“I always enjoy the OTA training whether it is online, live or XLT. There are always nuggets to take away, regardless of if you are new or returning or refreshing.”

“Online Trading Academy gives a different perspective to trading stocks and options that I have never seen before. Rather than listening to CNBC or stock advisers, we learned a scientific approach to improving our chances of successful and profitable trading. It is unlikely to find only winning trades, but by careful investing with the scientific approach, the winning dollar amounts will exceed the losing amounts, whether we are in a rising market or a falling one.”


“I took my first class, Pro Trader, in 2014 at the Secaucus Center. Thanksgiving of that year, I became ill. The recovery lasted for over three years. I started again by retaking the classes as soon as I found out there was a new center open much closer to home, in Freehold, N.J. Pro Trader changed to Core Strategy. The trading concepts of Core were even better. That was my first experience with retakes, and I really appreciated being able to do that at no additional expense. As I went through my retakes and review classes, I got to know to know the staff and some of the instructors that were there to teach and observe, as well as the owners of the franchise I joined. EVERYONE from the top down, including the other students I've met, have been so positive, helpful and pleasant. I truly feel like I'm part of a family. Don't be swayed by any competitive negative reviews given by anyone. From day one, my experiences with OTA have been ABSOLUTELY and WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT a blessing. With the advent of CliK and the new tools coming out, I feel like this has been the BEST investment I've ever made in myself and would do it all over again without question.”

“I was pleasantly surprised by OTA. The trading curriculum, instructors and platform (CliK) alike are without a doubt simply the best. If you are looking to learn or enhance your trading skills, you MUST be part of this great academy. I have nothing but good things to say about these guys. Outstanding!”

“The new platform is a game changer. Awesome technology.”

“I truly enjoyed this program because everything taught in the class was not only useful, but taught in a way that really makes sense.”

“I started in 2015... I stopped in 2017....I came back when I got the invite for CliK... I think it’s needless to say that CliK seems to have made the difference... I want to trade again.”

“The overall education experience was excellent because of the combination of a good physical environment, good class content, appropriately paced review of class material, and hands-on application of knowledge gained using the CliK platform.”

“The community of OTA is special. The interaction between the teacher and other students is so important for the confidence and the skills for trading. The best investment I ever made was becoming an OTA student.”

“The Core Strategy class was awesome! It was my introduction to the world of trading and I'm grateful because it gave me an advantage that other novice traders don't have! Before coming to OTA, I watched YouTube videos, trying to find my way and along the way lost money! Then one day, an OTA ad came on, and the rest is history! #TeamOTA”

“For people who are completely new to trading, OTA provides a thoughtful nearly mechanical system that if followed correctly will lead to profits.”

“It was extremely well presented; Bobbie is truly engaging. I would have expected to go home exhausted, but even after 7 days, I was more energetic than I imagined possible. It was exciting learning new information and having the opportunity to practice it.”

“The strategy works! We have been given an opportunity to learn a process that has been tried and proven to be successful. The people here are very determined to ensure that you are successful in becoming a professional trader. After just one course, I feel positioned to move forward in my quest to be the trader I know I will one day become.”

“The OTA Core Strategy courses has provided me continuous personal growth in knowledge and confidence to properly manage my trading and financial growth.”

“This is a whole new world and I am MOST excited about being an OTA student because their patented technique allows for mistakes and still being profitable. It has truly calmed my anxiety because it has confirmed for me that I can earn as I learn. Thank you for always having the student in mind, especially students who are working full-time and/or making career changes. This allows us to move forward with confidence.”

“Investing in my Why with the Mastermind curriculum at Online Trading Academy has been one the best decisions of my life. I am always learning and the continual improvements within the OTA system, network, curriculum, and community are a constant source of encouragement and actionable information. The instructors are amazing, the staff is professional, and the NJ Ridgefield Park campus is an especially warm learning environment. The power of association within the overall OTA community is a huge positive influence. Thank you!”

“Exceptional instructors that take what many folks believe is a complicated subject and distill it to understandable elements.”

“OTA has a cadre of great teachers that not only know their subject, they excel at teaching it with passion.”

“OTA taught me more in 7 days than I learned in a year of finance courses! The aftercare support is massive and I look forward to continuing my education and building on the foundation I learned in Core Strategy.”

“Very fast-paced, must be committed to doing the work in class and afterwards at home, not just sitting in class and listening to the lectures. For those that commit, very rewarding.”

“Great place to learn and grow your knowledge. OTA Ridgefield goes in depth details and covers all topics and areas from beginners to expert to provide the full training and guidance on trading strategy.”

“I am always impressed with the way the Ridgefield Park center is run, it makes being there such a pleasant experience. It feels like family, very friendly and welcoming.”

“Online Trading Academy is a great resource if you're ready to trade and to learn.”

“I am totally new at trading. Taking classes at OTA has helped me to become comfortable with understanding the trading world but also placing orders for income. I am truly grateful for the experience.”

“The training of staff, teachers, the information given is amazing and the setup for learning is excellent.”

“This program cuts the learning curve by several years. Teachers are very knowledgeable and always willing to help.”

