Seattle, WA - Student Testimonials

star half star star star


“I have traded the markets before and did not realize how much risk I was exposing myself to. This course has opened my eyes and taught me how to better manage my risk and set appropriate rewards for my positions.”

“OTA is an amazing program. As a person who is a bit younger than most of the others in the class, it was great to learn alongside and learn from my peers. It's made for pretty much all learning types, so whather you're a slow or fast learner, hands on or not, the instructor finds a way to help you understand and grow your knowledge. 11/10 Would recommend.”

“I learned about OTA from a family member who attended the courses and gave me a great recommendation. OTA didn't disappoint in any way. The teachers were extremely knowledgeable and are very patient. I highly recommend attending for any level of traders. I will be recommending to family and friends. They honestly care about your success and knowledge.”


“All the staff here are very professional and knowledgeable. I look forward to continuing my education with OTA.”

“The newly updated Core Strategy is a big improvement. If it has been a while since you have taken Core or if you are thinking of a class to take as a way to access CliK, I highly recommend taking the class. If you are new to OTA, you are going to get a great experience.”

“Enrolling in OTA was the best decision I have made in decades. I cannot say enough about the organization; the staff is AWESOME and the way the class was presented was incredible. I HIGHLY recommend Online Trading Academy; very impressive and well worth the investment.”

“No other education is even a close match to that of Online Trading Academy. The team that OTA has put together in Seattle is second to none-- top notch! When I began this journey, I had no idea the education I would receive would be from "top of the class" industry professionals that don't hold back to help me achieve. I am investing the time it takes to learn a valuable skill. Thank you to the entire OTA Seattle Team!”

“OTA is truly committed to complete training. They offer a wide variety of financial educational programs. They really care about us, the students, and always ask how we are doing (because we might be afraid to ask). It's a whole new skill set that everyone should have. If schools offered kids this education, there would be a lot less money problems in adulthood.”

“OTA has consistently shown how far above and beyond they go for their students. They truly have student success as their number one priority.”

“The Core Strategy course is the essential starting point in the journey at OTA. The staff is terrific and always looking after your needs; the instruction and courseware are first class. It is apparent that OTA is a learning company that is constantly working to improve its product. There is a fraternal aspect of OTA that helps us constantly improve our skills, through group activities and the opportunity to watch and see top traders in action. I am excited about this journey and find it very promising so far.”

“An instructor led course is by far the best way to learn this material. Practicing what we learned by actually real-time trading was the icing on the cake.”

“I took this class in spite of much advice that I not. I was told that the companies offering "how to trade in the markets" are not known for anything but providing information regarding the process of trading along with some general guidelines as to how to incorporate it into your income plan. OTA was much more than that. This experience is like learning to ride a racing bike with training wheels. One can see the potential, but the syllabus is so designed that you simply cannot go too fast. Everything about this experience is well done with the student in mind. Everyone affiliated with OTA is committed to the student's development of the necessary skill sets that will make them successful traders, regardless of their prior background.”

“Great program to start your trading career. Everyone truly cares about your success and is willing to help you any way they can.”

“I really enjoyed the Forex class, and the information I gained will allow me to proceed forward in my journey to change my direction in life for the better. However, the most important thing I have seen is the motivational support by the Seattle OTA staff and the honest concern they have for their students’ success. Finally, I would like to thank the three instructors, Eric Burleigh, Scot Stokes, and Nikki Sitze, whom I have had the pleasure to be in classes with. They shared personal life experiences and their journey with OTA and how it changed their lives, putting it on a level I can relate to.”

“The positive energy generated at the class by the staff and teacher is contagious. They truly care about the success of everyone and are very reachable after class. There is a lot to learn, but the program will work if you are dedicated to working hard.”

“The Seattle, WA branch will bend over backwards to make sure you are informed so you can stay on track. They are friendly and want to see us succeed.”

“As a corporate individual, I wish I would have known about OTA 20+ years ago. My plans are to start trading immediately for income and wealth. The training that OTA provides and the level of instruction can reach all audiences. In my opinion, everyone that has an interest in their financial future-- whether it is for extra income, protecting one’s wealth, or trading as a career-- should be educated in the markets, bonds etc. I live in the Bellevue area, so having the OTA office close to home is a blessing. I have taken 3 main course classes in 2 months and continue to educate myself with all of the offerings. I highly recommend OTA. The instructors are amazing.”

“The education provided by Online Trading Academy is truly top notch. Every class I have taken has not only provided me with the requisite knowledge, but also provided me with the insights to help me better understand what kind of trader I am and what I need to do to be a better trader.”

“OTA in 1 week made the thought of trading go from a humongous daunting endeavor into a bright positive journey.”

