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.

What Students Are Saying

“As a younger student I've really enjoyed my time in core strategy and can't wait to learn more in my other classes. A couple things I've really enjoyed is that the instructor gave multiple examples on things we didn't understand. Also, they didn't mind if you interrupted them to ask a question and explained it detail by detail until the person or class got it. Steve is an amazing instructor and I'm sorry to anyone who doesn't have the chance to be taught by him. YOUR A1 STEVE!!!!!!”

“Coming into the Core Session, I had a lot of reservations at first. However, my instructor, Stephen Hanahoe, not only explained the material clearly and concisely, but answered every question I had with great insight. I highly recommend the core class.”

“Although it seemed like a lot of information and confusion at first, I had a great time learning core strategy at OTA. Steve was a fantastic instructor who did a great job balancing learning and trading, which helped me build up my skills. We traded live for 2 -3 hours every day and with the help of Steve and Arthur, I was able to put the skills I learned to the test, and overall it was a great and fun experience. ”
