“Great class! The material is thorough and presented in a timely manner with no one left behind! The staff always has a smile, and they’re always there to help!”

“OTA offers a lot of information which I've already realized I retained more of than I thought would be possible. The resources for all the information are readily available via videos, articles and even class retakes for free. The collective experience and expertise of every employee is amazing. You will be welcomed and treated like family by any and all who work here. That's truly a credit to excellent management.”

“OTA surpassed all my expectations. I would never have predicted how much I would learn in 7 days, how many resources would be offered during and after class, how organized the entire program was, and how much the staff are truly invested (pun intended) in student growth. It is obvious that Chris Crum, Tillie Allison, Matt McGrath, and the entire staff have strong backgrounds in education and have been motivated by their own experiences to provide top-notch training and support.”


“I'm always the first person here every day because I’m very excited to attend and meet everyone, and the setting and the facility are excellent. Staff are very helpful and friendly and also very professional. The food is good, and I always look forward to coming back for more training and good times.”

“Trading on the stock exchange is something I've always wanted to do. I'm grateful the Online Trading Academy has the ability to teach trading and wrap the student in an abundant amount of resources right out the gate. I'm learning to drive a motorcycle and I have training wheels on it! Ha! Give me a year and I'll be ready to race!”

“I have enjoyed my experience with Online Trading Academy. It was well worth the investment. They have great teachers and there are many tools to use after the class to help you understand investing even more.”

“Online Trading Academy brought what I believed to be the complexity of the market and trading down to very easy-to-understand terms. I feel much more confident in trading online.”

“The entire staff is awesome, very professional, and friendly.”

“A great, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. Every team member has high energy and encourages questions so that they can help you in becoming a successful trader.”

“I look forward to taking this to the next level and becoming part of the 5%. I've always been very intrigued by the markets and I now have the knowledge to do something about it. Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible.”

“I am very happy with my OTA Core Strategy education. I am looking forward to my Forex asset class, and the CliK platform is a game changer. Thank you very much OTA for the opportunities this course has given me and the time and effort you all put into our education.”

“It seemed only logical that, if Chris Crum and Matt McGrath were able to help me understand a short sell just by listening to them on the radio, then OTA could help me understand how to trade in their classroom. I waited way too long to jump in, but I’m glad that I have. After working through Core Strategy, it's clear that the potential is way beyond what I had originally thought.”

“I've always wanted to learn about trading on my own. I have been frustrated by the lack of information about strategies that financial advisers would use with my accounts. Having gone through the Core Strategy course at the Online Trading Academy, I now have a greater understanding of the basic principles of trading, and most importantly, how to avoid losing money.”

“If you are looking to learn about this industry, then you came to the right place. These guys have this stuff down to a science. I have learned so much here in such a short time. Thanks OTA!”

“Online Trading Academy keeps getting better. The new CliK system is intuitive and keeps you disciplined. The instructors have forgotten more than you will ever need, they are so good. Very impressive.”

“Great communications leading up to and throughout the class. 7 days of instruction is a grind, however, none of the time in class was wasted and all of the lecture and simulation trading was relevant and necessary. Jon was top notch, approachable, knowledgeable and incredibly patient with our group of new-to-trading novices.”

“Online Trading Academy provides a wealth of information that is easy to understand and provides a platform and resources which allow their students to be positioned for success. I would recommend OTA to anyone interested in a new or enhanced trading career.”

“I wish I would have taken this course years ago. I now realize the mistakes I made and I would have been a wealthy man. Fantastic group of people at the Academy. I made many new friends and my head is swimming with info.”

“Jon Arginteanu's prior experience on Wall Street was a great value add to this class. He clearly broke down each section of the curriculum and had wonderful stories and analogies to reinforce core concepts. Having CliK available to find and plan trades was surprisingly simple and effective. In addition, Matt McGrath's help building my trade plan and guiding me through my education options step-by-step during the class was invaluable.”

“It's obvious I would recommend the program to a family member because my son is taking this class now for the first time while I am retaking the class. It's been eye-opening and life-changing for both of us.”

“The people at OTA KC are the best. Great facility and friendly, helpful staff. Greg has great knowledge of the topic and good humor. Always learn something new and made new friends in the class.”

“The best thing about OTA is being able to take the classes over again, both live and online! You are constantly learning new things and picking up things you missed!”

“The patterns of supply and demand within the technical charts is undeniable. Translating the probability of predicting market action into income without risking too much capital is truly possible, and Online Trading Academy is the best school of this kind. They have the best combination of online assets and brick & mortar classrooms in the business.”

“Exceptional instruction in a complex subject matter, explained in a simple way. Follow-on classes and online subject matter are very helpful. As a beginner, I appreciate the wealth of information and instructional material available online. Answers to questions are just a phone call or e-mail away.”

“The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have fun but keep very focused on establishing what you're here for! If you are looking to get serious into trading I recommend taking the Core Strategy. If you are interested I would definitely consider taking the free class to get a good idea of how it fits into your life. Tillie was our instructor; she is very sweet and very informative.”

“I have recommended it to everyone who asks me how I learned to trade. The instructors are awesome and the support staff is top notch.”

“Instructor, Tillie Allison-Harris, was "Right-On" target to meeting my educational needs. She went beyond meeting expectations. Operations Manager, Courtney Fritts was most generous with her efforts to secure program attendance due to my personal scheduling constraints. Katy Yearton is an AMAZING Education Counselor. She looked out for my financial well being when she suspected that I was seeking to overextend myself. Her no pressure style as my first contact with OTA is much respected. Matt Roberts was an excellent source of Support from Marketing Timing Course till Core Strategy Graduation. He was always available by phone for questions leading up to CS. Matt's continued help with a smile. Baily was the best campus hostess. I appreciated her extra care in prepping the delicious meals and keeping our eating area so clean and pretty. The fresh flowers were appreciated.”

“The OTA programs are a game changer. This Forex class has helped me make the move to my next trading level. I appreciate the instructor's resources and the relations I have developed with my fellow students. Jody has been able to help create a bond to support one another. I will follow my trading rules to become a successful Forex trader. Our instructor, Jody Wong, is one of the best kept secrets of OTA.”

“Being able to retake courses has proven to be extremely valuable for grasping these niche concepts. The Overland Park, KS location goes above and beyond in providing onsite activities for learning and growth in and out of the classroom.”

“It offers a true rules based strategy that highlights all the mistakes the average investor makes and how you can avoid them. It teaches you how you can make money from the market the way an institution would. You have people who really know what they are doing to help you for the rest of your life until you can do what they do.”

