Todd Davis discovered his passion for education while working as an Instructor at a global software education company. He started trading actively with a close friend as the millennium bubble started to burst and, like many people, struggled to succeed using conventional techniques while watching investments languish. It was not long before he decided to take action and actually learn how to trade properly. Through a referral from a friend he found Online Trading Academy and began the journey of becoming a professional trader.

As a student of the science of trading, Todd believes that a trader’s fastest path to consistent profitability is to keep trading simple and scientific where supply, demand, trend, and participation are the most critical elements of properly recognizing opportunity and risk. Having actively traded and consulted for nearly a decade in equities and Forex, Todd maintains that the key to success is strict adherence to a proven trading methodology, defined rules, tight risk management, and a positive approach regardless of account size, experience or the asset class one trades. Today he is a skilled momentum trader, swing trader and passionate trading coach for Online Trading Academy. Todd's teaching style creates one of the most dynamic and interactive classroom experiences students will encounter at Online Trading Academy. To say the least, a day of class with Todd is truly a trading and learning adventure!

“The class was exceptional. It was my first futures class. Todd Davis has the right focus at the right time. Whether it's your first or repeat, he taught and emphasized an expanded knowledge of core strategy so we can see zones in the proper context. I'm quite sure that no matter what one's student level was, they found real value in his training. That, and many other lessons were greatly appreciated by the class. This was emphasized by the responses, as he lead participation in each person sharing aloud their valuable "ah-ha" gem at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions. We learned a great deal from our peers as well as through various trading exercises.”

“Todd Davis is an amazing teacher and man. His compassion for everyone in class to learn core strategy and how to apply it to a chart is impeccable. The way he shares his knowledge and use of OTA's strategy and resources gives students an understanding of price movement and why trades work or fail. Todd's classes will have a positive impact on any students or traders that are willing to learn.”
