Online Trading Academy makes Trading and Investing Education Available in its New Online Financial Education Center

Irvine, CA, July 27, 2010 - The students of Online Trading Academy enroll in paid education courses designed to make them better traders and investors. Now, the company is offering tools, resources, and courses for free through the recently-launched Financial Education Center.

"The investor and trader community is hungry for the kind of education and guidance they don’t get from their broker or the media," explained Tony Harkey, Vice President of Marketing. "We are not at all reluctant to provide these resources for free. Once they see our approach and the quality of the education we have to offer, their appetite for learning increases and they enroll in our on-location courses."

The Financial Education Center offers online courses in streaming video on such topics as Technical Analysis, Forex Trading, and strategies for investing with ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). A wealth of information resources such as traders’ blogs, on-demand Power Trading Radio and archived articles are just a click away. For traders and investors who prefer the written word, a number of quick-reading primers and a glossary are available.

The Financial Education Center requires a log-in and password, but registration is free. "We think this will be a powerful tool for our partners who want to introduce their clients to the concept of financial education," says Harkey. "An educated investor is more likely to be a successful investor. That’s good for all of us."
