What Our Students Are Saying
“Personally, I have been to 3 other trading schools before OTA. All of the schools had great information. The problem was the presentation of the information, the follow up of the information and the breadth of the information presented. Some of the schools gave a 2-3 day seminar at the most, if you were lucky, perhaps a 20 page book. The information was great but once you went home the ONLY follow up was a phone call and then you felt like you were inconveniencing someone. Also, the other schools only taught options and stocks. They did not have the ability to look into your computer and control the screen and it was a nightmare trying to do a trade. They had great online learning modules but if you had questions you had to pay extra to sit with the instructor, but the time was limited because they were trading and teaching trading all day. I felt like I had a lot of information but no confidence to trade and just absolutely no confidence entering a trade and there were some instructors that did not know how to use the trading platform I was using. Online Trading Academy had EVERYTHING the other schools were missing. They have a free standing school where you could sit in a class with other students. They have real books and study guides. The classes are more than 2 days. They are full days and the instructor puts the lessons on the board. You also are instructed while on a computer how to use the platforms to put trades in and manage them. There is homework you can do and the school's website has the same information in class and so much more. They also have a wide variety of instructors who are extremely versed in trading and they all are different. There is also another level of trading that you can learn. It is well worth the cost and you are able to learn advanced trading and you are surrounded by like-minded teachers and students and you can become a Master Trader. There are also times when students can get together at the school and online and discuss, learn and do additional trading. Also, every student has a counselor who assists them to create an education plan on what they are to learn and it is tailor made for the student and their individual needs. Also, the instructors and staff are very warm and they care about the students. I have just completed my first class and I am utterly blown away by the education and the possibilities that trading will give me. I am taking every class they offer and I am in awe of the possibilities that I know are ahead of me now because of OTA. This school is exactly what I needed.”
“This academy is well worth the price! The tools of the trade are only a small portion of the program. The support that you receive after the initial classes is tremendous! ”
