Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Core Strategy courses, you will learn skills and techniques to help you buy and sell ETFs like a professional trader. We will teach you a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. The Core Strategy courses (formerly known as Professional Trader) focus on stock trading using ETFs, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Core Strategy (5 days) and Part 2 (2 days); which are taken together. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

What Students Are Saying

“This is a very good course to get one started with stock and ETF trading for daily and weekly traders.”

, September 2018

“This is the most comprehensive class I have taken at OTA so far. The class covers techniques and concepts from hourly trading to monthly or proactive investing, all the while using core strategy and worksheets to support your decisions along the way. Scot has a unique way of explaining concepts using everyday terms that are very easy to understand. I have had problems in the past with my trading, but I expect to substantially improve after this class. The addition of the psychology section was a valuable addition.”

“The Core Strategies Class was strategic in my understanding the basic dynamics of supply and demand market movement. I don't believe that it would be possible to grasp this concept apart from attending this class.”

, April 2018

“I had been a buy and hold investor for over 20 years and knew there was something big that I was missing. The class taught me the value of supply and demand. I would recommend this class to anyone BEFORE they ever place a single trade in the market.”
