What Students Are Saying

“Brandon Wendell was an excellent instructor. He was very patient and took time to answer everyone's questions. He not only went over the material in the course handbook but also discussed his personal trading strategies, techniques and daily trading routines. Using his personal techniques he demonstrated to the class how to make real money trading. I hope I have the opportunity to take another trading class from Brandon in the future. Thank You.”

“Brandon was a wonderful instructor. He answered all of my questions in depth and made sure that everyone had a fair chance to learn how to trade and become successful. I hope to retake the class with Brandon again in the future to revisit strategies after I have had time to practice in the future.”

“Brandon's depth of experience and knowledge of futures made learning this difficult topic both understandable and enjoyable. I would recommend that others choose him as an instructor for futures if at all possible!”

“Brandon was very open to demonstrate time and time again of the successful patterns for a successful trade and frankly discussed weak trades as well and the reasons. He ensured we could clearly see the examples of identifying the indicators of the shift in market and how to take advantage of them. Seattle Online Trading Academy is just outstanding in care for the students! A very family and friend oriented place to train, visit and I would expect - work too!”
