What Students Are Saying

“Mr. Bill Henner is very intelligent, experienced, and an extremely effective instructor. Mr. Henner presented outside textbook information to amplify the learning experience. Ample allowed time with online direct trading time was a major plus to acquire the skills of identifying Demand and Supply levels, and targeting entries and exits.”

“It was a pleasure to learn about Futures trading from Bill Henner. He punctuated the course materials with many nuggets of knowledge and experience from the real experience of Futures trading. I look forward to follow his XLTs and will try to take his course again when he comes back.”

“Taking the futures class with Bill Henner gave me more confidence in trading. He gave so many great tips and recommendations and even better, had taught us the more important things to look for in a trade, thus making things way simpler than it sometimes may feel. His tip on making everything simple is something I really have taken out from his class: Not overcomplicating or overthinking or overanalyzing too many things. He is a great instructor and I am so fortunate to have taken this class with him. ”
