“Jon was hard-working, organized, patient, thoughtful, available and deeply knowledgeable about trading. As we worked through the syllabus, he got me trading on the platform. He took me from being a reader about trading to being a doer about trading. He motivated me onto a steep learning curve which gave me a success-experience. I now have the confidence and self-belief that I can take my trading to a higher level and be a successful trader.”
