About Roy Van

Hi everyone:

Welcome to Online Trading Center, where you can find information to anything that has to do with any kind of online trading.

Our mission is to help you be the best trader you can be and learn from our mistakes.


I was at the same time fortunate and unfortunate enough to be one of the first daytraders in the world.

I was originally interested in buying a Block Trading franchise, but after seeing all the excitement of trading live, I decided to become a full-time daytrader instead.

I signed up for a 1-month class June 1997 (1 of 30 students) and paid $4000.00 to Block Trading in Irvine, CA, which later became Online Trading Academy (OTA).

I was one of 3 survivors from the 1st class of 30 students, and as other students came, I helped with the curriculum and development of OTA courses, seminars and latter part of 1997 became VP of OTA, I was at OTA from 1997-2000.

To make a long story short, we were the guinea pigs of daytrading, slaughtered like cattle.

By losing thousands of dollars, we finally figured it out and started making money and started making a living from live online trading.

We traded all the IPOs as they went public live, and we were the first to use Level II software from Cybertrader.

One of the IPOs, Amazon, symbol AMZN, became my favorite stock still and I still own and trade it today.

My wife and I both love the company, and we buy most items through Amazon online, and we also subscribe to Prime to get free shipping.


We want to help you NOT to make the same mistakes we did. We have developed our own trading style and systems that we want to share with you.


Our goal is simple- we want you to learn how to make money and limit your losses.

If you ever have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Roy van Broekhuizen
