The course content is much more structured than I anticipated. It is very exciting when you first begin to simulate trades with structure and discipline, and then watch what happens. You can really see the methodology and your own discipline at work!
This course will provide the knowledge base and practical experience to enable a novice to begin successful trading. The personnel are courteous and professional. The instructors are knowledgeable and effectively use the time available to insure all students obtain the knowledge and practical experience to become successful.

OTA has a wonderful staff and is really most excellent at providing you with different ways to learn various asset classes and how to trade profitably. The education process is ongoing and very personal with access to a wide range of extremely knowledgeable instructors and classes both live, recorded, onsite and offsite. You can’t ask for more than that if you are trying to become a successful trader.

This course is great for people who know nothing about trading. I knew nothing. The instructor is the key to this class and the fact that you can retake it as much as you want. Retaking this class with a different instructor is a key element in learning how to trade. Every instructor has a golden nugget for a novice to build upon.

This is a necessary education for most people in today’s economy. If you think that you will be able to live the true American dream of working hard and then enjoying the fruits of your labor. You are wrong! Today’s world has changed drastically & if you don’t learn to change your way of thinking, drastically, you will be left behind. Online Trading Academy enables you to do this with an understanding that it is still up to YOU.

The Instructor, Mike Mc Mahon, was a great experience all onto itself. He was both clear and extensive in his teachings. It did not feel rushed at all; he took the time to answer all questions, give us amazing analogies, added a lot of content to the handbook slides, and provided us with additional document handouts for our benefit. He kept the class moving while providing the individual attention. The depth of his knowledge and experience was a real treat. Would take another class with him any time! I was hesitant about taking an online class because the “In Center” class was so great. However, after having the first Online Class with Mike, I will definitely be taking more online classes because the whole experience was just fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about Mike other than to thank him again for such passion!! Also I need to note that the support person Gregg Lumpkin was extremely helpful and worked with me all through a lunch hour on a technical issue I was having. Thanks, Gregg.

I feel that I have been introduced to many tools that will give me the opportunity to positively change my financial future. I appreciate the honesty from everyone involved in my education that this will take work and time and is not a get rich quick scheme. I also like the fact that community support from the school is strongly suggested. So far the overall experience has been very positive.
