Jared Martinez founded Market Traders Institute (MTI) to provide online trading education and software to the public. With courses developed by and for traders, MTI offers superior education on Forex, cryptocurrency and stocks and options.

Students who enroll at MTI are not just taking courses, they join a supportive and engaging community dedicated to long-term success. From the start, you are connected to a personal success coach to help you design a course plan to match your investment goals, no two plans are the same.

In addition to their services, the MTI family is heavily involved in giving back to their communities. For over 8 years they have participated in the fight against breast cancer by hosting an annual event titled Trading for Ta-Tas. In 2019, this event raised over $80,000.
