Online Trading Academy
Chris Manson comes from a musical background and has been living out a childhood dream that has taken him all over the world with credits in film, television, and many artists of different styles of music since 1981. He was introduced to trading by a family member who is a professional trader in 2002, and it has become his second passion. Trading stocks, options and futures, Chris started out knowing just enough to make him very dangerous in the markets using the trial and error method of trading. His relative became his mentor and helped him overcome many mental obstacles and develop a trading plan, which he now knows is a key component for any trader. He mainly trades Futures and Options.
Chris got his start with Online Trading Academy in 2009, as he was searching for an opportunity to pass on his experience to others. He feels teaching allows him to not only help others, but also to stay sharp himself. As an Instructor, Chris likes to keep things very simple in the way he approaches the markets, and he likes to keep the class open and fun, creating a comfortable atmosphere for learning and asking questions.
