I’m convinced these courses have made me a better and more confident trader. The system makes sense and has proven itself over and over.
The class is jam-packed with theory, hands-on experience and many opportunities to learn through observation on how the pros succeed where most of us have failed in the past. Once we get this new information we will have it for life, increasing our independence and security — if we follow the OTA rules. And why wouldn’t we, when it makes so much sense?

Online Trading Academy has by far been the best educational investment that I have ever made. I have great respect for all of the staff and instructors, and thank them ALL for taking time to train new professional traders how to do it the “right” way.

I like that there is a time for sales and a time for education where there is no expectation of a sales pitch. This makes me feel very comfortable and negates a lot of what I have read on the internet in the beginning, when I was learning about and researching OTA prior to joining. I also like how the staff truly wants to get to know you as a person and not just a money maker for them.

When I was trading on my own I was a consistently losing money, no matter how much I gained. It was a very frustrating experience, so I just gave up. Many years later, I decided to begin looking again for information about trading, saw an advertisement for your services on “Colorado’s Best” on Channel 2 in Denver with Paula Haddock — and I know she promotes “the good guys” so I decided to call. I was pleasantly surprised at how willing everyone was to help us understand the system, and help transition us into the classes. I don’t think I would have signed up on my own without that. I was really impressed with the LACK of attitude, or “we’re the best” mentality, but even more impressed with all of the staff who consistently demonstrated a friendly, helpful, desire to genuinely help everyone learn, regardless of their personal situation, and become successful at trading. I really appreciated the “can do” emphasis on becoming a true professional doing this, and making it your own full-time career and/or business in the longer term. I also found that in interacting with the other students, they seemed to adopt many of the same positive attitudes demonstrated by all of the staff at the training center, and were also becoming like-minded, which was very encouraging. There was NEVER any “smoke and mirrors,” “high pressure,” or anything like that to join the classes, trade, or do anything I didn’t want to — what a refreshing experience!

I am very impressed with the quality of the facility and staff of OTA, but am most impressed with the approach to training new traders. The holistic approach of identifying trading opportunities, proper risk management, successful trade execution, and addressing the psychological framework for trading is the route that I feel would best prepare students for a successful trading career. Making the student feel that they can successfully trade the markets without losing everything is a major hurdle overcome. Wish I had spent my money on education instead of losing trades!

I am not certain of where I really want to go or where I will end up. The important thing is to follow the plan and become more proficient in learning and ensure implementing the plan always. The integrity of your organization comes through loud and clear. You are who you say you are. You are there to provide instruction, provide support and continued learning.
