Ripoff Report REVIEW /Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

Online Trading Academy joins Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a long name for a program that does a lot for both consumers and business alike.

Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a program that benefits the consumer, which helps to increase consumer satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business Verified By Ripoff Report.

When a company or individual joins the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Program, they must make a commitment to us - in writing - to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' What does that mean? It means that Ripoff Report expects that members of our Corporate Advocacy Program will review and respond to ALL customer complaints promptly. It means that every complaint will be taken seriously, and every customer will be treated fairly and with respect. It means if a customer did not receive what they expected, the company will work with that customer to fix the issue. It means that if a customer requests a refund and if there is any reasonable basis for that request, we expect the customer will be given a prompt refund (some refund requests may not be reasonable, so this does not mean a refund is guaranteed in every case). "Making things right" can mean lots of different things to different people, but our point is this - by working closely with the company or individual to resolve any disputes, Ripoff Report can track the footprints of customer service to ensure that our Corporate Advocacy Program members are doing everything they can to treat customers fairly and to increase their customer satisfaction.



ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM THE REST

By ED Magedson - Founder, Ripoff Report

Online Trading Academy approached Ripoff Report with the intent of wanting to resolve any customer issues and reports posted on Ripoff Report.

As a Part of the Corporate Advocacy Program the member business allows Ripoff Report to send an email to all of those who filed a complaint in the past, letting the customer know, the member business wanted to make things right with them, whatever it takes to do so. Ripoff Report always monitors these emails to insure the member business does what they agreed to. The people at Online Trading Academy did just that.



ONLINE TRADING ACADEMY GROUP CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS

" Most of us are taught at a very young age to mind our money and not waste our savings by paying too much. Whether it’s a food item or a new home, we try to get it at the best possible price and, where applicable, sell at a higher price. Unfortunately, this logic does not prevail in the investment industry. Advisers, brokers and the media have conditioned investors to buy AFTER a stock or other asset has already run up its price and either hold it or sell if the price goes down. Meanwhile the investment banks and Wall Street institutions do exactly the opposite. They “buy at wholesale, sell at retail” in trades with everyday investors—making fortunes while the average person loses or barely breaks even.

Online Trading Academy teaches students how they can think and act like the market professionals they have been trading against. Using a patented supply-and-demand strategy, they learn how they can identify points where the price of an asset is likely to turn in order to make low-risk, high-potential entries and exits in the market. This strategy can be effective for any asset class and any profit objective, from current income to retirement security.



WHY ONLINE TRADING ACADEMY IS BETTER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS

Online Trading Academy is unique in teaching a patented strategy to buy and sell in any market condition, combined with intensive coaching to help students develop the skills and gain the self-discipline to make consistent decisions that are not guided by emotion. Past (defunct) competitors offered road show classes in rented halls; we teach in a hands-on environment either at our physical campuses or online, where students use professional workstations and applications to trade like professionals.

Most of our classes include live market exercises, and in our Core Strategy class, students trade live in the markets on our accounts with our money. Students follow the instructor’s example as he or she weighs opportunities in real time and makes go or no-go decisions. This, combined with education in key investing principles, lays a solid foundation for the new investor as well as experienced traders seeking to improve their skills.

Online Trading Academy students also have access to a comprehensive support system including online resources, readily available technical support and a community of fellow student-investors. In addition, students may retake any paid on-location course or live online course at any time, at no charge, to improve their knowledge.



ONLINE TRADING ACADEMY – STATEMENTS FROM THE PRESIDENT – EYAL SHAHAR

" My name is Eyal Shahar, and I am the founder and President of Online Trading Academy (OTA). I want to thank you for taking the time to review OTA. I know what it’s like to have financial problems. In 1983, I lost nearly everything I had in a stock market crash. After completing my service in the Israeli Air Force, I decided to spend a year traveling the world. I was on an island in Asia and when I called home for my dad to send me more money and he told me my investments (which were all in “safe” bank stocks) had been wiped out.

With $300 in my pocket and a plane ticket to Los Angeles, I flew to the United States. After a couple of jobs and owning several businesses, I started a trading floor in 1997, that ended up becoming one of the largest trading floors in the U.S. It was then that I realized that my true passion was to help enrich other people’s lives with professional-style trading and investing skills.

Today I am so proud of how everyone at OTA is so passionate and focused on our students’ success. We have now grown to over 40 learning centers in 7 countries around the world. We have a community of 250,000 likeminded traders and investors who have experienced our education.

I take feedback very seriously because OTA is focused on not only helping our students learn professional-grade trading and investing skills but also to achieve their “why”—the things that matter most to them, whether that’s working less and spending more time with family, supplementing their income or building towards the retirement of their dreams. Building a great company with passionate students and amazing employees that are truly creating a positive impact on the world is a great labor of love for me, so thank you again for your reviews.

At Online Trading Academy we pride ourselves in using the highest quality PRODUCTS.
