What Students Are Saying

“I have been using, and attended, various "online" options classes over the past couple of decades. This one finally made it clear what and how to use the greeks to obtain the results you are looking for. Now I believe I actually understand options and look forward to the extended learning track (XLT), now that I have a firm base from which to fly.”

“In being pretty new in this whole world of Options (and trading in general), I very much appreciate how smooth it was for me, in just 6 days, to get introduced to such a complex world of trading derivatives. Obviously, the quality of learning content by OTA, the consistency in using their Core Strategy, as well as the evident competency of the instructor helped tremendously (special mention and Thanks to outstanding Bachir Chaaya!)”

“The class was great. The material was well presented and informative, but it wasn't dry or dull. The instructor was knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions that arose. We covered a great deal of information in the time allotted, but it was not overwhelming. I feel certain that I learned a great deal this week.”
