What Students Are Saying

“Jeff is very knowledgeable and also very patient and caring for the learning of his students. I had a very lovely class experience. It's amazing how he can make you see the same things in a new light. Very clear in his explanations and uses a lot of good examples.”

“Jeff Manson was everything I was expecting from an OTA instructor. He coached us on the emotional side, how to start small but guarantee the profits to build up confidence. In sum, it was a great experience.”

, February 2018

“Jeff provided me with a platform and road map to success. Unlike most instructors, he provided specific verifiable ways to find zones on all time frames as well as ways of planning exits, anticipating on the right side of the graph and managing expectations - most valuable class I have done with OTA by far after 10 years.”
