Todd Davis was one of the first members of Online Trading Academy's global expansion in 2005. Having earned a Bachelor of Science in Business he had spent several years searching for a good fit for his education in Finance, Accounting and Management. He found that fit when given the opportunity to open and lead the daily operations in trader and investor education for the Los Angeles, California campus of Online Trading Academy, which he continued to do for nearly a decade.
During his time leading the LA campus he became a skilled equities, forex, futures and options trader and found he also had a passion for educating other traders and investors. This led him to pursue attaining certification as an OTA Instructor. His ability to work directly with traders on a daily basis led not only to an acute understanding of the skills necessary to be successful as a trader, but he also learned precisely how people best learn to trade.
By 2013, having years of trading, teaching and collaborating experience to aid him, Todd helped Online Trading Academy's growing instructor team expand into over fifty major markets worldwide. Teaching globally in dozens of cities, states and countries has expanded his perspective of different cultures, people and methods of teaching and learning throughout the world.
As a passionate and highly sought after professional trading educator, Todd Davis continues to carry a vast skill set. He is currently a Master Instructor for the Academy as well as the Instructor Development Manager for Forex and Futures education worldwide. He is a key contributor to trading picks provided to traders around the world, a professional consultant to platform developers and programmers as well as a regular guest in Online Trading Academy's Extended Learning Track online trading and learning rooms and Mastermind Community.
