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.

“This dude is an excellent teacher!! He understands what it's like to absorb the immense amount of material; but, he presents it in a way that is palatable. My comment about the pace of the class is my own short comings......but it has begun to sink in because of Stephen's brilliant teaching method. Kudos to one of the best teachers I've experienced in my life; and, I'm 76 years young, and I've been taught by many. (Normally I refrain from superlatives, but I'm making an exception in this case).”
