“Really enjoyed my time with Jon for the futures Trader course. The Futures trader course brings out the subtle nuances related to the futures trading instrument and how the Core Strategy can be applied to the Futures instrument. Jon has an easy way to teach the course based on his years of experience trading on the floor. He is very strict on applying the Core strategy to the futures. This is good as it solidifies some of the core concepts.”

“This class has been an eye opener and a motivator for me to commit myself to the field of online trading in order to achieve my goals in generation of income and long-term wealth. The instructor has been very clear, knowledgeable, articulate and most helpful to the students according to their needs, and especially in my experience. additional staff supports have been brought in whenever necessary. The instructor has been always available to answer any and all questions the students have had. I have received hands on assistance from him whenever I was stuck on something or other.”

“My knowledge of the stock market was very limited prior to taking the Core Strategy course. Having taken the seven day course, I am fully aware of what I don't know about the market but have a much better road map to navigate my trading plan. Our instructor, Mr. Jon Arginteanu was excellent! His knowledge and experience he graciously shared with us and never made me feel like my questions were not worthy. Thanks, Jon!”
