After graduating from a technical school in his native country in 1993, the young man moved to the United States. He quickly learns the profession of a taxi driver, works in the Walt Street area.

Alexander Gerchik's basic trading approach
According to the reviews, the Businessman is a professional player in the US stock market, where he traded and trained new employees of the company. Returning to Russia, Alexander took up the training of traders and financial management. Despite having extensive experience in trading on the stock exchange, in Russia he teaches how to work on the Forex market.
