“Scott was an incredible instructor. He presented like a professor of the business. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge, ability to convey the information, and his honesty. I had zero trading experience prior to OTA. This program was the perfect introduction to trading terminology and approach. I would highly recommend OTA. Thank you for helping me get one step closer to financial freedom.”
