Paul Orme has been involved in the financial markets since 1978, as an investor and since 2000, as a trader. As an executive in software firms supporting hedge funds, investment advisors, banks and insurance companies, he learned how professionals approach the market and develop their edge.

He has 12 years of experience working abroad in Hamburg, Germany, Tokyo, Japan, and in London, England, where he held executive management responsibilities for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and was in charge of revenue growth and profitability in over 20 countries. These experiences add another dimension to his understanding and desire to assist others in their quest for knowledge and success in the financial markets. He is passionate about training each student to think as a professional trader and to develop a unique trading approach which is geared to their own style and personality. Paul believes that each student should not only focus on developing trading skills, but must also gain an education to develop strategies to achieve their retirement goals.

Paul believes that Online Trading Academy provides the premier experience for developing trading and wealth management skills and confidence. The four distinct aspects critical to becoming an educated trader and investor are the cornerstones of his approach as an Instructor: 1) psychology, 2) technical analysis, 3) trading platform proficiency, and 4) dealing with probability. Paul stresses the need to explore the psychological factors that can make or break a trader, and that one must understand and think in terms of probability and risk containment. His goal is for his students to develop the discipline and confidence needed to be successful.

“I have never been able to understand how options work until I took this class. Our instructor explained calls and puts and bearish and bullish in a way that was understandable. He used many stories and examples that helped me see and understand options better. The stories and examples also helped me remember what I learned.”

“Paul Orme was very detail oriented. Options is a complicated subject with lots of moving parts. Completing this course, I feel very confident that I have a solid understanding of the basics and am ready to move on to the more complicated strategies.”

“Paul Orme is very detailed and precise. He is willing to repeat till we all get it. So we repeated: with him showing us, us doing it, us doing it together, us showing him, and answering our questions over and over, with patience and humor. He knew that we learn at different speeds in different ways. Light bulbs went off at different rates and times for different people. He was patient with this. He generally waited till we all got something before continuing on to next subject. And yet we covered everything, even labs and homework. Not all teachers did this. Kudos! I hope you have him back at this center soon so I can enjoy the experience all over again, in a new light with new understanding.”
