As a small business owner and entrepreneur, Scot Stokes always had a curiosity about the financial markets. When electronic trading expanded beyond the trading floors of New York and Chicago, he jumped in. Soon Scot was teaching a class in online trading and the use of screens to identify opportunities. That was when he discovered a new passion, teaching and assisting others in the development of their own trading skills.

Since he began teaching in 1999, Scot has taught thousands of students, including other Online Trading Academy instructors as well as former floor traders making the transition to online trading. He likes to say that “there is nothing more satisfying than the feeling that comes with helping others to achieve their dreams and goals.”

Students will benefit from Scot’s depth of electronic trading experience combined with his caring ability to convey the sometimes confusing trading concepts clearly and understandably.
