How long has OTG been in business?

OTG has been helping, training, and teaching people to day trade oil since 2010

Will Jason trade my account for me?

Jason and the Oil Trading Group is NOT a licensed broker/dealer and legally cannot trade investor money.  Besides, wouldn’t you rather trade your own account anyway? Isn’t that the REAL reason you came to the Oil Trading Group.  It is our mission to help you learn, grow, and make your OWN trading decisions?

How big of account do I need to trade oil?

Legally we cannot tell you how much capital it takes to succeed at oil trading.  That being said, we can say that here at OTG we put a VERY heavy emphasis on money and risk management.  Day trading can provide great rewards, but it also has great risk.  NEVER risk capital that you cannot afford to lose.  If you have minimal capital to begin your day trading business, we recommend you investigate TopstepTrader, one of our partners; they FUND day traders just like you upon completion of a TopstepTrader Combine and successful completion of Live Trader Prep.  The REAL beauty of a Topsteptrader Combine is that there’s minimal risk and the risk management skills offered by OTG will assist you in becoming a fully funded trader.

What is OTG’s trading philosophy?

The foundation of our trading philosophy is based on the study and understanding key support and resistance levels, these levels (or areas of congestion) are the basis of our day trading decisions. To learn more about our trading philosophy CLICK HERE.

Another part of the OTG Trading Philosophy (and this is where MANY day trading educators fall short) is educating and practicing strong risk management.  “We can’t control the markets, but we CAN control the risk”.

Is this room for trading oil only?

Yes, we only trade the CL (oil).  We feel that not only does oil offer some of the best day trading opportunities, but the CL is what we KNOW, what we are good at, and is our primary focus.  We also feel that TRYING to focus on several different markets at one time can be VERY distracting.  We’ve all heard the term “A Jack of all trades is a master of nothing”?  Day trading is no different when it comes to trying to trade 3, 4, or even 10 markets at a time.  ***Update*** We are now trading the ES as well.  While we still believe that oil can provide you with all the opportunities necessary to be consistently profitable, we also offer our Market Maker Level course (CLICK HERE) which has proven to be highly effective on the ES (really these levels work on all markets).

Are the blog articles on your website free to non-members?

YES!!!!!! Here at OTG we are ALL ABOUT helping traders as we are traders ourselves.  All of the articles, blog posts, and videos are yours to view anytime, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  You’ll find tons of information that can help you answer MANY of your questions regarding trading oil and what we are about here at the Oil Trading Group.

How long will it take me to learn how to successfully trade oil?

The learning curve for new traders varies from person to person. If you attend the room on a daily basis and apply yourself to learning our methodology and philosophy, the “learning curve” could be shorter. Day trading is not a get rich quick scheme, anyone that tells you it IS, is NOT being forthright.  Day trading is a business and needs to be treated as such. Our most successful students trade in SIM mode until they have become acclimated with our trading style, day trading methodology, and are CONFIDENT in THEIR OWN Abilities (Yes, you can learn to do this on your own).

Do you offer a trial?

Yes we offer all guests a 2 day free trial in our trading room. We run special promotions at various times during the year so email us for more details at

Are the OTG Indicators included in your room subscriptions?  What platforms do they work on?

Our 6 month, 12 month, and lifetime packages INCLUDE all of our indicators.  Here at OTG, we feel that NinjaTrader is one of the best options for the professional trader and all of our day trading tools are coded only for the NinjaTrader Platform.

Do you call out entries, targets and stops?

Yes, our lead trader Jason trades a $150,000 TopstepTrader combine account in the day trading room and all of his oil trades are announced in the day trading room and can be seen live, on your computer screen.  You’ll see the entries, profit targets, and suggested stop loss placement.  You’ll see Jason’s charts live, in full view when you participate in the OTG chat room. Our goal here at OTG is for you to learn how to use these tools, on your own, and becoming a successful day trader. If you REALLY want to learn how to trade the CL on your own, are willing to take the time, work hard, and really apply yourself, then the Oil Trading Group could be just the organization to help you accomplish this.  If you just want to “follow someone”, “shadow trade”, or are looking to be “spoon fed”, then OTG is probably not the place for you.

What is your affiliation with TopstepTrader?

We consider TopstepTrader the ultimate partner, not just for us, but for YOU, the trader.  Although we do partnership which is designed to help our members become funded traders, we are separate companies.  Also, we are very proud to announce that Jason was recently chosen by TopstepTrader to be the lead oil educator.  You can hear Jason providing “live” market analysis every morning from 8:45 AM CST to 9 AM Central Standard Time on TopstepTrader Squawk Radio every day.