“I had a bad accident almost 2 years ago and was looking for a new career late in my life. I found OTA and its family and could not be happier with my choice to invest my time and money with these people.”

“I am very appreciative of all the work that is involved in making sure us students have a successful, detail oriented, learning experience. This has been an incomparable experience to the point that I am not only grateful to have the opportunity to fund my education but also thrilled to continue growing with OTA.”

“The teacher, students support and all staff are interested in the student success. I recommend OTA to family, friends and to anyone interested in learning how to trade.”

“Once you join OTA you do feel that you are part of a family. There is a wealth of knowledge that becomes available to you and the teachers are happy to help you.”

“OTA has opened my eyes to the errors of my past negative investment strategies. I will never go back to my old ways thanks to OTA!”

“OTA core strategy seems complex at first but after 2 days in class it is easy to follow simple steps. Looking forward to XLTs to continue my trading education. ”

“I learned a lot in the past seven days. I am also very grateful for the instructor I had. I feel like I took a huge step towards my goals. ”


“I was very skeptical about the OTA because my friends told me they might be scammers looking to rip people off, but that was proven wrong on my very first day with Tom Joyce as a patient and a dedicated instructor. Once you enter the facility, it is like you're walking into a family reunion. Friendly staff eager to assist and answer your questions, from time to time someone came in to check if everything is ok. You can almost walk to any one of the staff members for assistance and questions on your assignment. Truly, my seven days Core Strategy class was worth the money and the time. I enjoy their food; I love the instructor and wish him all my best wishes.”

“One of the best decisions I have made! Being trained in the OTA program has opened up unlimited options in my future. I now have control over my financial knowledge and trading skills. OTA provides a platform in which I am continually learning and expanding. ”

“My original class was taken in 2014 in Secaucus. Before I could start trading I fell ill and didn't do anything for 4 years. This was a retake for me. Being able to come back and pick up where I left off in a center closer to home and an improved class at no additional cost has been truly phenomenal. My instructor, Craig Weil, was very patient, experienced and knowledgeable. After sharing with him the illness that "took me out" for a while, he offered to do whatever he could to help me get on my feet and become a successful trader. This return to the fold has me feeling joyful and hopeful. Everyone in the Freehold, NJ center has been as warm, friendly and helpful as the staff that moved from Secaucus to Ridgefield, NJ. I would recommend that anyone with a dream to prosper, time to spare, and a desire to learn from warm, friendly, unselfish individuals become a part of OTA!”

“Adrienn and I have been to the 7 day Core Strategy classes, and after being in plenty of other educational platforms we can assure that there are no other schools with the quality of OTA. Their methods exceed the student's expectations in every single level. If you wish to take your life to a whole new higher level, OTA can surely get you there.”

“If you're interested in trading, Online Trading Academy is the best place to go to. I know I wouldn't have been able to learn all of this on my own in such a short time. It is more valuable than my college education because it teaches how to manage risk and make money. Through hard work and discipline in following the Core Strategy, I know I'll get a significant return on investment. It feels great to learn how to be in control of my money and invest in my whys.”

“Overall, this is a very supportive community. The education is great and I think a necessary financial tool in order to survive and thrive today. I am already thinking about when I could send my young daughter to learn this strategy at an early age so she won't have to go through the same financial struggles that I always had to go through.”

“It is worth every penny for attending these classes. Great experience and overall great teachers with excellent knowledge of markets. Will recommend this to every person that is interested in trading.”

“OTA is the best school to trade the markets the right way.”

“I was somewhat apprehensive when I started to understand what OTA offered, but after going through Core Strategy I know that I made the right decision and investment in myself. Fantastic instructor, Tom Joyce, whose enthusiasm impacted everyone in the classroom, and the support from the OTA team was priceless. I have confirmed to myself after spending 7 days in the Core that this is a life-style change that I will benefit from as I continue into my 'sunset' career' after leaving the Corporate environment ship. Sincere thanks, OTA!”

“I am grateful to have been exposed to such important information that, used properly, can change the course of my life. I was blessed to have an incredible instructor who made highly technical subject matter easy to understand. I also appreciate the level of assistance, with lifetime retake availability, and sooo many online tutorials that I feel like OTA actually has a stake in my success. Boosts my comfort level leaving the class. ”

“Everyone says Options are dangerous or difficult. They are not with the right teacher and course materials. Highly recommended as Options both create and protect wealth.”

“I enjoyed every day of the program, but my favorite part was the contest Sal prepared on our last day of class. We had the opportunity to trade real money, sense our emotions, apply our knowledge and deal with P/L. It was Awesome!!!”

“If you really want to know how to make money in the market, you need an education. The best education is found at OTA.”

“My entire career has been in the financial markets, 90% fixed income and 10% equities. I think the way the program is structured is perfect for both non-financial and financial industry experts. I believe to have someone like Scott Chrisan who can teach the academy program, as well as lend his actual trading experience to the program, is a win for all. Everyone is willing to help you get thru the program, from registering, student support to the instructors. The entire team wants everyone to be successful....AMEN!”

