What Students Are Saying

“What I liked best: Brandon's experience and his real world knowledge. I felt like he really showed us what works and doesn't work. I especially like his insight to novice trader behavior and how to identify it so he can demonstrate how not to make the same mistakes.”

“The Futures instructor took the time to address all questions and readily provided anecdOnline Trading Academyl applications. Additionally, he eagerly readdressed already-covered material; there was no such thing as a dumb question.”

“Brandon's style is terrific. He answers every question. He augments the Online Trading Academy material in a way that makes it more applicable to the real world vs. the "text book." It is so helpful to see how a successful trader applies the Online Trading Academy material to the actual markets. Will watch this session multiple times to incorporate several additional concrete ideas into my trade plan. Don't let this feedback go to Brandon's head. Thanks.”
