Jordan Lindsey and Openness in Trading

Wall Street is known as a land of secrets. It is a place where incredible sums of money are made and lost every day, and often the key to maintaining a profit is making sure that the other players don’t know your next move. Whether it is a particular take on a set of facts, or a particular piece of data that others have overlooked, information can turn the tide, and it is rarely given away for free.

Nowhere is this more true than in ‘algo’ trading. Algorithmic trading, or trading based wholly or in part on the results of computer algorithms, is a relatively new, and highly secretive industry. Computers don’t discriminate, and a program that works for you will just as easily work for your competition, so naturally the details of one’s process would become secret by necessity.

However not everyone lives by this rule. Jordan Lindsey, founder of JCL Capital, operates on a very different wavelength. A self taught programmer and trader, he was an early adopter of algorithmic trading, especially in the realms of FOREX and cryptocurrency. A lover of sports and a traveling philanthropist, he does not fit the stereotype of a Wall Street trader or a lifetime computer nerd. However, his technical skills have been proven in the market, and he has consistently worked towards a goal of making market trading accessible to the average individual.

Lindsey’s JCL Capital was founded not only to make profitable trades, but to provide a forum for people to gather, discuss trading, and learn how to profitably trade using proven analytical methods and relevant data. To this end, Jordan Lindsey has continued to make his methodology public, providing real time market analysis and explanations of analytical methods to the general public.

This openness has extended into Lindsey’s work with cryptocurrencies. He has created an autonomous bot designed to analyze data in crypto trends to predict the rise and fall of coin prices. Designed to operate efficiently and transparently, it is another facet of a more public minded trading philosophy.

All together, Jordan Lindsey brings a surprisingly open and communicative trading career to what is traditionally a silent and secretive field.

Greg Secker’s Journey to Success

Greg Secker is the founder of Knowledge to Action Group, which holds a number of companies, including Learn to Trade, The Greg Secker Foundation, Capital Index, and Smart Chart Software. All these companies have one thing in common- they offer some form of training and education on trading. Through the education provided, Greg Secker hopes to improve the lives of people in one way or the other. These companies tell you a lot about Secker. He is a master trader, a philanthropist and an international speaker, just to mention a few hats that he wears.

In a recent interview with Inspirey, Greg Secker got the opportunity to narrate how he got into the trading business. He told Inspirey that he got in the business to help people get into the trading market with ease. He had noted that most people, who had no education of financial trading, had so many struggles getting started in trading. Besides, the learning tools available were so expensive. Therefore, he decided to come up with a tool that would help people learn the art of trading at a lower cost.

During the interview, Secker also mentioned how he got into trading. He remembers being in the corporate world and making a decent pay but was never satisfied. Instead, he wanted to be helping people learn how to make money. So, when he was still in the corporate world, he started an online trading platform, Learn to Trade, which he operated from his apartment. Within six months, the platform was paying him as much as he was earning from his corporate employer. And, by reinvesting the money he got from Learn to Trade, he was soon running a profitable business, which enabled him to leave his job at the young age of 27.

He also remembers making so many mistakes when he was starting out. However, every mistake was essential to building his business. It was through his mistakes that webinars and seminars were set up to teach people to avoid the same mistakes that he himself did.
