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.

What You Will Learn

  • The Zero Sum Game

    Trading is a transfer of money from those who don't know how the markets work, to those who do. Unlock the truth as you learn to identify two types of traders and recognize their activity on a price chart.

  • Professional Trading Platform

    Using professional tools is critical to ensure you get the best price and manage risk appropriately. Learn how the pros trade with a direct access workstation and Level II pricing data that shows you the power behind the markets in real time.

  • Charting and Technical Analysis

    Learn how to recognize an imbalance of supply and demand on a price chart in order to plan your entry and exit points. Identify which technical indicators are valuable odds-enhancers, and which can be safely ignored.

    Use advanced risk management techniques to ensure consistency in your trades and help take the emotions out of your decisions.

What Students Are Saying

“I enrolled in Core retake to get access to CliK, but found the information super helpful to take again. There were lots of little things I needed a refresher on and was skipping because it was so difficult to follow my trade plan with IB. Trading was also not very enjoyable. Canadian OTA members rejoice if CliK continues to deliver - I think OTA will be in a game of its own. Jordan, Patti, and Support made this retake a joy to attend and I really looked forward to each day.”

“In my quest to add another revenue source, I came across OTA. Gaining faith from the intro meeting and followed by the 3 day MTO seminar, I took the plunge to this commitment of new learning to change our family's lifestyle. Today, just exiting the Core Strategy 7-day course, I would urge anyone who is looking for an opportunity to turn their lives around to look into what OTA provides. I’m now off on my journey for life!”

“Flew across 2 countries to retake the course and it was worth everything. Got me to refocus and brush up on my skills. I love how the classes are evolving as time goes on and I feel very confident in the system.”

“I had high expectations coming into this course, and I definitely feel that they were met and even went beyond. My comprehension is very much improved over the 7 day Core Strategy course. I feel much more confident in making trades. I highly recommend this course!”

“The Core Strategy class was definitely a good investment, and coming out of it, I feel much more comfortable with trading. My confidence with trades has skyrocketed since when I first took the Introductory Market Timing Course. I can now comfortably look at candle charts, and figure out where I need to set my Entry, Target, and Stop. Overall, I feel that this was my first step to becoming a trader, and I am incredibly excited to continue with the Forex Course in the future.”
