We actively trade each day during regular trading hours

Our day as student traders at OTA starts early (here in Seattle that means 6:00am!). Fortunately, the location is great, parking plentiful, the offices warm and inviting. Hot coffee/tea and snacks await as we begin our journey down another of the many paths to becoming professional day traders. Our instructors come from everywhere (this week Jerry Baldwin hailed from Chicago) bursting with knowledge and enthusiasm and ready to impart their wisdom and extensive experience. We actively trade each day during regular trading hours, rejoicing in our wins, boo-hooing our losses as we continue to hone our ever increasing knowledge and skills. Trading can be a bit lonely, but at OTA you are part of a family, all of whom are here to make your journey fun, exciting and rewarding. Our success is their success! Thanks to all here in Seattle: Bill, Gerri, Franklin, Darlene, (and this week Jerry Baldwin) and most especially my fellow students! Happy Trading!

Thank you for the excellence in education

Last week Chuck Fulkerson had asked us to submit a review for the Pro Trader XLT he gave to the class. The letter is attached. I’d only add I’ve attended Platform Immersion, Trade Plan Prep and now have completed my second day of Futures with Don Dawson. All equally amazing.

Dear Chuck Fulkerson,

I wrote a lot of letters while serving as a medic in the US Army. That experience helped me become a very good note taker in college and now here with OTA. As example, this last week I recorded 16 pages of notes, (two lines, single-spaced) while attending the Tim Pesut Pro Trader class here in Minneapolis, and this wasn’t my first experience with the material.

Before I review Tim’s class, I would like to share that I’ve been with OTA for about one year, attending all asset classes within the first four months or so. My wife and I decided to move back to our home state after twenty-four years of practicing as Chiropractor in Wisconsin, and, to make a long story short, I needed to hire an associate doctor to free up my schedule. The process took a bit longer than I anticipated, which caused a lapse in my learning curve. Enrolling in the retake course has been enlightening, and based on taking multiple classes with differing instructors, my exposure to the OTA Program has been significant.

I’m not sure I can properly communicate to you the words to describe how impressed I am with the quality education and instructors who facilitate the OTA Program. I’ve been around the block a few times: B.S. degree, Doctorate in Chiropractic, multiple postgraduate certification programs, continuing ed., etc. My experience with the OTA instructors can be summed up in one word – amazing! From Mike Siewruk who did the Market Timing Workshop (a big reason why I joined OTA with my son Josh as MMC) to Scott Chrisan-Pro Trader, Ed Ponsi-Forex, and Craig Weil-Futures – all my instructors were informative, inviting, and very accommodating. They relay difficult material with patience and compassion. And they are genuinely interested in their students’ comprehension. Whatever policies and procedures are being used by OTA for selecting instructors, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Most recently, the Tim Pesut’s lecture in Minneapolis last week was over the top. The best week of education I’ve ever experienced anywhere. It was like being in the room with Mad Money Cramer amount of information yet taught to us in a much more John Wayne relaxed style of learning. I’m sure he would love that comparison. Tim’s ability to share market interrelationships and the dynamics of many asset classes as well as Equities was phenomenal; his material resonates with returners (like myself) and the first timers, who though feeling overwhelmed are able to glean important take-a-ways from his talks because of the comfortable, welcoming atmosphere Tim creates.

In addition to the material and instructors, this center is another example of OTA’S commitment to excellence. Kevin Young, the owner, is very dedicated and supportive to the needs of our students. Ray Hague runs a very smooth program. Monica keeps us all organized. My counselor, Shawn Johnson, and the student support staff, Spencer Lewis and Stephanie Struzyk, seem to always be available and eager to assist the students with their needs.

In summary, my experience with OTA across the board has been nothing short of a “WOW.” As I get ready to go live, I’m sure there will be struggles and many challenges. When I do have to face them I know there is a team of people available and ready to help.

Thank you for the excellence in education.

the staff truly wants to get to know you as a person and not just a money maker

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.

everyone here DOES want YOU to SUCCEED

I’m Ukrainian and joined the Online Trading Academy in the end of July 2014. I can see now that it’s for sure one of THE BEST DECISIONS I MADE IN MY LIFE. The approach of the Academy is entirely personal and everyone here DOES want YOU to SUCCEED. Tuition rates do seemed quite high in the beginning, but once I started taking classes and straight away applying it, on demo account at first – I really saw my results improving literally almost every day, and the amounts of money I started to make really showed me what I was paying for. I plan to continuously study, because the world of finance is entirely another planet and there’s always something you should know.
