“Brandon Wendell is by far the best instructor that I have come across at OTA. He simplified everything about the course so that you were not overwhelmed with information. I was never nervous about asking questions because he made the class fun and educational.”

“I really enjoyed the Forex class. Brandon Wendell was an excellent instructor. He fixed a couple of issues I had with my trading. He also explained things very well and was very receptive to questions. I enjoyed learning from his experiences. I highly recommend him to anyone thinking about taking OTA classes.”

“Brandon is an amazing instructor! He has the ability to "dumb down" the material in such a way that you can truly grasp it. His motto is "Keep it simple" and that concept works just the way he teaches. I am much more confident in my ability as a trader. Thanks for a great class and experience!”

, January 2017

“I attended the FOREX Trader course instructed by Brandon Wendell. I found Mr. Wendell to have total command of the class content. His teaching techniques were very helpful in the learning curve and his knowledge of the subject matter made it much more comprehensive than most courses of instruction I have attended. I believe the instructor made the difference in learning.”

“Brandon has a natural talent for teaching along with a photographic memory, so he can answer every question or concern with websites and information and demonstrations/examples. Simply amazing and a definite asset for OTA. A must for traders.”
