“I joined OTA about 18 months ago and have been impressed with the amount of support material available to me. This is my second Futures class and I could not be more satisfied with the instructor, Brandon Wendell. His overall knowledge of the markets is impressive, but what I found to be more useful was his ability to relate the material to our own personal goals. I am excited about putting his techniques to practical use and feel confident that I will be successful. Thank you!”
