Jamie Guenther began his career in accounting, then became a research analyst at a Chicago investment firm. He steadily rose in his profession over the next 30 years, designing risk-based trading processes and training teams in their use. He is ideally suited to teach Core Strategy as an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

The most important thing for students, Jamie believes, is for them to get moving, practicing the strategies they came to learn. Only through experience will you recognize your strengths and weaknesses and how to identify and adjust your built-in biases.

Jamie’s students can look forward to an efficient and effective classroom environment, thanks to his many years devoted to mentoring new traders over a number of investment cycles. He likes to stress the importance of risk management, always encouraging students to take calculated risks that have a high probability of success.

What Students Are Saying

“Our Instructor, Jamie, was very knowledgeable and patient with all of us. No matter where you were in the learning process he was able to connect with you and help you make sense of it and move on or repeat the process again. I feel confident that I can move on from core strategy into forex.”

“Jamie Guenther was an exceptional instructor. He gave us tools that will help us not only during this week but further in our trading experiences. I remember writing down every nugget he gave us because I knew I might not understand it now, but later (over a few months) it will be a key part to my success with trades.”

“I really enjoyed Jamie Guenther's style of instructing. He was very detailed on the Core Strategy, while moving the class quickly into the real time trading. I very much appreciated this because I feel like I was able to ask a lot of questions that I would not have been able to ask had we not traded.”

“After taking the class I feel far more comfortable with the terminology and concepts. The live trading sessions were amazing in decreasing anxiety and providing hands on training. I am super glad I actually came to the physical class, it was necessary for my learning style. Thank you, Jamie, my instructor, for being so engaging and knowledgeable about the craft.”

“Mr. J. Guenther is one of the excellent instructors. He made the most difficult subject very enjoyable and easy to learn. OTA is very lucky to have him. Highly recommended class for anyone who is just starting to learn to become an investor. He is also willing to help any students even after the class is over, by providing future contact. He is great mentor.”
