Principal and consultant for five public companies, his expertise is an essential ingredient in Online Trading Academy's
continued growth. Recognized by Inc. Magazine as the builder of two successful public companies, he twice became a finalist in
the Orange County (California, USA) Entrepreneur of the Year contest sponsored by the magazine.
With its Headquarters in Irvine, California, Online Trading Academy began franchising operations to meet public demand to
provide more locations for its traders education courses. Initially, Dallas, USA will be opened in March along with a centre in
Dubai, UAE. Online Trading Academy will be aggressively replicating and expanding its successful business model to 100 cities
worldwide over the next four years. This expansion is needed to meet the burgeoning growth of active investors and traders
desiring to take control of their assets by learning the skills of Direct Access Trading.
Under the tutelage of a team of professional traders as instructors, this highly motivated group of student/traders engages
the market with live real-time trading accounts using Online Trading Academy's capital. Franchisees will provide their local
financial community this remarkable approach to trader education that has become the company's signature. All locations will
begin to sponsor events such as free half-day classes as well as monthly, daily and weekend classes in stock,
currency, options index and futures trading.
According to Bear Stearns & Company, Inc., in their August 2004 Report, there is a core group of active individual
'Semi-Pro' traders. The report indicates that 'These customers trade more than 25 times per day' and account for '78% of daily
online trades and 32% of daily combined NYSE and NASDAQ share volume.' While there are no statistics available as yet for other
markets such as currencies, options and futures, Bear Stearns comments that 'there is a heightened interest from semi-pro traders
in auto execution functionality, advanced analytics, connectivity to non-U.S. markets, risk-management tools, and listed trading'.
Online Trading Academy believes that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Bahram Khadavi, Owner and Managing Director of Online Trading Academy Dubai is the first franchisee bringing this innovative
electronic trading education concept into the very promising Middle-East Market.
Khadavi said, "Trading has fast become a universal concept. In all countries, we seem to be moving closer and closer to
Direct Access Trading and 'global' markets from home-based broad-band computers through the internet. I believe that our newly
established Online Trading Academy location in Dubai evidences our commitment to that kind of forward-thinking."
