star half star star star


“For a novice like me, this program was very detailed and had a step-by-step approach to entering the complicated field of day-trading. I’m extremely satisfied with the course.”


“The courses and instructors are top notch, but the most significant differentiation between this program and most other wealth generation techniques is the continuing education combined with never ending support with no expiration date. No judgementalism ever; just good advice and a very friendly attitude-- and that goes for EVERYONE in the King of Prussia location.”

“This is a program that can really open your eyes and mind to the true world of trading, especially when you are new to trading or you have been in other programs and lost money and time.”

“Best education ever and I feel much more confident about my retirement.”

“All staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable.”

“This is a comprehensive, well-thought out program; I feel that my knowledge has increased a substantial amount.”

“If you really want to learn how to make money trading stocks (etc.), these people are truly devoted to doing that with great dedication.”

“The amount of information available to improve your trading learning curve is fantastic. If you put the effort in to learn, the resources are available.”

“OTA provides a wealth of knowledge about the markets and trading. Their unique approach and strategy allows any dedicated student to succeed in their financial endeavors. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The facilities are comfortable and well-suited to an enjoyable learning experience.”

“OTA continually improves the trading education experience. The staff are extremely supportive, and the education leader is very hands-on to provide an excellent individual learning environment.”

“There's no other program or class where the average person can learn and experience actual trading in the stock market. Last year my wife asked me to retire, after my forty plus years in medicine. I told her that I had to do something with my time and told her that I wanted to trade the stock market. She gave me that look, ‘You’re going to do what with our retirement money?' I told her trading was like medicine-- anesthesia, my medical specialty. I didn't just get behind an operating table, start pushing drugs and call myself an anesthetist. I went to class, learned what to do, practiced until I got confidence and only then started doing what I learned on patients. OTA teaches you the basics. With the instructors’ experience and guidance, practice on trading computers, and gaining confidence, I know that I can trade and make money. After showing my wife what I was experiencing... she came to me saying, 'I thought you were gambling with our retirement money...I no longer think that way.' She has since then given me control of our 401K to invest in our retirement. Co-workers have come to me saying that they found out I traded stocks. They informed me that they traded Options. I asked them how it was going? They informed me that they've lost 40% of their account. I asked, 'Where did you get your training? Free courses online, they said. I tell them that they need to invest in OTA and change their losing trading history. Tim Blotzer says he is committed to teaching and changing lives. "He is changing lives." I have saved lives in medicine. Tim is changing lives, in trading. Which one is most important? My choice in OTA is as important as my decision to go into anesthesia. OTA and Tim Blotzer have changed my life for the better and for the future. Thanks…”

“The OTA program will give you the tools and discipline to trade in various markets with a disciplined approach winning every trade.”

“OTA is staffed with fantastic people - their support is awesome!”

“I highly recommend this course and the Online Trading Academy system of education and support to anyone who is truly interested in creating a successful business model in the financial market space. The training provided removes the gambling, high risk approach and replaces it with proven strategies that control risk while providing opportunities to profit over time. If you're serious about taking the road less traveled and want to approach personal investing from the same mindset and training as the pros on wall street, I highly recommend that you take a hard look at this program.”

“Being new to trading and investing and knowing very little to nothing about it, I was very intrigued from my first session to my very last. You learn from very knowledgeable individuals who want you to understand immediately that trading is not just something you can do overnight, but with time, patience and practice, it could be a very good business to be a part of. Everyone in the center was friendly and open to address any questions and concerns we may have had. You truly don't feel alone on your journey. I've learned so much within the 7 days of the core program that I am excited to move forward.”

“Our instructor Craig really did a great job! The support from everyone at the King of Prussia center was amazing. An extremely positive attitude is shared by all.”

“I truly feel the confidence level finishing the course is outstanding. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to trade in the markets. Everyone here is very supportive and behind your success 100%. The course is very demanding but you get out of it what you put into it. I plan to be here for a long time life investment. Thank you, OTA.”

“Each session I have attended at OTA has had more impressive instructors. The quality of the educators has been excellent. I've learned so much so quickly. Looking forward to continuing my education and experiencing life-long income and wealth.”

