LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 18, 2005) - Equal Trading, Inc. (OTC:EQTD), a complete global service provider of Foreign Exchange trading has contracted Michael Palethorpe, a Landmark Education training expert, to provide marketing, seminars, and classes exclusively for the company's Forex training division.

"In reaction to the overwhelming public demand we have received for Forex education, Equal Trading is tremendously excited to announce Mr. Palethorpe shall aggressively pursue this lucrative segment of our industry" stated James Palmer, Equal Trading President and CEO. "This new education division will not only generate outstanding value, it shall accelerate enrollment in our flagship product, Equal's online trading platform, as each student will automatically be given a live trading account. Retaining students as clients will allow the company to profit in both the short and long run" added Mr. Palmer.

Mr. Palethorpe succeeded with his debut in the US public domain as a founder of XML Global Technologies in 1999, a world leader in XML data search products (www.XMLGlobal.com). By 2000, Michael co-founded and designed NorthShoreMountainBiking.com (www.NSMB.com). Within 18 months, Mr. Palethorpe grew NSMB.com to the second largest website of its kind, with over 9,000 user visits daily. In 2001 Mr. Palethorpe became a Regional Manager for Landmark Education (www.LandmarkEducation.com), a global education enterprise with 57 offices worldwide. Michael produced a 33% increase in revenues for his region by doubling registration in Landmark Education courses. "Our negotiations with Mr. Palethorpe focused on results. We are extremely proud to report our contracts are entirely performance-based, which can only increase our earnings. Equal has seized an opportunity, on behalf of all our shareholders, to profit from Michael's commitment. This is truly a win-win scenario." added Mr. Palmer.

"Equal Trading's rapid growth, coupled with their pursuit of the opportunities inherent in Forex education, demonstrates the company is dedicated to building value for the long term" said Mr. Palethorpe. "Numerous well established companies such as Refco, FxSolutions, Forex.com, and GCI have entered into the training market. We shall capitalize on the profitable aspects of their aggressive marketing campaigns and position ourselves further by delivering comprehensive, proven trading techniques. Equal Trading will go beyond simply teaching clients how to use the company's platform, the problem inherent with most Forex training, we shall convey the same techniques we apply to Equal Trading's in-house traders, those responsible for trading the company's own funds."
