“Online Trading Academy was a pleasant surprise. Attending the workshop was great and once the orientation was completed I saw the potential of this learning. It is very exciting to start on this journey and it is something i will will continue to develop because i see that this could lead me to financial freedom. This FOREX class that i attended was fantastic. The class was at a good pace. The instructor (Quetin) is very knowledgeable in the topic. His delivery of the points in FOREX was great, as he compared things in everyday life that made the light bulb go off and stuck with you. I would recommend tis school to anyone trying to become financially independent. ”