“This is a whole new world for me. At times I felt overwhelmed but the staff was more than ready to help out. I feel like I'm definitely at the right place to make this work.”

“OTA is the only way to learn how to successfully trade. All asset classes are fully covered and is an amazing system. The resources are top notch: course materials, trainers, center staff, corporate staff, videos and live training sessions are all of the highest quality.”

“I have learned so much from my OTA classes and have found that retaking some of the classes to confirm that I have correctly understood the material being taught has been invaluable.”

“My OTA experience has completely changed the way I have previously approached my Investment opportunities! I no longer feel as though I am throwing darts at a wall hoping they stick. I truly feel that I now have a much more clear understanding of the market, and the reasons for prices moving both higher and lower. I am extremely excited to iron out my trading plan, engrave it into my mind, and begin applying this new knowledge in my investment accounts! Everyone at OTA Philly has been exceptionally supportive and encouraging and I'm excited to continue my trading walk with them at my side.”

“Online Trading Academy is truly worth it. The class structure, lab experiences, and instructors are top-notch. They are patient and understand how to explain and dissect complex concepts and do it well. Questions and community are highly encouraged! If you come prepared to engage and aren't afraid to ask questions, you will be rewarded with a deep and thorough education at OTA! Highly recommended!”

“Very worthwhile learning experience; instructors and staff highly professional and helpful.”

“Though I thought the tuition was very high initially, the Core Strategy session has already taught me how I can protect and grow my assets far beyond the tuition payment. My passion to learn more about trading has increased dramatically and I am excited to begin applying the tools I've learned this week.”

“My experience with OTA was outstanding. The organized way the schedules are handled, the individual focus received from the counselors, and the expertise of the teachers exceeds anything I have ever experienced in this industry. ”

“I would 100% recommend Online Trading Academy to anyone I know who is serious about being in control or more aware of their financial future. Is it an investment? Yes, but the benefits/reward far exceed the initial investment/cost. The question you should ask yourself is not how much the course cost you, but how much it will cost your future self/family for not having the education.”

“The connectivity between the in class content, hands on practice in TradeStation and the at home quizzes really helped to tie all-together the large amount of information covered in the course. I am leaving Core Strategy with the confidence that I will be able to seamlessly transition into the post course world ready to continue with my progression.”

“I enjoyed the program very much. Everyone at the center was so nice and professional. I didn't know a thing about trading. But now I am ready.”


“The courses, and follow-up learning sessions, at OTA teach you how to be a better trader! A great bonus is the sincerity of the instructors and staff in wanting you to be successful. This helps with the mental aspects of learning how to trade.”

“Have taken all my classroom instruction at the KOP, Philly, Online Trading Academy. This OTA gets my highest recommendation for professional trading. Thanks”

“The information in the class was very comprehensive. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The entire staff at OTA Philadelphia was supportive, friendly and helpful.”

“I have not traded successfully yet. I do believe that with the resources that OTA provides, that the opportunity to be a successful trader will be within my reach. It now depends on me to apply what I have learned and increase knowledge and confidence. OTA is exactly the school I was hoping it would be.”

“We really had a very good experience in the 7 days we took a class here at the King of Prussia OTA. Our instructor, Craig Weil is excellent at getting his point across. He made it simple for first time learners like us to understand. By the end of the 7 days, we can actually construct and put a trade in place!! The staff here at the OTA King of Prussia are all so wonderful! We feel like we are part of a big family of traders. Sydney, Brian, Mario, Crissy, Sam and all the others on the team. We have so much to learn yet.”

“Great learning experience. OTA experience is loaded with information. The instructors are terrific and professional. All the personnel at OTA are approachable and wonderful to deal with. It's a great community to be a part of.”

“Having come in to this class with my wife, we were excited but nervous since we knew we would have a lot of questions and be starting from scratch with trading. After this week of Core Strategy, we still have a lot of questions but at least feel prepared to use MyOTA to help fill in the gaps and experiment with TradeStation. Jon Arginteanu was an excellent teacher and really helped my wife grasp basics (she was extremely nervous since her background is Elementary Education and she was very aware of all she didn't know). Thank you OTA for showing us a new path to investing and doing it on our own terms! We are very excited for our next steps!”

