What Students Are Saying
“Steve's enthusiasm and passion for trading and teaching was so evident throughout the week. He was patient yet continually pushed us beyond our comfort zones to higher learning. He was approachable and helpful, willing to answer any question, big or small. I appreciate the time he took away from his family to teach us this valuable tool.”
“The core strategy course that I was able to attend was phenomenal. The instructor, Stephen, did a great job executing the strategies that are at the core of OTA’s Success. I am excited and ready for the following course so that I can improve and refine my trading knowledge even more. Thank you for making this a possibility.”
“I really enjoyed Steve's presentations. He explains concepts thoroughly, doesn't go too fast, and answers students' questions well. His humor and wit make it lively and interesting. At the same time, he makes sure students grasp the concepts. Steve walks through the class to confirm problems are resolved - computer misfires as well as individual student's understanding.”
