I have learned to appreciate all of the instructors at OTA

Near the end of a long journey of trial and error, classes, a little frustration, money losses/wins, time, hopes and dreams, misunderstandings, thinking you know but don’t, greed, forcing/chasing trades….oops…(I had to take a moment to laugh at myself), insecurities and doubts, triumphs (without skills), procrastination, boredom, anticipation, finally realizing my job was a part of a delay in my learning skills. I had to eat so stuck in a hard place, which is not to say that someone else can’t do trading and have a job. I am a student, learning and the gray areas are becoming fewer, and colored (understanding is higher). AMEN, AMEN, AMEN. I have learned to appreciate all of the instructors at OTA, and learned from each and every one of them. Of course there are some that you click with more than others, their teaching, personality, pace, explanation of expressing the materials..and patience. I’m not a tech person, OTA will help in this area. You must do what you must do to reach your goals, as a professional trader. Trading is a forever learning experience, and reward as you become a professional trader. I thank ALLAH(god), for OTA. They are really trying hard to help students fulfill our financial dreams.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants proper financial education

Very impressed by my instructor’s knowledge as well as his approach and patience with our class. He never failed to cover information that needed to be retraced and always made you think as to figure out the answer to help you learn. The overall atmosphere in the entire office is a very pleasant environment to learn in. Excellent staff, always ready to aid you in whatever need may present itself. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants proper financial education to better help themselves.

the learning never ends

My experience with the Atlanta OTA has been incredible. I have learned how to take control of my retirement accounts, and the learning never ends. I also discovered a lot about myself during my education, and am making changes in my personal life as a result of my experiences. Both the staff and the students seem like family to each other, everyone is warm and open, and willing to share or assist you. We are taught how to change the way we approach our finances and trading – something that the big banks and financial institutions will not do. You owe it to yourself to check it out – the younger you are, the better off you’ll be!

I get absolute truthful answers to my questions, “unadorned” with any hidden agenda

I have interviewed countless CPAs, CFPs, financial advisers, attorneys, estate planners… whatever, and it seems they all have the perfect solution to my problem. And what a coincidence! It just happens to be what they are selling… life insurance, annuities, social security adjustment… whatever. OTA is also selling something. They want me to take more classes. (Okay. They are a for profit business after all). But along the way I get absolute truthful answers to my questions, “unadorned” with any hidden agenda. And, wonderfully (and unlike ANYONE else), they have NO FEAR of the market or of working its subtleties.
OTA folks are not your Buy and Hold, “Don’t worry, your tanking stock is sure to come back… some day” folks. If something’s not working out pretty quickly, they are out of it. Plus, they will trade ANYTHING… Stocks, Bonds, Euro, Gold, ETFs, Soybeans, not to mention Diagonal Bear Put Spreads on futures on the S&P 500, etc., etc. Just try convincing your rep at Morgan Stanley, or Schwab, or Wells Fargo Advisors to do that! Are they expensive? Well, let’s just say they are not cheap. However, if you take all of what they have to offer, you’ll get what amounts to an entire college education over the course of only about six weeks and for the price of about one year’s tuition at a decent university (and without having to waste your time taking all those annoying and non-productive classes on the History of the Mesopotamian Bot Fly either). And don’t forget – like the bumper sticker says, “If you think education is expensive – try ignorance!”

OTA Atlanta has far exceeded my expectations!

OTA Atlanta has far exceeded my expectations! I came to take my trading to a higher level. And the trading has improved greatly. But I am most excited about learning more and more the intricacies of the investment/financial world. The curriculum is robust, made to accelerate learning; the instructors are knowledgeable, professional and dedicated to the student. I am very fortunate to have Adam Matisko as my coach. Adam is optimistic, cheerful, bullish and it is contagious. A great listener, he presented me with what OTA had to offer me and worked diligently to define several paths I could take to start my learning journey. I look forward to every class for I am always greeted by a friendly, knowledgeable staff that cares and energizes me. I recommend this school to everyone who wants to learn to trade successfully and less stressfully.

OTA is the real deal

OTA is the real deal, Plain and simple. Apply the rules taught by OTA, spread your wings and fly high as a professional trader. The highest compliment is gratitude, and I am grateful to OTA for providing a high level of financial education.
