What Students Are Saying

“Sean is very knowledgeable... but beyond that, Sean took us to the fundamentals and helped us learn... as a result, all the participants were able to keep up with the class. Sean takes complex concepts and brings it down to our level. He also is lively and humorous.”

“Sean was knowledgeable and phenomenal in his presentation of the trading methods through OTA's Core Strategy course. He was so easy to understand in presenting knowledge, which my wife Maritza was being exposed to for the first time. In addition to presenting the material in a very understandable way, he was able to show us various trade set-ups which showed what works and what doesn't...priceless information. He is a very patient and humorous instructor.”
