Online Trading Academy's Merlin Rothfeld Presents How to Achieve Trading Success at the 2012 New York Traders Expo

Online Trading Academy’s Master Instructor, Merlin Rothfeld, Shares Expertise in Minimizing Risk, Increasing Profit, and Utilizing an Online Trader Community

Irvine, CA, February 18, 2012 - On February 19, 2012 through February 22, 2012 the International Traders Expo in New York will be hosting workshops and special events that cater to everyone interested in becoming a successful trader. Online Trading Academy’s master instructor, Merlin Rothfeld, was invited to share his expertise in the professional approach to minimizing risk and increasing profit.

Rothfeld will be speaking during three sessions:

During the first one-hour presentation, “The Single Greatest Factor to a Trader’s Success: A Personalized Trading Plan” on February 20, 2012 from 8:00am-9:00am, Rothfeld covers one of the primary reasons that 93% of traders fail: Lack of a personal trading plan. With so much information inundating traders every day about how to trade, many are lost in the information overload, resulting in substantial losses. Rothfeld will address most of the common obstacles that prevent many traders from writing out their own plan, as well as an in-depth overview of what must be included in their plan. Attendees will receive a digital copy of a sample trading plan to get them pointed in the right direction.

Rothfeld’s second session, held on February 20, 2012 from 11:45am -12:15pm, is called “Creating Your Mastermind Trading Group,” which focuses on building your own trading group. Trading is a solitary pursuit, yet traders tend to be social by nature. They like to discuss their trades and compare notes about a stock or a strategy. Rothfeld will discuss the online community created by Online Trading Academy’s Power Trader Nation. It is a virtual town square where interactive traders share news, perspective and knowledge for mutual benefit of the Mastermind Community.

The third session will be held on February 21, 2012 from 11:30am-12:15pm. In his session “How to Identify and Capitalize on Novice Traders,” Rothfeld will break down the two key mistakes that novice traders make on almost every trade they make. He will discuss how to identify these mistakes, which allows the educated and professional trader to make much higher probability trades, while reducing risk. Online Trading Academy’s instructors teach through experiential lessons that prove to be valuable to both expert and ambitious traders.

“Merlin Rothfeld has a broad and international outlook on the trading education and we are excited to have him represent Online Trading Academy at the 2012 New York Traders Expo,” said Eyal Shahar, CEO and Founder of Online Trading Academy. “His expertise in the field will lend just the right knowledge to seasoned, interested, and aspiring traders alike.”

Rothfeld has been actively involved in the financial markets since 1996. Rothfeld gained his expertise through various backgrounds as an investor at a large financial planning firm and trading independently with his own money. He has even hosted a syndicated radio show, and became the editor of the Investnet Trading Newsletter for three years, as well as helped build the largest trading school in the U.S., Online Trading Academy.