“I could not ask for a better program. After two years, I am able to come back from life's struggles and retake the core strategy course with the same instructor I had before (coincidence). I realized all I needed was a refresher because the concepts I learned in my initial class stuck like glue. Thanks for everything! Special thanks to The General!”

“As a beginner, this program was an ideal starting point to foray into the world of trading. I indeed learnt a lot of basics & more complex nuances. Appreciate the instructor (Scott Chrisan a.k.a. Guruji) taking his unique approach for the 7 day core program.”

“If you really want to know how the rich stay rich and get richer, you WANT to take this class. If you want to secure your future, you WANT to take this class. If you want to live in a life of abundance, you NEED to take this class!”

“Excellent program overall. If you are serious about being a trader or investor, OTA is the place to receive your education. The people here are great as well, friendly and helpful.”

“Didn't think I would be able to remember what I was learning, but the 7 day length of the class and structure of the lessons (each day builds upon the previous day's material) make it possible for anyone to understand the reasoning behind the Core Strategy and why it makes so much sense! I was hoping to develop new habits ... this class has allowed me to do so and to wonder why anyone would ever trade without this knowledge in any market!”

“Everything about the class is first-rate -- the facilities, the instructor, the materials given to students, the attitude of both students and Center staff, and even the breakfast and lunch provided every day!! Anyone who has a sincere desire to learn about trading or investing in stocks will benefit greatly from this exceptions!!”

“Online Trading Academy is a very professional learning center. The staff is knowledgeable and always willing to answer your questions. They give you the tools to be a successful trader - it is up to you. My 7 days went by quickly and I met a lot of nice people in the process.”

“It's the only place that shows you a very accurate way to trade all markets, and with evidence to back it up. Very good to help maintain consistency. Thanks.”

“I wish I could have known about this school many years back. It's been amazing getting my financial education in this institution. The staff and all instructors are very supportive and encouraging. I am in the right path now toward a successful career in the financial world. Thank you, OTA.”

“The instructors are amazing, OTA is a great environment to learn. ”

“This was a great start to the success I have been seeking. I feel super motivated to go after my goals now that I have the tools to get me there.”

“Seeing is believing - the methodology taught was demonstrated time and again throughout the week, providing great reinforcement. You don't know what you don't know (until you do!). This was truly an education as I learned that I didn't know as much as I thought before the class and now have a much better understanding of not only what, but also why I should do to be successful!”

“Everyone on the staff was very helpful throughout the day, every day. We also had some up and coming instructors in our class which took time throughout the week to answer questions, hands on help & advance our learning process. Scot Stokes was an excellent instructor with patience, discipline and humor. Lunch was yummy as well.”

“The OTA Program has helped me have total control over my finances and pension funds.”

“OTA FOREX Trader Course is a not a get rich quick scheme, the content seems intense at first, but made very clear through constant practice and guidance during class and homework. The instructor (Jody Wong) had a way of making it very easy to understand, and most of all tells me what I need to hear and not what I want to hear and I respect that. I love the real world examples; my favorite part is when we were introduced to some common mindsets that a trader needs to overcome and defined our, what is my WHY?”

“OTA has a consistent, methodical approach to managing risk. The instructors are great! Knowledgeable and proficient. The support staff has been amazing! No question is too trivial. I'm glad that I took the RISK (lol) and joined.”

“I found Online Trading Academy to be a very exciting place for an opportunity to take back my finances. They seem to be very determined to assure that all their students succeed. You have support online and the ability to come in and revisit anything you might be insecure about. That foundation is very encouraging.”

“The Core Strategy course was my first OTA course. Seven days packed full of information, detailed explanations, real world and current examples, and labs to teach us the proven process to become profitable traders. The course was excellent and exceeded my expectations. Already looking forward to my next course!”

“OTA has impacted my life, for the rest of my life. I look forward to seeing the ripple effect carry on throughout my family and the lives of all my loved ones as they join me in becoming members of OTA. I am now looking forward to my Futures Asset Program next week. For everyone in Jersey, I look forward to possibly meeting you at the center.”

“OTA is the best program I have ever participated in for training in financial/retirement planning and gaining trading expertise in all sorts of asset classes about which I had very little knowledge, such as options and futures. OTA's educational resources and its support for us as students is outstanding. And OTA is constantly revising and improving its courses and course materials so that our learning experience is always getting better.”

“Definitely glad I came to OTA. This is the information that I have been seeking to find financial freedom and enjoy my life instead of the never ending 9-5. These guys and gals take the time out to answer any question you have and will point you to more information if needed. The amount of content and information they provide you is unreal and you have lifetime access! Yes, I said LIFETIME. Thanks, OTA. Glad we crossed paths!”

“For anyone seriously looking to step into the markets, either professionally or casually, the OTA's processes and strategies cannot be beat. The Core Strategy is a game changer and the experience of the staff was invaluable to me. I wish I had known about the OTA sooner!”

“If you are looking to accelerate your trading success, using OTA's methods and rules will help create the right discipline to improve your likelihood of success.”

