Greg Secker is the owner of Learn to Trade. In a recent interview with CEOCFO, Greg noted that “I’m not a why guy; I’m a why not guy.” This mantra has always been his philosophy. He has always believed in agreeing to things and understanding the details along the way. As he was flying over Canary Wharf, Secker said that people asked him why he wanted to make trades. His response was why not. Over the years, Greg has created awareness for charity and supporting those in need. Moreover, he has shown people that they can make money anywhere, anytime and in any location.
Greg Secker studied agriculture and food science before opting for a career in the financial industry. According to him, his journey into the industry was more of a convoluted path. While studying at the university, he was building and selling computers. This opportunity provided him with plenty of time to learn a number of things, including how to code in older programs. Greg excelled in his work and ended up building a 3D interactive model for the fluid dynamics of a follicle. Later, he met up with an employee of Thomas Cook Financial Services who was passionate about computers. He invited him for an interview. That is how Secker secured his job at the company. He went on to build the Virtual Trading Floor, the first online currency trading platform.
Serving on the Virtual Trading Desk marked the start of his interest in foreign exchange trading. He understood how foreign exchange strategies worked. The profits generated from the trades made him want a piece of the action. To this end, he borrowed £5,000. Within a year, Greg had turned it into £60,000. Later, he retired. However, he got tired of staying at home and making the trades by himself. To this end, he started attending several seminars where he met people like Dr. John Demartini who encouraged him to start speaking in such seminars.
