“Jerry did a great job! He always maintained a positive and professional demeanor throughout the class. Proved to have sufficient knowledge on the content (Futures) and patience to teach the concepts and his strategies. Jerry provided excellent content and really took the time to explain his methods to the class and individually as well. He really brought out "next level" analysis and strategies that I look forward to implementing in my plan!”

“My name is David Cope and this is my first futures class. Jerry Baldwin is an exceptional instructor who really develops his students. Because of the knowledge Jerry has to convey, he realized great wins all five days of the class and therein gave tremendous confidence that the OTA model works. Because of work distractions I was not able to attend every hour of class. I am already planning to attend the next futures class being taught by Jerry in the DFW location.”

“I started trading Futures the early part of this year and haven't been successful. I decided to sign up for the Futures course with OTA. I read many great comments about Jerry Baldwin, and decided I should take his class. WOW! All I can say is WOW! Such a truly amazing instructor. He is extremely patient, vibrant, and knowledgeable. His trading style is remarkable and has given me something very practical to work from. I now see the opportunities that I could have in Futures Trading and am excited to get going on my own. I would recommend Jerry to everyone starting out in Futures or even those who have experience. It would be great to have him back in Dallas regularly as many of his former students would love to take his class again :) It would be perfect to have him run a Futures class strictly for retakes. Again, an extreme delight to learn from Jerry!!! Thank you for sharing your expertise in such a fun and lively manner.”
