After attending college and law school in his native Jamaica, Randy Ledgister moved to the United States. He became interested in trading and soon after became a student of Online Trading Academy. He was impressed by OTA’s commitment to its students, worldwide brick and mortar campuses and its strong sense of community.

Randy was Student Support Manager for the New York center before becoming an Online Trading Academy Instructor, so he understands the challenges facing new traders and investors. He draws on his experience as a trader to encourage and motivate his students, and spends as much time as is necessary to ensure they understand the concepts taught in class.

Randy believes success is not just what you accomplish in life, but what you inspire others to do.

What Students Are Saying

“Very knowledgeable, patient & helpful with all his students.”

, January 2020

“Randy was excellent in delivering the Core Strategy with a very comfortable pace. He does not have an ego that some lecturers have, when half the time is spent talking about themselves. He hardly spoke about himself but would use his mistakes as a convenient example and move on to the meat of the topic straight away. He is an excellent and compassionate teacher. Bravo!”