“Not understanding how to follow the flow of buyers and sellers in the stock market is something that I won't have to worry about after taking OTA. The education is a long-term hedge against market corrections. I plan on going into the next recession with my eyes wide open.”

“OTA Seattle is the perfect place to start your stock/Forex/future/options education. Instructors are the cream of the crop.”

“A fantastic experience. OTA provides its students with an in-depth education on the financial markets and provides a solid road map to achieving success within these markets. If you are seeking financial independence and want to join a great community of investors, then Online Trading Academy is for you.”

“Everyone, the receptionist to the instructors, at OTA are very knowledgeable, professional, supportive and friendly. I would recommend this organization to anyone at all who is the least bit interested in improving their financial wellbeing.”

“The learning process is very interactive and flexible. It gives you room to stretch your mind and then practice it to actually make what was taught your own.”

“OTA is pivotal in teaching you how to keep your money while making money from the market.”

“The OTA classes opened up another world for us. We discovered that the OTA concept is so impressive, we want to let others know of its potential for their lives.”

“I've been trading FOREX for over 12 years and options for 2 years. I feel the strategy presented by OTA will significantly improve my trading results. The rules provide an easily repeatable process that takes the emotion out of determining where to trade and how to manage the trade. The OTA process focuses on price action in a very logical method and does not require the many different indicators that other strategies require.”

“I have no experience in trading, did very little research on it before the class and I feel I fully understand the strategy for placing profitable trades with good probability. All the staff is so helpful and patient and fun to be around, I wasn't nervous to ask any questions. I'm so grateful they provided lunch as I don't know the area very well. The instructor listened to my questions and repeated them back to make sure she understood what I was asking before she answered, and she NEVER got argumentative with any of the students when they put in their perspective. She kept everything factual rather than opinionated which I would prefer. All around great experience. Looking forward to a great and confident trading future.”

“I've always known that the market could be a great source of income, but wasn't sure where to start. After hearing OTA's add on the radio and attending the 3 hour free class, I knew at that point this is the education I needed. I am so glad I found this and wish I would have known about this 10 years ago.”

“I have investments with my husband, but had never executed a trade myself. I have never been in a short position because I didn't know how to manage it. The truth is I didn't know how to manage the long positions I have been in for 20 years. OTA has made me comfortable to actively manage all of these trades with clear strategy and provided the basis for more learning to come. ”

“Life changing. The conversations held with financial advisers after being at OTA have become more fairly balanced and technical. A huge edge is what OTA is, even for the assets you still need a middle man for.”

“We have been students of other trading programs, which were expensive and fast-paced. However, our appreciation of OTA has really been solidified this week in retaking Core Strategy and experiencing the level of care they have for us as students to have the patience and take the time to go over and over areas that we were not understanding, until we were able to grasp it and start successfully applying it to our trading steps.”

“This was an outstanding program to go through. If you are trying to improve your income and overall wealth, OTA is the foundation for that. If you love learning new things and how to create more income for yourself, please enroll. You can't afford not to come to this place and learn. The staff is very helpful and personable and will bend over backwards to help students succeed.”

“I would recommend OTA for anyone who is serious about their future and becoming financially smart. This core strategy class has brought an entirely new outlook for my future.”

“I want to thank OTA for their commitment. I had the best experience learning the market. Before attending the 3 day Orientation class, I never thought I would be able to understand charts. Eric, Cathie and our counselor, Crystal made this journey beautiful..... We can't wait to see our results and share them with everybody. We love you.”

“Nowhere have I seen with my own eyes of an organization/company that truly commits 110% to the teaching, learning, and support of their students than that Online Trading Academy has shown me.”

“OTA is one of the most interesting educational experiences I've had. It is mentally invigorating even when you are struggling to encompass everything that's being thrown at you.”

“I was amazed at the amount of information available to me as a student at the OTA. I will take what I learned & enhance my financial future. I wish I had known about stock trading & how it works many years ago...”

“Knowledge is power and this course is powerful. My only regret is not knowing this information 10 years ago. This is a great foundation to whatever your investment goals are.”

“Everyone is open, friendly and willing to help. Instructors are top notch and very knowledgeable. Outstanding student support and followup.”

“I have completed the Core and Futures classes and OTA has exceeded my expectations. All of my instructors have been extremely knowledgeable, engaging, explaining and reinforcing concepts in an easy to understand format, and are supportive of all students.”

“Very informative, I was quite surprised to find that I could find zones as quickly and accurately as I did. That is the "Key" to the entire platform and access to the whole trading program. Well worth the time and investment!”

