Scott McCormick CMT
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

What Students Are Saying
“I took this course in order to get more clarity about how to handle my long term investments. My expectations were met completely, primarily because of the clear approach to stock selection but also because it helped answer many risk management questions I had, such has how to manage positions during earnings. The knowledge I have gained from the course about stock selection will also be invaluable in my shorter term Options trading.
Scott presents the material very clearly, is passionate about his subject and answers all questions thoughtfully and patiently. His analysis of each real time trading opportunity using core strategy was extremely helpful, especially as he focused on fully understanding each trade in the context of the bigger picture time frames.”
“Scott was a very thorough instructor. His deep knowledge of chart technical analysis and engaging teaching style made the presentation of the information clear and concise.”
“My experience with trading is having a 401K. After taking this class I understood a lot more about the financial markets and how applying Core Strategy can improve my chances of success when trading. Thank you to Scott McCormick who broke down the process in a clear and concise manner while sharing his personal experience and, on occasion, adding his intentionally dry humor :-).”
“Not only me, but the whole core strategy class made a huge step during the 7 days with Scott McCormick. It was great to work with an instructor who has a professional trader background.”
“Being new to trading and not knowing what to expect or what I would learn, Scott was truly amazing!!! I left every day looking forward to the next day's lessons... His passion and delivery kept you engaged the whole time. Because of this class and Scott's teachings, I'm more excited about trading than I was going into it.”
