Becoming a savvy investor using social media

    Questrade Inc. and Online Trading Academy (Canada) host panel discussion
    with industry leaders to explore latest trend in investing advice

    TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - On Monday, May 25th, at 2 p.m. ET, a live webcast
/ panel discussion will explore the recent surge in usage of social networking
tools for investment and trading advice.
    The panel, I Invest Therefore I Tweet, is moderated by Michael
Hainsworth, host of Market Call on Business News Network (BNN), and includes
panelists FrugalTrader ( author and blogger), Jonathan
Chevreau (blogger, author, and National Post personal finance columnist), and
Sam Seiden (pro trader, author and trading instructor).
    The panel investigates the ways traders are using social media to take
charge of their investments, including the tools that are being used, how they
are being used, personal privacy and security issues, and how to filter
information for accuracy and reliability.
    Edward Kholodenko, President and CEO of Questrade says: "Investors are
exhausted by the market downturn. Their portfolios are diminished. They don't
know who to trust for advice any more. While the use of social networking like
Facebook, blogs, forums, even Twitter isn't new for online investors, what is
new is how pervasive and influential these tools have become."
    The panel discussion will take place in Online Trading Academy (Canada)'s
new high-tech facility in Toronto, and will be webcast live. Registration for
the event is free and is available at Viewers of the
live webcast will be able to Twitter their questions to or post questions directly in the webcast window.
    Kholodenko continues: "Since our inception 10 years ago, Questrade's
mission has been to give Canadians the information they need to achieve
financial independence. I believe our mission is even more relevant now,
particularly as we incorporate social media tools into our business model.
Investors are leaving their full-service brokers and replacing them with
social media to 'crowd-source' their financial advice, and we're committed to
supporting their needs."
    I Invest Therefore I Tweet is sponsored by Questrade Inc., Online Trading
Academy (Canada) and Business News Network (BNN). The panel discussion is the
kick-off event for Online Trading Academy (Canada)'s grand opening.
