“Great instructor! Jerry did a great job - was very informative, friendly, and really opened my eyes to the practical side of how this works. Jerry was extremely helpful and effective at presenting the material in an easy to understand way. Live trading was key to getting an understanding of the concepts and deal with natural emotions of trading (big confidence booster). Community and discussion from fellow students is a huge advantage for each class.”
