AlphaTrade Offers Free Book Predicting ``Dow 30,000 by 2008'' to Celebrate New E-Gate Portfolio

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--()--Sept. 13, (OTCBB:APTD) -- AlphaTrade is celebrating the release of its enhanced E-Gate Portfolio -- a powerful, upgraded portfolio manager several years in the making -- by running a special promotional giveaway featuring Robert Zuccaro's book prophesying "Dow 30,000 by 2008." Mr. Zuccaro is manager of the technology-oriented "Grand Prix Funds" and the promotion includes Mr. Zuccaro's "Market Outlook" newsletter.

The AlphaTrade/Grand Prix Special Giveaway will take effect with the Preview Release of the new E-Gate's portfolio manager in September. The new E-Gate portfolio manager, several years in the making, incorporates the best of user comments and provides an increasingly flexible and highly-personalized investment and information environment.

Mr. Zuccaro's book, "Why It's Different This Time" features incisive historical and modern analyses of the market and its reaction to the various technological breakthroughs of the day. Mr. Zuccaro's historically-based argument is that modern-day investors have not experienced a technological breakthrough of the magnitude of the Internet and related computer technology and thus may not be able to tell the difference between cyclical market moves and the longterm profit play offered by modern technological miracles.

"We're intrigued by Bob's analysis of technology and the markets," said Penny Perfect, CEO of AlphaTrade. "He's historically-oriented and long-term focused, and we believe our subscribers -- whether they agree with everything or not -- will find his viewpoint valuable and practical."

And Ms. Perfect added, "The AlphaTrade/Grand Prix Special Giveaway is the first of a number of special bonuses we intend to offer our subscribers. Additionally, Mr. Zuccaro's newsletter will remain on the site for members with monthly updates -- along with the views and analyses of other researchers we intend to offer on an increasingly rapid basis."

"I'm happy to be associated with AlphaTrade, which I consider to be one of the premiere streaming financial information sites on the 'Net," said Mr. Zuccaro. "AlphaTrade subscribers are obviously market-oriented and interested in the kinds of ideas that I discuss in my book. I think many will find useful information there."
