After being accepted to the Graduate school, Josip Causic realized that most of his professors, his future role models and his mentors were financially insecure despite their extensive education. “Obtaining a doctorate certainly does not equal financial stability.” This realization caused him to change course from achieving an additional and higher academic degree into becoming financially literate.

Early on he realized that market psychology was a major part of trading, yet it was after an encounter with former market makers that he merged his retail trading experience with the methods used by floor traders. This gave him an immediate edge. At this juncture he came to Online Trading Academy for fine-tuning. He bought all the programs Online Trading Academy offered with the intention of becoming a member of the Instructor pool.

Josip is very excited to collaborate with Online Trading Academy, for he strongly believes in the MISSION OF TRANSFORMING LIVES. He has stated his firm belief that any student-trader who is both willing and open-minded enough to embark on a journey of personal growth through trading will mature beyond his wildest expectations. He goes on to conclude that those traders who are persistent enough to adapt to the constantly changing economic landscape will become examples for future young traders the world over.

In class, Josip uses his hands-on experience of options trading, both directional and volatility plays, to teach students to be successful traders. He particularly loves to focus on teaching the risk adverse options strategies, such as time spreads and Iron Condors.

What Students Are Saying

“The Options Trading class was fantastic! Josip Causic is a fantastic instructor who really did a great job of teaching us the basics of Options Trading. His years of trading experience along with being a great teacher made the complex world of Options understandable as well as making the class enjoyable. By the end of the week all of us were comfortable in identifying and placing option trades using the skills he taught us in the class. I would highly recommend OTA classes for people interested in learning to be a successful investor or trader.”

“Josip is SPECTACULAR! I had taken options with another company and was unclear on several aspects. He clarified issues that I had with the Greeks, taught me a better understanding of how to figure my risk, and evaluate my losses. Josip is engaging and kept us entertained, and made what can be a VERY dry and boring topic fun and exciting! Will DEFINITELY take his class again!”

“Josip Causic did an amazing job in this options class. His use of analogies, sense of humor and real life examples helped illustrate some of the more difficult concepts and provided positive energy throughout the week. He also adapted his teaching style according to each individual student's needs. This has truly been one of the best classes I have attended so far.”

“Josip Causic... Fantastic and engaging instructor. Most definitely will attend any classes he instructs! Really understands the content and the students by gauging their level of engagement and energy. The first class in my 3 years of training that I felt was too short! Thanks Josip! May God continue to bless you!”

“Josip Causic is the best instructor I have ever had. He was able to teach in a style that made the Options Trading Material approachable, and I learned so much each day. His organization each day covering planned topics, notes as we went, and recap of what we learned each day really helped my retention. He was a real master in presenting the OTA Course Materials and including examples from his personal trading and learned lessons. Each day, Josip lead us toward mastery of the points covered so that we were able to do something for ourselves. He covered making mistakes and what to do to correct. I cannot really tell you enough to cover how awesome he is as an instructor - you are missing out if you do not take his class. His style of teaching helped me feel excited about learning and getting into Options Trading each day, all the way to the end of his class - I never felt overwhelmed with his communication and loved his approach!”
