This not my first (puppy) rodeo and I'm happy to sy that I am learning plenty with this class. Online learning principles are being followed and I am enjoying myself immensely!

Too much talking about training techniques and not enough actual training

Too much talking , get on overload and start blocking out the talking, more actual trading techniques should be shown
