What Our Students are Saying

“OTA provides education for any kind of market. Up, down or sideways.”

“OTA does a fabulous job of taking you through step-by-step. It is about educating you for life, not just for the minute.”

Melanie T.
The above testimonial videos were recorded on location with students who agreed to participate. Your results are not guaranteed and will be based on your effort and hard work. Any examples depicting income, earnings, or consistency of trades are not to be interpreted as common, typical, or expected. Some students interviewed have invested in extensive programs. The average person should only assume he/she will receive a valuable trading and investing education. None of our courses will provide education to become a Licensed Broker in the financial industry, or licensing in any other profession, and no course of instruction will lead to any job, employment or professional certification or credits. We believe in full transparency and a high standard of integrity, so see our full disclaimer here.

Who Should Attend

The free introductory half-day class is designed for people who are interested to begin to learn more about how they can make the right moves in the financial markets. This includes:

  1. Investors who are frustrated with the performance of their retirement accounts and are concerned they may outlive their money. Many lost money in previous market crashes (2008 and 2000) and are nervous of another. These investors come to the class to start to understand what they could do to learn how to protect and grow their portfolio.
  2. Traders who come to the class because they are tired of not seeing the results they hoped for. Most of them have been using technical analysis for years with little to possibly no reward for their efforts. They attend the class to begin to learn about strategies designed to help find high probability, low-risk income opportunities.
  3. People who have little to no experience trading or investing. Many of these folks worry about what losing their job would do to their lifestyle or are tired of working so hard just to make someone else rich. They attend the class to discover trading and investing strategies designed to produce a second stream of income.

If you find yourself identifying with any of these situations, the free introductory half-day class is just for you.

Online Trading Academy is a world leader in education for traders and investors.
