“OTA is an awesome organization. They truly care about the learning experience of the student. ”

“I consider trading a business, and Online Trading Academy as a franchise I bought into to show me how to excel at my business. I feel like they are showing me everything I need to be successful. Russ Griffin”

“Grateful to OTA for the new Core Strategy class. Really outlines what you need to follow for successful trading, step by step, including charts to follow (on laminated sheets you can keep by your computer. Nice job, OTA. And, at OTA they want you to succeed, and provide so many resources to help you along the way.”

“If you're humble enough to admit that you don't know as much as you think you know about trading, this will be one of the most gratifying educational experiences of your life.”

“We are so thankful for these classes. They will help us be more successful as we go into full retirement years. We have tried many different opportunities and were made many promises. This opportunity will be one we feel we can achieve. We have truly enjoyed the personal attention. Our instructor has been very helpful and attentive to our needs.”

“This review is coming from a person that knew nothing about the market prior to this class. This program is amazing, it's truly amazing preforming what is said in the class in the actual market. They take their time and go through the steps, and are fantastic at providing information in such a way that it is easily understandable. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate everything that has been taught in these classes so far and can't wait until the next class. James Buono”

“I just want to say that OTA is changing my life by the second! Thanks you all!”

“The training at OTA is the best training for those desiring to become a Trader. I have had classes in both stock and forex and all of the training is top notch. The instructors are extremely professional, work individually with students to increase their learning curve and get them trading as soon as possible. The follow-ups by the staff are exceptional. ”

“I had no knowledge of trading before OTA. Now I have the confidence that my trading career is going to be a rewarding and profitable journey.”

“A lifetime commitment is promised and delivered. That is the gold standard.”

“I am really grateful for the tremendous growth and knowledge I've gained over the past seven days. It's one of the best investments of financial education for a better financial future. Other participants were so helpful and encouraging. ”

“Great class. Really hit home of how to enter and exit trades at predictable times. Take a look at the larger "picture" and then focus down to your current time frame you wish to trade. Taught how to manage the trade whether doing better than expected, letting your profits run, yet protecting from backslide and, if market turns against you, to limit loss. Also taught how to manage your risk. Whether you have a lot of money or a little, you have to control your risk by the amount of money used per trade and overall outstanding trades. I highly recommend this class for rookies and seasoned traders.”

“Deep dive into becoming a professional trader. Without this class and organization my future was looking dim. One of the videos feature a movie star who was saying it is never too late in life to be successful. That statement is now true for me. I've been given the tools to be successful. The conservative approach to trading professionally takes the guess work out of the equation. I now have a plan and can use it for the rest of my life.”


“The staff at OTA Seattle are extremely helpful and care about the student's success. Also, Brandon Wendell is a great instructor.”

“I have been attending several OTA classes, from Futures to Options classes, and there has never been an occasion OTA missed any of my expectations. I sincerely appreciate OTA's continuous effort to provide the best education system, more and more effective for an individual trader to become a professional trader.”

“I've been interested in trading since becoming aware that it was a possibility for individuals. Other courses I've taken have simply been the framework to demonstrate the high value, verity and expertise offered through OTA. Thank you, OTA!”

“This is my first time taking the Forex class and I am very excited about online trading and the consistent support. I know that I have not soaked up every piece of information but I am content in knowing that I can always go into the XLTs, Core Strategies and Recorded Viewer to catch what I missed. I also learned that it is very valuable to stay in contact with your instructors and student support. The center has a quiet learning environment that helps you stay focused and on task. I always get the same parking spot every day because there is so much parking around the building. Personnel are not only friendly, but concerned and supportive of your progresses and bottom line.”

“OTA is a great place to learn about trading. It doesn't matter what level of a trader you are or where you're at in your trading life, OTA offers a variety of programs that will fit you.”

“All of the staff are so warm and friendly. They are eager to help the students with any questions or concerns that you may have at the center or with the program. They will provide you with additional phone numbers or contacts if needed as well. The center is kept very clean, located in a convenient area and has lots of parking. I am very gratified there is an organization like OTA that lifts the veil on Professional trading and makes success available to the individual. Thanks!”

“It is invaluable to have your trades evaluated by a true professional AND successful trader and to have him/her answer questions. I don't know how anyone can begin a trading career or trade at all without the resources offered by OTA. I've been blown away by how much is offered here - met and exceeded my expectations. Thank you! Looking forward to the many classes to come.”

