John has been a trader for nearly 30 years, starting while he was still in college. Through most of his career he was a floor trader in oil and gas futures, and he has also worked as an “EDF Man” specializing in natural gas commodities.

As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, John Rowland offers priceless real world experience that helps his student see the big picture of economic conditions and how they translate into low risk, high potential trading opportunities. He believes there is always an opportunity in the futures market for traders who do their homework.

John’s favorite moment as a teacher is “watching the light bulb come on in my students’ eyes” when they understand how supply and demand can translate into winning trades.
