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.

“Tom Jenkins is truly a student of trading. He has not spent his life doing it, but clearly has a grasp of the field. He is able to truly understand the learning side and the confusion the new student faces. He obviously understands the material and is able to present it in a way it can be understood. He also has a fantastic patience as an instructor for someone who also didn't spend his life as a teacher.”