“I would recommend this course to anyone looking to grow both their knowledge and portfolios beyond the lagging returns of a corporate 401k, or wishing they understood the potential of the stock market. Knowledge is power. This school guides their students toward great financial opportunities of success.”


“After taking the futures class with Jeff, I feel confident that I can start trading slowly. The support that OTA offers is second to none. However, you must be willing to do the work. Listen to the podcast of Power Trading Radio, take advantage of the webinars through OTA or possibly TradeStation to master the platform. Each person learns differently and connects with different instructors.”

“As long as you're committed to following this program, OTA is a fantastic school for trading. The instructors are the best in the industry; shout out to Jeff Manson, futures instructor. Very recommended.”

“So far this program has exceeded my expectations and I'm really looking forward to completing Futures and Proactive Trader. The student support that the academy provides during and post classes is exceptional, which will assist students in their future success.”

“Everyone at the academy is extremely helpful. They go out of their way to help you understand how to be a profitable trader. Many different ideas and angle are presented to you so you can find one that best fits your personality and style of trading. My wife and I are extremely happy with the results we got from OTA and would encourage anyone considering getting into trading to start with OTA to increase their odds of being successful.”

“I've always wanted to learn how to trade my own money without mediators, but never found a way until I won a three day class through my favorite radio station. That class was the light at the end of the tunnel and a door to a new world. I'm so thankful, Online Trading Academy is what I've always looked for! High quality education combined with great mentors and instructors that will help you along the journey whether you're just beginning or you have trading experience. I totally recommend it!”

“I have never ever had any school or learning institution give me the support and encouragement I have experienced with Online Trading Academy. I learn new things each time I take or retake a course. As far as retakes, I've never known a school or learning institution that allows retakes. OTA wants you to succeed. I haven't done so yet, but with their help, I will be able to successfully trade in the future.”

“I don't know of any school that encourages you to take classes over again in order to fine-tune your understanding. OTA is so invested in my success. And I am so grateful. Instructor, Jody Wong, has helped me understand price action, the impact of news, and adding on to a profitable trade.”

“Great learning opportunity, with exciting teacher and support personnel.”

“I have just completed Core Strategy. I feel like the instructors couldn't have done a better job of building my foundation for trading. I can only hope I will make them proud by succeeding beyond all expectations in the coming months. No group has made me feel more welcome after only a few days. The support has been fantastic!”

“It's amazing that the young girl who wanted to be on the stock market floor, chose to go in another direction due to not thinking she was ready due to lack of understanding stocks, is now apart of the On Line Trading Academy from a free day class that helped her understand 100% shorts, stops, selling at supply and buying on demand. All from a retail and wholesale approach! It was from a ONE day class that I was empowered to continue my journey into the reinvention of Tiffany Phillips and continue to shape my life my way! This was by far one of my best decisions!”

“I am really thankful for this institution. I never dreamt of doing something like this before. I have been curious and had quite a few concerns coming into the program, but after realizing the reputation of the institution, the quality of the instructors and their expertise, the lack of any negative ratings or news on the web, the high degree of success of students, among other factors, I am very confident that I have made the right choice. The staff is excellent. Some of the instructors were once student, such as Luis and others. They are phenomenal people who just want to see other people succeed. My Core Strategy instructor is great as well. This company/institution has a reputation to uphold, and I can see that they are doing everything to uphold it.”

“OTA is helping me to achieve the financial security that I am striving towards for my retirement. I have been very concerned about retirement but I'm on the path to success and security because of OTA. Don't waste another minute worrying, take action and do something about it. OTA is right move.”

“The teaching is top notch. The environment is inviting set with a family atmosphere. With a staff that show they truly care. I met so many like-minded individuals and made friends as well. I loved my experience at OTA. It was everything I hoped it would be for me.”

“The program is very educational and informative. For someone who knew nothing when I went in, I did learn a lot but have a long way to go. Everyone was very professional, courteous and friendly. It was very clean and very easy to park. The young lady at the front desk kept the sign in quick and efficient. She also made sure all the students were taken care of at lunch time and kept the lunch area immaculate. She was a pleasure!”

“The program provides a short term and long term path for beginners and advanced traders who want to simply manage their portfolios with stops or become day traders by profession. The course and academy itself is not one of memory but steady progression with ability for individuals at any level to understand and trade successfully in the various markets with consistency.”

“Online Trading Academy gave me something that money can't buy, confidence and support, so yes it's a great place to learn to trade but it's more than that. The owners and the staff are genuine and knowledgeable from the top down and for that I am grateful. Dmitry Zhukovin, OTA student for life!”

“The Core Strategy Program was excellent. Instructor, Scot Stokes, was caring and patient and is a master of timing the markets. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in increasing their probability of making money in the short or long term. I am excited about increasing my education and learning by taking the other courses offered by Online Trading Academy. The support offered during and after the courses is incredible. I am happy to join the Online Trading Academy Family.”

