Greg Secker’s Life in Financial Trading

Greg Secker’s fame in the financial trading world began in England before it spread to major cities around the world. He started trading in forex in his twenties, after leaving formal employment at the then Mellon Financial Corporation. Secker didn’t start in a stylishly furnished office; his company began in his home. He had not traded in forex prior to starting his company, but he had been following the trading activities of colleagues in the companies he had worked for.

A few years after he started trading through his company, Greg Secker was no longer just a forex trader but also a trainer. He had founded several companies such as the Knowledge for Action Group and was offering free and paid-for courses on financial trading. Secker’s objective was to reach a large number of people who were looking for information on how to get into forex trading.

As he notes on his websites and also in his seminars, forex trading is not a mystery. It is easy to understand the basics of the trade and to have a career in forex trading. The fact that he took up forex trading on his own with just information he had gathered watching traders when he was employed makes him the preferred trainer for many beginners who want to know the risks involved. He covers all of the main questions beginners have such as how to manage risks when to trade, how to create a trading plan and how exchange rates work.

Worth noting is the number of awards Greg has received for his dedication to educating new financial traders. For example, in 2010, Secker’s Learn to Trade came in at position 49 in Sunday Times Fast Track 100 awards. The criteria for companies to make it to this annual list is they must be private companies, and with a commendable growth in sales in a period of three years. Other internationally acclaimed awards Secker has won include the Global Banking & Finance Review award for Best Forex Educator and World Finance Magazine’s award for Best Educator. He is no doubt a great scholar in life.
