David Warner grew up a stone’s throw from New York’s financial district, and knew from an early age he wanted to become a trader. He started trading in 2004 and joined a stock trading club in college, leading to what he calls a “healthy obsession” with the financial markets.

David developed a focused and disciplined attitude in the Air Force, where he was not only the most awarded Airman on his base but also a trainer and educator. After leaving the service he became a broker at a Forex broker, where he managed relationships with top-level clients and institutions. He joined us as an Education Counselor in 2013, and swiftly distinguished himself for his ability to match students’ needs with their learning opportunities.

All of David’s experience came into play when he became an Online Trading Academy instructor. He believes that wealth is a mindset that can be taught, along with the skills to think and trade like a bank and financial institution.

“OTA hires the GREATEST instructors, hands down!! When God created David Warner, he knew he was creating a Forex BEAST! David's kindness and patience and attention to detail is that of what you would expect from a professional Instructor. He is the man, he is a beast, he's an ANIMAL! Great guy overall and never has anything bad to say. David alone is worth the $35K my father paid for me / us to learn.”

“David Warner's Forex class is unique to the other OTA classes. His strategies overlay with OTA core strategy, but they offer a unique approach that appears to work very well. He steps the class through this approach hour by hour, day by day and patiently addresses each class member's questions. I highly recommend David's Forex class.”

“David Warner is fully knowledgeable about the FOREX Subject. He is fully engrossed in this market, continually researches for new knowledge and ways to profit and passes this knowledge to the student. He holds nothing back, and encourages us to use external information sources that can give guidance to market direction and items that affect FOREX. I found nothing lacking in his effort to help the student learn, understand, and to profit from the spot currency market.”

“David was an excellent instructor for the Forex class. He not only demonstrated his personal knowledge and trading skills regarding this asset class but throughout the week he gave us insights and trade keys that he has gleaned from decades of trading forex. I felt that I was learning from one of the giants of forex trading.”