“If you're afraid of getting into the financial markets and want to know more about how to trade and how to manage your retirement, OTA is the right place to go. As young children into adulthood, we don't learn how to manage our finances and retirement unless we learn from our parents or friends, etc.. Financial understanding of the markets and how to actively manage your retirement funds is a priceless resource. OTA provides the education to learn their patented core strategy methodology to get into the markets with education for life that gives you the tools to trade in various markets, learn from pros, and make a greater return on your retirement.”

“After investigating for the best "professional" trading education the past 3 years, I spent much time considering characteristics I was looking for. The 2 main reasons I invested into OTA for my education was the quality AND the relationship, which I feel they placed the most value on. How amazing to be part of the Online Trading Academy family!”

“I have trading experience as a floor trader on the NYSE. This class was an eye opener and I so enjoyed Scott, our instructor. His knowledge and experience was priceless. I recommend Online Trading Academy to anyone who wants to work from home and be their own boss. If you believe in yourself, you can make the needed strides to become an income earner! OTA is your first step no matter if you have experience or not! OTA will not only teach you but provide you with the necessary tools to become the winner you were meant to be! Go OTA!”

“This program may very well be the best investment I have ever made for myself. I have learned the basics to taking my financial future into my own hands and I'm going to make it happen. The experience of this class, from our amazing instructor Scot Stokes to an amazing set of peers has been absolutely priceless!!”

“Seattle OTA is an amazing campus and staff couldn't be better. I feel very lucky to have so many wonderful people encouraging me and cheering me on. Cheers.”


“So many "aha" moments! Core strategy was an amazing eye opener. It takes several days to begin to understand and likely years to master but it is so interesting and worth the time, you'll be so glad you're part of the program. I am very excited to begin putting what I have learned into practice over the coming weeks and months. I will never look at the markets the same and I will never trade the same way again either. Time to do it right!”

“Initially I was very excited about starting this new venture, then felt quite nervous about it being something so different than anything I'd known about previously. But upon leaving Core Strategy, I have an understanding and confidence about the opportunities ahead! Thank you for all your patience and time!”

“Attending my first class in Forex was a truly life changing experience. Learning a new life skill that used to be shrouded in mystery, then demystified, made me very thankful that I chose Online Trading Academy.”

“Every class I have had at OTA has exceeded my already high expectations. Thank you!”

“Overall a fantastic experience. I had no idea what to expect on Saturday morning, and I couldn't be happier with the way it all panned out. I came into this knowing literally nothing about the market, and I'm leaving feeling great about the future. I've got a long way to go, but I feel good knowing all the resources and learning tools available to me. Overall it was just a great week.”

“I am very impressed with the education I am receiving at OTA, and with the tools they provide! The support which is available for students ranges from classroom, recorded and live classes online, as well as local support groups for all the asset classes. You can't fail IF you put in the effort.”

“OTA is very informative, and the class with Don was very interesting and educational. Everyone in the class consumes as much as their brain will allow, the more you work is the more you get out of it. Don was very practical and never seemed to give us unreal expectations or try to sell us more.”

“OTA generally has brought rigor and discipline to my 15 years of trading experience. Greg Hadley, our instructor, and my previous two instructors all were very good even though they were very different.”

“Online Trading Academy has one of the finest courses for understanding the Stock Market I have ever seen. Their rules are simple, follow the rules and you have a "better than average" opportunity to make real money in the stock market. The instructors are actual users of the system. They have to have a proven track record of using the OTA system for two years before they can even be looked at as a possible instructor. What that means to me is they know their stuff... and after the 7 day course, I know for a fact they know what they are doing. Absolutely satisfied with OTA. 100% recommended.”

“You get to see what they teach working right in front of you.”

“This class provided a very structured plan for making disciplined trades. This type of structure was lacking from my previous experience and education.”

“From someone who has some trading experience, OTA has shown and proved to me that my basic trading experience can be greatly improved. The trading system is just learning the basics, applying the knowledge gained, and letting the trades come to you instead of chasing a position.”

“Online Trading Academy helped me understand: 1. How to use the tools required for trading 2. How to locate high probability trading opportunities 3. How to properly manage my risk, to protect my trading capital 4. How to trade specific markets, since every market operates a little differently. There's SO many resources out there that will give you just enough information to send you out to lose money trading the markets, but Online Trading Academy takes the time and gives you the resources to help train you properly, and at your own pace, so you can become knowledgeable, consistent, and profitable. It's WELL worth the investment for the training and resources they provide to help you get there.”

“Thank you OTA! You are definitely a resource that is priceless. The lessons learned are life changing. You are guiding me in my life unexpectedly.”

“OTA is a company of integrity that cares about people and wants to build relationships with those who truly want to become successful traders. Their training is top notch, their staff is beyond wonderful, and I feel like I am in a family, not just some person who gave them money then had to strike out on my own to try to turn a trading profit. I HIGHLY recommend them to ANYONE serious about changing their life. They have truly helped change mine.”

