Bay Street Comes to Yonge Street

May 23, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Toronto, ON, (May 23, 2009) Online Trading Academy today officially opened its new high tech facility in Toronto. Recognized worldwide as one the most trusted names in financial education, the Academy offers top-level courses on effectively and successfully trading online.

"Online Trading Academy is known for its excellence in financial education," says Ron De Appolonia, the General Manager of Online Trading Academy (Canada). "Our approach is to give students hands-on experience so they get the confidence they need to do it themselves."

OTA courses are tailored to different skill levels, from novice investors through to active traders, and cover stocks, options and forex trading. The students trade under the guidance of an OTA instructor — who is also a professional trader. The curriculum is personalized to suit each student, culminating in a customized trading plan appropriate for the student's own financial objectives.

"In today's economy, it's no secret that more and more Canadians are taking control of their investments," continues De Appolonia. "Even the federal government is making a big push for financial literacy. Opening a location in Canada right now is very timely. "

In addition to its 2, 5 and 7-day courses, OTA has free half-day workshops that introduce potential students to the OTA training approach. Exclusively to the Canadian school, OTA offers Face To Face, one-on-one sessions with a pro trader, in which the student can set the agenda for a meeting of up to an hour. Also, OTA has partnered with online brokerage Questrade as the presenting brokerage, and all students who open a Questrade account are refunded their course tuition through discounted trade commissions.
