Well, during his college days, Greg Secker used to sell computers. It was then that he got interested in computer programming and started coding. With time, he had become quite a geek and even got a chance to demonstrate his talent at a fair. It was during the fair that he made friends with an employee of Thomas Cook. Later on, the employee recommended him for a vacancy and he was considered.
Working at Thomas Cook, Greg Secker was asked to help build the first online trading platform. He would work with expert traders all day. In order to make the platform void of errors he had to learn everything about trading. And, that is how he came to know and love forex trading.
After working for Thomas Cook for several years, Greg Secker was admitted by Mellon Financial Corporation as the Vice President. With the new job, he had a lot of time in his hands, which he used to start his own trading platform. Initially, he borrowed 5,000 Euros and by the end of the year, the money had multiplied 12 times. This gave him the courage to quit and start his own company , where he would not only trade but also train people how to trade.
