As a Registered Representative with Charles Schwab & Co. Inc., Scott McCormick was involved in assisting clients execute equity and equity option trades.

In 2001, Scott began swing trading equities and equity options. After some losses, and making what appeared to be common investing mistakes, Scott decided to educate himself about technical analysis. During his studies through the Market Technicians Association, Scott found the world of Forex trading which was quickly added to his portfolio.

During his time as a Financial Consultant, Scott helped high net worth clients strategize, implement, and manage equity, mutual fund, and bond portfolios. When the bear market of 2007-2008 hit, Scott quickly realized that his investment philosophy did not match that of the financial services industry; leading him in 2009, to the opportunity to begin a career as an Instructor.

In his classes at Online Trading Academy, Scott teaches his students the use of technical analysis to identify high probability trading opportunities controlled with proper risk management.
