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. His WHY is helping students realize their dreams through trading and investing in the markets.

“I am a novice in the world of trading. I was very nervous about making such a huge investment, but I know that trading is very rewarding, so I took the risk. To my satisfaction Randy Ledgister was my teacher. He was well-versed in his knowledge and he made it very simple for me. The pace was just right, and he took the time out to listen and help me understand the material. I am now less nervous than I was in the beginning and I'm hoping the other teachers I will have for my asset classes will not drop the ball.”
