Online Trading Academy's Passion for Trading Engages Futures and Commodities Traders at Singapore Mercantile Exchange

Online Trading Academy’s Master Instructor, Don Dawson, Shares Expertise in Commodities Markets at the 2012 Singapore Mercantile Exchange

Irvine, CA, January 25, 2012 - On January 14, 2012, the Singapore Mercantile Exchange (SMX) hosted a special educational event for futures and commodities traders in the region. Online Trading Academy’s master instructor, Don Dawson, was invited to share his expertise in the commodities markets. He discussed topics such as how to enhance technical chart levels by understanding when the “smart” money was buying or selling certain commodity markets and described how understanding the historical seasonality of the commodity markets helps a trader anticipate when a market is ready for a big move.

True to Online Trading Academy’s core strategy, Dawson clearly illustrated the true nature of supply and demand in the markets and how markets often repeat patterns annually. Online Trading Academy sponsored Dawson’s trip to Singapore and the team was available to counsel students and provide free educational content.

The Singapore Mercantile Exchange (SMX) is looking forward to having Dawson return to Singapore and share his knowledge and trading skills at future events in an effort to encourage traders to engage in futures and commodities trading.

“Online Trading Academy strives to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in a market driven world,” said Eyal Shahar, CEO and Founder of Online Trading Academy. “We are pleased to have been invited to the Singapore Mercantile Exchange and have Don Dawson represent Online Trading Academy to deliver a valuable commodity trading educational experience to knowledge hungry students.”

Dawson had just finished teaching a very well received Global Futures class at Online Trading Academy’s campus in Singapore. Students commented that Dawson’s depth of experience in the commodity futures market and his passion to teach the class on high probability trading techniques was superb. He explained comprehensive, but easy market analysis and highlighted the many "traps" to be aware of in the futures market. An experienced trader, with over 25 years trading futures and commodities markets, Dawson has been teaching classes around the world for Online Trading Academy since 2008.
