Steve Moses has been an active options trader since 2004, when he was dragged to a trading workshop by his wife. Once he learned to trade, options immediately became his preferred strategy. Both the leverage, as well as the ability to profit regardless of what direction the markets were moving, are what attracted Steve to options.

Steve also has a passion for teaching others how learning to trade options can increase their ability to profit in the market. As a non-financial professional, he knows how intimidating it can be for some students sitting in class, because it wasn't that long ago he sat in the same seats as an Online Trading Academy student. Now that he is an Instructor, Steve takes pride in making sure every student not only learns about how options work, and the different strategies, but that they have fun in the process.

What Students Are Saying

“Steve Moses’ use of examples (coupons and insurance) really worked well for me relating to our daily application, which simplified my understanding of options.”

“The instructor, Steve Moses, knew the subject matter very well and was very friendly and patient with students. A very pleasant learning experience this week. I first took the options class in 2016. It taught more options trade strategies, but it seemed to overwhelm some of the other students who were newer to trading and/or options. This class (now Options 1) is better suited to teach those who are new to options trading. The OTA supporting staff was extremely friendly and helpful too.”

“The instructor is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and systematic in teaching the class. I was able to follow and expound my knowledge about options trading. With the knowledge and skill I gained, I can confidently say I can make this my career--trading.”

“Steve did an EXCELLENT job. I am regularly in his XLTs and Spotlight Sessions, so I made time in my schedule to attend a live class when I learned that he was going to be in San Diego. It was well worth it. He really made some very difficult concepts easier to wrap my brain around. He came with a lot of energy every day and made the class fun. Do yourself a favor and take Steve's class if you are an options student.”

, September 2019

“Steve Moses was born to teach options trading. Steve's acting background combined with his trading knowledge made for an entertaining week filled with trading skills that can prepare a novice to enter the world of options and propel the experienced options trader to newer heights.”
