The Nelson Public Library will host a free stock trading seminar on Tuesday

Get some stock trading tips, for free

Nelson Public Library is hosting a seminar with Online Trading Academy graduate and presenter Cal Reeks on May 6 at 7 p.m.

The stock market… that’s for experts, right? Not necessarily, according to Online Trading Academy graduate and presenter Cal Reeks.

A successful stock market trader since 2008, Reeks offers to demystify online trading at a special presentation Tuesday, May 6 at 7 p.m. at the Nelson Public Library.

Using live online examples, Reeks offers an introduction to the basics of stock market chart analysis, including skills to find and choose the best stocks for success, interpret data such as overlays, trend lines, patterns and indicators, recognize buy and sell signals and even make money when the stock market goes down!

“Most people believe in the standard traditional way of playing the stock market,” says Reeks.

“This presentation will give you the tools you need to buy and sell stocks using online trading platforms. So even if you don’t understand company financial statements or how the stock market works, learning to read and analyze a stock chart offers another way to trade — at your own time and pace, in the comfort of your home. It’s not that complicated, it’s fun, and it’s profitable.”

This two-hour presentation is offered free of charge, although a donation to the library is welcome.  A full course in online trading is in the works for the fall through Selkirk College.
