The XLT – Futures Trading course blends two types of sessions in a very structured environment. Lesson sessions make up approximately 40% of the course curriculum. Each lesson focuses on teaching a specific concept that continues your trading education. Trading and Analysis sessions make up the remaining 60% of the course curriculum and apply the knowledge you have gained in live market conditions. Trading and Analysis sessions are conducted during active market hours with the purpose of identifying real trading opportunities using a very objective rule-based strategy.

Forty-two sessions are delivered over a 12-week period, with each session lasting approximately 2 hours in length. Lesson sessions repeat every 12-weeks, providing solid learning reinforcement. Each Trading and Analysis session is unique as the instructor and students, together, proactively and dynamically respond to live-market conditions.

“I love everything about Online Trading Academy and I do not regret a single minute on joining this beautiful community or family if I can say. Still impressed about how the instructors are patient and care for helping us on every question we have. It's like a mother who cares about their children. I see light at the end of the tunnel. Bachir and Chris have a very amazing personality, and saying thanks I think is not enough. As my instructor says, "it's just the beginning," and it's true, Online Trading Academy does take care of us even after this class as they will not leave us alone. Joining XLT is another step which is wonderful and I feel myself lucky to join this wonderful community. These instructors are like ocean of knowledge. Well, there is lot more to say and I do believe words sometimes can't replace what you feel inside yourself. No one has told me to say these things, I'm saying It from the bottom of my heart.”

“I have taken the Professional Trader, Futures class and the Platform Immersion class. The knowledge and execution skills are invaluable to me. I will also continue to use the XLTs to reinforce and enhance my trading skill set.”

“Typical Online Trading Academy experience (excellent). I came well prepared for this class by 4-5 weeks of viewing XLT trades and lessons - particularly lessons from this instructor. As a result, I had the skills for TradeStation and the major trade strategies (8-89, opening gap, etc). The value of the class was the reinforcement of the instruction and the refinement of techniques. This is the best way to prepare for these classes - particularly for this instructor.”

“Actively attending XLT stock and futures classes helps me feel confident in trading supply and demand. My trading has gone from timid, almost frozen, to confidently taking trades off of good supply and demand levels. I just want to thank you for the great instructions in the XLT classes.”
