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.
My experience at OTA in Norwalk, CT has been nothing short of phenomenal. OTA offers instructors who are real traders with decades of experience, always willing to help with any questions you may have, in class or out of class via email. The staff is always pleasant, courteous and professional, offering tons of support whenever I needed it. I’m a nurse by profession, with no prior trading experience, and have only been trading live since January, and I’m already doing very well in the futures and Forex markets. I plan to trade full time by the end of this year. I recommend OTA for anyone who has a desire to learn how to successfully trade the financial markets.

The course was incredibly informative, but more importantly, the instructor made the course imaginative and highly intelligent from many different aspects by bringing in his own personal experiences and work experiences. Through that personal touch, the futures materials took on their own life, making a new impact on us as students, and left an educational curve that was both simplistic enough to understand and incredibly encouraging. His ability to interface with all present educational levels within the class was his most significant characteristic. As one knows, most of these courses have students of many experience levels present at any given time and I felt that John dealt with all of them equally and in a seamless manner. My feelings have definitely directed my interest to any XLTs and any futures classes that John Rowland will offer going forward in OTA.

I was trading stocks before I came to Online Trading Academy and thought I knew what I was doing. I was wrong. I had no idea how much leverage was allowed in the Futures and Forex markets, along with the tax benefits. Also, I was trading based on Quarterly and Annual news, along with company reports and although I was profitable I had no idea how to trade supply and demand. Online Trading Academy not only taught me how to trade in different ways, it opened up my mind to many other trading strategies and markets where I can invest my money.

I came to OTA a true beginner. I’ve never invested in the markets or made a trade in my life. Having taken the Pro Trader and Futures classes, I feel very confident in my ability to begin a new career. I performed well in simulated and live trading in class, and I am certain I have the education required to put myself in a position for success in the markets. Instructors are entertaining, patient and care for their students. I highly recommend OTA.

I took the Futures Course with Craig Weil as my instructor approximately two years ago. A lot of life changes occurred in the interim and it was time to retake the course. The second time through the course served as an excellent refresher and definitely corrected some bad practices that I had incorporated into my trading practice. Every Online Trading Academy instructor that I’ve had was truly outstanding and tremendous communicators!! Many thanks for your support!!
