“Gabe was Great!”

Irvine, CA Personal Trading Plan

“Gabe is a master trader with invaluable information and insight...His insight and explanations are unparalleled. And he gives the information to you straight up (no sugar coating) which means you get actionable information. He is enjoyable and keeps the class engaged. But most of all I know that I am leaving the class with new strategies that will enhance my trading skills to a whole new level.”

“The OTA would be great for those with some knowledge of trend, zone, and over all market technical trading skill helping being successful sooner. A novice with limite finanical resources should really think hard about signing up for OTA if you have limited resources. But, if you do sign up, learn the rules asap to put you in a better positon for success. That would give the person a leg up.”

“The program caught our interest by it's unique features wherein as long as you learn and follow the fundamental skills and strategies taught and you regularly do it (by actively trading) it provides you with very good income potential that allows you flexibility in being able to do it anywhere in the world (you just need a good internet connection) and with half the amount of time we need to put in (it will allow us to cut our current working hours to half) which means being able to live a better quality of life for as long as we want, more time with family and loved ones, more time to pursue other passions i.e. travel ”
