After earning his double Master’s degree, Kartik Manek began investing in the equity markets with the goal of mixing fundamentals with technical analysis. Then he came to Online Trading Academy and discovered the power of a simple, rules-based strategy focused solely on price action.

As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, Kartik is guided by a single, powerful thought: Follow a disciplined mechanical trading process and look for big profits and small losses. The law of probability will make one a profitable trader. He advises his students to utilize a systematic plan that will eventually help them achieve their financial goals.

Kartik believes the reason so many people fail in trading is because they cannot give up on their ego. His personal “Why” is to influence his students’ lives for the better by teaching well, so he can be content in his own life.

What Students Are Saying

“Kartik had been extremely cordial with everyone and took us through the various steps again and again that would help at least me to start practicing trading with confidence and clarity. It was not only excellent but beyond expectations.”

“Being a professional orthopedic surgeon, challenges fascinate my nature and personality. It was my primary reason to take full subscription of OTA along with wealth creation for myself and family. A good start always keeps you ahead in the walk of any new venture in life. On-site Core Strategy class by Kartik Manek has helped me and hopefully all attendants to understand and apply the knowledge for future trading. He is an amazing person as well as instructor.”

“It was excellent. The instructor has started with very basic and made every step crystal clear to us. He has repeated the lessons until we said that we have (delete) clearly understand and also given unique analogies for better understanding. Instructor was also clear about what was and what was not to be taught at this stage. Especially we were taught the psychological part which is the most important factor during trading. The instructor has changed my view towards trading after these classes.”

“The course has been very educative and the technique used by OTA is very unique, simple and effective. The instructor (Kartik Manek) has been phenomenal in his teaching, guiding and explaining the concepts. He guided us in each step and uplifted the confidence in entering the world of trading. With the help of OTA an illiterate trader like me is going to enter and enjoy the world of trading. Thanks for being so professional and on-point.”

“Before coming for the course I had minimal knowledge of stock market, but after attending the course I feel I am very confident with the working of stock markets and the strategy of trading. It might seem difficult at first but the course will be a cake walk if you have amazing instructor as mine. I would recommend the undergrad students to do the course as early as possible and start earning some money during the college days.”