“I was very impressed with the training at the Ridgefield Park Online Trading Academy. I have been trading on and off for many years and decided it was time to really get serious. I am normally very skeptical about trading instructors but decided to look into OTA after my brother took some classes and had some great success trading the futures markets. The more I learned about OTA the more interested I became. I have taken a few classes there (1/2 day, 3 day, and 7 day Core Strategy Class) and I came out of the class feeling very confident. The Instructor, Scot Stokes, was very knowledgeable and taught the class well. His ability to explain the Core concepts and have the students use those concepts to find and execute trades makes me feel much better about turning trading into a business instead of treating it like a hobby as I have done in the past. The on-going support they offer will help ensure that I succeed. Yes, it will require a lot of work, but I feel it is worth it.”

“OTA is a program all people should take to have a better understanding of their own investments. Why pay high commission fees if you can do it yourself. Invest the's worth it.”

“Instructor cleared all the muddle out. and cleared up a lot of things. Class was very interesting and productive.”

“I believe in supply and demand. OTA's clear and consistent use of this economic principle with the potential to be a great trader drew me to this program. The support and mentoring beyond class instruction is what takes a great strategy beyond the classroom into success in life.”

“It's eye opening to see the other side of the trade and be able to hitch a ride. I've been looking at charts for years, but never like this. Thank you, OTA. Thank you, Stephen.”

“I've taken many accelerated courses in my lifetime but none to compare to OTA. Just when doubt crosses your mind and you think to yourself 'what did I get myself into', you jump right into live activities only to realize you get it. You understand more than you think. I might have heard the instructor say about a hundred times "trust the process." I now trust the process.”

“In this economic climate, I am absolutely ecstatic that this school exists for the little man. We need someone who will present an opportunity to level the economic playing field in this very capitalistic society. I love this school!!!!! The warm family caring feeling, it feels like they really care and the center is clean and accessible for whatever you need. Even the owners!!!! That is customer service to the highest degree!!!!!!!”

“Even though I have been lightly to moderately trading since 2002, after taking this class, I realize my novice status and that there is so much more to learn. And Online Trading Academy is the right place to increase my skills and confidence towards a much better financial future. Online Trading Academy provides a great environment to further my financial education. It is located close to my home. There are plenty of convenient parking spaces. The classrooms and office space are neat, clean, and professional. The staff are down to earth and easy to speak with. I look forward to many successful years at OTA.”

“Futures April 2017 was a retake for me. I continue getting new and more complete insight into trading and feel I am making progress. The instructors at OTA are superior. There doesn't seem to be any question they can't answer, and always with patience and understanding. They truly want you to learn. OTA has great resources. For trader training, this is the place to be.”

“With zero trading experience, I feel OTA offered the perfect guidance and trading strategies. My knowledge and confidence trading has steadily increased over my time here.”

“I LOVED IT. OTA knows how to educate the uneducated.”

“I would describe the team of people involved with the OTA as professional, friendly, honest and excellent in their various jobs. I had some doubts before coming here but by lunchtime all my doubts had evaporated.”

“OTA is at the top of their game and I would recommend everyone interested with bettering their life and lifestyle to take their offer of a free opportunity to find out how! Their centers are more than anyone could image them to be.”

“Now I know I can trade forex in a short time chart. Love the way Jody taught us how to intraday the forex market. Like always, a very nice atmosphere to learn how to trade. By the way, Angela is the best when it comes to the performance and amenities of this place.”

“After a week of basic training, I really feel ready to begin identifying trading opportunities in stocks. I have a very positive experience at the Ridgefield Pk center. Keep up the good work! Angela, the administrator, and Scott, the instructor, are really awesome.”


“Online Trading Academy is a great school. The staff and instructors really care about your understanding and your well-being as a student. The facility is superb, creating a great learning environment.”

“I knew NOTHING about the markets prior to OTA so I had a lot of questions for my instructor. All which were met with patience and thorough knowledge. I gained a very clear understanding of how the market works and how very possible it is to predict its moves. I am happy and looking forward to learning from such great teachers. The Pro Trader class certainly opened my eyes to the opportunities at my fingertips.”

“The ability to learn the trade secrets that set the masses apart is truly wonderful. I will always feel that OTA and its students are on the same side of the trade. Your guiding hand and drive will continue to inspire all of us throughout our years. Thank you so much.”

“Jeff and the other instructors are making the journey very enjoyable. A lot of information that is given for our use and all of the folks at OTA are extremely helpful.”

“The center is in a good location off the major highways and it is very convenient to get to. The parking facility is a great and easy to get to. Everyone at the facility is very kind and helpful; you can tell that they really care. The Pro Trader Futures class was excellent. I learned so much information on how to truly apply the lessons to my personal trading.”

“My OTA experience was delivered with professionalism and congeniality in every sense. Online Trading Academy never fails to deliver excellence. I notice improvements and advances in each time I take or retake classes as my participation is rather frequent.”

“I have never understood (or believed in) the merits of technical stock trading. Consider me a convert! OTA's classes in equities, and in options, which I have taken, were informative, filled with useful information and very user friendly--both on the part of the instructors and on the part of my fellow students.”

“With so many out there who have their own interest in mind & how they can get one over on you, it's refreshing to have the academy who will instruct you very well & develop trust that will give you confidence for the marketplace.”

