He was able to do well enough to begin mentoring other is the art of Forex trading and he founded the Knowledge to Action Group which is a marketing organization that sells courses in Forex trading.
According to Greg Secker this is just the right time for people to be trading in the foreign exchange markets. The stock market is up, but it is very volatile with wide swings. Plus it is only open for a limited period of time. Forex is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it has millions of participants on a worldwide basis. The fluctuations are much smaller and the risk of loss is not as great. Secker recommends that no more than 1 percent of a person’s available cash be put on any single Forex trade.

The foundation partners with various youth programs in order to share positive values regarding education, life skills, leadership, and other community building programs.
