Global Forex Trading, a world-leading online currency trading corporation, has enlisted CBS Morning News commentator, Hollywood personality and popular economist Ben Stein to kick off a new trading education company, Strategic Trading Institute.
Strategic Trading Institute (STI) will debut at the Las Vegas Forex Trading Expo to be held September 8 and 9 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
"Strategic Trading Institute will not only serve to educate traders, but more importantly, it will focus on active traders' unique needs in order to meet their trading goals in the world's currency markets and beyond," said Gary Tilkin, president and CEO, Strategic Trading Institute.
A founding principle of Strategic Trading Institute is that a community- focused atmosphere that draws traders together to network with and benefit from their fellow traders and market experts is one of the most effective methods of education. Because of this, STI chose to hold its inaugural event in conjunction with the Las Vegas Forex Trading Expo, the only industry event that brings a wide range of market leaders together.
The second annual Las Vegas Forex Trading Expo is a free event that attracted nearly 2,000 registrants in 2005, and is on pace to at least double the attendance this year.
"When you believe in your products and services, you can go head-to-head with your competitors and bring the industry together to give traders the ability to make a choice among all service providers. The entire industry benefits from the increased competition and higher standards," said Tilkin.
STI will introduce its Market Masters program, which includes live workshops in topics such as forex market analysis and trading psychology. The workshops are hosted by four key presenters before and during the Las Vegas Forex Trading Expo, on Thursday, Sept. 7 and Friday, Sept. 8.
Global Forex Trading (http://www.gftforex.com ) is sponsoring a free, exclusive keynote presentation by Ben Stein called "The Two-Year Outlook of the U.S. Dollar," with a free cocktail reception and meet-and-greet to follow the speech.
All STI workshop participants will receive reserved VIP seating at the Ben Stein keynote address, which will be held Sept. 8 at 5:30 p.m. PDT at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Pre-registration forms and details for all events can be found online at http://www.stitrader.com . The workshops cost $500 for each four-hour session, and participants will receive a discount for registering for all four sessions.
The inaugural STI workshops will kick off Sept. 7 at 8 a.m. with Doug "The Head Coach" Hirschhorn, who will teach participants about the psychology of thinking and trading like a trader. Hirschhorn is a former Division I baseball player and CBOT floor trader, and is a current columnist for the popular lifestyle magazine, Trader Monthly.
STI presenters also include Larry Pesavento, an authority on Fibonacci trading techniques; Tom Joseph, a specialist in Elliot Wave principles and the creator of Dynamic Trend Profile; and Dave Floyd, a professional trader who is recognized for his trading signals and mentoring services for entry-level and intermediate-level traders.
"We've received many requests from all levels and types of traders who are looking for a comprehensive education in trading methodologies that work, especially from people who've received inadequate training in the past. We want to fill this void in the marketplace while also increasing the knowledge base and providing value to individuals who are well on their way to becoming successful traders," said Tilkin. "Everyone benefits when traders are more informed and more prepared to trade the markets."
About STI: Strategic Trading Institute (STI) was established in 2005 to serve as a leading education provider in the online financial trading industry. STI will achieve this goal by providing superior customer service, educational training and expert presenters to help all levels of traders meet their unique trading goals, as well as carrying out all company services with the highest levels of integrity.
Strategic Trading Institute, Division of Global Futures & Forex Ltd. (GFF), is part of a family of privately held companies, including the world- leading online currency trading dealer, Global Forex Trading (GFT), and the wholly owned subsidiary, GFT Global Markets UK Ltd. All companies are led by Gary L. Tilkin, a leader who has earned numerous awards within and outside of the financial services industry.
