“Eric is one of the best instructors in OTA. I've listened to his XLTs for almost a year and this was the first time to listen to him in person. He is excellent at explaining the "why" behind the concepts. I'm glad that I took the class; it helped me to ground my basic concepts and hopefully become a better trader.”