“I truly enjoyed the program. I love that there are rules and my teacher, Tillie, did a great job of explaining the rules and demonstrating how they work. She gave individual attention as needed. I also appreciated that breakfast & lunch were provided so that we didn't break the continuity by leaving the location. BTW, the food was great! In addition, I'm leaving with a confidence that I can make money using the rules I've learned here.”

“OTA is one of those purchases that grows in value over time. I've traded options a long time, but not successfully, probably because I knew the "nuts and bolts" about options, but never understood how to combine them into any kind of strategy. It's a great feeling to trade with the understanding of how things fit together.”

“The systematic approach OTA uses to teach dynamic and complicated trading concepts to trading novices like myself is effective and establishes a manageable foundation for further understanding. I look forward to improving on the skills we developed in Core Strategy and applying them to real life trades. I have absolute confidence that down the road I'll be able to reflect on this class as an investment and $ well spent.”

“OTA proved to be a highly professional experience. The commitment, attitude and passion of every individual was evident throughout the entire experience.”

“Before coming to OTA, I was looking for a second stream of income outside of my job. After attending the Core Strategy course, it helped me to look at how I use money differently. I appreciate the patience of my instructor, Mrs. Tillie and my guidance counselor, Katy. With their help I am learning a new skill and will also know how to be more successful in my business endeavors.”

“OTA has the best instructors in the world to teach you about the financial markets.”

“My experience at OTA has been great! The staff and Kansas City location are fantastic and I could not be happier with my experience.”

“This academy is definitely NOT A SCAM. I was nearly sucked into a few stock programs that were, luckily I found OTA.”

“I started out on my first day with my head exploding with all the information, but at the end of the class I can honestly say that, as a person who knew nothing of trading, that I have a clear knowledge of my Risk to Reward ratio and well defined rules of planning my retirement.”

“Thank you OTA staff. Another great experience! Thanks Tillie, you are very good at what you do and appreciated greatly. Looking forward to additional classes and achieving future goals with the OTA family by my side.”


“Don was SUPER thorough in his teaching strategy and was willing to answer virtually any question that would come up during or even after class. I would definitely recommend Don Dawson to all futures takers! Thanks for the great instructing and all of the Kansas City OTA team for the clean, upbeat atmosphere!”

“The OTA Futures class in KC is a 1st class program. The facility and employees of OTA KC are second to none, and Don Dawson is an excellent instructor. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone serious about futures trading.”

“The OTA Futures Course has been an immersive, intensive learning experience into a structured, rules based trading methodology. The investment in the course - and all OTA programs - is worth the time, effort and money. I anticipate the return on investment to be a lifetime of successful trading leading to financial independence. The faculty and staff at OTA Overland Park are incredible because they live what they teach! Thanks OTA.”

“The program was great and I truly enjoyed all of the interactive lessons and hands on training. The Staff was great. As a person that has never traded, I never felt out of place or that I made a mistake by attending.”

“I've listened to Power Trading Radio for years and finally took the classes. I should have done this years ago. The instruction is professional, fast paced, and keys in on what the retail trader never learns. I'd recommend this Academy to anyone wanting to have a say in their financial future.”

“It's a lot of information, but very vital to your success. I've done countless hours of research and no one does it better than OTA. A very large community of encouraging staff, traders and alumni all looking to help each other out. Core strategies is great. Need I say this is only the foundation, true success will come with what you put in and what you choose to do after class. The market and world are yours to take. Don't let your comfort zone be your kill zone.”

“OTA classes are very informative. I wish I would have taken them very early in my career. The instructors are friendly, helpful and very interested in the success of the students. The fellow students range from beginners, to people who have been trading a long time with different methods, to graduates retaking the course. The students are also friendly and willing to help each other. This is a community where everyone is willing to help each other both in class and after.”

“I started playing in the market in 2002. I knew and felt I needed to look at the market differently in order to be successful. It took me this many years, life changes, market crash and corrections and nearing retirement to act on that thought. As I have finally taken that step, and knowing I needed my sons to "not" follow my steps in life, it is clear this is a solid foundation for success.”

“Online Trading Academy is key to understanding trading and investing. The core strategy class gives you a foundation to build your knowledge of trading and investing. Tillie lays everything out in such a way that even a toddler can understand! ”

“If you're looking for a quick money scheme then this is not for you. It is a great program but you have to put in the time and money. It will be a life changing experience not only for me but for my family. Thank you, Kansas City team for your patience and support and I look forward to having an even better relationship with this team as I move forward in the program.”

“I feel very very lucky to have been able to attend class at OTA. I gained more from this class week than I did in 4 years of college. Truly life changing. ”

“They were very caring and helpful. Whenever I had a question it was answered quickly and clearly. Great staff and teachers. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in the market but has no idea where to start, like I did. Thank you, Online Trading Academy.”

“My attraction to the OTA was sparked from the intelligence and expertise expressed from the orientation. I have always believed that in order to truly gain knowledge, it's necessary to receive guidance from the knowledgeable. The professor I experienced during my training had all the capabilities and expertise to bring about a clear understanding of the goals and objectives of this patented strategy, and I am ever so grateful that I took the time to take part.”

“OTA provides top-notch training and the real world examples that you need in order to begin trading successfully. There is no other organization like this out there.”

“It was great to see how the markets really work. It helps me to understand why my trades in the past always seemed to move away from me. I am excited about being able to trade like a pro.”

“Core Strategy is an awesome experience and very in-depth introduction to the educational platforms offered at OTA. It is a great way to start building your trading network community and look forward to expanding the relationships created here at OTA. ”

“This class was an eye opening, life changing experience. I am leaving with a completely different perspective and confidence than I started the week with. The instructors and staff here at OTA KC are excellent. I look forward to continuing this educational and professional journey with them. ”

“OTA provides the tools to jump start a successful trading experience. The Kansas City team provides incredible support to all students - highly responsive.”

“OTA is definitely in the business of enhancing your life--the skillset that they teach is invaluable. It is a life skill that will reward you continually. I would encourage everyone to at least take a Market Timing class to get your feet wet. It opens your eyes to the possibilities, and once you enroll as a student and take a Core Strategy class, you truly gain an understanding of how the financial markets work and how you can take advantage of them to bring in additional income, build wealth, and become financially independent--one of the greatest rewards one can achieve. I can't thank the team at OTA Kansas City enough for the opportunities, education, support--and who can forget the exception food! OTA KC is a phenomenal location and sets the bar for how OTA should be.”

