What Students Are Saying

“High energy, knowledgeable, positive, personable and showed a genuine feeling of wanting to help students become better traders.”

, April 2017

“I had a Technical Analysis class with Brandon Wendell about 7yrs ago. He was very knowledgeable, thorough and patient with regard to the redundant questions from students. I thought he was one of OTA's best instructors back then. After attending this class, I believe he's even better now! Brandon's teaching style is one of the best I've experienced at OTA. He has a real talent for simplifying the course material and presenting it in a clear and concise manner. I noticed that there weren't a lot of students asking questions, because they didn't need to. Brandon also shared many of his own personal experiences with regards to trading and the course material, which just put this class over the top. This is definitely one of the best futures classes I've ever taken at OTA!”
