“Gabe was Great!”

“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.”