“The program covered everything I needed to start trading with confidence and provided me with a strong support system to keep me on target.”

“I was a bit nervous coming into the class, expecting that it would be overwhelmingly difficult. OTA proves that it does not have to be difficult. If you stick to the Rules, everything that you need to know is available on the charts. I'm thrilled to know that, for the rest of my life, I have online and in-person resources to truly master this material and change my life.”

“If you are serious about making significant improvements in your understanding of the financial markets and trading, there is no other training more comprehensive than OTA. They have the ability (skill and experience) to help you get to your goal faster than any other method offered by trading educators.”

“ OTA provides an incredible service. The instructors are truly masters of their craft and the staff as a whole is wonderful. Any questions are always addressed in high levels of detail and the information provided is invaluable to any persons seeking to get involved in the markets.”

“The instructor as well as the Online Trading Academy team was very helpful; and addressed all my trading questions. I feel part of a family where I can learn and grow for many more years to come. Thank you, Online trading Academy :)”

“Having been a trader for a short time before OTA, I realized that I have been making all the usual novice mistakes. This program has gotten me on the right path to make this my vocation. Very happy with the whole experience.”

“Top class operation. EVERYONE was friendly and helpful. You can tell they really want to help you!”

“I finally feel confident about trading. I was taking a lot of risks on my own and really didn't have a trading strategy before learning the techniques at OTA. Now I feel that I am fully equipped to make money in the market while limiting my risk.”

“I honestly LOVE EVERYTHING about how Online Trading Academy PATIENTLY focuses on ALL of the NECESSARY tools and INFORMATION that is Vital to Each individual's SUCCESS. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, but WE ARE ALL TREATED with respect and care throughout the entire process, which is EDUCATION to reduce our RISK of any or ALL NEGATIVE BEHAVIORS. I can't thank absolutely EVERYONE, including the students, for all of the help and UNITY; that is LIFE, LOVE, and PERSONAL SUCCESS. THANK YOU ALL.”

“I must say that attending this academy has been one of the best decisions of my life thus far. I have so much more to learn from this academy yet and am very eager to do so. Core Strategy, as well as the pre-class sessions were so great to be a part of and make you feel welcome and like a part of the family immediately. You guys are amazing.”

“OTA takes their education of traders seriously!! Lots of support and you can tell instructors really care that you understand and learn the material. Looking forward to applying what I learned. Thanks.”

“OTA is by far the most professional course I've taken. It will make the difference between me winning, in my trades, and me losing. This is my first of many courses to be taken and I have already recommended this program/course to my friends. Staff, well trained and experienced. Very professional and 'PATIENT'. Thank you!”

“One benefit to joining the OTA family is rubbing elbows with students that have the same goals and expectations you do. ”

“All instructors were very helpful and organized. each answered questions without hesitation to help us to progress forward and not lose all our monies.”

“I love my Plan B. You guys are my Plan B. You are highly organized and I feel you will do anything within your power to make this a great learning facility. In the past I felt that while the program may have been good, once you were done, you were done, but not with Online Trading. I feel so much support here and am very happy!”

“I am very impressed with how classes are set up, the learning process and support is truly amazing and you won't get the same from any education institution around the world. OTA prepares you and guides you throughout the whole process. ”

“My personal goal is to become a professional trader for income and wealth. I am making a career change to this field and feel confident with the basics I have learned thus far; along with the additional support, I will be successful. I was skeptical at first when I heard about this occupation, but the professionalism, expertness and support has truly changed my perception. I look forward to a long career (lifetime) with OTA.”

“I recommend any of the courses offered, the instructors are professional and top notch!”

“OTA is exactly what I was hoping it would be, and it is exactly not what my extremely skeptical mind had me anticipating it to be. It is a true "bricks and mortar" operation with all the breadth it needs, and they have not forgotten anything a student of investing or speculating needs in order to be successful.”

