Tom Jenkins developed an acute awareness of supply, demand and how to find value through his career as a business owner. He became interested in the financial markets after watching so many people struggle through the 2008 recession. He sought out professional training, and ultimately became an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

In class, Tom shares his lifetime of buying and selling to help students connect their everyday experiences with a simple market plan. He focuses on risk management, capital preservation and the importance of preparation and following a rules-based trading plan.

As a full-time futures trader, Tom enjoys the freedom and independence that a successful life in trading affords. He is generous in sharing his perspective outside of class as well, through his contribution to the OTA Mastermind community.

“I would definitely recommend OTA to anybody who wants to learn trading. The course content is very thorough yet easy to understand. My instructor, Tom Jenkins, was amazing!! He took the time to make sure everyone completely understood all the concepts he taught. He also used real life situations to make the coursework easier to understand. Definitely worth the money and I can't wait to further my education.”
