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.
