OTA has been the best thing that has ever happened to us. My wife and I are both learning to trade. Our goal is to “retire” to trading for income. OTA is the vehicle that is helping us do that. Instructors are very knowledgeable and well trained in teaching skills. The office is gorgeous – very functional. The staff are very helpful and understanding. If trading is something that you want to learn to do and do well, this is the place to do it.
My experience in the OTA has been eye opening. As a novice trader, who had spent a year trying to teach myself, I am only now beginning to really see the big picture. I found the error in my previous approach and now am able to clearly see a direction and strategy to be a successful trader. The core strategy gives a simple step by step process to increase the odds of a successful trade. It helps me know when and when not to trade as well as where and when to get in and out of a trade. I have renewed excitement about trading and feel I have a solid foundation to build upon. Thank you OTA! Thank you Steve Bobbit, watching out for that “monkey hammer”!

I would say it is a best concept even for the person who does not know anything about shares. I am going totally satisfied and thank OTA to give this valuable treasure of knowledge. Good instructors who simplified the trading of shares.

Last week Chuck Fulkerson had asked us to submit a review for the Pro Trader XLT he gave to the class. The letter is attached. I’d only add I’ve attended Platform Immersion, Trade Plan Prep and now have completed my second day of Futures with Don Dawson. All equally amazing.
Dear Chuck Fulkerson,
I wrote a lot of letters while serving as a medic in the US Army. That experience helped me become a very good note taker in college and now here with OTA. As example, this last week I recorded 16 pages of notes, (two lines, single-spaced) while attending the Tim Pesut Pro Trader class here in Minneapolis, and this wasn’t my first experience with the material.
Before I review Tim’s class, I would like to share that I’ve been with OTA for about one year, attending all asset classes within the first four months or so. My wife and I decided to move back to our home state after twenty-four years of practicing as Chiropractor in Wisconsin, and, to make a long story short, I needed to hire an associate doctor to free up my schedule. The process took a bit longer than I anticipated, which caused a lapse in my learning curve. Enrolling in the retake course has been enlightening, and based on taking multiple classes with differing instructors, my exposure to the OTA Program has been significant.
I’m not sure I can properly communicate to you the words to describe how impressed I am with the quality education and instructors who facilitate the OTA Program. I’ve been around the block a few times: B.S. degree, Doctorate in Chiropractic, multiple postgraduate certification programs, continuing ed., etc. My experience with the OTA instructors can be summed up in one word – amazing! From Mike Siewruk who did the Market Timing Workshop (a big reason why I joined OTA with my son Josh as MMC) to Scott Chrisan-Pro Trader, Ed Ponsi-Forex, and Craig Weil-Futures – all my instructors were informative, inviting, and very accommodating. They relay difficult material with patience and compassion. And they are genuinely interested in their students’ comprehension. Whatever policies and procedures are being used by OTA for selecting instructors, I wouldn’t change a thing!
Most recently, the Tim Pesut’s lecture in Minneapolis last week was over the top. The best week of education I’ve ever experienced anywhere. It was like being in the room with Mad Money Cramer amount of information yet taught to us in a much more John Wayne relaxed style of learning. I’m sure he would love that comparison. Tim’s ability to share market interrelationships and the dynamics of many asset classes as well as Equities was phenomenal; his material resonates with returners (like myself) and the first timers, who though feeling overwhelmed are able to glean important take-a-ways from his talks because of the comfortable, welcoming atmosphere Tim creates.
In addition to the material and instructors, this center is another example of OTA’S commitment to excellence. Kevin Young, the owner, is very dedicated and supportive to the needs of our students. Ray Hague runs a very smooth program. Monica keeps us all organized. My counselor, Shawn Johnson, and the student support staff, Spencer Lewis and Stephanie Struzyk, seem to always be available and eager to assist the students with their needs.
In summary, my experience with OTA across the board has been nothing short of a “WOW.” As I get ready to go live, I’m sure there will be struggles and many challenges. When I do have to face them I know there is a team of people available and ready to help.
Thank you for the excellence in education.

Great trading class experience. I learned a lot and can’t wait start my trading with options. And awesome staff in Woodland Hills.

I just wanted to emphasize that Chris Manson took me to the next level. He did not hold back showing us students what it takes to become successful. He put it together for me and took the time to explain price action in a way I hadn’t heard before. I can now ring the register and be more confident to either go in the other direction or wait for the pull back to get back in. THANK YOU CHRIS MANSON!!!!

My husband and I have been with the Online Trading Academy center in Boston, MA since March 2016. Since that time we have received outstanding educational instruction and unbelievable support from everyone we have encountered within the OTA organization. If you want to learn to be a trader, this is the ONLY place to go. All of OTA’s instructors are experts in the asset classes they teach, having been professional traders with years of experience trading in the market. Check out their online bios. This is one impressive group! We are just completing a 5-day seminar on trading Forex (the foreign currency market) with instructor Keith Gibson. Keith really knows his stuff! He has the ability to bring this complicated subject down to where even a new trader can understand and be successful.
