The newly designed UK teaching facility will continue to extend OTA's international reach, adding to the Dubai and Riyadh UAE locations.

"In the current climate of Economic Globalization shrinking the distance between continents, and with trading, the financial markets at the forefront, it just makes sense to offer upcoming and experienced traders and investors the opportunity to get the skills and methodologies used to competitively trade on a global level as well," said Georgie Cox, managing director of Online Trading Academy, UK. "Our committed expansion into the UK is a testament to the increased demand around the world by individuals wanting to take control of their own capital and financial future."

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. OTA strongly believes that personal "hands-on" learning is the cornerstone of trading profitably and consistently. So, classrooms are deliberately kept to a maximum of 20 students per session and typically sell out very quickly because of such limited seating.
