After graduating from the Online Trading Academy in 2006, Tillie Allison began to apply the rule-based core strategy to trade the financial markets. Tillie also gained trading experience working the trade desk at a futures firm. While working the trade desk, Tillie realized how reckless novice traders are, and how frequently novice traders lose money while professional traders make money. She specializes in asset allocation to manage a portfolio including Exchange Traded Funds (ETF), options, and futures. Tillie became an Online Trading Academy Instructor following the financial disruption of 2007. She is a passionate trader/instructor and teaches students how to identify low risk/high reward trades trading the rule-based core strategy. Tillie has always loved to teach and believes that everyone can overcome misfortunes and achieve goals. "Make your financial dreams a reality".

What Students Are Saying

“Tillie Allison makes the learning environment enjoyable because she is very professional, she has a sense of humor and has a lot of patience. She helps us all to be better students. Matt Roberts was also an excellent problem solver this week. Tillie couldn't have done it all herself. Neither Matt nor Tillie make you feel stupid for asking what you think are stupid questions.”

“My introduction into OTA through Matt McGrath was very impressive as to the quality person he was and to his presentation. I told my wife that if the organization was like this then we have a real shot at making a go of it. Well, my teacher met those expectations and then some. Tillie was just outstanding. Very patient, positive and just wonderful.”

“Awesome. She didn't miss a single question that was asked, "no student was left behind" (I mean she is from Texas ;)...was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and mixed heavy work with light fun. This is her niche and she's killing it.”

“Tillie was very informative, but most of all, very patient with all of us!!”

, June 2019

“As somebody who didn't have a clue what the stock market consisted of, much less macro-economics, Tillie was able to explain the techniques required to evaluate and participate in trading various markets. Although at times there was sensory overload, she would break it down and make it much more palatable. Tillie's enthusiasm for the profession comes through in her excitement when we started to grasp a concept and then understood it. I will recommend this course to a lot of people, including sending some of my family members.”
