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.

“I really enjoyed this class from beginning to end. The instructor is pretty straightforward and engaged a lot with us, the student. One of the most valuable things about taking a class with David is that your questions will be answered regardless of how difficult/long they are. Would definitely recommend anyone else to take his class.”

“David Warner is a very patient instructor with a great teaching style. He knows how to explain strategies in a variety of different ways to understand better the strategy. I would definitely need to re-take his class because I know that each time I re-take a class from an instructor I enjoy, I seem to learn more details on the strategy. Please keep David nearby for future classes, especially in the Woodland Hills campus. Thank you, OTA, for bringing to us great instructors.”
