What Students Are Saying

“The Options class was very informative. The new course book was easy to follow, and therefore, I gained confidence in my online trading strategies. I had been doing options trading before the class, but came away really understanding how much I didn't know about options.”

, November 2017

“The best Options class I had so far. Step-by-step guidance on how to start looking for trades, though strategy selection, trade maintenance and so on. The 8-step process is the best OTA developed so far imho.”

, October 2017

“Just completed the Options Trader Class at Online Trading Academy. If you are looking to understand and engage in Options trading this is the place to learn objectively, hands on experience. You will be glad you came here.”

“The options course has shown me a technique where I can use my capital to the best advantage while minimizing the potential risks that come with extra leverage.”

, September 2017

“Having traded options since 1976, I thought I knew all there was to know about options! However, Mr. Hadley taught me several new methods and ideas for trading options. The things he taught me more than paid for the cost of the course.”

, September 2017

“My overall experience with the class was GREAT. I've learned more in just 6 days than I had ever thought I'd be able to learn in this short amount of time and be able to actually apply it. I am certainly looking forward to 6 months from now when I can look back and see that I'm a totally different person from my commitment to attend OTA. Look out for me!”