“For a complete newbie, this academy is the way to go. It details every step and the instructors are so very patient. The fact that I can retake this class whenever I need to is a real bonus. ”

“This is our second program, and we are so impressed with the quality of instruction and patience of the instructors!”

“The stock market has always been this scary entity that one seemed to need to be lucky to be successful with. Between the class, XLTs and HWPs, we now feel confident that we can take part in trading and take control of our financial future.”

“We've been pleasantly surprised with how the OTA training program has exceeded our expectations, providing both in-depth trading methods and ample opportunities to practice live trades with expert coaching assistance. We recommend this program to anyone who is serious about investing effort and capital with the intent to learn and practice market trading for sustained income and wealth building. Thank you!”

“I just completed the core strategy course and I couldn't be happier. What a great start to my financial and trading career. The staff is incredible and at the top of their game every step of the way. The instructors are the best in the business, and that alone is priceless to any novice or experienced trader. If anyone is interested in financial independence, this is the place to start.”

“Both the big picture and detailed trading strategies helped me understand the markets better, and helped me to face my emotions while trading. Understanding how to limit my losses and lower my risks while in trades, will help me to maximize my profits. The tools provided better knowledge and precision in managing trades than I have experienced before the class. The instructor(s) have real life trading experience and great advice on how to learn the markets.”

“I came into the Core class knowing nothing about trading. I came out, after only one week, with every tool I needed to be successful. The most important tool they provided me with is a full schedule of continued interactions with instructors and advanced students who would be walking with me as I continued to improve as a trader. The best part is that I have access to this support FOR LIFE!”

“Our futures instructor was very knowledgeable in trading the markets. OTA is definitely the place to go if you are looking for a leg up in the markets.”

“I am very impressed with OTA and all their staff. Everyone is so helpful and courteous and they truly made me feel they want me to be successful. I'm telling everyone I know that they should take the classes.”

“This program is amazing. At first I felt like this was another fly-by-night get rich quick scam program. After the 3-day class and seeing the beginning of the process and steps to completing trades. I started to get a handle on how these steps really work. Once in core strategy class, we started working the steps and started seeing how the market came to us. THE PLAN WORKED. I was so excited to see the price come back to where I had set my entry. Just like anything worth doing, you need to practice at it. This is not going to be a week long program and you'll be rich. If you put in the time, work the program, and follow the rules, the tools are all there for you to grow your wealth. Plus, this isn't a one time thanks for showing up class. OTA is for life. They give the tools to be successful the rest is up to you.”

“Online Trading Academy is incredible! The information that was explained was easy to understand and will help me both short term and long term in my trading career. I highly recommend this class to any person that would like to start trading.”

“Anyone who is interested in trading should definitely sign up with OTA. The experience has left us motivated, confident and capable of placing the trade!!”

“A must for anyone who wants to manage their own IRA. Definitely worth the time and expense!”

“The futures course and Jeff Manson completely opened my eyes to the larger picture of trading. How to use the different aspects of the market to predict movements and take calculated trades.”


“I appreciate that information is laid out so well in our classes. Also, there is always someone who can speak from vast knowledge and solid experience at the helm. What is exceptionally good is that we have a resource in the OTA website where so much is available to support the education process!”

“ With no knowledge or experience in trading, I have found Trading Academy to be an excellent education into the world of trading. They truly want you to succeed and are there are there every step of the way to help you do that from the excellent experienced instructors, to your counselor and support team. It is worth every dollar I have paid. Susan Clark”

“Online Trading Academy rewired my brain and improved the way I view and interpret financial markets. Being new to trading, I couldn't imagine trying to get started on my own without this education and the confidence that comes with it. - Kevin Steffanson”

“I am truly amazed what this organization can do - and am so thankful I took time out of one of my Saturdays to learn what OTA is all about. Now having gone through these classes, I am so proud to be part of this family!”

“Instructors and counselors were very supportive. Learning a new skillset with built in risk management techniques was priceless. Learning from actual experienced people built in credibility with the program.”

“This was a complicated topic explained carefully and meaningfully with helpful illustrations and examples. It will take me awhile to absorb and process all the information shared, but I appreciate the many proprietary ideas and strategies shared by the instructor. I have thoroughly noted materials presented and look forward to thinking them through without distraction, practicing until I have made them my own. and ultimately trading them myself. Pat Le Blanc”

“The leaning pace is fast, requires a lot of time and can be exhausting. However, I believe that the trading strategy will improve the number of my successful trades due to the mechanical and repetitive steps taken to make a trade. The course has taught me how to plan a trade, read a chart properly, reduce risk and increase the number of successful trades that I will make. Most importantly, trading is not a hobby. The OTA staff has been very supportive during my onsite classes.”

