What Students Are Saying

“Jerry Baldwin was a very engaging instructor who went through very practical application during trading hours. These exercises were very helpful in putting strategies together in a real-time scenario.”

“Learning is enjoyable when the instructor is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Jerry did a fantastic job when it came to making sure no student was left behind, and the live market examples he used reinforced the principles and strategies taught. I can say, confidently, that I've successfully added a few more useful tools to my trading tool belt.”

“Instructor, Jerry Baldwin, skillfully shares his wealth of knowledge during focused application throughout the week - allowing a range of students to each make progress - in an atmosphere of graciousness and fun!”

“I didn't have any knowledge or experience with Futures before taking this class. The class included seasoned veterans as well as other students like myself with limited or no experience. Our instructor, Jerry Baldwin did an excellent job of teaching to all levels and I did not feel like I was being left behind. By halfway through the 3rd day I was able to trade futures on my own. Jerry made the learning experience fun and I would certainly welcome the opportunity to take another one of Jerry's classes.”

“Jerry does a great job at helping you understand the Futures market and how to make money.”

“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.”
