Clifton Miller became interested in trading as a student at Georgia State University, where he was exposed to a curriculum including the derivatives markets and the trading strategies used by hedge funds and investment banks. His research led him to Online Trading Academy, where he became a student in 2010 and an Instructor in 2015.

After completing his Pro Trader class, Clifton gravitated to the Forex markets and also worked in Student Support at the Atlanta campus. His advanced knowledge and experience and his ability to solve problems one-on-one are now available to his students.

Clifton loves teaching in an environment where instructors, Education Counselors and support staff work together to help students achieve their goals, as students from diverse backgrounds learn how to successfully trade the financial markets.

“Clifton Miller's demeanor was perfect for teaching this course. He was thorough while also being thoughtful and exceedingly patient with having to repeatedly go back through instructions step-by-step. Learning a trading platform as robust as Tradestation (TS) can be very tedious, but Clifton injected plenty of humor to keep things moving smoothly, and to keep our attention from drifting. He also provided plenty of practical examples of how to use TS features within the context of executing the key steps associated with Core Strategy. Great job, Clifton! Great job, OTA!”

“Clifton Miller is a great instructor who teaches the material at a great pace so that students are well informed and structured to be more disciplined traders. I can truly see that trading and being profitable is possible and I am glad to be a part of his class. The only regret is that I wish I had taken his course sooner.”