“Initially, I delayed into jumping right in, practicing and getting to know the platform and process. I would HIGHLY suggest to EVERYONE that if you have 1 hour of something that you can eliminate out of your schedule each day, for at least 5 days, DO IT! Do not delay your success, your success will be delayed... Listen to your instructors. Follow the process and GET STARTED! HAPPY TRADING!”

“One of the best learning experiences I have encountered. Great materials, approach to teaching and reinforcement with practice. We have an excellent instructor supporting us as we learn, who was able to answer our questions with their experience and examples.”


“This program is extremely engaging and makes you want to actively pursue your financial goals.”

“I came to the 3 day class not knowing anything about the stock market and managing money. I signed up for the class and got very nervous about my ability to learn something new at my age. The staff at OTA have been very supportive, and willing to work with me on an individual basis. I am so happy having signed up for the training. Thank you OTA, you all have changed my stars.”

“I can say that Online Trading Academy is not only a place to learn but a family that is there to welcome anyone that has interest in trading, to show him or her the right way to do it. I love their way of teaching and making students to be part of the family.”

“The class was a constant learning experience. I think this class is beneficial for anyone that wants to help their financial situation. ”

“OTA is definitely an advanced education for the person that wants to increase their knowledge and depth of investing in a very professional atmosphere.”

“The instruction was a beginners' guide to setting up trades and making them low risk to high reward. The instructor was a seasoned veteran with great insight into how to succeed in the investment world. The team providing support was very helpful. Entered the program with great hope of learning how to protect and grow my financial assets. I am prepared to begin my own financial odyssey with a community behind me to help when I need it. A lifetime's worth of financial information lies ahead.”

“This program for someone like me has really taught me a lot of things I didn't know. I am brand new to the world of trading and I feel I am on the right path to success after taking this class. Scott Chrisan is a very good teacher in the sense of keeping it simple, being very direct and down to earth. Sydney Ralston is great as well. She is with you every step of the way and helps get a lot of questions answered. ”

“I am looking forward to a long career day trading multiple assets. I have a few more classes with OTA. So far the classes have been wonderful and enlightening. I would recommend OTA to all new traders as my experience with other instruction, formal and self paced, OTA is head and shoulders above the rest. Dante”

“The class was fun and informative. Gave me a better understanding of the way the market works and how to find low risk trades. Everybody at the center is always willing to help and answer questions. And you cannot go hungry, lunch is great with plenty of health snacks all day.”

“I found myself struggling to learn the OANDA platform on my own. Thanks to OTA's amazing teacher Keith Gibson, I finally have the confidence to open a "live" account and begin my new adventure as a professional trader! OTA in King of Prussia, is simply the best! You'll always be welcomed and encouraged every step of the way. The teachers and staff really care about you and want you to succeed!”

“very organized center, helpful attendants and instructors including Sydney, Mario, Sam, and the rest of the gang. Easy to access area, excellent material and computer stations, friendly environment, and lets not forget the free world class food they feed ya!”

“The OTA office, King of Prussia where I attended my class, was first class. The personnel were friendly and on a first name personal level of interaction with each of us. They were always available and asking if we were okay, needed anything: help, questions, special accommodations, rescheduling, retakes.”

“Online Trading Academy never ceases to amaze me! Every time I spend time in one of the classes I am reminded that I made the right decision to invest in my education before I invest in the market. A tutorial on how to use a trading platform was perfect for me! And I was amazed that even the more experienced students in the class were very impressed. I loved this class and remain very confident in my educational investment. Love the Center! Love the people! Love the food! Love the atmosphere! Don't change a thing!”

“The staff at OTA truly cares about each student's progress. They take the time to fully explain the platform and answer all of our questions with courtesy and professionalism. Easy parking, very clean, everyone is professional and friendly. Easy to get to from 202 or PA Turnpike or 422. Plenty of snacks and refreshments available in center. Classrooms are set up well - easy to hear and see what is going on.”

“Great family atmosphere at the Center. Convenient location, ample parking, and great lunches and snacks every day adds to the fun factor of attending class at the Center.”

“The center was nothing short of what I expected. Our instructor, Scott McCormick is extremely knowledgeable and presented a whole lot of material in a very adept manner. The center was clean and well equipped. Staff was extremely helpful and food wasn't bad either.”

