Orlando Welcomes Online Trading Academy

Online Trading Academy Pens Following the World Money Show Offering Professional Trader Education to Active Traders and Investors Alike

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 5, 2007 -- Temperatures soar to new highs in Orlando, but not because of the weather... Online Trading Academy (OTA), the world's only trading school that allows student traders to trade live using their (OTA's) capital, is heating things up on its own. OTA is offering the tools, techniques and technical analysis of trading typically utilized by professionals at its new Orlando learning center. Following his speaking engagement at the Orlando World Money Show -- Feb. 7th thru 10th -- John O'Donnell, world-renowned speaker and Chief Knowledge Officer, OTA, will meet personally with attendees at the new OTA facility's grand opening. OTA Orlando will introduce several free half-day workshops on Feb. 10th, 12th, 13th and 14th for active traders and active investors looking to gain an increased knowledge of market trading on an individual basis. OTA Orlando is the second center to open in 2007 and the 14th newly franchised location to open worldwide in the last two years that is dedicated to providing a professional trader education. The center is located at 5575 S. Semoran Blvd. Suite 506, Orlando, Fla. 32822.

Catering to both new and experienced active traders and investors, OTA provides the knowledge and discipline that gives traders logical control over their individual order executions. By utilizing a computer platform known as Direct Access Trading, professional trading instructors and mentors guide eager student/traders through a robust seven-day training program and ongoing support that ultimately equalizes the playing field between them and the skilled industry pros on the contra side of the trade.

The newly designed Orlando teaching facility will continue to extend OTA's global reach, adding to the recent London, UK opening in December 2006 and Toronto, Canada, which opened in January.

"Financial independence has evolved into a more interactive and online process," said Eyal Shahar, President and CEO of Online Trading Academy. "With the advanced technology and teachers available at each of our facilities, OTA continues to meet the increased demand for access to trader education worldwide for individuals wanting to take control of their own finances."

OTA is also the only financial education program that ensures students learn all the elements of consistent and profitable trading without risking 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 and individual "hands-on" live trading is the cornerstone of learning to trade 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.
