“Craig's method of teaching this course is very hands on and efficient. I learned a lot from him. I really appreciate his "extra ideas" and tips. He is very much in the details of the trade, and this is important for a new trader. Teaches you to think and look at all possibilities when making a chart analysis and trading. Lots of additional information too that wasn't contained in the book. Very satisfied. This will definitively help me in my trading.”
