When our team discussed who could be the person of the year 2014, it seemed that one and the same name was coming back and back again… Adam Button. Everyone seemed to agree that he has done an excellent job during the year at the front of ForexLive, strenthening an already successful model. In addition, his decision to take over the management of the company (together with co-analysts Eamonn Sheridan, Mike Paterson and Ryan Littlestone) in September of this year represented a vital move for ForexLive but also excellent news for the sector with the arrival of a new independent website (ForexLive used to be property of the broker FXDD). Without Adam Button, ForexLive would not be what it is today and could even have died, with the damage that it would have caused on the Forex retail sector. Another remarkable and trader-oriented decision is the appointment of Greg Michalowski: he’s been brought in to help and make of ForexLive, almost only used by experienced traders, a website more accessible to newcomers. This way, ForexLive will expand his readership and at the same time promote the education of traders, something that FXStreet’s always supported.
We’re closing 2014 with successful numbers for the FXStreet Meetup Events: we have reached over 1800 people in the last six months, opened 6 new cities and we count with an average of 389 attendees per month and 35 per event.
FXStreet organises meetings all around the world (11 cities for the moment) where traders can meet, network, share their experiences in trading, learn about new techniques and have fun. » Read more…
Earlier this year, we told you a bit about the NGO’s we are supporting here at FXStreet. Today we’d like to talk about a charity we’ve been working with: New Light India. New Light is a non-profit community development project and charitable trust based in Kalighat, Kolkata, one of the oldest red light districts of the city. They are able to put together teams of local admins and editors, who get their first experience of being in the workforce. After a friend of Francesc, our President, spoke very well of New Light India, FXStreet hired their service during the last year for data entry tasks and the team has been totally reliable and professional. We warmly recommend companies in need of this type of duties to consider New Light India!
Since 2000, New Light has provided shelter, educational opportunities, recreational facilities, healthcare and legal aid for the children, girls and women in the Kalighat community. There is a crèche and night-shelter for the protection and education of victims of trafficking, women in prostitution and children rescued from red light areas. New Light also provides micro-credit facilities and an income-generation program (Anchal) for mothers within the area.
Save the date: next Wednesday, December 10th, will be the last edition of our One Day, One Topic event for 2014. That is already the 10th edition of an event which first took place in June 2012.
During one day, online on FXStreet, 5 professional traders will be with us to talk about ORDER FLOW. Order flow is the moment-to-moment aggregated buy and sell orders received by market makers. Traders can calculate the probable future flow of orders that will be generated so they can position themsevles to take advantage of the resulting price moves.
This November has been very special for us, we have had two tops speakers from FXStreet webinars at our live events. LA and Brisbane were the lucky cities that enjoyed their presentations. Andrei Knight spoke about Fibonacci in LA and Walter Peters traveled from Sydney to Brisbane to talk about his specialty Naked Forex Strategies. In Madrid and Hong Kong we had a good welcome gathering with about 20 people in each of the two first editions. In Singapore, some people could not even get a seat as the room was full to listen to Dr. Foo Loon Sung… and we had a surprise gift from Sydney, where they recorded the full presentation of Duncan Lin! and we can share it with you. The only thing we can say is THANK YOU to everyone involved for making these events even bigger!
December will mark the continuation of what we have been building these last months where more than 300 people enjoyed our monthly events worldwide! » Read more…

Ivan Delgado is the protagonist of the second post dedicated to our team of Analysts. The aim of this set of articles, written first-hand by their own protagonists, is to know more about how they became Forex experts, their day-to-day from different spots around the world, and specially about themselves. After Valeria Bednarik, we give the floor to Ivan. We hope you like them!
“As I imagine it must be the case for the vast majority of Forex practitioners, be it traders, strategists, analysts, editors, my first steps in this ever-evolving profession came somehow by accident, although as I look back, I feel truly blessed having bumped into such an intellectually challenging field, allowing me to breath FX day in and day out. » Read more…
Proud moment for our company! FXStreet received the Best Educational Tool Award for its Learning Center at the Forex Magnates’ London Summit 2014.
FXStreet’s Learning Center was launched a few years ago. It’s a complete program to learn about how to trade Forex, developed by our Gonçalo Moreira, long-time trader and FXStreet’s content advisor. It’s a great satisfaction to see FXStreet’s educational efforts recognized: be it through the Forex Magnates awards or through our collaboration with the Essex University to create the Financial Trading Analysis Master.