“For anyone wanting to regain control of their resources, time and life, I highly recommend OTA. Do you have to be willing to make a commitment to yourself and your future? Yes! But OTA supplies all the knowledge, resources, and especially support that will not only get you on that road to success but keep you there!”

“Incredible educational experience. while I am just beginning my forex career at a elementary school level, the information and knowledge I have been given this week is graduate school level. I was hoping/expecting to learn how to trade the forex markets, but I didn't expected to be so well set up for success. there has been so much information and strategies given I have been overwhelmed at times, but I am confident I can immediately begin trading effectively after taking David Warner's' class.”

“The live trading lab is very practical and tremendously helpful. ”

“Our amazing instructor was both knowledgeable and patient with well timed humor. The information seemed overwhelming with as much as you are receiving, but the training material was set up in a way that you could always retrace your steps when you got lost. I now find myself hungry for more challenging in-depth material and am very excited to get into the different asset classes and get to work! All the staff has been amazing and informative, and the educational content was very user friendly. LOADS of resources on just about anything you have a question about!”

“Lots of information was packed in the 7 days. The instructor was knowledgeable and experienced in the field of study. The instructor was ethical and appeared to care about the class comprehending the information. The whole campus staff appeared to care about students comprehending the information that was presented. ”

“This is an excellent program if you want to learn the real nuts and bolts of being successful in the financial markets. The teaching style really reinforces the core strategies and maximizes retention. I left the class excited to learn more and more on to the next steps. The instructor, Tom, clearly wanted all of the students to learn how to be better traders. Thank you, OTA!”

“My husband dragged me along with him, I knew absolutely nothing about trading the stock market or investing and had no interest in learning. After the 3 day orientation, I learned that I needed to get educated and take control of my investments. I signed up and took the core strategies course and am looking forward to my next classes. I am now hoping to do some day trading for income and take control of my investments for retirement.”

“I am very excited to have a business plan that is realistic in its capacity to meet my future goals. I have learned, and will continue to learn how to be a successful trader in the near future and years down the road. I have learned more from Online Trading Academy than I ever learned at Business School in college.”

“My wife and I enjoyed this class very much and learned a great deal about developing a routine for trading. You do a great job with running the center. The snacks provided are fantastic energy boosters, the office is great and well maintained. All questions we have get answered, and we feel that we can always get hold of someone when necessary.”

“Before signing up for a class with OTA, I did a bit of research into the academy. On discussion forums I mostly read negative comments and warnings of "it's a scam" or "do not waste your time". Ironically, the people who made these comments had never taken a class here. I am in the class now and I tell you this is NOT a scam. Not everyone is cutout to being a trader but, if you want to learn how, you should learn how to do it properly first. My instructor is a successful day trader. He taught me EXACTLY how he does it. Now it's up to me to go practice, practice, practice. Chris D Franz Newcastle, WA”

“I attended a 3 day class because my husband asked me to. I attended, not knowing anything about markets, stocks, or anything financial really - OTA has helped me to not only understand markets and finances better, but with what I have learned I have the confidence in my own abilities to be proactive with my own portfolio. The instructors are incredibly patient and knowledgeable. And with so much support available, the only true limitation to successful trading would be ourselves. I can't wait to keep learning more.”

“I'm telling everyone I know, 'if you want to learn to trade, this is where you go'!”

“Very happy with the class! Our instructor was experienced and patient which was great since everyone is on a different level of market experience and knowledge. Loved that they covered the market at a micro level to help us identify key spots to initiate trades and then from a macro to help us understand the principles behind what moves the market.”

“This is my second class at OTA, and once again I am very impressed with the presentation and support I have received. The support staff is, as always, extremely helpful, ensuring all my needs were met and questions answered. Way to go OTA - Bellevue.”

“Online Trading Academy classes are extremely encouraging and filled with a wealth of knowledge. I am glad that I am a Trader. The center is very accommodating, the personnel are extremely helpful, snacks and coffee were always there.”

“OTA provides you a program, training and mentoring to truly enable you to develop trading discipline and profit.”

“I never understood the world of Forex, quite frankly I never knew what forex was. Well after working with David our instructor, I see the light. I'm so excited for this chapter in my life, not to mention the great success that's coming my way. If you're on the fence about OTA, all I can say is, just try it! If you want "freedom" OTA is the way!”

“This program guides it's students, down a path to financial freedom; it will teach you how to work the financial markets that you have chosen. You just have to follow the DANG instructions!! The Learning Center is very easy to find in Bellevue. The grounds were very well kept, as well as easy parking. The Staff at the Center are professionals and take great care of you while you are there. A great job by all involved.”

