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's training sessions were like learning with fun. He makes the difficult looking topic very easy to understand & apply. With his sessions, I feel that I can now see the Market with completely different view which is very easy.”

“The Instructor (Kartik Manek) has indeed done a stupendous job in driving home the concepts and the process of trading. Mr Behzad & Kartik are a good combination.”

“Having fully understood the fundamentals of trading, I am now confident of executing trades as soon as I become familiar with the trading platform. For this, I would give full credit to Kartik for having drilled down the key concepts in an easily understandable manner that involved usage of common analogies and live trades. He was ably supported by Behzad who always went out of his way to ensure all students were up to speed with understanding the concepts, many of which were alien to us.”

“I rate Mr. Kartik Manek very high. What impressed me is his commitment and his positive attitude. Due to him, I find change coming in me on knowledge, skill and behavioral fronts. I want to attend his retake classroom session in February 2019 also.”

“It's been a great experience. Instructor explained very clearly. The Core strategy is exhaustive covering the psychological, theoretical, process and practical aspects of correct trading. All aspects were explained very well in OTA training.”

“I have been trading since 2 years and experience is not so good. After taking this session, and especially Kartik's method of teaching, I can see many of my mistakes that could have saved me not only money but emotional disturbance also. Kartik is great at teaching and very good at fundamentals which is most important in this business. I really feel great that I have attended this and will strongly advise anyone who is passionate about trading.”
