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.

Having seen the dark side of human nature as a police detective, she appreciates the opportunity she had as an OTA student to achieve financial independence through active trading. She feels nothing is more satisfying than to pay it forward and empower others to repeat her own learning and success. 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.

What Bobbie likes most about trading is the freedom it gives her to spend time with her two young daughters. She hopes to teach them to trade so they can pursue their dreams, create financial freedom and have a lasting impact on the world.
