Online Trading Academy Awards Franchise in Philadelphia

New Center Will Open Where the Stock Exchange Was Founded in the United States (in 1790)

Irvine, CA, March 25, 2009 – Online Trading Academy is proud to announce an agreement with a new franchise location in the city where the first U.S. stock exchange was founded - Philadelphia. The Philadelphia location has been awarded to husband & wife team, Steven Alexeev and Leila Wilson, and Konstantin Povov (new owner of another Online Trading Academy franchise, Miami). Online Trading Academy Philadelphia is set to open in Summer 2009.

Steven Alexeev and Leila Wilson first became aware of Online Trading Academy through their friend Konstantin Povov (who is part owner of this Philadelphia franchise). Alexeev is a trader and has taken classes at Online Trading Academy New York. Alexeev and Wilson own a medical billing business in Brooklyn and employ more than 50 people through that business. They are very experienced entrepreneurs and are passionate about how the Online Trading Academy education helps people and are looking forward to offering this opportunity to the people of Philadelphia.

“We are thrilled to award a franchise location in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Steven Alexeev, Leila Wilson and Konstantin Povov,” said Eyal Shahar, President of Online Trading Academy. “For anyone who lives in the Philadelphia area and is currently a trader or wants to become one, this is the perfect opportunity to learn the skills necessary to become a successful trader.”

The Philadelphia franchise joins a rapidly growing list of locations worldwide for the leader in financial education. Since 1997 Online Trading Academy has been teaching traders by using the same tools, techniques and analysis that pros use in the modern marketplace. Online Trading Academy believes that the best way for students to learn is by actually working in a “hands-on” real trading environment. Students are provided “live trading accounts” to practice trading and Online Trading Academy covers all their commissions and losses. Innovations like this along with fully reimbursed student tuitions in the form of discounted commissions from affiliated brokers and a supportive trading community have made Online Trading Academy the pioneering institution in the field of financial education.
