was patient & always responded to questions. It was a fabulous experience. ”

“Bob Dunn's Signature Class, "Riding the Wave", is a must catch. Real-time trades, setups for precise order entries, and position management scaling into your "winners" in the markets was magic. Like "The Lady in the Box" talking to you from your GPS Navigation System, it's brain dead simple knowing where you're wrong in a trade and managing it. Pit parables from the trading floor, some hard knocks loss lessons, and his insights into the trading psychology of the markets made Bob's class a great experience.”
