OTA did not just give me a fish, they taught me how to fish. During my first week here at “Online Eating Academy” (lol) they didn’t just feed my belly with food, they fed my brain with knowledge and my heart with joy. Great energy that you can’t buy. Thanks again.
There is a reason that OTA is the best in the business at teaching traders. The teaching, support and products give you everything you need to be successful as a trader. Thank you very much.

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.

I’ve taken Pro Trader 1 with Tillie & Pro Trader 2 with Chris Manson. The fact that both exude an extreme level of passion to teach people how to trade is incredible. The instructors at OTA never show signs of having a long day, and not even a ‘long’ week of teaching us. In fact, they are even more excited and energized on the last day! They leave us encouraged, motivated and wanting to follow our trading plan.
