Scott Leitzell

Georgia, USA

Coming out of the Air Force, Scott went to school for finance and got a job on Wall Street. He transitioned to a career as a full-time trader and realized he spent so much time answering other people’s questions on trading that he should make it his profession. That led to his dream job, as an instructor at Online Trading Academy.

Scott believes that success in anything happens when opportunity meets preparation. It doesn’t matter what your background, if you have the right attitude and education you can approach trading and investing with skill and confidence.
