Wayne Citron began his trading career nearly 40 years ago on the now-defunct Mid America Exchange. He began trading on CBOT in 1981 and purchased a membership there in 1983. Throughout his long career he has traded a wide variety of assets while specializing in financial futures.
Wayne has also worked as a professional photographer—a profession which, like trading, requires personal discipline and attention to detail. His students can expect to learn how to combine Online Trading Academy's patented trading strategy with real-life challenges and opportunities.
As an Online Trading Academy Instructor, Wayne tells his students that trading is a marathon, not a sprint, and each day is a new opportunity to succeed and put aside any past disappointments.
