“Clinton did a very fine job in presenting the material and answering all questions.”

Atlanta, GA Platform Immersion Part 1

“I thought I had been an investor (and a trader) for 17 years, prior to becoming aware of OTA and taking the core strategy course. Now I realize I was gambling with my savings and retirement accounts. Through the course I am actually developing investing and trading skills for the first time. The instructors have opened my eyes and shown me that there are solid methods to trading that one can learn and master. They have done it before me. I am grateful that OTA has found me through direct mail to my home. I was not looking and was not aware that these skills are available to the average person. I had incorrectly assumed that one gains these skills only by becoming a stock broker or an investment banker. Thank you for finding me and giving me the opportunity to learn to grow my savings & retirement accounts. Thank you also for the opportunity to learn to become an independent earner. Our society is less of a community now and I can not count on it to support me during my retirement and old age. Since OTA has been around for almost 20 years, I wish I knew about it earlier. I am sure it would have helped me to get through 2001 and 2008 recessions in one piece! With best regards, Majid Farmanfarmaian”

San Jose, CA Pro Trader Class

“The information is presented in an organized and interesting way. Learning a great deal and looking forward to making trades.”

Atlanta, GA Platform Immersion Part 1

“OTA has, far and away, met my expectations for introducing me to the world of trading. From the minute I walked onto the campus I could tell it was a first class operation and they haven't let me down. While, obviously, you're responsible for taking advantage of the tools they provide for preparing for the classes, the staff, coaches, and instructors are always ready, willing, and able to help you achieve the results you're looking for. Mike Caudell”

Atlanta, GA Pro Trader Class

“The course has a vast of information to be absorbed and learned ( especially for me who does not have any background in financials and works in a totally different profession ) it was overwhelming first 2 days . I took it as a personal challenge to pursue and finish the course and so grateful that I did otherwise I would have lost a golden opportunity to get the best education in the industry. Nowhere I will find the best instructor, Tillie Allison and the best resources available except at OTA.”

Kansas City Pro Trader Class

“Given that I'll be taking several classes, I'll save my testimonial til I get more classes, and put this education to work! ”

Atlanta, GA Pro Trader Class

“The information was enlightening as to how we have not been informed on how to properly manage our own money for long term sustainability. The eagerness from the staff to assist and the amount of support provided for new learners is impressive. The committment to success is evident when the individual puts forth the effort to learn and work.”

The class was taught by Scott who is a professional trader and shared information his first hand knowledge of what it takes and how to avoid the many mistakes and pitfalls of the novice trader. Thanks! Jesse”

Long Island, NY Pro Trader Class

“Great Class. The structure and layout of the curriculum was laid out in a way that flowed really well. I liked how the reinforced important topics and points throughout the class. I would highly recommend this course. They took a complex industry and simplified it down into concepts that were very easy to understand for a person not involved in the trading industry. -Anthony ”
