"My interest for Trading grew more with this CTA Program and hope to pass the exam soon. This program suits very well to those who want to expand their knowledge with the Financial Markets"

Admin and Finance Officer

"Topics and discussions are not the run-of-the-mill kind that are typical in DIY stock market research and social media-based trading groups. The coverages are also not the conventional types, but are specialized to equip and make the learner ready for a profession in technical analysis. That the discussions and lectures are given by a widely-experienced and very respected market practitioner, who gives his own insights based on his years of on-hand market experience, ties the lessons, learnings and discussions all together for a better understanding of the concepts and their real-world application."

Carlos Dimacuha

"I gained additional knowledge through the interactive sessions with the lecturer."

Merlene G. De Los Santos

"Although the course does not teach you to start a technical analysis, the course is comprehensive enough to get a broad scope of what technical analysis is all about. I recommend this course to anybody who wants to see the whole picture first before learning things part by part. Super good value for money, the instructor is not only knowledgeable on the subject matter but most importantly, is a practitioner in the field."
