“Maxwell Mubeezi the program has helped me realize that trading isn't as complicated as i had initially thought to a point where i feel i consider myself a trader. i learned that the market is very predictable and will most likely react how we anticipate it to given we stick to the rules/steps as taught in class.”

“Before the class my understanding of the stock market was what you hear from the masses; buy low sell high. Where is low? 2? 3? 5yrs ago? So trade hope and pray. Now with what I was taught the light is shining from here on out. Jose Argueta”

Los Angeles - Woodland Hills, CA Core Strategy Class

“ I have had information overload as I expected. Following class, I need to practice. I hope I can find help in identifying the why of my mistakes. The instructor had great rapport with the students and genuinely interested in helping each of us. I felt that the questions I had, had been explained previously and, therefore, was embarrassed to ask. I know Chris would have quickly answered however.”

“Rick Wright is student needs oriented, humorous, and self-effacing at all times. With this in mind, he is still able to maintain classroom order and the syllabus schedule. Moreover, he goes far beyond the syllabus by adding extras (odds enhancers) such as exponential moving averages (20 and 50 day) to confirm for sure market turning points. He also explained the multiple features of the Forex market that relate to the equity, equity options, and futures markets. ”

“This was my first exposure to trading and the markets, so the information was overwhelming in the beginning. However, this beginner is grateful for the instructor walking us through the course manual and offering personal illustrations in explaining challenging steps in the trading process. I am more comfortable now about what I have learned and am eager to continue improving my understanding and skills.”

“I learned of Online Trading Academy with a flyer I received in the mail. Free perked my interest. I thought I would see if it was worth investing in. I went to the first presentation of what the school was about. Another session was available if I was interested. I did and I signed up. I took my first class in Futures. At first I was completely lost because I had no knowledge of any sort of trading. Through the teachings of our instructor Chris, I started to understand the fundamentals of trading. I am a novice in trades, but I takes the education of this class and confidence that I will get better. Ileen Kreps”