“I appreciate all the time and attention the center staff in Overland Park (Kansas City) have given to me. Their support and encouragement have been invaluable. The tools I have received and the ongoing support offered will definitely help me reach my trading goals.”

“The classes, instructors, content and environment at OTA-KC is first rate. Just the right amount of information in the new Options 1 class and instructors are so knowledgeable that they can answer questions with real life information and examples and not just repeat the book material.”

“I would recommend OTA to anyone who would like to start or make a change in their careers. OTA truly makes this not just one educational experience, but a number of opportunities to continue reinforcing what has been learned, as well as access to teachers from all over the country.”

“OTA totally rocks. I'm a Mastermind, and the more time passes, the more I'm glad I joined the program. The instructors are awesome, and so is the support staff, and everyone involved that I've met is top-notch.”

“OTA permits and encourages retakes of their various trading courses. For me, it has been most beneficial to be able to do this. I have taken most of the different classes multiple times and have had different instructors, as well as the same instructors for some. In doing so, I am able to learn and apply information from different trading backgrounds and experience. This is a truly great experience provided by OTA.”

“The thing I love most about OTA is the access to different instructors with different trading styles and their willingness to pass their knowledge down to us. I learned something new from every instructor. Don Dawson is most certainly my all time favorite. I am still new to trading so my strategy is still something I'm trying to get set in stone. Many of the things he spoke of sounded very much like the strategy I have been attempting to develop.”

“Online Training Academy is a first class educational experience that makes use of excellent instructors in a comfortable and innovative environment. The entire staff wants you to succeed. ”

“This program is an amazing start to a long term investment for life. OTA is a family oriented place that cares about the success of their students. Tillie Allison - Harris was a very kind and patient trainer, along with the education counselors, Katy Yearton and Matt McGrath. I am ready for this life changing experience.”

“Life is a journey. We take many journeys in this life, and OTA certainly puts one on the path for an exceptional journey. OTA is the real deal; the resources are phenomenal and Ten Tick Tillie is a dynamite, compassionate and knowledgeable instructor that is a AAA rated instructor with the patience of a saint. Core Strategy is the beginning of the journey.”

“When I first signed up, I thought OTA was going to show me what I already knew about how to invest in the markets. After a few days, I realized that I was leaving a lot of profits behind and the real investors were looking for retail people like me. They taught me how to read the charts and look for the SZ and DZ to determine what I should place my trades on for that day. ”

“This class was a fast paced and highly beneficial foray into trading. The introduction into managed risk trading helped me to see the mistakes many other traders make and to see the profit potential in Online Trading's methods. I will enjoy the process of putting the plan into effect to secure our family's future.”

“Online Trading Academy has a program that is very comprehensive and gives you the opportunity to learn rule based skills. The support behind the program is outstanding, and you are never left in a position where you can't get answers. You can do this program with any level of experience, and have amble opportunity to grow at your desired pace. The bottom line is that you have to put the time in to study, develop skills, and do simulated trades before you are ready to risk your own money. If you are ready to learn a new skill set, then I highly recommend this program.”

“Jon's experience as a floor trader gave insight that was immeasurable. He was able to share 17 year's worth of mistakes and success and relate it to actual trades we tracked during class. After completing the course, I feel like I will succeed because of all the external resources OTA provides as well as the ones Jon was able to recommend from his experience. Having a weekly opportunity to connect with my peers and stay connected to the community, which is essential, is another huge benefit. Access to classes online and continued education through the OTA website ensures I will stay up to date and have help with any questions I may have. The personnel that run the campus are outstanding. They are truly dedicated to their students' success and readily available. I would highly recommend OTA if you are serious about learning this business because you could really lose a lot if you don't know what you are doing, and they give you the knowledge, the tools, and the follow through to help you succeed.”

“Do yourself a favor, buckle down take the leap of faith. Join OTA. Your future self will thank you. I can say that my life has truly changed course. I won't need to look at the prices unless I just want to. Lol When you are confident in the process, the rest follows. Happy Trading!”

“The Online Trading Academy atmosphere was a 5 star experience, as it was intended to be. There was a short session with our instructor, Tillie Allison, prior to breakfast which was prepared for you by 0810 every morning, except Sunday. After breakfast we submerged ourselves each day into a deeper level of OTA philosophies, strategies and planning. My 21 classmates and I were provided top of line bound text books with full color illustrated sections for terms, charts, and strategies. I couldn't get enough and yet there was so much to learn it began to test everyone's mental endurance. With that said, OTA provided all the refreshments you could eat to maintain a mental alertness, but you definitely felt challenged by the day's end. By the end of the Core Strategy courses, you find yourself excited about the XLT Courses to follow, which will include more live trading online with your mentor. The family atmosphere created at OTA makes you anxious to keep in touch with classmates to see how they are doing as we all continue to help each other as we did in the classroom. The education staff is super knowledgeable and, best of all, experienced and still actively trading. Tillie Allison demonstrated a lot of patience. Thanks Tillie!”

“This was a great beginner course to teach people the basics of trading. I learned a lot about how the market actually works, and I'm excited about taking the Futures Course and continuing my education! A big shout out to Tillie for being an amazing instructor and caring about each one of your students. The administrative staff are great, and they take care of our needs throughout the course.”

“If you want to understand how the financial markets really work, what drives them and find out the way the professionals go about their business, the Online Trading Academy is the way to go. Their trade methodology is a quantum shift in thinking about how to really make money in the markets.”

“The training at OTAKC is first class. They make a complex subject understandable and the strategies for trading taught are proven and valuable. It is a real community atmosphere where they provide you with the tools and training needed to achieve success. A great value for the money spent!!”

“OTA teaches you how to trade and how to manage the trade afterwards. Each step is explained and then you get to enter trades based on what you've learned--theory and practice both.”

“I felt the entire organization truly cared for each student. They are passionate about educating their students with a skill set that will help each individual fulfill their financial and personal goals. OTA's mission wasn't to sell me the hype but to give me the knowledge needed to win.”

“The quality of the instructors, coupled with OTA's developed rule based aids and instruction material turns a seemingly impossible task of not only understanding the market but also helping guide us to different methods of success. It is obvious that there are many different individual needs, and learning styles, so I am amazed how their system(s) offers each of us the abilities resources to grow. Why this works is that OTA hammers home the need to follow the rule based methodology. You need to personally develop tailored learning for your potential style of trading to meet your needs and income objectives. This is not some easy check list type of program, and to be successful one has to work hard and spend a lot of time to gain the knowledge and discipline necessary to be successful. OTA does their part by making all of the necessary information and skill sets available, the rest is up to the individual student.”

