Online Trading Academy Teaches Successful Trading Skills to Novice and Accomplished Investors Alike

Award Winning Trading School Provides Tools and Techniques for Successful Individual Trading, Putting Financial Control in Consumer’s Hands

Irvine, CA, May 15, 2007 – As average citizens become more and more aware of stock market volatility, many are taking control of their own investments and asset management. In order to help investors understand how to profit in any market condition, Online Trading Academy has created a complete education solution by offering professional live on-site trading courses to teach people what they need know to manage their assets on their own.

“The typical trader is more independent than ever before,” said Eyal Shahar, President and CEO of Online Trading Academy. “Online Trading Academy has recognized the desire for financial independence and essentially eliminated the middle man – putting financial control back into the hands of the individual by teaching the skills and methodologies used to competitively trade on a daily basis.”

Engaging everyone from experienced traders and active investors to eager novices alike, Online Trading Academy students learn how to utilize a Direct Access Trading platform, how to manage risk, and how to leverage technical analysis tools to recognize and act on repeatable patterns. Online Trading Academy’s curriculum offers an individual knowledge of short-term trading for cash flow as compared to long-term asset building. As the world’s only trading school that allows student traders to trade “live”, in the market using the academy’s capital, Online Trading Academy provides its students the knowledge, discipline and control over their order executions that professional traders have learned through years of experience.

By utilizing electronic Direct Access Trading platforms for trading Stocks, Options, Futures (Eminis & Commodities) and Currencies, specialized instructors and mentors guide students through a hands-on, learn by doing, seven-day training experience that continues after the class with ongoing online and personal support. This supportive community of traders ultimately equalizes the playing field between the student and the skilled industry pros on the contra side of their trades.

Online Trading Academy is the only financial education institution that is committed to teaching students to learn to trade like a pro without risking their own money or the cost of commissions. Tuition for all courses can be fully reimbursed if students choose to open an account with an affiliated Broker/Dealer, Futures Clearing Merchant or Currency Dealer.

Online Trading Academy strongly believes in personal “hands-on” learning, so classrooms are deliberately kept to a maximum of 25 students per session and typically sell out very quickly because of such limited seating.

With more than a dozen educational facilities located around the globe, Online Trading Academy is positioned to meet the worldwide demand for individuals wanting to take control of their own finances. Online Trading Academy can teach students anywhere to learn to trade … even in a down market.
