Get Started with Your Financial Education

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.

    Using professional tools is critical to ensure you get the best price and manage risk appropriately. Learn how the pros trade with a direct access workstation and Level II pricing data that shows you the power behind the markets in real time.

  • Charting and Technical Analysis

    Learn how to recognise an imbalance of supply and demand on a price chart in order to plan your entry and exit points. Identify which technical indicators are valuable odds-enhancers, and which can be safely ignored.

What Students Are Saying

“I really enjoyed the Core strategy program, I wish I had discovered Online Trading Academy earlier! The tutor was very knowledgeable and explained concepts thoroughly, and was always ready to answer questions. Core strategy is all about reading and interpreting price charts, but is grounded in basic economics of Supply & Demands-which makes it credible as a strategy, and one that can be consistently applied. The course is well-paced with plenty of opportunity to apply the taught techniques. Looking forward to attending my Forex class.”

“This Core Strategy programme is truly on point; I welcome this development. I found the structure of the course coherent, logical and well balanced between teaching, discussion and practical learning. The range of pre-essential activities and required follow-up I shall use to maintain my learning momentum. Brilliant! Just the right balance between support and challenge. Louise is an outstanding Teacher. I am an Educational Psychologist by profession..... so I know about good teachers. ”

“Core strategy day 1, o my god. Day 2, what have I put myself into; will I ever get this? Day 3, afternoon, I got it! A brilliant course, excellent instructor with fantastic staff; not forgetting Opal's lovely food.”

“The course is clear and concise. The lecturer, Stephen, having once been an OTA student, and now a successful trader, was very capable of relating to his students which helped enormously. The strategy, whilst basically simple has elements that require many hours of study and practise to gain refinement, rather like playing a piano. I'm excited to accept the challenge.”

“I am an OTA Pro-Trader graduate from 2009 who learned all about technical analysis using Support and Resistant. Throw away all what you were taught, because the process of identifying proper Supply and Demand teaches you what you really need to know about correct entry and exit zones within a price chart.”
