Kayla Christine is a product of Online Trading Academy. As a senior in College she took her first class with OTA in 2011. Prior to OTA, Kayla knew very little about the world of finances, but after attending that first class, she truly fell in love with trading the financial markets. She quickly realized that mastering the skill of trading could unlock tremendous opportunities such as working anywhere she chose and freeing up her time to pursue other passions and, in her words, “to bless others with what I have been blessed with”. Kayla is a full time trader, primarily trading the futures markets.

Kayla is an inspiring Instructor with the passion to see the “learning light” go on for each and every one of her students. She has the unique ability to transform concepts which seem complex or confusing into simple and understandable information. Kayla’s focus on Core Strategy with emphasis on discipline and simplicity gives her students the confidence to know they can successfully trade the financial markets.

Kayla loves to travel, and has taken advantage of the freedom that comes with trading – being your own boss and trading from anywhere in the world. She considers herself a nerd in the world of math and puzzles. She loves soccer among other sports, and the Spanish language. She is happiest when she’s with her family and friends.

What Students Are Saying

“Patient instructor, with a well paced course that allowed me to really grasp the basic concept and understanding of trading. I went from knowing the word stocks and nothing else, to being able to identify supply, demand zones and putting them together to find unfilled orders.”

“I absolutely loved the online core strategy class. Kayla Christine did an outstanding job leading the class through all the steps required to learn core strategy and giving us a solid foundation to build upon in our own trading. My confidence level has reached an all time high and I can't wait to start implementing the strategy. What a wonderful experience!”

“I'm so glad I took this course online. The first time I took it in a (physical) classroom environment. It helped to hear the material again, but with a different instructor. Kayla Christine was awesome! She's a great teacher. She's highly motivated, knowledgeable, and really cares about the success of her students. OTA management should feel fortunate that Kayla is on staff. I have no doubt they do.”

“I just finished the MyOTA Online Core Strategy Class taught by Kayla. She is truly one of the best teachers I have had the privilege of taking a class from. Her demeanor is professional and she is very knowledgeable. Add in the fact that she blends humor and real-life experience into the class, makes it even more fun. She is respectful of the students' frustrations and varying levels of experience, and deals with each situation effectively. Evan, one of the support monitors, is also a pleasure to deal with. He, too, is patient and kind when dealing with frustrated students. Evan often offered work-arounds to problems that would pop up in the online class. I would highly recommend MyOTA to others interested in learning to trade. Their commitment to using quality instructors, support staff, and professional materials to educate their students is impressive. I plan to be a life-long student and become a great trader thanks to MyOTA.”

“I was highly impressed with the professionalism, care & attitude of the OTA Core Strategy class. The program was highly effective and used excellent tools for learning with education and practical labs to practice one's theory. My teacher was Kayla Christine whom I felt built excellent rapport with our class, encouraged and believed in us to pursue and not give up while offering hands-on assistance. A really valuable class and one which I am expecting to benefit from whilst embarking on this new venture. Thank you very much. ”
