“When you live from paycheck to paycheck, grinding out 60 to 70 hrs a week there is no forward motion. If you see yourself doing that until you retire-if you retire- and a stagnant 401K you won't feel comfortable. OTA is offering me the tools to proceed toward a comfortable retirement and a stable family. I'll never be able to thank you guys enough....”

New Jersey - North TradeStation Quickstart

“I have been trading and investing for over 20 years with at best mediocre results. The Core Strategy class showed me the pieces I'd been missing. The instructor kept the information clear, relevant, and interesting, more like a conversation than a lecture. I can already see how this information would have made a major difference in my past trading decisions. Robert McKenney”
