“I went into this course knowing I'm dyslexic. Stress and being tired makes it worse. I'm best in the morning, and numbers I only reverse seldom, but it happens. After attending, with Scott as my instructor teaching, this system changed my life that week. I found with Scott's help, as he took the extra time when I needed to be sure I had no questions, at the end of the week trading live I found I could do this; just follow the plan it happens. I was very successful. I have more courses to take but I know I will always be able to make any amount of money I want. Thank You O.T.A, Ric Bourn”
