What Our Students are Saying

“People can actually make a living out of this just working (simply) four, five hours a day.”

Luis B. OTA student since 2014

“The profits I've made through my trading have allowed my wife and I to travel the world.”

Bill N. OTA student since 2015
The above testimonial videos were recorded on location with students who agreed to participate. Your results are not guaranteed and will be based on your effort and hard work. Any examples depicting income, earnings, or consistency of trades are not to be interpreted as common, typical, or expected. Some students interviewed have invested in extensive programs. The average person should only assume he/she will receive a valuable trading and investing education. None of our courses will provide education to become a Licensed Broker in the financial industry, or licensing in any other profession, and no course of instruction will lead to any job, employment or professional certification or credits. We believe in full transparency and a high standard of integrity, so see our full disclaimer here.

Who Should Attend

The free half-day class is designed for people who are interested to learn more about how they can generate income and grow wealth in the financial markets. This includes:

  1. Investors who are frustrated with the performance of their retirement accounts and are concerned they will outlive their money. Many lost a lot of money in the previous market crashes (2008 and 2000) and they are nervous of another one. These investors come to the class to understand what they can do to protect and grow their portfolio.

  2. Traders come to the class because they are tired of not having consistent returns. Most of them have been using technical analysis for years with little to no success. They attend the class to learn strategies designed to find high probability, low-risk income producing trades like the banks and institutions use.
    Read More
  3. People that have little to no experience trading or investing. Many of these folks worry about what losing their job would do to their lifestyle or are tired of working so hard just to make someone else rich. They attend the class to discover trading and investing strategies designed to produce a second stream of income, enabling them to live the life they choose.

If you find yourself identifying when any of these situations, the free half-day class is just for you.