“Great class that made profitable trading realistic for the mere mortal, not something that only the institutions can do. Tilly did a great job. Thank you.”

“Tillie Allison at the Kansas City location did a really good job and she was able to make it fun at the same time. It was a lot of information to take in over the 7 days. But when I look back from when I started Core Strategy until finishing the class...I know I've learned a lot. I'm not one that likes to go to school, but this is a very exciting school and I want to learn more. I really enjoy working with Matt McGrath for my Trade Plan and just talking with him. I enjoy listening to Chris Crum tell stories. The serious ones about school and everything it has to offer, but especially his funny stories. I can't imagine one of the other OTA locations being better than the Kansas City location. The facility is very nice but the people that work there are what really makes it special. Courtney Fritts has been a great help with getting me scheduled for and the other things after that. Matt Robertson, the IT person that's direct and to the point. He was quick to help the students that needed help. It's a great family and now I'm part of it. I look forward to continuing my education at the Kansas City location and of course all the classes and XLTs online. I'm glad I got XLT for the asset I'm trading. The support that OTA provides is really amazing and when I need help, they're there for me. I believe that they want us to succeed from everything that they offer at OTA and how it's structured. Thank you, OTA and especially the K.C location Team for making me feel like part of the family.”

“If you have any interest in learning or improving your ability to trade any market, then Online Trading Academy is it. I am most impressed with the follow on support.”

“In my career, I have processed Derivatives and have worked with Broker Statements, all from a processing perspective; without a true understanding of how it all worked. After attending the Core Strategy Class, I now understand my own profession better and am confident in the ability to continue and grow in my knowledge. Given the wealth of resources OTA offers and the practicability of it all, I know I will be a great success.”

“Had become bored, and tired, and tired of being bored. This class has brought my mind back to life. So much to learn, and such huge reasons to learn it all!!! Very grateful that we decided to make this investment, and truly look forward to the next steps.”

“The commitment to continuous improvement of the technical skills they teach is obvious; especially impressive is the support OTA offers all students. We need to remember to take advantage of that support.”

“Online Trading Academy has opened my eyes to a whole new world that I barely knew existed! This amazing program will change your life! Looking forward to an ongoing relationship with OTA staff, instructors, and the whole OTA community!”

“When my husband first decided he wanted to learn trading after hearing Matt McGrath on the radio, I was very skeptical. We attended a small meeting where Matt went over what OTA was all about and gave a small explanation about the world of trading. My husband was even more interested in attending, and I have to say I was very nervous yet intrigued. So, we signed up for the first class. First day of class we met Tillie Allison, who was to be our instructor for the next 7 days. Tillie was full of wonderful energy and very helpful knowledge during our classes. Matt McGrath, Matt Roberts, Courtney Fritts and Katy Yearton were also very knowledgeable and helpful with anything we needed to know. They offer you help during class, and there are many different things that are available after class to help each student. Thank you, OTA, for this opportunity to work on bettering our lives.”


“The classes at OTA continue to improve and change with all the changes in the markets. Which allows the students to keep pace with all that's going on in the fast paced world of trading.”

“This location was easy to find and access. The people here went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of, knowing I was not from this area. They made me feel right at home!!”

“The willingness of OTA to help us with anything at any time is very impressive. The amount of assistance, resources and continuing education opportunities help me leave here with the confidence that OTA will always be here for me.”

“This learning experience once again focuses us on what it is that we really need. Cathie, our instructor, was patient, kind and insightful in helping us understand the concepts. We feel much better about our possibilities to be successful.”

“Tillie Allison-Harris is a great instructor. Her understanding of the economy, the trading platform and the strategic plan of being a successful trader is really amazing. I attended this class as an unconscious incompetent, and leave it consciously incompetent. In other words, I didn't know what I didn't know but now I know for sure what I don't know and have a plan to fill the gaps in my education! Extreme kudos also to Matt McGrath, who really helped me to put together a business plan and a concrete list of goals to achieve prior to trading with my own money. Matt Roberts is hilarious in the classroom (the IT guy that advises us and keeps everything running) and is priceless in giving us guidance on what to buy and how to use it. Courtney Fritts fed us and made sure we had everything we needed even though the whole company had just moved into its new offices THE DAY BEFORE THE CLASS STARTED. And Chris Crum has stories that go on, and on, and on... but are funny anyway. All in all, it was a great seven days. I can't wait to go home and open an account and begin trading on the simulator!”

“I've never traded anything, and now I have the basics to grow from... I'm impressed with every aspect of the Academy. I'm especially impressed with the support I'll be able to receive after I depart the classroom portion of my training. ”

“Everyone associated with OTA is more than willing to answer any questions and help in any way to help us learn in order to be successful.”

“Truly an eye-opening experience in terms of how the market actually works, overall being driven by big banks at supply and demand. I've already had quite a bit of experience trading, and had reviewed and practiced the pieces and components. But in class, Tillie brought it all together so I learned how to properly combine everything into an integrated system and an actionable plan.”

“I have talked to several people who have tried other systems., ...myself included. I have never found any other system with this high a satisfaction rate.”

“I was tired of losing money trading as a novice in the market and after years of trials the only strategy I felt comfortable using was buy and hold. I was skeptical of the program and it took me 9 months to decide it was a good investment to take the next step. Taught by real market traders, the instructors at OTA are not only professional and knowledgeable, they are willing to share their personal experiences and strategies. It will take me weeks to unpack all the great insight but I feel I now have the tools to be a successful trader.”

“If these courses don't change your perspective on how the financial system works, then you were sleeping in class. You know that book on teaching a person to fish? Well, if you think there is even a grain of reality in that statement, here's an opportunity to change your life.”

“The training provided is essential for success in trading the market and the support they give you is a plan for success. This is a perfect program with a proven plan to educate you.”

“This is a comprehensive program that cuts to the nitty gritty without going through a bunch of "fluff". It is intense and I am still in the process of digesting but I'm looking forward to a few lightbulbs going off in the future. The personnel are compassionate and friendly. I felt comfortable the first day I came to OTA. It is a very welcoming environment. The counselors are informative and engaging.”

