Edmond Gutknecht fell in love with trading at the age of 16, and this passion led him to be hired as one of the first support specialists at the OTA Atlanta campus. Working with and helping over a hundred students overcome their limitations, he became acutely aware of the challenges new traders face. Now that he is an Online Trading Academy Instructor, he teaches students how to anticipate and deal with those same challenges.

Edmond teaches a process-oriented methodology that rewards trade consistency rather than trade outcome. He focuses on the true art of trading and shines light on many of the psychological market traps traders find themselves in. He leads by example, continually improving his own techniques, and communicating his success to students to motivate them in their trading.

Edmond considers trading “the fulfillment of a dream” and enjoys sharing his enthusiasm so that his students will not only become profitable in the markets, but have a good time while they are developing their skills.
