Investors Learn to Think Like Traders with New Professional-Level Education
Online Trading Academy launches “ProActive Investor” in 33 global locations
Irvine, CA, April 26, 2010 - Investors who want to generate income and manage wealth have a
new option for acquiring needed skills: the ProActive Investor series taught by Online Trading Academy via their
global network of financial education centers. On-location courses are enrolling immediately at 33 centers in the U.S. and abroad.
“We found that many of our students want to learn a professional approach to better manage their big bucket of long
term retirement assets,” explains Eyal Shahar, President of Online Trading Academy. “This is the solution: a
learning track taught by professional and expert traders, but geared to the individual investor.”
The courses focus on the “big bucket” of family wealth that many individuals turn over to advisors, or sock away in a mutual
fund, at the same time they are actively trading a “small bucket” of discretionary funds. “It’s great to make a short-term profit
in the markets,” says Shahar, “but the big bucket is where you can make a real difference in your quality of life, both now and
in the future. At the same time, many of the strategies used by funds and professional advisors are inherently risky. We teach
you how to reduce your risk while maximizing your potential.”
The core ProActive Investor course is a five-day program taught at each of Online Trading Academy’s locations; the organization
is also offering a half day “ProActive Investor Workshop” at no charge for investors who want to familiarize themselves with the
program. Enrollment information is available at www.tradingacademy.com. The follow-on ProActive Investor XLT course, conducted
entirely over the Internet, allows investors to share the desktop of a master trader in real time and get trading advice and
With 33 educational centers from Denver to Dubai, Online Trading Academy has trained nearly 18,000 students in a “learn
by doing” method where they use professional workstations and make and analyze traders under the supervision of a master
trader. The organization got its start as the largest trading floor in the Western United States in the 1990s and evolved
into a training institute.
