Online Trading Academy Education Officer Says: Do as Wall Street Does, Not as They Say

Sam Seiden, Chief Education Officer for the Global Financial Education Academy, Encourages Investors to Take Action and Focus on Building a Plan

Irvine, CA, August 24, 2015 - Despite most people being concerned with the recent market downturn, major Wall Street publications have urged the average investor to do nothing. Online Trading Academy’s Chief Education Officer, Sam Seiden, suggests that investors need to focus on building a plan for potentially turbulent markets ahead.

In the week leading up to the global stock market plunge, Seiden predicted an imminent market decline and on August 17 Seiden initiated a bearish options position in shares of J.P. Morgan Chase (JPM) when trading was at $68.00 per share. Days later, JPM had fallen to $58.00.

“Most people spend the majority of their life working so hard for their money only to invest with minimal concern for the price they’re buying into the market at, no plan for profit and most importantly no plan for risk,” Seiden explains. “Then as they get older, they wonder why their dreams for retirement are shattered and their only strategy for survival is to work longer.” According to a recent CNBC article, approximately 36 percent of Baby Boomers have mentioned they plan to retire at 70 or later and only 27 percent are confident they will have enough for retirement.

Online Trading Academy focuses on helping investors think and act like banks and instititions. While average investors make money primarily during market increases, Online Trading Academy assists investors in building strategies to protect their capital and profit in all market directions, whether the market is going up, down or sideways.

“There are a few simple ways average investors can protect their hard earned capital from a market crash and also profit: by utilizing options and using Futures, just like Wall Street does,” said Chuck Fulkerson, Director of Education at Online Trading Academy. “The key is to stop investing your hard earned money like a retail investor and start thinking like Wall Street.”
