“I'm a FOREX trader and love the ability to learn a new tool and all the new features the instructor taught me today about trading Futures that I did not know. ”

“I took the Pro Trader class a few weeks ago with zero background in trading; it was a great experience and I learned a lot but it was also overwhelming. The Platform Immersion class focuses on learning how to drive TradeStation, and at the same time reinforces OTA's core strategy. Tre did a great job of answering questions and guiding us to a greater level of competence in trading. I'm glad I took this class!”
