Online Trading Academy

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 Scott 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.

“Scot is very knowledgeable and seems to truly enjoy teaching the OTA courses. He is very patient with those of us who are totally new to taking responsibility for protecting our financial investments and assets! I appreciate his guidance and ability to give attention to each of us, yet allow us to test our "wins" of what we grasp, absorb and practice in class daily.”