“I came to OTA knowing nothing about finances. I am 73 years old and after my husband's death I had to learn. This school has proven to care about my needs and they continually work toward my success. Thank you OTA.”

“This program follows specific rules, regulations, policies and procedures. Learn them and follow them. Use the tools in My OTA to review and strengthen your skills. Get help when you are stuck and don't be afraid to reach out and ask.”

“Scot Stokes did a heck of a job teaching the OTA strategy and breaking it down in laymen's terms. Any question the class had Scot answered them in detail to make sure that we fully understood what we were doing. Also, leading up to the class Student Support Specialist, Nicole Gunning, was AWESOME. She called and sent emails to make sure that I was getting familiar with the criteria before I went into class. My journey here at OTA has been great and I cannot wait to get in the market and trade.”

“I found the program to be very beneficial. When you start using the strategies you can see how they do work. Worth every penny.”

“Online Trading Academy's ProTrader 1 and 2 gave me a strong foundation to start my trading activities. The instructor was great and extremely knowledgeable, and the learning center was top notch.”


“I've fully enjoyed the Pro Trader Class with Stephen Hanahoe. He is very effective in sharing his knowledge and experience with the class. I feel I have learned as much as I can concerning core strategy in trading and can fully advance in any direction to the next set of trading classes without having to look back.”

“The changing global situation dictates an understanding of global markets and this class facilitated that effort. Austin has a very nice OTA center and the accommodations are adequate for a good size class.”

“Always clean, quiet and cool. Good coffee, breakfast and lunch provided. Centrally located for easier access. Simply put, I learned how the pros trade Forex.”

“Excellent program and I will be back for it again.”

“Very educative and informative. I was able to test the strategies with live examples in the lab.”

“I have been going to "FREE" days seminars for 10 years. I have never signed up because I could tell that I would go home and not be able to figure things out on my own. I had been asking for a program to "hold my hand" until I could become a successful trader. This was an answer to my prayers.”

“OTA takes a person that knows nothing about the markets to trading like a Pro.”


“Online trading is something I thought I would never understand, but the seven days class I took with Online Trading Academy has given me trading knowledge that will give new perspective in life.”

“I joined OTA about 18 months ago and have been impressed with the amount of support material available to me. This is my second Futures class and I could not be more satisfied with the instructor, Brandon Wendell. His overall knowledge of the markets is impressive, but what I found to be more useful was his ability to relate the material to our own personal goals. I am excited about putting his techniques to practical use and feel confident that I will be successful. Thank you!”

“I would not use any other tutoring method for all my financial education than OTA!”

“The location and facility is great. The instructor takes the time to ensure that everyone understands the material and is helpful with suggestions during actual trading times. Thanks.”

“The classes gave me the insight that I didn't have before; it taught me to plan like the corporate world, not like the typical untrained user.”

“The faculties' experience and anecdotes from their personal trading history, particularly those that have traded on the floor or in trading houses, enhanced the lessons making the lessons concrete and memorable. It's worth the cost to learn from their mistakes, instead of losing money learning from my own.”

“My name is Robert Graves and I joined in the Online Trading Academy courses to change my lifestyle to less physical and still make a great living. Online Trading Academy, from my experience so far, will get me to that place.”


“Awesome course. I have come to Online Trading Academy without any trading knowledge. I now have a trading plan, the knowledge to execute it and confidence in my skills. I am a successful and professional trader in the next 6 months.”

“This course gives a good building block for learning to trade. One must continue to practice and learn the system. But with the tools you are given you should be able to trade very profitable. ”

“As a novice trader, I would not read anything negative written about Online Trading Academy. As with anything in life you must first experience what you seek then make an informed decision. My experience has been informative to the point I will have no regret to become a returning Online Trading Academy student. I appreciate the time the instructors and staff take from their families to make my life changing decisions an easier transition.”

“I have traded stocks for over forty years by using the seat of my pants technology. This worked well in the 90's, especially in the tech sector, however, this success is no longer possible today. This school has given me a new foundation to build upon for a real future success.”

“I wish I had not wasted my time and money chasing all the other resources. If I had it to do over, I would have started out with Online Trading Academy.”
