OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Recognia, an industry leader providing independent investment research for online brokers and self-directed investors, announced today the launch of its education platform, Education On-Demand™.

In May 2011, Recognia fielded a survey completed by self-directed investors to determine their needs, requirements and uses of investor education. They found that investors greatly value education yet are not satisfied with their broker’s offering. As a solution to the need to provide brokers with valuable education, Recognia created Education On-Demand™. The first module within the product delivers objective educational content produced by well-known educator and technical analysis expert Martin J. Pring in the format of video lectures, self-evaluations, text tutorials and glossaries.

“We’re extremely pleased to roll out our Education On-Demand™ product today,” said Recognia CEO Rick Escher. “The product is a perfect solution for brokers and end users alike. Our aim is to make trading knowledge attainable and accessible to all investors, and to empower them to gain confidence in their trading decisions.”

“This partnership to create the Education On-Demand™ product has been a great opportunity share my trading knowledge and provide highly focused, professional and objective education to brokers and their account-holders,” said educator Martin J. Pring.

Lightspeed Trading will be the first broker to offer Education On-Demand™ beginning this month and will provide one of the education modules, technical analysis, free-of-charge to its clients. Additional modules can be added to Education On-Demand™.

“Trader education remains one of the most important elements of our offering,” said Michael Sedek, managing director, Lightspeed Trading LLC. “We have a longstanding partnership with Recognia and are eager to work with them to bring Education On-Demand to Lightspeed and help give our clients on-demand access to some of the most effective educational services available.”

The technical analysis education module will feature beginner, intermediate and advanced content designed to increase self-directed investor knowledge which can be accessed at the user’s own pace. The module includes video and text tutorials and offers users the ability to test their progress along the way.
