What Students Are Saying

“Brandon has a real gift in not only his expert knowledge, but also in relating it to you in a fun and interesting way. The class was actually fun to attend.”

, November 2017

“The class was amazing. Brandon Wendell was a truly amazing instructor. He brought much to the class from his own experience, things proven to work for him trading. Excellent communicator. If asked a question he was able to rephrase and give examples to clarify the concept. Great sense of humor which is appreciated on long days but most importantly kept the class on track as well.”

“Brandon is a powerful teacher who made the Futures Trader class understandable, logical and enjoyable. As a new trader it is all so overwhelming, but Brandon's mixture of humor and his long tenured experience was very helpful in getting me on the right path for success - with the essential information and how to use it. Thanks Brandon!!”

“Brandon has been wonderful! He is a very laid back instructor and knows his stuff. He is easy to understand and follow. He shows the most simplified version in his teaching and makes it seem easy. Can't wait to put his tactics into place once I get home!”

“Brandon Wendell is a ROCK STAR! He is fun, and all I spoke with liked his approach. Because of him, I feel so much more confident in myself. I know when to not take trades. When I do take a trade, I can be reasonably assured as to the high probability level of success.”

“Brandon presented a mountain of information in small portions and at a rate that helped me retain and understand the concepts. A great class, very helpful.”
