Online Trading Academy

Evan started trading his last year in high school and went down a rabbit hole of seminars and trading books which produced inconsistent results. He then came to Online Trading Academy to learn more about how banks and institutions trade the markets. He became more effective in his trading and also found that designing trades was simplified.

As an Online Trading Academy instructor, Evan believes trading is a business of probabilities and patience. Identifying where the banks and institutions are trading provides logical entry and exit points. Then, students can wait for price to come to them so the trade can play out; this is when patience is especially important.

Students who take a class with Evan can expect to have key concepts presented in a clear and simple way and re-explained, if necessary. His goal is to build a strong foundation to build on as students move to advanced courses. His “why” is teaching these principles to students and also his own family so they can enjoy financial flexibility.
