Last Monday our staff was invited to a surprise event to celebrate the successful launch of the redesign of FXStreet. We all left the office at 12 pm and took a bus to… we had no idea where! After a bit less than an hour, we arrived at a restaurant on the beach with beautiful terraces. We were welcomed with drinks. Very pleasant moment under the sun. Then we had lunch in the restaurant (with sea view of course!)… whose dessert trolley impressed everyone – have a look at the pics!

Since the launch of the New FXstreet on May 12nd, we’ve open several channels to collect our users feedback: an online survey, a live chat, a special email address… all of them available in many places on FXStreet and around! In total, we’ve received around 900 comments in less than 3 weeks.
We want to thank you all for taking time to tell us what you like or dislike about our redesign.
If you are a regular of our Live Video channel, you know that Dale Pinkert has been a pillar of this project that started in June 2013 with the “Live Analysis Room“. Since then, Dale has been every day on his show, for two hours, providing market analysis, helping our community of traders and interviewing tens of markets professionals. After many shows and months of constant commitment to FXStreet’s community, Dale Pinkert decided to put an end to his popular show. We wish him the best in his future endeavours: a skilled trader and veteran of the markets as Dale will surely find great projects to work on and keep helping others.

Internally, we call it “3.0”. Externally, it’s the #NewFXStreet. And after a few hiccups and delays in the release, it’s here!
How it all got started
The first meeting that led to our website redesign was a brainstorming about how FXStreet should evolve and what should be improved. It was in February 2014. We made a big list that is still pinned on a door in our main meeting room.
This list of needs and goals was so long and requested so many profound changes that the only way to fulfil them was to do a total “reset” by using a new backend and frontend structure for FXStreet. We needed to be more flexible and our systems were not offering this necessary freedom for our team to innovate, run continuous tests and swiftly adapt to new challenges.
