Eric Moles is a lover of the outdoors and tried a variety of adventure jobs before discovering trading. He 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 stocks, then added options and futures to his portfolio and skillsets. He believes slow and steady wins the race so investors need to have self-discipline and a rules-based strategy.

Students in Eric’s classes will take away the belief that patience, persistence and perfect practice are the constant companions of the educated trader. As someone who has been in their shoes as a beginning trader, he invests the time to make sure the concepts are understood.
