Online Trading Academy was again awarded a very special honor this year. The 19th American Business Awards® were announced recently and Online Trading Academy was honored with a Bronze for CliK as a revolutionary FinTech Solution.

This is the 4th Stevie Award Online Trading Academy has been honored with for its revolutionary new education, analysis and trading platform called CliK, this year in the category of Product Achievement – Best Fintech Solution.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,”.  In 2021 there we more than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.  More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

CliK is the only educational, analysis and trading platform on the market and has fully integrated OTA’s proprietary core strategy methodology which can be customized for each end-user based on how and what they trade and invest. Through warnings and decision support, CliK helps reinforce the habits of responsible trading and investing.

Mark Grieco, Vice President of Product Management commented on the award. “When we conceived CliK, we never set out to win awards.  We certainly appreciate this acknowledgement.  It is very rewarding.  But what is more rewarding is when we see the lights switch on in the minds of our students.  When they experience an “a-ha” moment, when they get it,” said Grieco. “Trading is a skill to be learned.  Too many people are trying to tackle the markets without the right tools and education to develop confidence in those skills, often instead acting on emotional impulses.  Our job is to help teach them rules-based trading, based on analysis, not emotion.”
