Online Trading Academy is an education company that provides education to professional traders regarding trading on financial markets. Eyal Shahar founded the company in 1997 as a trading floor. At one point, the business had 180 traders handling $500 million a day in transactions. In order to improve trading results, managers and the top traders were offered daily review and coaching sessions to help the traders become more consistent and profitable. This training program grew, and soon other companies were sending traders in for training. In 2001, after the Dot-com bubble collapse, the company shifted to focusing solely on providing this trading strategy reviews, training and education to the general public.
