Online Trading Academy Illustrated Best Practices for Trading and Investing for 2014 in New What’s Hot, What’s Not Infographic

Global Trading and Investing Academy Does Not Leave Investors and Traders Out in the Cold with a New Infographic that Gauges Hot Money Management Moves for 2014

Irvine, CA, January 6, 2014 - Online Trading Academy launched a new infographic illustrating projections of the hot and cold of investing and trading for 2014. Instructors and general managers from the global trading and investing academy provided their 2014 forecasts to help the everyday investor make wiser financial decisions in the New Year.

At the top of hot money making decisions for 2014, the infographic showed shorting and hedging as smart moves for trading. Experts from Online Trading Academy agreed that smart individual investors are learning to invest like the professionals by playing both sides of the market and allowing volatility to work to their benefit. Emerging markets was a hot topic in 2013, but in 2014 experts believe “Frontier” markets such as Bahrain, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, and Lebanon will be high-risk markets. Online Trading Academy cautions traders to exercise due diligence before they jump into these Frontier markets. Options, Walkable homes and apartments, futures and metals, and investing education round out the “What’s Hot” section of the infographic. Savvy investors have made moves to get educated about how the market works to help provide relief from the emotional roller coaster of the shifting markets.

Online Trading Academy explored why the “buy and hold” method isn’t working, fading financial confidence, U.S. Equities, short sales, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), and “Bubble” Stocks with a “What’s Not” section of the infographic. The rise in the U.S. equities markets makes the economy look healthier than it is, with the market up 150 percent off its recession lows. The infographic explained that the average consumer has not been made wealthier by the stock market boom and unemployment is still high. Shaky consumer confidence is another factor that will create market turbulence throughout 2014. Online Trading Academy warns that stocks like Google, Apple, and social media companies, as well as mutual funds investing in these stocks, may or may not burst in 2014, but the prices are definitely inflated. Today may not be the best time to take an initial position, as many “retail” investors are doing.

“We wanted to provide our global network of everyday and professional investors and traders unconventional yet useful insight into 2014 investing,” said Eyal Shahar, Founder & President of Online Trading Academy. “You hear, read, and watch so many projections for the year ahead in finances. Some of these projections are helpful, but so much is hype. It’s important for our network of traders and investors to remember that so much of investing, trading, and general money management is about supply and demand and not necessarily about the performance of a company or the next Emerging market.”
