Get Started with Your Financial Education

Trading is a competition between two sides where there is always a winner and a loser. In our Core Strategy courses, you will learn skills and techniques to help you buy and sell ETFs like a professional trader. We will teach you a simple, rules-based strategy which is designed to keep you on the winning side. This strategy helps you to identify key market turning points and major moves in advance. The Core Strategy courses (formerly known as Professional Trader) focus on stock trading using ETFs, although the skills and discipline you will learn are applicable to any asset class. The course is divided between Core Strategy (5 days) and Part 2 (2 days); which are taken together. We deliver powerful and fully interactive lectures led by a professional trader combined with live trading sessions focusing on market analysis and trade execution.

“The education at OTA is second to none and I have sampled quite a few. At the very onset their patterned Core Strategy and concepts give you a deep level of confidence that, applied correctly, success is highly probable. Like everything else, practice makes perfect and the individual's commitment and hard work is what eventually makes the difference of success levels achieved. With an abundance of ongoing education, practice and guidance available, I leave the Core Strategy Class with high hopes of success. The student support so cheerfully provided goes a long way to boost morale and build confidence. Though the fee may initially appear to be high, as you go through the courses, one very fast realizes its value. Yes it's worth every penny and much more. Thank you, OTA, will keep you informed of my progress as I go along. I am delighted to be with OTA. You truly make a difference in the lives of those who go through you. Thank you.”

“The Core Strategy introduces new concepts that you may not be familiar with but it is the first pieces of the puzzle. As you progress within the program, the puzzle gets progressively assembled until you have assembled enough to get a clear picture.”

“This is a great class if you have little to no knowledge of trading. The core strategy class takes you step by step through the trading process, beginning with the basics. It's a very hands on class and after graduating the seven day program, I feel like I have a good grasp and understanding of the strategy. Now I plan to open up a practice account and test my understanding and start making trades. ”

“As someone who had no knowledge about the stock market and how the trading sector worked, the core strategy program is an excellent introduction as well as thought provoking look at the world and the market interactions. Learning all of this is very helpful but it also shows that as markets change we must stay vigilant.”
