i do not think that he trades, just like so many gurus like zak Mir, sandy Jadeja, etc etc. but they have a service to offer, which could be good for a newbie.
Secker? does he offer alerts service? or money management?
what about Tom Hougard? I have been to his live alert service, and not that impressed!
One thing is 90% of "gurus" do not trade, else they would offer alert service
or they would be a money manager, but to my knowledge none of them are money managers.
i am not a money manager, but trade forex for few of my friends, and consistently make on average 5% per month for them, using very low leverage. I also get a pip rebate.
Just trading for 10 friends, easily earns me on average £5K per month from pip rebate and profit share. And I am not a "guru"
So basically in short, 99% of gurus DO NOT trade, but yes they have a value to offer to a newbie