“The program I just completed was complete and easy to comprehend with the instructor covering most topics more than once, some as many as three times. Everyone in OTA is so dedicated to making me a successful trader. The center is very organized and operated in an efficient matter with each class starting right on time and everything associated with the class being well organized. The chairs were really comfortable as well.”

“OTA is the only way to begin your journey into the world of trading. Whether you wish to trade professionally or part time, they provide you with the proper tools and strategies to grow and protect your money. An invaluable investment in your future. Thank you, OTA!”

“In the last six months since I have started OTA, I truly feel I have the confidence and the tools to trade the markets. I still have a lot to still learn but with the online training that is available I know I have the information at my finger tips.”

“I thought I had financial knowledge about trading and making decisions for my 401K. I was wrong! It appears as though I was a complete novice. When my husband Chris and I came to OTA, I found out just how much "I" really didn't know! Chris and I have acquired the knowledge and abilities to go online and actually accomplish our financial goals using the stock market. Thank you OTA.”


“In the beginning, in meeting the staff at Online Trading Academy, it became very apparent that these instructors and teachers are highly qualified and their experience in the marketplace is second to none. I am so pleased to become part of the OTA society; it is here I will plant my feet for many years to come.”

“I have been totally satisfied and impressed with OTA. This training is superb in every aspect. Foremost to me are all the instructors and staff. Everyone is indeed invested in my success and supportive in every way. OTA feels like graduate school for managing personal wealth. Finally, I can understand and get truly proud of the fact that through this OTA training and education I am becoming a "professional trader". I see the incredibly well crafted Core Strategy and the skilled instructors as the hallmarks of the best investment I have made in my education ever, in my life. The only thing comparable was Navy flight training (which the government paid for)... but it had to be superior or I would have killed myself landing a fighter jet aboard a ship at night. Thank you, OTA.”

“Online Trading Academy provides the course work I've desired for years; every course I've previously taken left me thinking it was not real trading, but rather something gimmicky. I'm not even finished with my course work and already I've recommended it. My impression is that everyone on OTA's team is very professional, wanting each and every student to succeed and meet their personal goals. My impression is that OTA is a class act, reflecting high standards combined with friendliness and warmth. The building is newer, easily accessible parking; the classroom setting is good...I believe everyone in my classes are happy to be a part of this training center.”

“I can now say that my understanding of the overall Market is greater than most friends I have that trade for a living! It's always difficult learning a new skill. It's harder learning a new language. I think both have been achieved in one week's worth of trial and error, compared to reading multiple books and still feeling confused. It's been a great experience and one I will look back on, appreciating the decision I made joining the OTA team. Thanks a TON!!”

“This is a wonderful center. The staff is always wonderful and do their very best to accommodate anything that anybody needs. The building and location is clean and modern. The fact that they feed the students all day is amazing. There is ample parking. There are no complaints. I would love to see a center open up in the north end, maybe in Bellingham.”

“My only regret is that I can't take it again next week with another teacher for additional perspective. So much great information and the class was done at an excellent pace. It's amazing how the core strategy seems to work over and over.”

“OTA has created order out of the chaos of the stock market. The Academy is invaluable to anyone interested in the "trade".”

“Online Trading Academic education was an extremely helpful and enlightening course. Very innovative, practical, inspirational and dynamic. Indeed, I really enjoyed David's teaching style and his instruction was a positive experience.”

“In my opinion, the class and the information is well worth the investment and will be used. Be sure this is what you really want if you are looking to become a professional trader. It is not a get rich quick proposition, thank goodness! Thanks OTA and Alex Perna.”

“Yes, I truly enjoyed the program, mixing with people of different trading ideas and exchanging ideas. Everyone is willing to help and be helped. Very good learning atmosphere.”

“This futures class was extremely valuable to me as a trader. The trading method we learned is extremely disciplined, insightful, and something I can put to use immediately in my trading plan. Don was a fantastic instructor and I would highly recommend him as an instructor to anyone that plans to trade Futures.”

“Campus is neat and professional as is all of the staff. The program is concise and should result in success, as far as I have taken this so far. The staff is professional and helpful. The attitude that they "want me to be successful" goes beyond the basic sales pitch and I feel encouraged to come back and stay in touch.”

“It was a great learning experience. There is a lot of information given. It's difficult to fully absorb the information in 1 week but there is an abundant resource system that allows you to review most every topic that was taught. I recommend you need to know your way around a computer. Try not to come into class thinking you know how the stock market works. Have an open mind. They will answer all your questions.”

“I can't imagine attempting to learn trading without attending the Online Trading Academy. I'm sure it can be done by some, but OTA provides the rocket fuel to get a new trading career off the ground successfully.”

