Eric Moles is a lover of the outdoors and tried a variety of adventure jobs before discovering trading. He enjoys the freedom that trading offers, allowing the investor to work and live anywhere with an internet connection. Now he shares his enthusiasm for the markets as an Online Trading Academy instructor.
Eric was self-taught initially, in the school of hard knocks before receiving an invitation from OTA and taking the Pro Trader class in 2007. He first traded gold futures, then, as he accumulated assets, added stocks and options to his portfolio and skillsets. He believes slow and steady wins the race and rewards the investor who has self-discipline and a rules-based strategy.
Students in Eric’s classes will take away the belief that patience, persistence and perfect practice can develop a skill that will benefit them the rest of their lives. As someone who has been in their shoes as a beginning trader, he invests the time to make sure the concepts are understood.
