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. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

“Core is an inordinate wealth of knowledge which cannot be passed on from just skimming articles on websites and trying to ascertain on one's own. It takes true traders teaching fledgling traders the skills to survive on their own. In a sense, OTA teaches you the skill of fishing and gives you fish whilst you learn.”

“At first, I wasn't sure I had made the right decision due to my lack of knowledge in this field. After completing core strategy, I can say that it is what it is. Core strategy is very comprehensive, it empowers you to take control of your future. My class was a very diverse group from different professional backgrounds which made it interesting and fun. The instructor was very patient with us and supported us according to our needs and level.”
