What Students Are Saying

“Jerry actually motivated me to change my trading plan. My original plan was to be a swing trader, but I will now day trade. I really appreciate the narrow focus Jerry brought to his training. I learned to use a couple analysis techniques to greatly increase the probability of winning trades as well as focus on a very narrow group of assets. Now I have to practice, practice, practice, but I have the confidence that I will consistently make successful trades.”

“Jerry Baldwin's knowledge was very apparent and he was extremely qualified to teach the material. His method of presentation was very pleasant and easy to understand, however some people in the class seemed confused the first day or so as they tried to make a direct correlation or step from the Core Strategy class they had just completed. This did come together as days progressed and Jerry demonstrated his initial consideration of all the aspects of Core Strategy before applying his methods and determining trades. His ability to connect with each student was exceptional and he dealt with everyone as a group and individual as required to bring the class along in understanding the materials of the course and his methods and techniques which supplement the curriculum. He's a great asset for OTA.”
