Fortress Capital Trading Academy (FCTA) was founded in 2016 by a group of veteran Forex traders and financial professionals, with the goal of teaching people Trading, Investing, Banking, Foreign Exchange, Money, and other financial concepts. Being in this business for a long time, we felt the need for a complete educational course, like what you would receive in a Business University. The fact is that there isn't something like "Currency Management" taught in B schools. Even high finance schools teach topics which are outdated by decades (for example, that FX rates can be predicted by Interest Rate Parity Theory - anyone who ever traded FX live knows that doesn't work - or else everyone would be an FX millionaire). So, we assembled some of the best experts, the best resources, the finest materials, and put it together in our first course, Introduction to Foreign Exchange.

    Steve Utley

    Vice President, FX

      Stephen James Utley, MBA was born, raised and educated in the UK, where he excelled academically and athletically, as captain of both his high school and university rugby teams, Steve found early on he was more suited to making decisions and taking charge than being told what to do by others - a leader rather than a follower. Upon earning a II 1 BA honors degree in Industrial Economics from Nottingham University, Steve soon after relocated to the US with his former wife and received a job offer from Gerard Klauer Mattison, a boutique Wall Street institutional brokerage house. After leaving the firm, he began to study and practice the skills of portfolio management, technical and fundamental analysis, which led him to return to school to attain his MBA in finance from Zicklin Business School in New York city. Steve continued to test and design trading systems following his graduation, honing his skills in the FX markets, - drawn to them due to his international background, and knowledge of economic events and conditions that affect the value of currencies. Steve is licensed with the National Futures Association, and holds the series 3 and 34.
