What Students Are Saying

“Jeff Manson's knowledge and presentation of the materials was thorough and logical. But beyond that, he shared so many insights and nuances he has observed from his trading experience that it felt like an advanced knowledge course, far beyond the scope of the printed materials that was being offered. He wants to make sure everyone "Gets It". Jeff's abundance of spirit is ever-present in his presentation. I look forward to taking another class with Jeff. He is stellar!”

“Jeff Mason was exciting to listen to. He was very patient and kept the class enthused, gave us plenty of information and went beyond the curriculum showing us real time practical ways of implementing strategy and odds enhancers along with an inside look at actual trading. I feel confident and fortunate to have had Jeff as the instructor.”

“I found out about OTA after spending over a year in the markets. I learned more in my first 3 days here than I did in all my time previously. Amazing instructor. Very knowledgeable. He was able to prove his skill by actually applying his info directly to the markets. Also, he took time during breaks to speak to students individually as well.”

“Jeff was great. He went through the text as required but he also gave us some insights that he has experienced while trading. Mostly chart patterns, nuances in the futures market that give him a better than average chance that price will move in a certain direction given the juxtapositions of certain variables, like related markets, time of day, news items and the like. I enjoyed Jeff's class a lot and would like to take a Futures class with him at a later date.”