“The Core Strategy Class was of great benefit to me in opening up a world of information about trading the market. I am excited to get started working with all the newly acquired information and techniques. Online Trading Academy has made a program that is concise and laid out in a way that I can understand and the materials are most helpful for getting me started with online trading. I truly appreciate all the people at the KC Academy who have been so helpful and have gone out of their way to assist myself and all of us with questions and concerns. The Academy folks have demonstrated to me that they are truly interested in each of us as people and further interested in us becoming successful online traders! Thank you so much!”

“My experience at the OTA center has no parallel. The facility is clean, professional, and conducive to learning. The staff carry themselves with a high level of professionalism while simultaneously being personable and candid. No problems whatsoever. Great experience!”

“The academy goes out of their way to give you the very best trading education. Smiling faces greet you every day by personnel who truly care about their students' success. Instructors bring years of various trading experience to the table and their training provides the edge to make a deflated novice trader a successful professional trader. Much time and money noticeably went into the quality trading and education tools. There is a web of after-class support available that should prove itself invaluable. I look forward to developing my trading skills and building my confidence and bank account!”

“There is no way to consistently make money trading the markets for income without an education, and more importantly a continuous education process The team at Online Trading Academy are the best at presenting a way to preserve your capital while providing enough income to grow. The instructors have all been where the students are and have lots of wisdom to present. There is always a program to keep adding to your toolkit.”

“I am so grateful to Online Trading Academy for offering me the education I have always wanted. I have learned how the markets function and how I can be SAFE trading my hard earned money within these markets. Thank you!”

“I've had many classes, seminars, lessons, continuing education, etc. This is the best experience I've had from the teaching to the support and to the guidance. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.”

“What I enjoy the most? The atmosphere and presence of positive like minded friends and folks who have stated we are family. I feel it every time I communicate with OTA KC. Thank you!”

“The center was way above what I expected. The staff was very friendly, our instructor, Tillie, was just great help from day 1 to day 7. She worked with us and held our hands to have a better understanding of what it is we were getting into. From terms and dialogue to understanding and setting up trades, she was truly a blessing these 7 days. The rest of the staff was welcoming. Everything was organized and clean; the food was great and much appreciated. My overall experience was amazing. This course allowed me the opportunity to change my finances and my lifestyle. Online Trading Academy opened the doors to the land of milk and honey.”

“Very eye opening!!! So much information, and so much opportunity to create the future I've always dreamed of! The entire team pulls together to create a giving, sharing and fun environment in which to learn, grow and network. They all reach out to help in every area. I'm extremely impressed with everyone, from the receptionist to the owner.”

“Core Strategy training here in Kansas City is top notch! Some of the best hands-on and educational personal finance training available. Also, the support resources are truly impressive! Great Team, true professionals! Their growing record of educating students from as far as Saint Louis speaks for itself! Well worth the trip. Look forward to coming back for a re-take!”

“The Core Strategy Class is phenomenal! The amount of material that is included in the class is second to none and it's just the tip of the iceberg. The instructors and staff are very helpful and know their perspective area of expertise upside down and inside out. It is an expensive endeavor but well worth it if you practice and apply what is taught. AND the food was great!”

“The whole exercise was enjoyable, educative, enriching and, above all, an eye opener to me. Spacious parking spaces, exceptional cleanliness, friendly and helpful personnel.”

“The information I have been privileged with is priceless. OTA has provided a means I have always felt was there, but never really knew exactly how to get it. OTA has provided the "Yellow Brick Road", so to speak, to successful trading in the markets! I am extremely grateful and blessed for the opportunity that OTA has provided! Thanks OTA.”

“Cleanliness was excellent, breaks were well timed, personnel were not only very friendly but were more than helpful whenever needed. The course is very well written and taught. The online instruction works very well with the in-class instructions; plus, the ability to access more education is what makes this course so successful. I highly recommend this education to anyone who wishes to trade the markets... successfully...”

“Learning to trade can be done by oneself, if you don't mind detours and wandering aimlessly trying to find your way. But, with Online Trading Academy, it is like having a Global Positioning System that can direct me to my destination in the most efficient route and shortest time frame. I am thankful for Online Trading Academy!”

“OTA is the BEST program for anyone interested in accumulating income and long term wealth. OTA teaches novice and seasoned traders alike the RIGHT way to be successful today and to be prepared for the future. I'm grateful my husband and I decided to attend the free workshop to learn that this is a win-win for us and for our family!”

“I am a student of the global financial markets, and for years have studied and watched anything I could get my hands on to learn how to systematically trade. After many starts and stops, I realized that I needed a professional caliber education. I began to research and found OTA. I was enormously skeptical at first, but after attending a week of the Pro Trader class I am beginning to fully understand that there IS a systematic, repeatable process for being profitable as a trader. For the skeptics out there, this is not a magic formula, but rather an amazingly academic way to trade with superior discipline, systematic understanding, and lifelong sustainability. I'm thrilled to be continuing my education with OTA.”

“I am a slow learner and I learn by seeing, hearing, and doing. The people working at Online Trading Academy made sure I understood and are there to help me if I have any questions.”

“It was a pleasure learning the basics in trading. The patience of the teachers and staff are very impressive and I appreciated their ability to take a complicated, complex, technical industry and break it down, dissect it and explain its functionality on an Elementary level. This allows people, like me, who don't think on a technical level, a chance to succeed in an area we never thought possible! Thank you to all of the administration and staff for everything and we look forward to a lifetime of success! ”

“All good here. Everyone at the OP OTA site is friendly, knowledgeable, makes themselves available to answer any and all questions. Truly feel that you are becoming part of a 'family'. This was my second time to take the Pro Trader class. I was able to audit it, and highly recommend that students do this if they have the time. There is no substitute, in my opinion, for the 'in-class', hands on experience. In conjunction with learning on your own at home, it will help accelerate your learning curve and you reach your goals much faster.”

“I was starting with no knowledge of the stock market or anything having to do with trading, but now after graduating class, I now feel %100 more confident in starting my trading life. I still have so much to learn, but I am excited to keep learning more and more from Online Trading Academy! LET THE FUN NEVER STOP!”

“I am a huge fan of the Online Trading Academy. What is most impressive is the breadth and depth of resources available to the students and more importantly the Alumni. Once your classwork is completed OTA is always there to help each of its students succeed at trading.”

“Matt far exceeded my expectations teaching this class. Sometimes when a business mission statement states transforming lives through education it is pure hyperbole. After completion of this class I believe in fact that my financial life has indeed been transformed in a positive way. I can't wait to put what I learned into action.”