“Hello everyone, Online Trading Academy to me is a life changing opportunity. I love the fact that anyone can learn how to trade in many markets. They give so much support and treat everyone like family. You get lifetime support. What else could anyone ask for to become successful? Thank you.”

“Online Trading Academy has the best professional and experienced traders in the industry. Professional, educational, clean facilities and friendly staff. Someone in class referred to it as the online eating academy. As a former trainer, I noticed that they use professionally prepared course training materials and videos; they were clear and easy to understand.”

“I appreciated the genuine concern for our general financial welfare in training us to keep our trading conservative while we are just gaining experience. I also appreciated the emphasis on just the basics to successful trading. Bill was very patient and encouraging as he guided our thinking through the trading processes.”

“Online Trading Academy is truly a great way to learn something new that you will not learn in college, coming from a college student. A huge plus is that you can retake the class and not have to pay for it for the second of third time you may take it. One thing I enjoyed was the food for lunch time. I would highly recommend it for anyone that wants to learn about stocks and how they work and how to make money on them. Luis Moreno”

“The class was loaded with information! We now have the tools to start a new means of income. Every person at OTA is a professional; Chris, Angela, Dennis, as well as all the rest are a great team to know are in my corner in the new adventure of trading.”

“I've spent the last 8 years or so buying books and teaching myself how to trade... running into walls, not getting in at a certain price and a ton of frustration. After the first day in class it was like taking the blue pill from the Matrix. I understood everything that I was doing wrong and I was excited to begin learning a better process. And I have thanks to OTA.”

“OTA has a unique approach to trading with its core strategy. By itself however, the strategy is not enough for a new student. I believe that the experience, knowledge and most importantly, the teaching ability of an instructor is paramount to learning for students. OTA instructors are a clear differentiator for me along with the "family" atmosphere that the academy promotes. Thank You!”

“I did enjoy the program; lots of information to absorb in a short time, but very helpful in getting started on your lifestyle of trading. I have a better understanding of trading than when I first walked through the doors of OTA. It's also comforting knowing you have the support necessary you help you achieve.”

“Probably the only place to learn trading by actually trading during market hours with real money. This is the best course for anyone wanting to learn trading from real life experts with experience. Very practical. Very intense practical trading session with right amount of presentation.”

“OTA is an excellent trading school. The classes provide valuable information, the booklets and handouts are extremely helpful. The instructors are on top of their game; staff is helpful and courteous. OTA provides learning tools for life, and their online education videos help us learn and review the information whenever we want. Thank you OTA, so happy we found you!”

“I absolutely love the program; everybody is wonderful, Chris, Bill, Bob, Angela, Paul, Denis, Scott, Jose and the rest of the family. You Guys and Gals are so AWESOME.”

“I'm trading (successfully) for more than 30 years, making some additional income aside of my full day activity. OTA opened me up to a completely new world of trading. I'm expecting to become much more successful doing trading and have more fun doing it as a team interacting with my student colleagues and instructors.”

“"My somewhat unexpected encounter with the Online Trading Academy has led to a major paradigm shift in my life. The high quality teaching and training at the Academy, and the in-depth knowledge of every OTA instructor whom I have had class with since then have far passed my expectations. I am glad to have become a member of the OTA community, and I'm looking forward to keep learning and trading.”

“The Online Trading Academy is not just a course. It is a true academy with an excellent website hosting, support material and access to experienced traders and instructors beyond the classroom time.”

“The faculty at OTA is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. They are totally student oriented and very supportive. There doesn't seem to be any question they can't answer.”

“Scot Stokes is a superb instructor. I cannot believe there could be any better instructor here. Kevin Valentine is tops - for coaching and many thanks to Chris for all his help.”

“Very comprehensive and structured program. The instructor was very clear and took time to go over anything that was questioned. Very comfortable learning environment that emulates a feeling of success. I am confident that my decision to attend OTA is one of the best decisions I have made.”

“This program excels at instilling confidence and insight within a proactive community while working toward a common goal.”

“Online Trading Academy provides real life examples. The staff is very engaging. The class is taught in real time trading examples. You will be given a wealth of information.”

“If you're truly interested in finally learning how to make your money work for you, JOIN THIS SCHOOL!”

“Well, I personally found the material to be highly relevant to my needs, and my instructor's knowledge and willingness to help me realize my goals to be exceptional.”

“OTA is the best.”

“The Online Trading Academy provides the resources and education to make me a smarter investor. I have the independence that I do not have to depend on a Financial Planner to invest my money. It gives me the opportunity to learn how to control my own financial wealth.”


“This school, its staff and all of its instructors are nothing short of AMAZING!”

“If someone wants to augment their income or change employment, this is probably the best way to achieve this goal while still earning an income.. I would highly recommend this route.”

“The staff who work at OTA are all very helpful and friendly. They are truly concerned about your success and making money from the class. The course you're signing up for is lifetime, you can always come back to review the course if you have any question.”

“If stocks are a preferred choice for making money, then there is no better option on the planet for making this happen. And in this fast changing, volatile economic environment, financial security is a basic starting point for anyone. OTA has found an answer to ensuring financial stability.”

