Michael Hamilton was introduced to trading by his father, who told him he needed to be aware of what was going on in the financial markets and the world. As an adult he came to OTA in 2004 to get a proper trading education and has been trading his own account ever since.

As an Online Trading Academy instructor, Michael tells his classes to have a set of rules and follow them at all times. Also important is risk management and adhering to the proper risk-to-reward ratio. A student who follows these two principles can be patient and wait for trades to come to them.

Michael’s goal is to help people change their lives by achieving financial, geographic and time freedom through trading. OTA prepared him to trade successfully, and now he is able to give back in return.
