Online Trading Academy Blows Into the Windy City

World Renowned Trading School Opens Chicago Location, Bringing NASDAQ-Endorsed Strategies to the Historic Trading Capital

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 -- Online Trading Academy (OTA), the world's only trading school that allows student traders to trade live using their (OTA's) capital, has arrived in Chicago. OTA provides professional trading courses and instructors to Chicagoans looking to learn tools, techniques and technical analysis usually utilized by professional traders. The live learning facility, located near O'Hare International Airport at 2340 South River Road, Suite 130, Des Plaines, IL 60018, will open its doors on December 14th. In celebration of its opening, complimentary half-day introductory seminars will be available to the public on Dec. 7th, 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th and 16th. OTA Chicago is the 11th newly franchised location in the world dedicated to making available OTA's style of interactive education in a trader's community environment.

Offering both new and experienced active traders and investors an individual knowledge of the unyielding world of short-term trading for cash flow, OTA provides the knowledge and discipline that give uncertain traders logical control over their individual order executions that only professional traders know. By utilizing a computer platform known as Direct Access Trading, specialized instructors and mentors guide eager students through a robust seven-day training program and ongoing support that ultimately equalizes the playing field between them and the skilled industry pros.

The newly designed Chicago facility is the latest location to expand the OTA family. Chicago's rich history of trading, from the Chicago Board of Trade -- the world's oldest futures and options exchange -- to the famous Chicago Mercantile Exchange, provides the perfect backdrop for such an esteemed educational program focused on financial guidance.

"With the future of financial independence continually evolving into a more interactive and online process, we remain ahead of the curve by teaching the skills and methodologies used to competitively trade on a daily basis," said Michael Young, director of education of Online Trading Academy. "Our Chicago opening is a testament to the increased demand for individuals wanting to take control of their own finances."

OTA is also the only financial education program that ensures students learn all the tricks of the trade without the risk of losing their own money. Tuition for all courses can be fully rebated if students choose to open an account with an affiliated Broker/Dealer, FCM or Currency Dealer.
