San Jose, CA - About Us

Trading is a hands-on activity. Despite what you might have been told, you cannot learn to trade in a theoretical environment. You would not read a book on piloting and then attempt to fly a plane. This is what sets Online Trading Academy apart. We’re here for you at every step of your trading and investing education.

You’ll attend class in our state-of-the-art financial education center… not in a hotel ballroom. Class sizes are small to ensure maximum personal attention for each student. Our foundation course, Core Strategy, is the optimal blend of classroom learning sessions and application sessions, where you’ll utilize the skills you’ve learned to make live trades in the market using real money, our money, as you practice trading at a professional terminal with an experienced trader available to advise you every step of the way.

We offer classes focused on Stocks, Foreign Exchange (also known as Forex or FX), Options, Futures/Commodities, Real Estate and Wealth Management. All on-location courses come with Retakes so if you don’t fully understand a concept... simply come back at any time and take a refresher course. We also offer an online continuing education program called the Extended Learning Track (XLT) which enables you to continue your trading or investing education from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Package pricing is available and you can qualify for tuition reimbursements that can pay 100% of the price of your education!

You can get started for FREE with our half-day class. You’ll learn about the foundational skills and tools we call the “7 Pillars of Effective Trading” and you will walk away with a better understanding of what it takes to achieve your financial targets. We look forward to seeing you soon!
