Kayla Christine is a product of Online Trading Academy. As a senior in College she took her first class with OTA in 2012. 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.
