OTA is a gem! I have often leafed through stock magazines amazed at how one could trade, not to mention make money from it. As I take the courses I am placed right in the midst of professional trading: how the markets work; how to safeguard my money; how to take intelligent risks; how to discipline myself through core strategies; and how to analyze the markets- whether they are up or down, to make money. The fear of trading is conquered by knowing where to find supply and demand through the story that the market gives me. That is exciting!!!
Alex Perna is an excellent instructor. I follow his sessions on the XLT with keen expectation. He is very clear and consistent. Also, he shows personal interest in the student’s development. I hope he will take part at some OTA events in London.

Anyone sincerely interested in trading needs good education as trading is a skill and an art of a very unique kind. There is so much to know and learn and yet there is a simplistic approach to flow with the flow of markets. Basically, it is the art of “seeing”. If one can “see” the real opportunities, then there is possibility to make $$$. OTA has created a fantastic program that really taught me how to “see” the market. Thank you for transforming the complex jungle of trading to simple graceful art of trading.

I have been with Online Trading for about six months and although I haven’t mastered the art of trading I have learned a lot and am getting better every day. Watching the online recordings are very helpful. It’s a must. Also, I would like to thank Ed Huggins for all his help. He is there anytime I have a question or problem and is quick to respond. Thank you Ed.

I have interviewed countless CPAs, CFPs, financial advisers, attorneys, estate planners… whatever, and it seems they all have the perfect solution to my problem. And what a coincidence! It just happens to be what they are selling… life insurance, annuities, social security adjustment… whatever. OTA is also selling something. They want me to take more classes. (Okay. They are a for profit business after all). But along the way I get absolute truthful answers to my questions, “unadorned” with any hidden agenda. And, wonderfully (and unlike ANYONE else), they have NO FEAR of the market or of working its subtleties.
OTA folks are not your Buy and Hold, “Don’t worry, your tanking stock is sure to come back… some day” folks. If something’s not working out pretty quickly, they are out of it. Plus, they will trade ANYTHING… Stocks, Bonds, Euro, Gold, ETFs, Soybeans, not to mention Diagonal Bear Put Spreads on futures on the S&P 500, etc., etc. Just try convincing your rep at Morgan Stanley, or Schwab, or Wells Fargo Advisors to do that! Are they expensive? Well, let’s just say they are not cheap. However, if you take all of what they have to offer, you’ll get what amounts to an entire college education over the course of only about six weeks and for the price of about one year’s tuition at a decent university (and without having to waste your time taking all those annoying and non-productive classes on the History of the Mesopotamian Bot Fly either). And don’t forget – like the bumper sticker says, “If you think education is expensive – try ignorance!”

I can’t say enough about the staff and instructors. I truly feel they are rooting for my success.

OTA teaches you how you can handle trading and investment in a intelligent way. I learned how to get in charge of my investments. It is not an easy road and it does take time to build the confidence but I can handle my 401K and IRA (with ETFs) along with some day trading for a little extra income trading future contracts.
