transforming lives worldwide through exceptional trading and investing education.
Castle Rock, CO (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
The first class of students graduated from Online Trading Academy of Colorado at the Castle Rock, CO campus on August 29, 2008. Students from Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs and elsewhere undertook this intensive course, called Protrader, to learn the skills and practice using the same strategies and tools that professional traders and investors on Wall Street use.
Merlin Rothfeld, Master Instructor and Trader for the Academy and frequent guest on CNBC Squawk Box in America and Asia, taught the course. The Protrader course teaches strategies that range from long term investing to short-term day-trading. Students use the Academy's capital to trade "live" in class so they need not fear losing their own money while they learn. The Colorado campus opened in mid-July 2008.
Especially in today's turbulent financial times, people need to know what alternatives are available to preserve and build wealth. Most people lack the education and tools to make money in declining markets, in addition to rising markets.
Online Trading Academy Colorado's President, Karen Trisko, states, "You can get a financial education one of two ways--trial and error, which is very expensive and time-consuming, or by getting a formal education with a trading professional. It's a lot less expensive in the long run to undertake education that uses state-of-the-art trading tools, sound adult learning methods, repetitive practice, and individual instruction -- as we deliver in our programs."
General Manager Bob Montgomery adds, "Graduates have reported successful career changes after the course, trading their nine to five jobs for freedom, flexibility and fun...in fact, some have fully replaced their previous incomes in a matter of months."
Online Trading Academy's purpose is "transforming lives worldwide through exceptional trading and investing education." It has been in business since 1977 and now operates 25 academies around the world. NASDAQ chose Online Trading Academy as its strategic partner to provide educational content on TotalView®, its premier market data product.
