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.

“The instructor was awesome. Scott McCormick was the best!”

, February 2019

“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.”
