OTA is an excellent choice

I’m going to share my own experience with trading and OTA, mentioning that my goal is to be a full-time trader. Currently I’m working as Sr. software engineer at a brokerage firm in Europe. I was following OTA years ago but I didn’t join it at that time cause of the cost. So, I decided to educate myself and took some other courses but I always felt that I missed somethings because my trading results weren’t that good. So, a year ago I decided to join OTA but really slowly to evaluate my education investment, mentioning that I have some trading experience or at least that’s what I thought. I enrolled only in one course with OTA which is Core Strategy. After I finished it, I gained a huge amount of information which I didn’t know before. After that I decided to continue with the other courses like Futures, Options and MasterMind program. Thanks for the OTA team. They helped me to arrange my education track to fit with my plan and provided me with all the tools and ideas to reach my goal as quickly as possible. When I joined the MasterMind program, I figured out there is information, trading ideas and trading strategies more than I would ever think about. For sure, I’m so happy with my education investment because my trading results started to become better. I’m also busy with developing my own automatic trading application. Thanks again for OTA education. Now I’m at the end of my track but do you think the education stops here? No, the best thing in OTA is that they have a community of students, experienced students and instructors who provide new trade ideas and strategies and discuss it every single day. Finally, trading is like any career, you need to invest time, effort and money to reach your goal. If you want to take trading as your career, become a part-time trader or to increase your income, OTA is an excellent choice.

I really can’t say enough good about OTA

Minneapolis OTA is fantastic! Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Every time you walk in the door they make you feel like they’re thrilled to see you. There is no doubt about the passion to help you on the path to being a successful trader, using a rules based approach with risk management being front and center. I really can’t say enough good about OTA. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I am very thankful to be a part of this campus

I attended OTA 3 years ago. I struggled the past 3 years, and finally came back with the encouragement of my dear, sweet husband to reengage with OTA. Never once did I feel chided for not having returned sooner. My counselor, Adam Darwish, has supported my learning greatly, not only when I was there on campus but through e-mail and texting. He did everything he said he would do. I re-took the Futures class with Michelle Volmering, who remains a superb instructor. She really helps us to understand the process. She gave us many handouts to keep us on track when we returned home. She shared her passion and her life’s ups and downs to help us to feel normal and to have hope, encouraging us to persevere in our education. She goes over and beyond any requirement of duty by providing extra student help sessions with the on-line Mastermind Community (MMC), which she records live on the Atlanta campus, and with Focus Groups, which I was able to attend live while in Atlanta for the week. I live out of state, so I regret that I can’t attend these bimonthly sessions regularly, but I thank the Lord they have the Mastermind community online. Also, I have found the online XLTs extremely helpful. The on campus support staff offers their assistance with very engaging charm. I really appreciate all of the staff, and I want to give a big thank you to Vheda, who helped me with my laptop. She is very competent and spent the necessary extra time to help me with a cheerful attitude. Also, Celeste, David Dobbs and Edmond Gutnecht all helped with enthusiasm during and outside of class. They never made us feel like a burden, or stupid, but instead patiently encouraged and challenged me personally. I admire Taylor Frame as an excellent instructor. I took him a few years ago, but he was very encouraging when I was there on campus last week. Since I did attend 3 years ago, I want to add that OTA has continually re-evaluated and updated their material. I had heard references to the changes while listening to the XLTs online. Therefore, I revisited the online Foundations classes and the Futures classes and found many good changes that clarified what I was seeing in the markets. I want to give a big thank you to Kappa Man in the MMC. He too showed a lot of patience with us students, helping us understand Michelle Volmering’s definitions of levels. Right after joining MMC, I listened to him and felt like the expense was worth it. Furthermore, the online support chat group offers a great deal of help. They work behind the scenes so I want to let them know that I appreciate them. I am very thankful to be a part of this campus and hope, with their continued help and support, to persevere and succeed in the near future with trading, remembering that I don’t have to win even 50% of the time to be successful.

I love our trading center in Phoenix

I love our trading center in Phoenix. It is really family to me. Here, everyone is very helpful in many ways. The instructors and support staff, like Jenifer, Joe and Ron, provide personal assistance and guidance to achieve our goals, even if it takes a long time until the knowledge and experience blend together. They are also very helpful even when it comes to helping with a dead battery in the car. When my car’s battery died, my Road Assistance offered to tow my car to a body shop to the change battery. Consider that I live 3 hours away, it would be a long and stressful experience. But thank God for friendly staff who is helpful not in words only. Toure Gray helped to change the battery in 30 minutes, so much for faster help from Road Assistance. Trading is not easy but with our staff here, learning how to trade is possible.

I was living on a wing and a prayer but not anymore

Some people refer to trading as gambling. They are right unless they have the skills to make an informative decision with a professional education from Online Trading Academy. OTA offers a world class education with 35 centers and 100 instructors worldwide and will teach you to trade like a pro and not like the novice gambler. OTA offers a huge variety of online resources and onsite classroom participation with some of the best pro traders in the world. Their patented program and education will teach you what it’s like to be a pro in a lot less time than it will take to get a college degree. My investment has given me a new start and hope as I reach my pre-retirement years. I was living on a wing and a prayer but not anymore with the ongoing education and support I receive from my Online Trading Academy! Thanks Online Trading Academy! I would also like to add that the Minneapolis, MN location is an incredible support system. My calls are answered or returned promptly, when I need help with my computer I just need to bring it in, and I will say that the staff is top notch. They make all students feel welcome as they are a part of the community, which to me seems to be the backbone of this location and OTA in general. For years I have had to rely on others to make my success and now I only rely on myself and my school at OTA.
