Paul Itterly has seen Wall Street from the inside as an intern at a major wealth management firm and an invited guest at leading investment banks where he literally saw what was happening behind closed doors. He spoke with economists at the Federal Reserve and walked the live trading floor at Deutsche Bank. Now he shares this experience as an Online Trading Academy instructor.

Through his college studies and personal experience Paul became passionate about trading, and joined the Mastermind Community soon after he graduated. He loves the camaraderie in which experienced traders share their ideas and techniques based on our Core Strategy, as well as pitfalls so you don’t make the same mistakes.

As an Instructor, Paul encourages his students to understand the importance of having a trading plan and staying disciplined for consistent results.

“As a person very new to trading, I had my doubts about starting any trading classes. After this first Core Strategy class, I’ve gained so much knowledge! This was the best class ever, and I feel it gave me a very solid starting point to go into trading and crave to learn more by attending the Forex specialty course. Paul is an amazing teacher and trader! He delivered all the needed information in such a way that a 5-year-old would understand! By the end of the class, the process was completely embedded in my mindset. From now on, it’s practice, practice, and more PRACTICE! Thank you Paul and OTA!!!”

I owe that all to Paul Itterly, he is the best. He took me from not knowing anything to knowing a whole lot. Anything I accomplish I owe all to him. He deserves a raise!!!!”
