What's Happening at OTA 5/15

Insights from OTA

Many of our centers are currently closed due to the "stay at home" orders, so we are looking for additional ways to connect with our students. We were inspired to create a digital newsletter - What's Happening at Online Trading Academy. Our goal is to highlight a variety of things. For example, the upcoming online class schedule, resources you might not be familiar with (or you forgot about), and innovations as we continue to create new ways to help you with your trading and investing journey.

Above is an example of Online sessions conducted live and recorded last week, as you can see, a lot is going on!!

"Challenge" Yourself

Did you know we have Challenge Games?

Challenge Games give you an opportunity to practice setting up and executing trades in a virtual online environment. Sign-up for Learning Labs where you will have dedicated lab time with the oversight of a lab assistant to fine-tune your trading skills.

Challenge Games are simply a way for students to practice a focused skill that is critical to becoming a more skillful trader. Each one-hour session begins with a quick review followed by exercises that get progressively more difficult to solve. Core concepts are challenged as students learn to efficiently navigate CliK and more effectively recognize patterns. The exercises are deliberately spaced and sequenced to be challenging, slightly uncomfortable, and include timely and informative feedback.

Schedule your sessions today! Reserve your seats in Learning Labs, located in My OTA > My Resources > Learning Labs.