“As one who is not a traditional student and with a limited knowledge of the markets, OTA met all of my expectations. The course material was presented in a progressive, methodical manner that allowed me to understand and build from session to session. With all of the online support, follow up from staff and continuing ed courses, the only way to fail is if you fail yourself by not utilizing the wealth of knowledge at your fingertips.”

“The course has a vast amount of information to be absorbed and learned (especially for me who does not have any background in financials and works in a totally different profession). It was overwhelming the first 2 days. I took it as a personal challenge to pursue and finish the course; and so grateful that I did otherwise I would have lost a golden opportunity to get the best education in the industry. Nowhere I will find the best instructor, Tillie Allison, and the best resources available except at OTA.”


“OTA is a class operation! The teachers and support personnel are totally dedicated to the students' success. The center was well set up for the job of teaching trading. They had adequate computers and PowerPoint equipment and the staff was adept at using them. The staff was ALWAYS friendly and obliging. The teacher was fantastic. He answered questions patiently and was precise and methodical. The texts provided were not only attractive, but concise and to the point. They make easy and useful references.”

“When OTA says they can teach anyone to trade, they mean anyone. The only experience I had trading was dumb luck--both good and bad. Now I can make educated investment decisions and will be able to minimize poor decisions. Tillie is an exemplary instructor. Even when students struggled to grasp concepts, she was constantly reassuring us everything was going to be okay. She was always prepared for class and presented instruction in a way that enabled all students to be successful from presenting a concept, to providing an example, guided practice, and cooperative learning. She is a passionate, compassionate, personable, supportive instructor. Katy, too, has been a rock star to work with. Both were struggling with illness, but they carried on and provided an outstanding experience. Courtney does an amazing a job feeding us. I'm afraid to step on the scale when I go home. I was also concerned about snow/ice, and she braved the cold to check the sidewalk conditions before I left the building. Incredible staff.”

“I have previously traded, been to another trading school, and yet could not become successful. Little did I know how much in the dark the other trading school left me. OTA has turned a light bulb on in me that will guide my path as I return to trading. Getting properly trained along with the discipline that OTA teaches is priceless. Thank you!”

“I first learned about OTA on the radio. Although it sounded good, I was also somewhat skeptical about the program. The introductory workshop was amazing. I've completed the Professional Trader class and plan to continue my education. I highly recommend OTA to anyone who is committed to managing their own income and wealth in the financial markets.”

“Very friendly staff that seems to truly care about their students' success. A bit pricey for the classes for those of us on a tight budget. Altogether I learned more about how to trade the markets and how important it is to manage risk than I thought I would going into it. The knowledge is extensive and I was given a very good foundation to begin my trading business.”

“Tillie was a phenomenal instructor. She was passionate and patient with the class. The learning environment was always high energy and she was always able to gauge our understanding and adjust accordingly. I have had very few instructors over my learning career as good as her. The remaining group at OTA-KC were also very good. Courtney had the entire week running like clockwork, with materials and wonderful breakfasts and lunches. Matt McGrath was extremely helpful with developing our trading plan and general questions. Matt Roberts was helpful answering IT concerns about the platforms. I would highly recommend this class to anyone wanting to take control of their financial goals.”

“I love the OTA crowd. Everybody was so nice and professional. The instructors were very patient and understanding with those who needed more help. I don't like crowds and I truly felt comfortable and at home during the OTA training. I feel that I have made new friends, and am on the brink of a life changing event. Thanks, OTA.”

“I came to OTA with a substantial amount of trading experience. I was self-taught and profitable. However, since it had been a great many years since I'd last traded, I was still a bit nervous to re-engage with the markets. OTA has not only refreshed my stale knowledge, it has provided a great number of new insights to solutions for problems I hadn't previously been able to overcome. It has also given me a high degree of confidence in my ability to re-approach trading after a long hiatus. Thank you.”

“I wanted to get started in creating income on my own so I had more control of my time, so I got into the OTA school program. It opened my eyes to a lot of the details of trading, charting, and where to find supply and demand. The instructors are great! They are down to earth and they want to help. The environment there was great from the instructors to the classmate. I would strongly recommend entering into the academy.”

“My experience for the last seven days has been AWEsome! As I walked through the door for the first time, I went through a vast array of emotions; "am I good enough", "I'm too old". etc. But at the end of each day, I learned more than I did the day before. I am committed, and I will "Launch" very carefully!”

“Online Trading Academy teaches a trading system that is logical and easy to understand. The instructors are friendly and genuinely want to see the students succeed.”

“Online Trading Academy dispels the 'stocks is just gambling' myth. Live demonstration has shown me that the process can be learned and is repeatable. The opportunity of 'trading' fulfills many of my goals for growth and security.”

“Impressive educational support to continue your learning experience post class. Truly dedicated staff that wish you to succeed and will be here to support you. . The program gives you the tools but you, and only you, must be also dedicated to put in the work to succeed.”

“All aspects are high quality -- personnel, facilities, helpful attitude, hospitality, personal encouragement. It's comprehensive instruction by experienced and authoritative instructors. Very enlightening information and structured instruction in how to learn it, understand it, and put it into practice step by step.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed the week. Great class and participation from class members enhanced the learning. The metaphor of playing golf is applicable for this ProTrader class. The class has taught me how to grip the club (tools), set-up to the ball (core strategy), make a basic swing (identify trades and entry trades). Now in order to learn to really play, I need to go out on the golf course. If I want to learn more about specific skills trading asset classes (like learning more about putting, bunker shots, etc.) I need more coaching and understanding of the specific techniques. Overall, I am thrilled with my experience in this class. The facility works very well. Comfortable and well taken care of during the week. The staff is very good and the instructor (Tillie) is extremely interested in making sure the whole class learns the concepts and the technique to move forward with this life changing perspective on trading.”

“I am taking this class with my sister who I Introduced to OTA last year. The program was excellent when I took Pro-Trader last year. This class was excellent! Tillie was able to cover the information of the course, and we had the opportunity to get into more advanced questions and setups. Job well done!!!”

“I was able to take 3 week's worth of classes; it's been long but I have learned a lot in the three weeks. From Tillie to Steve, to John. I have enjoyed all three and feel like I am further along in my learning journey. Again, the experience is wonderful. Not one complaint. The Parking lot has plenty of parking. The OTA staff is wonderful and very helpful. Courtney has breakfast, and lunch every day, first one in last to leave. The course is great. I feel like I have received great info/knowledge that I will be able to carry over In my trading career. The instructor was very helpful in answering everyone's questions. He was able to use analogies to explain the info to people that were having issues understanding.”

