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

“In Austin, TX, I had Scott McCormick as my instructor. He went beyond all expectations. I was well educated; thanks to him my understanding is much more clear. Thank you, OTA, for all your resourses and support. I look foward to a bright future! A MILLION THANKS!”
“Great atmosphere to learn. Scott McCormick was a great instructor, was very firm and fair. He explained the core strategy in depth. Student support was very helpful and friendly and always there to answer any question I had.”
“I was very impressed with our instructor, Scott McCormick, with his experience level and knowledge. He presented the material to lay the ground work for success.”
“This is really more about the instructor than it is the program. Having had only limited exposure to trading, I was not sure what to expect or what kind of information I'd be exposed to entering this program. Having now completed the course, I honestly feel that I could not have had a more thorough or practical introduction to online trading - or the market in general - than I received from this course. Scott McCormick clearly possesses a huge wealth of knowledge and expertise, which he shared with the class in a very engaging, yet thorough, practical, and real-world manner. For my initial exposure to this type of coursework, I don't think I could have had a better, more knowledgeable or effective instructor. I honestly believe that whatever success I achieve point forward as a trader, will be as a direct result of my experience in this Core Strategy class with Scott!”
