GlobalTec and Akamai Technologies launch Wizetrade TV

January 25, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
GlobalTec and Akamai Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM), today announced the launch of Wizetrade TV, the first and only network dedicated to helping the individual investor become as successful as possible by providing 12 hours of live-in-the-market programming every trading day.

In addition to helping traders learn how to recognize the best potential trades in the major financial markets, Wizetrade TV is a unique networking platform for viewers to share their hottest trade opportunities and strategies with other viewers.

"Wizetrade TV will take the online trading experience to the next level — the personal level," said John Dankovchik, president of Dallas-based GlobalTec, a nationally recognized provider of trend recognition software and a leading investor training organization. "Where other traditional financial networks offer broad coverage of the markets, Wizetrade TV focuses on the trades that matter most for individual investors: those trades they are in or that they are considering getting into or out of. Wizetrade TV is real people, making real trades, and taking real profits."

By teaming with Akamai Technologies, the leading global service provider for accelerating content and business processes online, GlobalTec delivers Wizetrade TV right to a customer's computer anytime, anywhere an Internet connection can be established.

"By leveraging the Akamai platform, GlobalTec can offer its customers a superior experience through fast, reliable delivery of trading information content right to their personal computers," said Paul Sagan, president and CEO of Akamai. "The demand for online trading content is growing rapidly, and Akamai is excited to work with an industry leader such as GlobalTec on the content distribution infrastructure for its new Wizetrade TV."

The Wizetrade TV daily lineup begins at 7 a.m. Eastern and covers all the major markets from before the opening bell to the closing bell and beyond - from (spot) FOREX and stocks to stock options, commodities and futures. All daily programs are archived for five days and are available via Video on Demand. Training programs are also available 24/7 via Video on Demand.


Viewers drive the content of daily programming by submitting questions via email or calling in to Wizetrade TV studio hosts, a diverse group of GlobalTec's foremost software and training experts who are themselves experienced traders. While analyzing hundreds of charts daily based on what drives the market - supply and demand - Wizetrade TV experts combine a wealth of trading knowledge and an ability to communicate to traders of all skill levels with a passion to help all traders reach their goals.

The charts seen on Wizetrade TV are based on a patent-pending proprietary algorithm that is common in all GlobalTec trend recognition software (Wizetrade, 4X Made Easy, Wizetrade for Options, Commodity Explorer and CommandTRADE). It is not necessary to own GlobalTec software in order to benefit from Wizetrade TV.

"The beauty of Wizetrade TV is that you don't need to own GlobalTec software to get value from our shows and experts," Dankovchik said. "Traders can take the information Wizetrade TV provides and submit trades right to an integrated broker through our software programs, or they can simply call up the broker of their choice and enter or exit trades based on what they've seen and heard on Wizetrade TV. Wizetrade TV is for all traders."


All traders, regardless of skill level, have one thing in common: they are all looking for that next profitable trade. Wizetrade TV is the perfect vehicle for this, as viewers call or e-mail the studio with their trade- specific questions.

"If you're a trader who wants to know about potential trade opportunities, who better to hear that from than other traders who actually have some skin in the game-" Dankovchik said. "Tuning in to Wizetrade TV is like joining a network of thousands of traders who are more than willing to share the hottest trading ideas in the market."