“OTA is the best trading school! for the risk-reward emphasis in the trade setup. The education here makes up for all the stupid losses I made in the past.”

“The OTA trading techniques are absolutely remarkable. I can now trade with more confidence in every trade. The course instruction and materials are very easy to understand, and best of all I don't need to learn every little thing about a company or wait for quarterly reports to make my trades.”

“Online Trading Academy gives you a perspective on the market like no other. The instructors are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend looking into their classes.”

“The entire OTA Philly staff is tremendously professional, helpful, and friendly. Thanks to Bruce, Sydney, Kristy and, of course, this week's most excellent Pro Futures Trader Instructor - Don Dawson. It's been another fantastic learning experience at OTA Philly. Greatly appreciated. Well done!”

“It was a wonderful and fulfilling experience. You couldn't possibly get it better than this. No scam here. All facts and encouragement. Everything is beautiful with a lot of comfort built into the facility. Parking space is more than adequate, bathrooms exceptionally clean. Very friendly and amenable personnel. I felt very comfortable and relaxed within the facility all through the period of training.”

“The staff is not only professional, but knowledgeable and can answer, and will take the time to answer any and all questions. The instructors are extremely willing to make sure you understand the topic and will spend time outside of class to help you.”

“For anyone truly willing to dedicate serious time to learning from experienced professionals, and then applying the acquired knowledge on a precise rules limiting basis, the Online Trading Academy experience can lead to a whole new level of income.”

“This particular class: Pro Trader, Part 1, has been excellent and only affirms my interest and desire to continue with OTA and with my career as a trader. I credit Jon Arginteanu for his great skill and ability to communicate information effectively. I feel like it's a great privilege to learn from his years of experience and knowledge. All faculty and staff at OTA have been highly professional, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I have studied with Darek Zelek, Ryan Watkins, and Jon Arginteanu and all three have been skilled, successful traders and excellent at communicating the information. Also approachable and willing to answer questions.”


“Online Trading Academy is truly committed to helping a person achieve their financial goals. The staff will invest a great deal of time working with each student to ensure that they are successful at being great traders.”

“Everything about the Philly OTA is top notch. The staff here is amazing as they'll go out of their way to make sure your experience is awesome. I'm happy to be a part of this financial family!”

“OTA has taught me so much. When I first started my classes I heard someone say "You never look at money the same again." This is so true! I have a much greater awareness of global economies and correlations. It is all very fascinating to me. The OTA center I take my classes in is always clean and neat and the staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating.”

“This was an extremely enjoyable experience. I was impressed by the effort made by OTA to accommodate its students; whether it was the amount of attention given by the instructor or the learning tools provided. The class atmosphere is somewhat informal and relaxed, diminishing any existing anxiety regarding the student's experience regarding trading. This, along with the amount of sincere support and guidance provided by OTA's entire staff made me feel that I had not wasted my time. Overall, a valuable and necessary experience for those serious about becoming an online trader.”

“Online Trading Academy is a one of a kind experience. So much fun stuff to learn. The people you meet are extraordinary. Learning to trade the correct way is very interesting.”

“I've always wanted to get into the stock market, and I think I have made the best decision in using Trading Academy to get me started. Sam is truly an excellent instructor and I think that having him during the 3-day orientation helped me in making the decision to start my trading career. I hope that the other instructors are at least half as good as he is.”

“After years of trial and error, the Online Trading Academy taught me a process by which I could become a successful trader.”

“The Staff at OTA at King of Prussia are TOP NOTCH. They are very upfront on what they expect from you if you decide to sign up. They DEF are invested in making you a successful trader and SHOW it. The professors are all top notch traders with proof to show. Can't stress enough how great the staff is here. Working with the staff is a pleasure!”

“Everyone at OTA that I have dealt with was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Although I have only completed the first part of my training, I have learned a lot. I am excited and looking forward to the rest of my scheduled training so that I can start applying it to become a professional trader. Thank you OTA!”

