New ProActive Investor Course Launched by Online Trading Academy

5-day immersion teaches students to think like a professional money manager

Irvine, CA, August 8, 2016 - Investors now have a new financial education option to help them plan a portfolio for wealth or retirement. The popular ProActive Investor course at Online Trading Academy (OTA) has been revamped to reflect the realities of today’s markets.

“In this five-day immersion class, you’ll learn how to think and invest like a professional money manager as you build a rules-based strategy to increase your wealth and real buying power in a global economy,” said Steve Albin, Vice President of Education. “You’ll define your financial goals, analyze the investing choices available to you, and then start creating a portfolio of assets that minimizes risks and enhances returns. In addition, you’ll review the essentials of managing a 401(k) plan dynamically.”

OTA defines the ProActive Investor as someone who knows the annual income they’ll need to live their desired lifestyle, both today and in the future, and understands the rate of return necessary to achieve that income. The course includes many interactive scenarios and exercises to reinforce the learning—including hedging against inflation, taking advantage of currency fluctuation, and how to preserve capital in challenging market conditions.

Students leave the ProActive Investor course with a self-built portfolio strategy that is based on their investing timeframe, risk tolerance, skills and goals. They can continue their learning with classes in trading specific asset classes as well as the ProActive Investor XLT, a web-based program in which they share a virtual desktop with an instructor who makes market trades in real time.

The new ProActive Investor course replaces the previous offering with both a new structure and diversified delivery methods. By incorporating pre-class preparation with video assessments and hands on trading activities in the classroom the course provides a robust offering for any learning style. It will be taught regularly at OTA’s worldwide campuses.
