Although Robert Dummar has taught and inspired thousands of students, he came to the trading profession completely by accident. A neighbor introduced him to the markets and he became fascinated by the financial industry. He set as his lifelong goal to master the skills that make top traders successful and profitable, and now he shares those skills as an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

Robert has a unique teaching style which appeals to novices as well as experienced traders. He believes that even the most complex concepts can be presented in a way that is interesting and easy to understand. He encourages questions and wants to make sure students are comfortable with a topic before he moves on.

Robert believes that “once a student, always a student.” Every day he learns something new but he always comes back to OTA’s core strategy because it “works unbelievably well and when applied correctly, is a game changer for all who understand it.”