“OTA is built around the success of the student. If students are not successful, then OTA is not successful. It is great to be in an environment where everyone is looking out for my success. This is very refreshing to be involved with.”

“Online Trading Academy does a superb job at laying the groundwork for being a successful trader. This class provides you with most basic and fundamental information to dive into the more complicated aspects of trading. It has taught me that learning the terminology and basics makes it much easier to succeed and learn in more difficult situations. My instructor, Tillie Allison, was extremely thorough and detailed in her explanations and recommendations. She never moved on until everyone understood and was on the same page.”

“Nice facility, excellent instructor, good food and drinks, and looking forward to replacing the income level that was previously enjoyed. Good solid training for a new outlook on life. Thanks OTA.”

“I have had a few attempts at trading the markets. I knew people made money at it and I knew the way I was doing it I wasn't one of them. I did a lot of research and decided if this was going to work OTA was my best shot. I can tell you, from sign-up to the Pre-Course work (do the Pre-Course work!), to the Part I and Part II classes and the Post Class chat, OTA is 100% a class act. Tillie Allison was the "Bomb" as an instructor and by the final day I knew I was walking out of here not only knowing more but knowing a whole new class of GREAT people and PEERs. I will sing the praises of OTA, Chris Crum, Matt McGrath, Tillie Allison and the rest of the Kansas City support staff to anyone who is interested in a whole new way of life!”

“OTA is a top-notch organization. The instructors and support people are extremely helpful and approachable. My experience this week is nothing but positive. I very much look forward to taking the skills I've acquired here and putting them into practice.”

“I have gained tremendous knowledge of how the market works and the power of the banks to make markets. Tillie Allison did a wonderful job breaking down the pro-trader class one step at a time, with great understanding and examples to apply the information to everyday life. I am ready to be financially independent, and trading with the mentorship of OTA will be the vehicle to get me there.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Options Class. Steve Moses is a great instructor. He uses meaningful analogies, has high energy, works in some humor and obviously loves what he does. Add this to the great facilities here in Overland Park and the great staff, and you have the ingredients for a first rate experience. I learned more about options in these 5 days than I had learned on my own over many years. I highly recommend this class.”

“Great education on trading with a supportive staff.”

“This program is challenging and is answering many of the questions I have sought for years by providing a tool to help me financially secure my family in retirement. The instructions have been excellent and instructor very patient.”

“Online Trading Academy will teach a person a skill that will allow them to change their lives. A wonderful experience. Highly recommended.”

“I started my training in trading the stock market approximately 3 years ago. My experience with OTA has been by far the best. I like the strategy that is based on using price as the primary indicator and in the use of supply and demand identification in the trading strategy. I would recommend the OTA training to others as well as family members that would benefit from this education. ”

“Pro Trader is a fast paced 7 day class designed to teach the process, rules, and platform at the basic level. There is A LOT of instruction and practical application in a live environment. I expected to walk away understanding "how" and "why" to execute a trade. This class exceeded my expectations. Much like playing a musical instrument, learning the notes doesn't mean one can make music. We've been taught the notes. Practice will make the process easier, and specific training in the desired asset along with the wealth of help offered through OTA will have me playing music very soon. Thanks for a great week!!”

“The Online Trading Academy classes have given me a valuable insight into how to properly manage money, and their supply-demand based program is the most logical strategy I have encountered in my educational pursuits.”

“I was initially reluctant to enroll in the course, fearing those common allegations that this was a scam or con. Then I did my due diligence and found that the only people alleging this were people who had not taken the class. Those who had taken the class report that they enjoyed it and benefited from it. Now that I have taken it, I can say that it is remarkably well designed and delivered; and I have spent a great deal of my life in education. I believe that it has prepared me well for trading and look forward to becoming active in the markets.”

“The instruction received at OTA KC is always relevant to student needs and actionable. I love the sequential approach to trade planning and execution.”

“I learned some very effective ways to find potential trade opportunities and probable order entry and exit points. I especially liked that there was good information presented on 'shorting' because that's a possible trading opportunity that I have been neglecting. It's a way to make money when the market is going down, and the market doesn't crash up!”


“I was excited to attend the Online Trading Academy Professional Trader course, and I can only say the experience met all of my expectations. I learned exactly what I was hoping to learn and look forward to continuing my education at the Academy.”

“I've taken 3 courses so far at the Overland Park facility. This has been a great experience. The faculty, office staff, and facility are the best. Well worth the money.”

“The Kansas City OTA has given me a reason to feel optimistic about me and my family's future. The absolute best investment I have made in my financial education.”

“I was totally floored by the overwhelming content and my perceived complexity of trading. But throughout the course I was assured and reassured that it was something that I can do. The proposed future assistance, "can-do" attitude of the office staff, and available resources convinced me that I made the right decision to continue on with my learning. I am sure that in time, I will become a successful trader and being such will improve my quality of life.”

“The class was a great experience. Scott over delivered and is very knowledgeable about the subject. He also was patient and helped us grasp the concepts of the course. Also, you won't go home hungry they feed you well!!”

“This course will provide the knowledge base and practical experience to enable a novice to begin successful trading. The personnel are courteous and professional. The instructors are knowledgeable and effectively use the time available to insure all students obtain the knowledge and practical experience to become successful.”

“I am so thoroughly satisfied with the quality and professionalism of the staff and the instructors at OTA. Every training session that I have ever been involved in has been pleasant, informative and instructive. Thank you all for keeping your clients involved and excited about market participation and strategies!”

“OTA teaches you how to trade: stocks, forex, futures and options. I think the best thing about OTA is the way they continue to keep you in the loop with additional training (ability to retake a class at no addition charge), and weekly classes on the internet. Plus there are many (hundreds of) articles and videos available 24 hours a day for every conceivable question you may have. They are in it for the long term.”

“If you are willing to work hard and discipline yourself, this program will work. I have no prior trading experience, however, I am confident that I have been provided with the training and resources to be successful.”

“The education experience at Online Trading Academy is invaluable.”

“This course is great. It takes you from being a novice and wondering what will happen to your money on each market trend or big news story. They train you to "develop a plan" so that you can lower your risk, raise your income and secure your wealth for the future. It gives you the confidence and safety to do more proactive investing with your finances. It shows you how much money you are NOT making through your current advisors.”

