"STA offers a wealth of information about futures trading in a structured and well organized way"
STA has been an extremely valuable learning experience for me. As a beginner in the field of futures, STA provides you everything you need to get familiar with trading futures. STA offers a wealth of information (in written and video format) about futures trading in a structured and well organized way from basic concepts for beginners to more advanced ones.
Cody is very experienced trader with deep knowledge and understanding of the market and what is more he is also a great mentor who is always willing to help aspiring traders. His support is superb which is also critical component for your progress on your learning path. Cody has integrity and strong dedication to help his students. He is extremely helpful and very responsive when you send him any questions. His feedback is very thorough and a very valuable source of information.
Through live trading classes which are very useful addition to the learning process you get familiar with the mental process of a professional trader (how to approach the market, evaluating current market conditions, looking for support & resistance areas, see the potential trading setups and their development, trade and risk management, etc). There are also daily market recaps where you can compare your trades. Cody also does weekly reviews of your charts where you get an evaluation and feedback on your performance (to see mistakes and where is room for improvement).
STA is a whole package: education + trading system + live trading class + guidance of a professional trader. Putting this all together will keep you on the right track and help you on your way to become a consistent trader.

"Suffice to say, what he has put together on STA is absolutely top-notch."
I have known Cody Hind for about a year now and I can easily say that he is the most helpful person I've ever met in the trading industry. Originally I got in touch with Cody due to his Forex work but in more recent months our discussions have been almost entirely focused on futures due to his Samurai Trading Academy project.
Even though I've been trading for nearly 15 years now in all markets (FX, commodities, bonds, etc), the working relationship I have with Cody has been more fruitful than any other. His ideas in Forex helped me to take some of my old strategies to another level, so when he offered to share some of his futures methods with me I was very enthusiastic. Suffice to say, what he has put together on STA is absolutely top-notch. I've never seen such a comprehensive program with written material, videos, and live training of this quality. At the same time, Cody's desire for students to succeed is unmatched and he is always willing to help out.
If you are a new trader or just an "old dog" trader looking to pick up a few tricks and improve your results, I would highly recommend Cody's STA training program. I have no doubt that you will not find the kind of educational value you will receive from Samurai Trading Academy anywhere else.

The course in STA is very well presented with lots of chart examples, and structured in a incremental steps so that newbies will find it easy to understand. The live training class is very useful because there are many things that can only be explained in a live market. And, on top of that Cody provides weekly trade reviews on my trades. I find that the most useful. It's great to get feedback on mistakes/improvement from an experienced trader, it greatly reduces my learning curve. I can see that Cody really puts a lot of effort into helping other traders succeed. When you put all of it together, STA is probably the best course out there.

"STA was a breath of fresh air because the focus was on learning to read the market and how price moves."
This program is the best thing I've found in my three years learning the markets. Most of what I've tried was all based on indicators but there were too many conflicting signals and it got confusing try to read everything at once and make decisions. STA was a breath of fresh air because the focus was on learning to read the market and how price moves. Momentum, the structure of the market... these are the things that are truly important! I am happy to say that now I find making trading decisions easier than ever and my results have rapidly improved.
