Everything about OTA is great. The staff, counsellor and instructors are amazing. They truly care about your education and want to see you succeed. They will also keep working with you until you fully understand the information, whether by appointment or by email, they always make themselves available. This is a great place to learn and grow. A lot of free courses and materials out there online don’t teach you everything that you need to know. They give you small amounts of information and tools that you can use and that’s it!!!! You have no one to help or guide you. When you have a question, it takes them days to months to reply back. Even then you get a single sentence response, which isn’t helpful. This is not a good thing because not having the knowledge and support can be a very EXPENSIVE learning curve. OTA really helps you by giving you a full education and all of the answers. A lot of people are turned off because of the price and that’s understandable, but knowledge and an education isn’t free, I don’t care what you’re trying to learn. You can try taking an art or wine tasting class and that costs. The length of time it’ll take you to fully learn the markets and the psychological aspect of the markets, you could have cut that in half by enrolling. You’ll learn while making money and hopefully paying off the courses with your profits. And lastly, they don’t give you this false idea that you’ll become a millionaire over night. They explain to you the risks and teach you how to manage and become more responsible with trading and your finances.
The problem with online courses in general is that one does not have the community to provide the learning experience. This is not only completely solved by OTA, but one learns so much of the reason “why” for doing each thing. There are some things in life where it is completely necessary to know the “whys” as well as the “hows” and “whats,” trading is one of those things. Oh, and by the way, many of the “whys” that you learn at OTA are things not available to most others, except for professionals such as floor traders. One can search all day on the web, and it is not found.

Instructor clearly, precisely, and methodically broke-down all subject matters and areas of interest, down to the minute details to CLEARLY UNDERSTANDABLE TERMS! Many times (in Roger’s instruction and teaching) he answered a question before I can/could ask it! Good job, Roger!

Before coming to this course I had listened to many radio and TV programs on the stock market, but had only a vague idea of how the whole industry works. I now have an excellent working knowledge of the macro-economic picture, as well as how individual traders work, and now have a solid foundation from which to start my new trading career. The course experience surpassed my expectations and was a very positive event that will no doubt become life changing for my family and I.
