Online Trading Academy
The world leader in professional education for traders who want to succeed in any market, and any asset class.
Online Trading Academy’s roots can be traced back to 1997, as one of the largest trading floors in the U.S., with 180 traders averaging half a billion dollars in daily transactions. To improve results, managers and the top traders offered daily coaching sessions in how to trade more consistently and profitably.
In 2001, we shifted our focus to solely providing education. Today we have a community of over 10,000 students that have learned to trade with the skill and confidence of professional traders.
Trader education for every need and experience level:
We offer professional instruction in all of our state-of-the-art teaching facilities around the world, as well as a wide array of home study materials.
Classes cover a spectrum of trading styles and asset classes, from Short Term Trading, Swing Trading, Position Trading, and Investment Theory for Stocks, Exchange Traded Funds, Options, Futures (Eminis & Commodities) and Currencies.
Our on-location courses are geared toward individual investors or traders, novice or experienced, who want to learn how to use the same tools and professional trading techniques as the professional traders on Wall Street. These courses offer a complete education and training experience focusing on trading fundamentals, technical analysis, risk management, and highly-developed skills of execution for virtually any trading instrument.
Once the mechanics of trading have been learned, graduates may opt to spend an additional training period in our virtual classroom called Extended Learning Track, an online learning experience which enables the student to choose the area of study that best fits their chosen trading style, asset class and learning objectives. We have also developed a series of home-study CDs, which can be used on their own or in conjunction with our courses.
Most of the classes we teach offer tuition reimbursement from our broker/dealer partners, so essentially you are taking the class for free! And we are unique in integrating live trading by the student in the class, with all expenses paid by us. We give you an account and cover your commissions and losses because we believe the only way to learn trading is to do it, in the live market with an experienced trader/instructor at your side.
As an Online Trading Academy student, you’ll become part of a community of active traders committed to succeed through continuously improving their professional skills. In fact, many of our classes offer free “retakes” for as long as you’re associated with us while others offer lifetime learning at a reasonable cost.
No proof! No boards or way for members to communicate with each other.
From a very concerned student
I find it very concerning that there is no ‘open forum’ on the OTA website where students can openly communicate with each other / start blogs / discussion threads etc.
Other Trading education organisations have this facility of allowing members to freely communicate/ discuss trades/ set-ups and the ‘picks’ that are called. But not OTA. WHY ?
I also find is VERY CONCERNING INDEED that when completing the online tutoring (XLT) survey every month that the percentage of students trading successfully is tiny. There is obviously something very wrong.
Considering the boast of OTA that it’s the biggest and the best and that they have had many thousands of students attend their courses across the world (paying top dollar prices) I would have thought that they would have produced at least HUNDREDS of successful traders over the years – wouldn’t anyone think that?
Could OTA please prove this ?
I would very much like to be proven wrong with my doubts about OTA.
Excellent, in my opinion the best trading education you can get with superb support and aftercare
Highly recommended particularly if your strucggling, it is worth every dollar of teh cost
Some people are never going to learn how to trade as long as they have a hole in their arse, this also applies to some OTA grads so there is no guarantee that this is a path to massive riches. What it does deliver is a structured education programme and the most important part is the chance to live trade in a classroom environment (not a hotel) for about 4 days under the advice of a coach. This is what marks the difference between the training programmes. Of all of them, OTA is Tops, It teaches students how to trade, it teaches the pitfalls, it teaches a range of strategies, it teaches trade planning and risk management. The aftercare is unparalleled and I would love to be challenged on this.