“If you want to take a little time to learn a lot of valuable and profitable real world skills, this is the apex of the real deal.”

“I really enjoyed taking this class. I now feel like I understand my path to become a professional trader. I am most excited about the community that you get along the way to support you through your journey.”

“I am sincerely grateful that I've found OTA from listening to Power Trading Radio on the talk station on Saturdays and Sundays. These courses have been life changing for me in that I feel empowered to not only manage my portfolio, but to increase dramatically my holdings. It's true that the 'Rich Get Richer’ because of this 'specialized knowledge' and OTA has the whole package!”

“Online Trading Academy (Kansas City, MO area) is a very well-run learning organization. I would highly recommend this academy to people who wish to learn or relearn and understand more about how asset markets work. I think it is important to know how to manage one's own financial assets, and this academy is very good at instruction in this area. I expect very good results in my financial future relating to long-term investments and short-term income opportunities. ”

“The whole experience was positive. I do not have a regret or negative thing to say.”

“Online Trading Academy has given me a very positive insight into my future financial potential for both income and wealth. This experience has been amazing, and I have only just begun! I wish I had learned this powerful information years ago!!”

“As a Pastor who invests into the lives of people, I know that this is one of the best investments that I have made in myself since I completed Theology School. The Information that was given during the class equipped me to be prepared to set my trading goals and to begin trading. This opportunity has been an answer to prayer! It also helped me to understand the truth of the Proverb, "A fool and his money are soon parted." Thomas Tusser. Even though this quote is non-biblical, I do not want to be foolish with what God has entrusted to me! So, don't be a fool, come to trading school! Chaplain Ken Moore”

“OTA teaches a core strategy that enables you to trade many asset classes. In addition, the instructors bring a rich and varied background to each class. This allows the student to explore many subtle variations of trading to find the plan that fits them best.”

“Great learning environment and very well organized learning material to use.”

“The Online Trading Academy is truly a unique way to learn about stock trading and the path to greater wealth through day trading. The quality of the instruction and the instructors was superb. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to attend their initial trading course.”

“The information I gained at OTA is LIFE-CHANGING. OTA filters out what you don't need to know, and gives you the tools to be a successful investor. I would recommend this to anyone!”

“Online Trading Academy does a great job in breaking things down into the basics. The facility is kept very clean and comfortable. The instructors and educators do the best they can to make something that seems so foreign become something anyone can understand.”

“I have taken Pro Trader, Pro Forex Trader and Pro Futures Trader. The instructors gave me a great start in my trading career. I recommend these courses to friends and family all the time! You won't be disappointed.”

“Personnel were friendly and willing to take time to address questions and clarify information if at all possible.”

“Others need to understand that a journey of 1,000 leagues begins with a single step. That first step at Online Trading Academy is to take a small bit of time to attend a Workshop complete with a meal. That few hours will be an eye opener to the possibility of a huge change in your life. One doesn't just pay some money and take some classes. One becomes a student of Online Trading Academy with unlimited resources always available, and it continues to be added to every day.”

“The staff of Online Trading Academy Kansas City did an excellent job and are a very friendly bunch.”

“Online Trading Academy - KC ALWAYS provides a great environment. The way this course was structured, it really helped me narrow down a strategy and trading style that I need to use.”

“I had a general knowledge of markets and trading prior to hearing about Online Trading Academy. I knew that there was wealth lurking within the charts but did not have the proper education or confidence to take action. I have read many books and much commentary on trading, but still felt I was not being taught what was necessary or reasonable. After attending the informative class, I knew immediately that Online Trading Academy offered what I had been unable to find for years. I then attended the course and was absolutely blown away by Rick. Even with as excited as I was, I would have never expected the level of skillful and thoughtful teaching as I received from Rick. Through Online Trading Academy's program, I will be a successful trader and now know I am equipped with the proper education and confidence to act. What a life changing experience.”

“The Online Trading Academy class more than met my expectations. Jeff Manson was an excellent instructor and the staff was friendly and helpful. I appreciate the positive atmosphere and knowing that the experts became that way by building a solid foundation under themselves and following their plan. ”

“I truly value every minute that I get to spend with the instructors at Online Trading Academy. Everything from the community of traders, one on one experience with the instructor, practice in the live and simulated modes, to watching live XLT's AND trading right along with the pros..... I LOVE IT ALL! Online Trading Academy is changing my life. Each day I am getting one step closer to achieving my goal of being a stay at home mom with an AMAZING INCOME! Thank you, Online Trading Academy!”

“Great stuff from Online Trading Academy KC!!”

“Behind every student in this class is a family that the instructor does not see. This program is a positive, life-changing experience - not only for the student but for their family as well. Thank you for such an opportunity and special thanks to each of the professional traders who are willing to share their insights and expertise with us each day.”

“Taking this course was one of the greatest moves we have taken in our life. We are about to reach the age of 80 in just a few months. This has opened the door to a complete change of direction to start a new opportunity with the best of help surrounding us. Online Trading Academy is the best place ever to high quality instruction and backup information wherever you turn. Thank you for an amazing opportunity to excel.”

“The Online Trading Academy offers a great student/instructor training experience for both the beginner and experienced trader. The knowledge and experience of the instructors, combined with the classroom environment, offers an exceptional path for financial independence but also an opportunity to meet people in a variety of situations you can easily relate to. Brandon Wendell was an outstanding instructor I would highly recommend, and I can't say enough about the friendly staff in the Kansas City office.”

“The instructor, Scott, was great and the whole staff at the Trading Academy was awesome. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone wanting to trade!!!!.”

“I first heard about Online Trading Academy on the radio while heading to work and am happy that I decided to attend classes. Both my wife and I have learned so much from this class and are looking forward to continuing our education as professional traders.”

“If you have any interest in trading successfully, you MUST give yourself the gift of an education - with guidance and support available, not just a book or two on trading. Online Trading Academy provides tremendous support vehicles in addition to its actual curriculum - all given by those who have actual and extensive experience in the markets. Tough to beat that!”

“Katy was great, everyone awesome. Online Trading Academy has given me a second chance to have a great life in the future. Thanks for everything.”


“I find the people here at the school, both the staff and the other students, to be the highest caliber of quality that I could ask for as friends and cohorts, and I anticipate staying in touch with my Trading Community.”

“The information that was presented in the class was top notch, but the ability and experience level of the instructors to be able to put it in terms that were understandable and backed up by experience was the key.
