“This options class was excellent. The class curriculum is much improved since I first took the class in 2010. The ability for the student to have actual hands on use of the computer in entering the option trades is a big +. With options trading one has to apply the knowledge with actual practice in the simulator to really grasp the concepts taught in the class to really be a successful trader. This class is a great first step in building a foundation in trading options successfully.”

“The OTA options course is not just an academic presentation, it gives the student step-by-step goals that build confidence. Tremendous improvement in course structure. OTA has removed the "Voo-Do" from option trades. The course now has an easy to follow mechanical approach to finding a candidate; selecting a strategy; narrowing down the call/put strikes; and inputting staged orders.”
