“I have often said that one of the unrecognized, or at the very least underappreciated, yet truly valuable benefits of enrolling in an OTA education is the exposure to and availability of more than 100 instructors who are first and foremost professional traders. Each of them takes their years of knowledge and skills and adds them like a spice or seasoning to OTA's core strategy to help every student become a more successful (i.e. profitable) trader, and that's definitely true of Jerry Baldwin's Futures class. The benefits of what I learned this week in Jerry's class are overwhelming and jaw dropping, saving me years upon years of trial and error work and, more importantly, trading losses. Thank you, Jerry and thank you, OTA!”

“This futures class opened up my eyes to a couple new strategies I wasn't familiar with. Instructor Jerry Baldwin was awesome and definitely needs to come back and teach another futures class again here at this center. I have to say if he does, I will definitely be front and center again. He is awesome. -Wayne C Jackson”
