Greg Secker is an entrepreneur, educator, philanthropist and international speaker. His road to success was as a Forex trader. He was so successful that he became a multi-millionaire before he turned twenty-seven. Secker’s education was at the University of Nottingham where he studied Agriculture and Food Services before he entered the financial world. It is hard to connect which dots that directly led Secker to his commercial success. Secker’s education prepared him to be a gentleman farmer or a grocer.

There are those that refuse to believe that someone without an MBA can master the currency trade and have accused Secker of being a wizard. But through a combination of ingenuity, hard work, being a good listener and intelligence, Secker learned to trade foreign currencies.

Greg Secker moved quickly from the Thomas Cook Financial services to the foreign exchange business and then to Virtual Trading Desk, a new foreign exchange business. VTD is a Forex trading platform and is Forex’s first online real-time platform. Thus, currency trading is not in one centralized exchange but is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC).

Forex traders are exposed to large foreign transactions, and its sole existence is to satisfy the need to exchange currencies. As a result, the Forex market is the most liquid and largest financial market, and its average trading value is $2,000 billion (US) a day.

Greg Secker then took a giant professional leap and was offered the V.P. at a major Fortune 500 investment bank, Mellon Financial Corporation. Secker cleverly took advantage of work with Mellon’s top traders and trading strategies and set up his person trading account in his home. Then in three months after leaving Mellon, Secker created his company, Learn to Trade, a global trading education company.
