What Students Are Saying

“Core Strategy was a great class but in my experience the instructor made the huge difference. Cherian explained the whole course clearly and simply. He understood the fact that we are new to all this and took us step by step to increase our understanding.”

“I like how enthusiastic the instructor was, and looks like a genuine feeling he has for his experience and work as a trader. I like how, from the small pieces you end up at last getting a whole pic of everything you have been doing prior days. All the pieces come together for real.”

“I came with some doubts about OTA's "walk the talk" ability post the Market Timing workshop: this Core Strategy course just crystal-cleared out any doubt in my mind, and in contrary gave lots of hope for future success, and especially a whole life of freedom & fun., Hence and on behalf of my family, a huge Thank You, OTA! A special Thanks to instructor Cherian for all his competence, patience and relentless energy put in getting us all to the next level. Also, a big Thanks to education counselor Sibi, for helping me accelerate attending all classes that I selected, enabling me to start trading at the earliest and realize my dreams.”
