If you receive an email or social media contact on behalf of FXStreet offering you this kind of service or any other suspicious email, please send it forward to us as we are in touch with the authorities.
Such illegal activities are taken very seriously by FXStreet. After internal investigations, we have discovered that the name of the person behind the last wave of cozenages is Jordan Barta.

How does a day in the life of a member of FXStreet U.S team look?
After drinking my daily dose of caffeine, I check my email 30 minutes before I start my workday because I like to be up to date in recent events just before I’m in charge of the US Session at FXStreet. When I’m working, I check that all the site content is updated and that there isn’t any technical mistake to guarantee a pleasurable experience to our users.
Usually, the American Session is calm, except when Janet Yellen speaks or when unexpected macroeconomic events take place, but the best of all is that I have always by my side a great team of News Editors aware of any event, which makes my daily routine a unique experience. » Read more…

How does a day in the life of the Administration Assistant at FXStreet look?
I arrive at the office at eight o‘clock. I take off the answering machine and I open my email’s inbox. Then, I do all the tasks derived from it. After that, and depending of the day, I prepare some invoices, update some documents, claim for payments…
As the main responsible at reception, do you prefer to greet visitors or to answer telephone calls?
There’s not a high volume of visitors or phone calls. My contact with them is very brief because I’m just an intermediate between them and someone at the office. Anyway, I think the personal contact is always the best option to assist clients. » Read more…

At FXStreet we’re always looking to offer the best objective information at one click for traders and professionals. For Brexit’s coverage, we provided breaking news, analysis, opinion pieces and more than 15 live coverages. And so we did anticipating Pound Sterling’s fall before the UK referendum was even announced.
Last Christmas, our contributor Omkar Godbole and, Gonçalo Moreira, Forex analyst and Content Advisor at FXStreet, warned us about it at GBP/USD Forecast 2016: BoE liftoff could be delayed, Bears could target 1.45-1.4280.
In words of Godbole, “the Brexit fears in H1, along with the delay in the BOE liftoff is likely to keep Sterling under pressure. We may be in for a serious fall if the markets focus on the worsening UK current account to GDP ratio. Sterling could target 1.3954 in this case”.
But it was Moreira‘s Point and Figure chart that had the best forecast: “The downside risk implied by two horizontal counts resulting from the consolidation formed since Spring 2015 is 1.3400 and well below the early 2009 low, 1.3000. No upside target is valid in this resolution, the reason being the bearish semi-catapult already breaking down on two occasions.”