“The education given in the trading academy is not something I can go to the highly thought Universities and obtain by paying high premiums. This is a special education.”

“It was a great experience where I learned tons. Thank you for it.”

“The new facilities at Ridgefield Park, NJ are wonderful with good connectivity to the internet and are very conducive to training.”

“An excellent opportunity to increase investing knowledge and protect wealth. Skills learned at the academy are unavailable elsewhere and are taught in a unique, logical way.”

“The course and instructor were superb and I highly recommend the OTA to anyone who would like to take control of their financial future. Perhaps the most important factor in the likelihood of a student's long-term success is the ability to continue interaction with faculty and other students who have taken the courses through a wide variety of excellent platforms.”

“The entire staff at Online Trading Academy is friendly, outgoing and supportive. The knowledge displayed by the instructors is incredible. There doesn't seem to be any question they can't answer. My confidence and knowledge continue to increase.”

“Without question the OTA staff and program has given me the skill, confidence and knowledge to manage my investments.”

“These classes are truly important and valuable for anybody who wants to be master of his financial future. Instead of giving money to financial advisers and fat banks, register to the classes and start making money. The knowledge you acquire is invaluable.”

“OTA provides the science, tools, skills and discipline that even advanced traders can benefit from. I enjoyed the session and hope to benefit from it soon.”

“I am truly amazed at the techniques and patterns I have learned from my classes. My original notion of trading went out the window as soon as I finished the Market Timing Class. And after my first two classes I am a different person with a different mindset. I am very excited to start and looking forward to a very profitable future and a new career.”

“After years of trading I had developed my own style of investing that exposed me to tremendous risk by not knowing where to get out of a stock. Now I have a plan to tackle these issues.”

“Before taking on OTA, I was a little skeptical due to the lack of reviews or social media reviews on the courses. AFTER TAKING the market timing seminar and Pro Trader, I can sincerely say that this was one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. The instructors, support managers, and education counselors are great! Material is very well explained and very well presented.”

“Learning from the OTA instructors is a very short way to success.”

“At first OTA seems very expensive, but it is well worth the monetary expense for anyone who is looking to increase their financial knowledge. If you sign up for the classes, which I recommend you do, and are willing to listen to the instructor, and implement what they teach you in the curriculum, you should have financial success with your investing portfolio. I wish I knew what they teach you at OTA at twenty, rather than sixty. If I had, I would be much wealthier today.”

“OTA has provided me an avenue to evaluate on an alternate career = trading. They have excellent instructors who come with practical experience and really care for their students to be successful.”


“Great support staff.”

“The OTA is the best school to learn about trading. What differentiates them is their scientific approach and consistent emphasis to follow the rules and be disciplined. They also have some of the great traders as instructors who speak and teach from their real-life experience and not just academics.”

“The Best thing about NJ is its Staff. They are awesome!! OTA is the Best Investment I ever made, this is for life.”

“I was a little skeptical on the course before starting, but going through the process that you have created and fine-tuned, and then putting it into practice, makes me feel for the first time that someone is looking out for me financially. Because at the end of the day we are the ones responsible for our actions, but we don't have the correct tools to make decisions so we listen to salesmen, media or friends on what to do. We have to get our own education and I know this is it!”

“Online Trading Academy is a great course. The instructors are great. They care and want you to learn. I would recommend this course to anyone.”

“My daughter and I have enjoyed our courses at the Secaucus, NJ location. The instructors were always professional. The staff is well organized and accommodating. I believe that this is a worthwhile way to learn to trade.”

“OTA has given me the foundation and confidence to begin trading. I never realized how much I needed to know to be successful, and I have enjoyed the different professional instructor's stories and viewpoints on trading.”

“I have traded before, but only to a small degree. I feel I understand the stock market much better now and could probably place a trade in real time. The lifetime retake is a great resource, of which there are many. The instructors are knowledgeable, friendly, outgoing, professional and committed to your learning.”

“Truly satisfied with the initial and ongoing education and support offered by Online Trading Academy. The doors have finally opened to a long desired education in proper trading methods.”

“After spending years of self studying and jumping from place to other looking for the right education, I finally got the best opportunity to educate myself and have the confidence that it will carry with me to trade as a Pro Trader.”

“As a brand new trader, Online Trading Academy has helped me from scratch to become a conversant trader that can now make money with good consistency on a daily basis - thank you, Online Trading Academy, for helping me.”

“The classes are great and everyone here is very helpful. Will work if you are disciplined.”

“The program provides solid background for intelligent approach to trading. The courses are specific and well organized presenting real and strong base for future steps in trading. My thanks to the staff.”

“As a current college student, I can honestly say that this is the best and most usable education I have ever received. I do not regret a single penny that I spent on an education at the Online Trading Academy. When you join Online Trading Academy you are not just paying for a class, you become part of a community, a community with experienced instructors that want you to succeed and are ready and willing to help you. This has undoubtedly increased my knowledge of the markets and, to anyone trading in the markets without an education, do yourself a favor, spend the money you are going to lose on an education here to prevent worse losses.”