“This program I gave my all to, and the program gave me their all. I am lost for words and forever grateful. The whole OTA team is amazing, friendly and other worldly, thank you.”

“This was my first retake of the Forex course and I feel like I have developed a deeper sense of how to take more profitable trades using the core strategy. ”

“I was completely lost in the market until Online Trading Academy educators, counselors, and administrators were nice enough to take me in as one of their students. I am on my way to learning much more about the stock market than I ever thought possible from the classes I have taken and am scheduled to take. By doing so, my passion and enthusiasm has grown and I am eager and motivated to take my learning and apply it day by day and week by week as you teach me the ways to trade the market. Thank you, my OTA Family!”

“Online Trading Academy provided a great way of preparing me for a career change. What other method of study could give me a quick way of starting a new profession at a very reasonable cost. ”

“Best education in the industry; unbiased and objective, truly interested in your investment success.”

“This is my second class. The instructors for both classes provided expert instruction with real world examples. They also, which is very important, stressed the risk involved with trading. We entered good and bad trades which lets you know that trading can be profitable but you can also lose money. If you develop and follow a plan and stick to it, you plan for small losses and large wins. This is not an easy get rich program, it is a program that will teach you a skill and strategy to invest in the stock market and become successful. Time invested equals skill set development.”

“OTA IS the best financial decision that I have made in my life. It provides REAL education. I feel 100% more confident to handle my financial future. I no longer completely fear retirement (which occurs in twenty years). Now I have time to build the financial future for my family. Ed is a super instructor. He really explains in details and takes the time for each student if they need additional assistance. I would take his class again and suggest it to others.”


“An entirely new way of looking at something that is considered by so many as unknown, dangerous, a place where you only lose money. Finishing just the core strategy class gives you such a different perspective about trading overall, understanding of the way that the market works, and how with proper training, trading on the market is an absolutely phenomenal opportunity.”

“OTA taught me that I have control of my own financial future, but it's really going to take a lot of time, commitment & effort to develop the skill necessary to become a winning trader. OTA is giving me the tools to do that. ”

“I was trading stocks before I came to Online Trading Academy and thought I knew what I was doing. I was wrong. I had no idea how much leverage was allowed in the Futures and Forex markets, along with the tax benefits. Also, I was trading based on Quarterly and Annual news, along with company reports and although I was profitable I had no idea how to trade supply and demand. Online Trading Academy not only taught me how to trade in different ways, it opened up my mind to many other trading strategies and markets where I can invest my money.”

“I was approached by many people in the field trying to sell me tutorials and videos that they claimed were the best way to get into trading the market, after I tried some I was disappointed, none of them offered me the professional training and education that I received in the OTA. The quality of the instructors Is Superb and the use of the technical support and education planning is great. Mastermind and XLTs are also exceptional. Thanks OTA.”

“The facility is good and the staffs are excellent, a good learning experience.”

“OTA provides quality education in trading online. Everyone at the school seems to be interested in my success. The learning experience was superb. Try it and see for yourself.”

“OTA provides peoples of all backgrounds with the tools and knowledge to become successful traders.”

“This class has been very informative and has given me the confidence in believing that I can become a full time forex trader, achieving my goals of making this my new profession. I have enjoyed the entire week and am happy to be a part of this new community.”

“OTA really, really helps you learn. The amount of support OTA provides and offers is incredible. OTA does NOT just take your money and then forget about you---OTA really goes above and beyond to help you learn and make money. I truly wish I had joined OTA 10 years ago. I am blown away at breadth and depth of knowledge of the financial markets that Sam Evans has. ALL of the OTA instructors are extremely intelligent. No matter what the market, every single OTA instructor is brilliant. I am very, very happy to have taken this FUTURES course with Sam Evans. I really, really learned a lot and I can't wait to begin trading FUTURES. I would love to take another FOREX course with Sam Evans or Keith Gibson.”

“A very informative hands on learning experience, with knowledgeable personnel on site who are polite and friendly, and easy to relate with. Thanks much.”

“I have enjoyed the program and have seen it working. It is very effective.”

