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.

“I really enjoyed Steve's presentations. He explains concepts thoroughly, doesn't go too fast, and answers students' questions well. His humor and wit make it lively and interesting. At the same time, he makes sure students grasp the concepts. Steve walks through the class to confirm problems are resolved - computer misfires as well as individual student's understanding.”

“Steve certainly deserves his "Instructor of the Month" award. I especially liked that he shared with us the "Big Picture" of trading as well as correlated assets such as the relationships between currency, futures, options, etc. Nice music, too.”
