Fishy or what, in fact a real cynic would put a large amount of money on the fact that darren's original question was a plant in the first place.........

Still waiting for the next person with almost no posts on this board to pop up writing positive things

Hi Anley/Darren
Dont see how the number of posts is relevant - I'd been searching for any bad news/comments about OTA and came across Darrens post and was trying to help - I'm not at all experienced in using this kind of forum - it seems to have a life of its own and is a bit self fulfilling although I can absolutely see how it can be manipulated for commercial reasons. The thing is- if you dont want to spend months/years reading up on this subject in isolation and you dont want to reinvent the wheel in terms of planning risk management strategy execution etc - who do you trust? In business I've always tried to find people that are more knowledgeable and succesful than me to learn from and then replicate what they do.

I am also doing the Online Academy course.
what is impressive about it is:-
(1) you get assigned a MENTOR to help you - and it is for life - not for a few months
(2) the trainers are TOP TRADERS - not just some novices who trade for a while
(3) all course are for LIFE - free repetition anywhere in the world - for life
(4) course are 7 days - and you get full support for life - not for a while
(5) Yes - they do have follow up courses but not in the same field. so if you want to go into options - yes there is another course - but that is to be expected - they are not pretending that there is just one course for everything
(6) you also get lifetime access to their trading club
so overall - compared to greg or darren winters courses - they offer much more. there is no time limit - you learn until you get it. and your mentors are world class traders

anyone been - I would welcome their comments - I have just registered - not attended yet.

I have been to other courses that were total crap.

this one seems different - but time will tell

they've said that if I am not impressed - I will get a refund - and they have written this into the contract.

hiya

i'm a big fan of OTA, have been on a couple of their courses and the webinar XLT, so i have no axe to grind. But ... be careful not to get too carried away with the sales pitch. May i correct you?
  • you do not get a mentor for life. you can informally email questions to the tutors, but there is no obligation to reply.
  • the trading 'Grads' club at St Albans is £30/month

How about one of these courses teach someone for FREE then and only charge them if that person is profitable?

Its all about how you interpret the education, how much time you dedicate to trading, whether you develop your learning, how you analyse the results and change your plan to suit. I guess 75% of people after attending courses dont do the above and lose interest once they have blown 50% of their account or more, or just Sim trade for many months or even years. I know a few people that fit the above. Therefore it would be imposible for these courses to be commercially viable if the income was say 25% of overhead and then only after sucess had been measured say 1-2 years.

And there's their get out clause right there when you ask for your refund.