“Ever since I acted upon an email from Online Trading Academy on a cold December 2013 Saturday morning, I have not looked back. As a brand new trader, I leveraged Online Trading Academy's class retakes and now trade ~60% of the time daily profitably with small losses at times. Thank You, Online Trading Academy for this opportunity.”

“For people who would like to know stocks, online trading is the first step to take.”

“The folks at the Online Trading Academy are genuine and have something good going. Their education for income supplementation is top of the line. I will come back here again and again. Chris, Serge, Kevin, Angela are cool people.”

“If you are serious about trading and want a positive foundation for trading, Online Trading Academy is a must have.”

“As I write this review I am sitting in the last day of the Market Training class. Michael Young is the instructor for this class and he has been absolutely amazing. I've learned so much from him and Tom these past three days. Definitely an eye opener. My education counselor, Trevor, has been really great also. No pressure from him to sign up for more classes, but always there to answer all of my questions. Great counselor. I've had such a great experience with this staff in Secaucus. For my own personal reasons I cannot sign up for their next class right now but will as soon as possible. I would encourage anyone who can to please do it. I definitely reccomend this school and this staff.”

“The instructor and supporting staff really made me feel that they were extremely interested in my success. I have become more and more comfortable at the school knowing that the staff's interest was in assuring my success.”

“Online Trading Academy is the best trading school for novice traders because it allows me to do hands on live trading and even to feel the situation of doing trading.”

“You will not be disappointed in taking the courses provided. You will receive the hands-on experience required to begin a career as a day trader. The course will focus on the techniques, strategies, positives and negatives of what to expect as a trader.”

“The Trading Academy course was truly an eye opening and worthwhile experience! Even though I have several years of trading experience, I still learned a whole lot more by taking this class. Additionally, I met several other students and we were able to share information that was helpful in my trading experience. Students were willing to help out whenever it was necessary. ”

“My name is Marc Goldstein and I was not comfortable in trading on my own. The education I received in this class has given me more confidence and knowledge for the future as a trader. I feel the instructors and school really care and want me to succeed. Thank you very much.”

“I love it, was a great experience. Gives confidence in trading, easy to make a living out of it.”

“When I first came to Online Trading Academy, I was completely new and knew nothing about trading at all. After one short week, I gained the ability to read charts and can recognize good trades to take (which worked out on the simulator, at least). Online Trading Academy also taught me how to be patient to find profitable trades, how to improve emotional control and also to properly use stops and protect profits, and many things about the mentality of what it takes to keep improving to eventually become a professional trader. The experience of the instructors here is an accumulation of lifetimes of professional experience and, as a professional poker player, I know the value of that; I only chose to start trading due to these courses.”

“Online Trading Academy has an extremely accessible approach that could work for anyone, and the staff and instructors are knowledgeable and patient to help everyone learn the material and build the confidence to trade on their own. I am not totally self-sufficient yet, but can see the path to being a successful trader and cannot wait to send and share my success emails with Online Trading Academy!”

“Trading Academy has the very best qualify instructors.”

“This is my second time taking the class, and while learning so much new material is a bit intimidating, everyone at the center is so helpful. Along with Matt, I would like to acknowledge what a terrific support system Serge has been.”


“The whole experience was great. Instructors excellent! Help available as you need it, questions are always addressed and answered. The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. I look forward to coming back to enhance my learning.”

“What an eye opening week for this novice/turning into a trader! It is comforting to know the folks at Online Trading Academy want and need you to succeed. Every staff member was there and very accessible during the entire duration of the sessions. I highly recommend Online Trading Academy and this very important investment in yourself. I look forward to a more profitable and secure future because of Online Trading Academy. Thanking you now and in advance.”

“It really, really helped me to learn, and make decisions on type of market I want. Committed to a long journey of learning, very satisfied in my first week of class, thanks a lot.”

“Never a dull moment. Lots of information I didn't know about already and brushed up on my trading skills. Dan made it easy. He is the best.”

“I found the content and curriculum to be exquisite. As a long time trader, it helped to close the gap between my floor trading and electronic trading experiences. Anyone that has the discipline to use the techniques taught here will be able to consistently take profits from the market.”

“I thought all the instructors and staff I met at the Online Trading Academy were great. I wish I had become aware of the Academy's existence some 10 years earlier.”

“Opportunity to retake class as many times as needed is great. Each instructor provides new ways to look at the info based on their personal trading preferences, and that gives me more ways to look at my trading likes and dislikes.”

“If you are suffering losses from options trading or are eagerly looking for a helpful class to change you, please come to Online Trading Academy Secaucus campus to take the options class, you will get absolutely more than you have expected! Furthermore, you will be then able to help yourself to manage your own funds to build up your happy future!”

“The staff are very friendly and supportive, the lunches were great. The atmosphere is very comfortable.”

“I understand now that Online Trading Academy is a community whose members are concurrently learners and professionals. Online Trading Academy is not just a resource for novices, but a college that actively and carefully moves its members to ever higher levels of understanding and success.”