“It is a great school. The teachers are excellent and well informed. I also enjoy being part of a trading community.”

“It is everything it was advertised to be. We can't wait to get home and get started using the skills that we learned. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They answered all our questions. They provide plenty of snacks to keep us going.”

“I would highly recommend his program. It gives you an opportunity to get started with confidence and a chance to grow.”

“The Pro Trader classes were excellent in providing how OTA's core strategy works and how to implement this strategy into one's trading. The lectures and real world trading done in class help to build your skills and confidence levels as a trader.”

“Every instructor and staff member has been top notch and professional Jerry weaver”

“The Pro Trader class was very informative. The instructor was well prepared, well organized and had real world experience that made the material very relevant for today's market conditions. I know "individual results may vary" but I feel that I have the tools to build on to be successful. The resources and support from OTA is very good. The wealth of material on the web site that is available is very impressive. ”

“OTA is an excellent program that clarifies the concept of using trading in the market as a means of financial gain through understanding how the market works and how to use that advantageously. The instructors and support staff are well informed, engaging, encouraging, friendly, helpful, and professional. Your success is their goal, during and after the program. I highly recommend this program.”

“This class definitely showed me that you can individually manage your own portfolio. Also it was proven that the techniques taught here really do work. It is "scientific" with facts behind the course study. It is definitely real and not "pie in the sky". These techniques are the same as those used by the traders for the banks and other financial institutions. Anyone who buys or sells stocks without knowledge of these techniques are simply "suckers" contributing their money to those who do have these skills.”

“I really enjoy this class. The fellow students were friendly and fun. The instructor was very friendly and knowledgeable of the subject taught.”

“Before I started OTA, I didn't like charts, I couldn't stand charts. I hated charts. I only took OTA to understand Jose and what he was talking about whenever he mentioned the stock market. Now I am so happy I took the course because it has opened my eyes to a whole other world!! Now I love charts. I am very excited to take advantage of all the support and classes OTA has to offer.”

“The training we receive here is essential for successfully managing your investments.”

“I am so happy that I decided to come to OTA. My experiences have all been positive since coming here. To see so many people my age having great successes in so many ways with their finances and future goals was heartwarming. I've seen nothing but hope and inspiration of a brighter future for us all. OTA cares about us and they make it known in every way. I appreciate that. Thanks OTA.”


“OTA is a financial program which I want to introduce to my children.”

“OTA is truly one of the best decisions I have made in my life. It has presented me opportunities and freedom to live my life in a totally different way. I believe by taking the courses I have taken in OTA I will be able to do this for the rest of my career if not make this my career. The course was very enjoyable to take with my Dad; we shared many good times and helped each other pick up on the lessons being taught. I would suggest this course to all of my friends and family who are looking to have a great time while learning how to make money.”

“I am continuously impressed with OTA: your ability to attract the best instructors, their professionalism and knowledge of the subjects especially. Also, the support staff is willing and eager to go above and beyond the call of duty. It is clear that you all have the student's success as your goal and it is greatly appreciated by all of us.”

“This course was packed with information. By the end of the week I think I was feeling overwhelmed and had a little melt down. The entire staff and the instructor and all the students in the class came to the rescue with words of encouragement, reassurances of the ongoing learning process, and all the support tools available to me at any time after the class is over. Intellectually, I knew I was being too hard on myself at the time (I tend to do that!) but emotionally, I was panicking. Thank you to everyone at OTA for sticking with me and making sure I knew I wasn't going to be abandoned!”

“OTA will give you a format and strategy that is very difficult to develop on your own. These steps give you a great advantage over other traders and lead to quicker profits.”

OTA will open a new world of opportunity by removing the mystery of the Stock Market and showing you THE only way to trade in it for ultimate success. OTA WILL teach you and guide you along the path towards independence, which in the end is the real dream for most people. Seize your destiny, learn to be independent for life with OTA! ”

“I came to OTA as a retail trader of the worst kind and I am leaving knowing that I will be a wholesale trader from graduation day forward. My eyes and mind have been opened up to think entirely differently when looking at a chart. I am very confident that I will be a successful trader.”

“The instructor is very knowledgable, the course is very well planned so you learn and add on to what you learned yesterday. The other people in the class were congenial and everyone helped each other. The Program was great as well as enjoyable. I learned a lot.”

“For anyone seriously interested in becoming a trader, I would highly recommend OTA. Over the years, I have been a student with more than one other group and OTA is hands down the best place to get trading education. The hands-on classroom learning environment is fantastic, and the wealth of online resources, including trading sessions and lessons, is second to none. I am confident that OTA is committed to the success of its students, and that I will be able to get the support I need as a student at any time in the future. ”

“I am very thankful to the administrative office for the flexibility they provided me with the enrollment to the academy. This program not only opens up the opportunity to learn to trade, but also the opportunity to see that changes could be done on all levels of our behavior. All things are interconnected. It takes an effort to see what changes could be done to improve life, and this program is definitely one of the helping factors to improve.”

