“Simply an awesome experience with Jerry Baldwin. Jerry made a tremendous impact on my trading strategy and plan. Hands on was great, questions answered with great details and examples. Small class provided more time to observe better and understand Jerry's explanations. Loved and will follow Jerry's trading plan; took me to another level. Thank you, OTA.”

“Jerry Baldwin brought energy, knowledge and personal experience... The hands-on approach he presented is more effective than viewing slides... Note taking is the key, along with physically working the Platform.”

“What more can I say.... Jerry is one of the best instructors I have had. He exceeded ALL of my expectations. I am leaving here knowing that I can be a successful trader. The content was challenging for me as a newbie but Jerry was able to break down the concepts into understandable (and enjoyable) parts. He was wonderfully patient with our questions and provided a degree of enthusiasm that is rarely seen in the classroom. I believe OTA is very lucky to have Jerry as an instructor. I hope everyone will have the opportunity to take a futures class with Jerry. I look forward to my next class with him. Thank you again.”

“Jerry Baldwin used live charts to demonstrate the techniques he was talking about which really gave clarity to the subject. Jerry threw out some real nuggets that you just can't get anywhere else. This class gave me a solid foundation to trade futures successfully. ”
