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.

What Students Are Saying

“Core Strategy by OTA and Paul Itterly was Outstanding information. The instructor used his personal experience combined with proven Core Strategy skills to make learning easy to follow. He slowed the pace down so that everyone could comprehend, also while giving advanced learners the opportunity to move forward with their learning. Great Job, Paul.”

“I really enjoyed my Core Strategy Class with Paul Itterly. He not only covered the Core Strategy course (which is a mandatory class that all new students must take before taking other coursesoffered by Online Trading Academy) but also provided additional information that only comes with experience. Paul was patient and always answered our questions no matter how trivial. I especially liked the last 2 days when we practiced Real Time Market trading with tools that were provided. The Real Time Market trading, I believe, is critical to building confidence in trading on my own.”
