Bobbie Sheils is a retired NYPD detective and owner of a business specializing in financial investigation and compliance. As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, she trains her students to be chart detectives and find the evidence of upcoming price reversals and trading opportunities.

She was an OTA student who sought financial education through active trading. She feels nothing is more satisfying than to pay it forward and empower others to repeat her own learning experience. In her classes, she imparts the importance of discipline, commitment and following the plan. She is skilled at taking complex financial concepts and making them easy to understand and apply.

Bobbie looks forward to sharing her knowledge of the markets with her children.