“After 4-5 years of investigating methods to enter the markets as a trader, this was the only one that really clicked for me and made sense.”

“A friend told me if I really wanted to manage my assets and start trading, I needed to take classes at OTA. OTA gave her the foundation to trade successfully and start building her personal assets. I am sure I will be able to say the same thing to someone in my future as a trader. Thanks OTA!!!”

“The concepts and skills learned and acquired at OTA have enabled me to retire early and not feel my lifestyle would be threatened. I cannot state how much my life has been changed for the better because of my commitment to OTA's trading concepts and resources.”

“Without joining Online Trading Academy, I would have just kept giving my money to the market and stayed a novice trader. Now I have the opportunity to be a successful trader.”

“If you are not totally satisfied with your current situation or even if are and want more. Then taking courses here at Online Trading Academy will be an important first step to realizing all your aspirations.”

“A great plus for OTA is the creation of a community to support trading. Courses are available to retake. Then you really get it. The center facilitates a Forex club meeting in the evenings to meet and review. Online resources really help understanding and to learn how to trade. I learn a lot from XLT, Hour with the Pros and Power Trading Radio. Thank you, OTA.”

“Years ago I traded futures and lost all my money. Now I know why. It's the old saying"you don't know what you don't know." Let these people teach you.”

“Time and money spent well worth it.”

“Came here originally with a set of expectations, and they were exceeded. Enjoyed Russ as a teacher and learned to trade the plan. I am ready to go out and apply what I learned in real life. The most valuable piece of information I learned was to make sure that you always place a stop to protect your capital, and review your plan and strategy prior to investing.”

“There is a stigma about traders, that they can be reckless and are simply just gamblers. This school knocks that myth on its ear. The traders and staff are the pinnacle of professionalism, and after the classes the student knows the best methodology for successful trading.”

“This class is awesome. I never thought I would be able to know all this information. Tillie is an awesome instructor, she is so much energetic and provides lots of examples related to real life which are simple to understand. She gives attention to everyone in the class, which is awesome. Ken is the best student coordinator I have seen so far. He calls, sends emails and does continuous follow ups to make sure I get this. He is very, very helpful.”

“Ken and the staff are very helpful!”

“Brandon was very open to demonstrate time and time again of the successful patterns for a successful trade and frankly discussed weak trades as well and the reasons. He ensured we could clearly see the examples of identifying the indicators of the shift in market and how to take advantage of them. Seattle Online Trading Academy is just outstanding in care for the students! A very family and friend oriented place to train, visit and I would expect - work too!”

“I am looking forward to continuing my education with Online Trading Academy! This is the very exciting beginning of a lifetime of learning and change for the better.”

“I can't imagine a more efficient and effective way to cover the class material. The workbooks combined with lectures made it a great experience. ”

“By the end of the week, I really felt I knew how to trade. In addition, since I will be able to contact the teachers and staff at Online Trading Academy in the future I am assured of future assistance. Rod and David were extremely helpful for beginners like me and without them I would have not done very well in this class.”

“The staff at Online Trading Academy is very kind and supportive of students in achieving their objectives. Great credit to Ken for his great attitude and support. He always has a smile on his face and is very cordial to all students.”

“WOW! Where do I start? I have been successfully trading for a while, but now I will be totally redoing my trading plan and I anticipate multiplying my profits by 10 times, and I will sleep better at night because I will be taking on less risk. Bob, you're the BEST! Online Trading Academy Seattle is the best!”

“My wife and I never had a trading course or exposure to the trading market until these classes. Very impressed with the instructor and dynamics that go into making it work.”


“This is my third retake. Each time I learn something new from a different teacher, from HIS/HER perspective. This has been very valuable for me. Even if you decide to never trade in your life, this has been a great financial education and I'm very glad to have attended. ”

“I truly enjoyed the class and feel that I have been given a good value for my money.”

“Thanks for helping me make more in 3 days than I have made all month! Your market insight and trading plan are amazing.”

“The level of material and presentation continues to surprise in excellence.”

“Anyone thinking of trading should not start before getting this training.”

“All of my instructors and classes have been excellent. It makes a huge difference that I can retake the class and learn different things from different instructors or the same things in different ways, or pick up things I didn't get the first time around. That makes all the difference in the world to be able to do that because of the learning curve and complexity of the material.”

“I feel I am learning to use great tools to protect MY money, secure my future and have left over income to help others who may need it. At my age, I have all I want except for the yacht. So helping by teaching friends, family and community is within reach.”
