James Golby’s father, who was an Online Trading Academy student himself, enrolled James in the program when he was just 19 years old. James enjoyed the experience so much, in 2019 he became an instructor so he could pass on the knowledge and benefits of trading to others.

James enjoys swing trading the FX markets using the big picture and also day trades the Futures markets. His philosophy is that having the right attitude, discipline and consistency is everything, both for trading and for daily life. He also believes you never stop growing and learning as a trader, investor or as a person.

James’ students can expect to come away with an understanding of the Core Strategy that includes detailed rules to guide their trade decisions and increase probability. He strives to instill confidence in his students and to give them a solid understanding of price action taught the OTA way.
