BlackBox Bootcamp Class
New Member Class Testimonial:
I was so excited after attending the boot camp that I signed up for a 2nd boot camp training this week. Attending the boot camp is a must for all members, new and old, in mastering the BlackBox system as it evolves for its members. The training helped me to better navigate the BlackBox platform, and learn basic trading terminology, trading basics, best practices, risk management and position sizing to avoid blowing up your account. I've been a member for just over 2 months and my account has grown 125% and I look forward to trading with the Blackbox family every day. Thank you, BlackBox!
