Stephen experienced the volatility of the world economy first hand during the booming “Celtic Tiger” era in Ireland. He worked in construction and, due to increasing demand, he was soon the owner of his own construction company. Then the Irish economy slowed and entered a supply zone and he decided to focus directly on the financial markets as a trader.

As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, Stephen Hanahoe brings a huge passion for trading which he gladly shares with his students. He is a strong believer in money management and rules-based trading and constantly emphasizes the importance of an attractive risk-reward ratio before entering a position.

A specialist in Forex and futures, Stephen promises that students who take his class will be taught in depth the OTA professional approach to trading, chart analysis and price action.

“The strategy shared with us is amazing! The probability of placing a successful trade using the analytical process that Online Trading Academy teaches us has increased my confidence as a future trader. Stephen Hanahoe was the best instructor for Core Strategy. He was so thorough in reviewing the process. He was very patient when explaining. He trained us in the mechanics of trading, which was great. However, he also emphasized the psychological and emotional barriers we may encounter and how to challenge them to be successful in trading. He was inspirational and energetic, and I believe he authentically cares about our success.”
