This time around, there is a step-by-step process with what the OTA Instructors have identified as the key pieces to being successful in analyzing, scoring and evaluating a potential trade setup. The instructor, learning activities, reference cards, and other support documents made for a VERY effective use of my time.”

“At first I thought the class was moving too fast for me, but throughout the week of the Core Strategy Class I gained more confidence, Then by the end of the week, I could understand the Supply and Demand Zones, the stops and targets, etc. and build my own charts. My instructors have been extremely helpful and kind, plus all the support staff come around and check on each of us to make sure we are understanding each concept and helping us where needed. All the workbooks and lab programs are most helpful, and the Core Strategy laminated Reference Guide Cards I will use to check my future work.”
