After working as a football coach, airline pilot and broker, Kelly Boycks started trading on his own account in 2010. He soon discovered Online Trading Academy's supply and demand trading strategy and was so enthusiastic that he became an Instructor.

In his classes, Kelly draws on his extensive brokerage experience to give students a clear picture of the professional on the other side of the trade, and what they need to do in order to avoid novice mistakes. He balances technical tactics with common sense and stresses the need for patience and a market-tested trading plan.

He says he loves to see the insights that his students develop as they learn to apply the patented strategy with success—“the moment when frustration becomes astonishment is priceless!”

“There is a small group of teachers whom I've admired over the course of my life, and Kelly Boycks is right up there with the best of them. I really appreciate the fact that he followed the curriculum exactly, and worked with EVERYONE individually whenever necessary to make sure he was understood completely and in as much depth as that particular student could absorbed.”

“Kelly's instruction was very informative and delivered in a calm and clear fashion. I enjoyed his teaching style and took a lot away from the class as a result. In general, I am impressed with all the instructors I have met at OAT so far, and this class lit a fire in me to learn trading intimately and I look forward to my next Asset Class week.”

“Kelly is extremely knowledgeable and brings real life stories to illustrate trading scenarios. He made me feel that he did truly care about my understanding as we went through the week.”

“The course was very informative, taught me way more than I originally expected. The instructors were very patient with how the class went. As a student, I can feel that he is never annoyed by a question, and always more than willing to answer and give out even more information based on the question.”
