“The Instructor was great, learned a lot and hope my wife can join me for class sometime in the future”

Irvine, CA Core Strategy Class

“I would like to mention that Corey's testimony of not being a great student and how he followed his passion and applied himself was very encouraging to me, as I have a similar background, and at the beginning of classes, it gave me the spark of hope to be able to be a successful trader. Also: Leon's story was instrumental to both me and my wife ,in making the decision to sign up when we first came to OTA! Thank You Paul Morel”

“The online trading academy is a great institution that taught me how to manage a personal trading plan and how to distinguish novice habits from the successful ones. I have only been trading for half a year and i have learned a lot during my first orientation. I am excited to see everything else they can offer to enhance my trading skills and the experience with the market - John A”

Charlotte, NC Personal Trading Plan

“To those who have come across OTA: while the name may suggest that this is an "online" program, you have access to a large number of in-person locations and you will not be able to find an organization that can provide as accurate and well structured of a program as these people. You gain access to online and in person resources such trading coaches and a customer support team that will make your learning process a breeze. I had done my fair bit of research before joining (3 months to be exact) and I can confidently say that no other place will offer you the same as what OTA does! I am extremely happy with my decision to join the academy!”

Vancouver, Canada Core Strategy Class

“OTA strikes me as a very unique community. It is surprising to hear time and again that they want you to stay in touch - everyone seems to offer support. This is not a hit-and-run classroom experience, but a long-term relationship. OTA has a solid track record and a supportive culture that ensures anyone who is serious about trading can find the needed support. - Steffen”

“This class helped tie a lot of the information together. A business plan is a must have in any new endeavor so the Personal Trading Plan makes perfect sense.”

My wife and I are both doing the program and are loving the experience. I will recommend it to everyone who wants a better life and can benefit from the challenging experience. Thanks OTA. ”

“Its too early for this. I need to go watch a whole bunch of videos from Russ Allen, and even repeat this class somehow. I also need to flow some test transactions through a Simulated environment in order to get more confident.”

“I retook this class to refresh my knowledge and I was greatly surprised because it taught me many things I never Knew, I had so much fun learning.”

New Jersey - Central Core Strategy Class

“I always refrained from getting involved in the market, as I thought it was overwhelming and dangerous. Based on the last seven days of classes showing me the technics , I am now willing to engage in the market. I can see it much simpler now and not be intimidated, but benefit from the technics that I have learned. The details of how to spot a good trade will be indeed beneficial for me as I will take action to enjoy the results. Thanks DAN and OAT !!”

“Jeff Manson was a very passionate instructor. Offered great clarity and in depth understanding of the concepts. Assuring all students thoroughly understood the material as well.”

Chicago, IL Futures

“Finding OTA was the change I was looking for in my life. I found my reason WHY here at the academy. I now have the skill set necessary to be a successful trader. I also have a skill I can use for the rest of my life. More importantly I am now apart of the OTA family. If there are any issues that arise in the future I can return to OTA and get the help or advice that I need. No more conference calls where nothing gets accomplished, no more employees whining and complaining about work. No more headaches and sleepless nights worrying about what is going to happen at work. Now I WORK FOR MYSELF! Instead of working to make money, I make my money work for me! If the sky is the limit then OTA is the vehicle to take you into space! BLAST OFF!!! ”
