Online Trading Academy

Sean Doyle started on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade right out of college, when a cousin connected him with a job as a runner. He steadily worked his way up until he purchased his own seat and partnered in a brokerage business. He applies this real world experience and perspective as an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

Sean tells his students that trading is like construction in that you need to learn to use the tools of the trade to make the most of your knowledge and the skills you already have. He believes perseverance and self-discipline are the keys to a successful trading career.

A student in Sean’s classes will build confidence to take trades in the correct locations and, more importantly, manage their risk for long-term success. This opens up the possibility for the benefit he likes most about trading: the ability to work on his own schedule and take time off whenever he wants. Sean has also worked on real estate projects as a sideline.
