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!”