“This is my first course with OTA. I was very apprehensive in regards to signing up. I was not sure this was real and/or that it could help me in my trading. Having completed this first course, I now realize that I should have taken this course years ago! I see clearly how trading using the OTA techniques will enhance my trading and help me to improve as a trader. I look forward to increasing my learning through using the XLT and participating in both live and online courses. Thank you, and especially thanks to Scott M., my first instructor.”

“Everyone at the Philadelphia (KOP) facility is very accommodating and easily approachable. They all make you feel relaxed and at home. The instructors are top-notch and the facility is clean and modern. I couldn't have asked for a better learning environment or a better instructor than Ed Ponsi. His ability to transcend his real-world experience and knowledge to a classroom environment is very effective and I am confident that I will continue to progress...”

“Online Trading Academy is affording me the ability to be able to maintain my current life style at a time when I am leaving my current job. I don't have to deal with the rat race any longer.”

“To me, the opportunity to be a student at Online Trading Academy is a dream come true. Through a coworker in Liberia who had taken a Forex course in Singapore, I became acquainted with Online Trading Academy, not believing that I would have the opportunity to be a student myself. However, when time and that opportunity serendipitously presented itself, I seized it! ”

“OTA exceeded my expectations and I'm thrilled about it.”

“I have been in multiple different courses over the years and feel that OTA has, overall, been the best. OTA is a well-oiled machine. I really enjoyed my time spent at the facility, along with feeling that my educational trading has been enhanced. I am looking forward to attending more courses. Thank you for the experience!”

“This has exceeded my expectations. The environment was conducive to learning. The food was excellent and the people friendly. Amazing how everyone gets to know our names so quickly. The real benefit was Brandon. He not only covered the material but shared his personal tips and tricks with many examples to help fortify his points.”

“OTA Philly is an excellent learning environment. The facility is quiet and peaceful, no noise or confusion outside the classroom to distract you. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful. The owner, Bruce, is right there too, talking with the students and making sure everything is going smoothly. He is very active in assuring student satisfaction. The counselors get to know everyone; I would feel comfortable talking to any of them. Of course, Sydney coordinates all of it and she does a great job too!”


“If you have lost money trading -- stop immediately and come to OTA.”

“The class gave me the tools and techniques needed to become a successful trader. ”

“So much excellent information and the instructors are amazing. They are simply wonderful teachers who love, love, love trading. That really helped to give me the confidence I needed to continue to pursue trading.”

“This class was a true eye opener on what the market has to offer. Opportunities are endless, regardless of the market conditions. I now feel equipped and ready to go.”

“Before coming to OTA I was involved in another trading school, the experience and hands on education I got at OTA was BY FAR better than what I have ever received in the past. I highly recommend that if you want to take control of your financial future, enroll and embrace the education that you receive at OTA. It is second to none.”

“It certainly increased my skills and confidence in trading.”

“By learning OTA core strategy, even a novice trader can see opportunities in all markets to increase their probability of making a successful trade. OTA staff always friendly and helpful.”

“You never know what you are missing until you experience it. This truly expresses what you find out about trading when you attend Online Trading Academy's classes. The knowledge taught and the insight resulting goes farther than I could have imagined.”

“It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning how to trade, and in particular for a senior citizen.”

“If you want to be a serious trader, take classes at Online Trading Academy.”

“The teachers and staff at Phila. office were wonderful. I learned many profitable strategies to use when trading. I'm looking VERY forward to my futures class later this month.”

“I didn't know ANYTHING about trading before I started here. Now, I feel confident about trading! I've learned so much in a small period of time. This was truly worth the investment!”

“I am totally impressed with the professionalism of Online Trading Academy. It is one of the most professional organizations. They are committed to the success of the student. The fact that I can go online and review any of the archives and also get on live sessions is pretty impressive. The quality of the material and instructors knowledge is great. Wish I knew about you earlier instead of "figuring" this out myself. I could have paid for this course twenty times over with what I could have made (and not lost) using Online Trading Academy rules.”

“I enjoyed my class here, in Online Trading Academy Philly again! It was an honor to meet Sam. His approach on trading Futures was very clear for me and I had light bulbs going on all the time. I would say it was more a Light Show.”
