Steve Misic began his career in the financial services industry in the 1990's working for various insurance and retail brokerage firms serving clients in the equities, Forex, and commodities futures markets.

Steve became a mentoring student of Sam Seiden's in the early 2000's, after being introduced to him by a mutual friend. As someone who has traded using the Online Trading Academy core strategy for several years, his approach as an Instructor will focus the class on learning how to identify demand and supply levels, and how and when to trade these levels in regards to the primary trend of the market for swing and position traders. Steve applies these rules to the equities and equity options markets, the index and commodity futures markets and to the treasury and currency futures markets.
