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 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.

“The Instructor's temperament was very appealing to my learning style. Scot Stokes demonstrated a passion for what he does in a very caring manner. He answered the students' questions in a very respectful manner. Patti was very supportive and attentive to the students' needs. It was obvious she was personally concerned about giving support and mentioned several time she is also a student. I am excited about Clik Trade Builder. It will be of tremendous help in scoring my Trades.”

“I really enjoyed the program and I understood everything that the instructor Scot Stokes taught us in class. I really appreciate that he uses the same strategy that he was teaching us, and he really was patient and answered all our questions without leaving a stone unturned. I am excited about going home and using this strategy now and have a lot more confidence with what he has taught us in class.”

“Scot gave very clear instruction, clear steps, and was willing to go back and review key information if it looked like someone missed a key point. We were repeatedly reminded that forecasts are just that: forecasts. With each piece of new information, your forecast readjusts. Following the rules carefully puts the odds in our favor. I would love to be writing this testimonial a year out, so I truly know how successful I will have been, but I am confident that I can ride the financial waves and will not be at the mercy of what the market decides to do to my retirement accounts and mutual funds.”
