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 has a genuine approach to make everyone feel comfortable to ask questions and truly understand the content presented in Forex. Personally, I feel confident in the things I've learned in his class by the way he taught them to us.”

“I initially took the Forex course two years with Mr. Clifton Miller as the instructor. Mr. Miller presented the course materials then thoroughly, provided good instructions for the course material and often expanded the course material to aide beginning students. As good as Mr. Miller was two years ago I believe he is really hitting his stride as an excellent teacher helping beginning students with superb course material additional tools artfully excellent so they are relatively easy to understand and use and he interjects feedback from everyday students as to their trials and challenges with their initial attempts to trade Forex. As such he adds the human touch to help build student confidence so they will successfully move forward when the course is initially complete (as the course is a lifetime of learning) but more important to know where to look for help as they move forward with their education and trading through OTA.”
