“Brandon shared considerable information and trading techniques that I have not received in my previous classes. Class moves fast but we covered a lot of information. All instructors I have had have been great, but Brandon is a notch above most others. I read his weekly articles and looked forward to attending one of his classes. He did not disappoint me.”
