create the yearly income needed to live the life they desire. Re-creating your desired annual income ("paycheck") is possible with Online
Trading Academy's three simple rules-based strategies.
The ProActive Investor course empowers you to make financial choices that give you the greatest reward for the least risk. These choices
require a solid understanding of how financial markets really work, proper planning techniques, tactical asset allocation, and rules-based
strategies that assess real market value based on the objective laws of supply and demand. With proper education and a well-defined plan,
you can take the action needed to make your dreams a reality for today, tomorrow and during retirement.
Through a series of skill-building lessons, real-life scenarios, and interactive exercises, you will learn how to set proper goals to
help attain the standard of living you desire, the pros and cons of different asset classes, how to use price charts to identify key market
turning points and how to recognize the next big trend in advance. You will examine the use of different investment vehicles to gain tax
deferred wealth, recognize changes in economic cycles in advance, use a variety of financial calculators to assess the real health of your
wealth, identify market demographics and properly allocate the right mix of assets in your portfolio. You’ll develop a deeper understanding
of market fundamentals, market demographics, investment choices, asset allocation, fees, taxes, and estate planning.
You will also learn how to manage a total view of your wealth, including cash, stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, gold...and more.
The benefits, opportunities and pitfalls of each asset class are reviewed including the use of options and bonds to create a balanced
portfolio for consistent returns with minimal risks. The course also answers important questions about the benefits and limitations
of the 401(k) and features other retirement financial vehicles such as ETFs that can help diversify your portfolio.
Over the five days you are not only developing skills, but designing a strategy for lifetime financial security. By the end of this course
you will have created your own Wealth Management Planner that will guide your financial decisions going forward. You will depart with a
complete action plan for how and when to evaluate, rebalance and optimize your portfolio for both real capital preservation and secure growth.
