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…

GBP/USD went down with Brexit and we very much anticipated so!

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.”

The vote over Brexit is almost here – FXStreet’s coverage

On Thursday an important referendum will take place in the UK to decide if Britain will leave or remain in the European Union. The so-called “Brexit” – a word that combines Britain and exit – is the possible outcome of a referendum where UK citizens will decide what they want to do with their country.

In words of Prime Minister David Cameron: “It is time for the British people to have their say. It is time to settle this European question in British politics.”

Some citizens think that Britain is being held back by the EU, which they say enforces hard rules on business and charges billions of pounds fees. David Cameron defends the idea of staying in the EU. Big business companies stand as well stand up to stay in the European Union because it’s easier to move money and products beyond British borders.

As a Forex trader, you might wonder: what effect does the referendum have (and will have) on the Pound, the Euro and other currencies?

MarcosHow does a day in the life of a Sales guy at FXStreet look?

Well, I arrive at 8 am at the office. I consider it is the best time to start my day since the office is quiet at that time. So I can set the most important tasks to do and make a list of leads/clients that I should contact within the day. 

It means you wake up quite early… are you a coffee addict who absolutely needs a cup of coffee to get ready for work? We have some of these in the office 😉

I am not such a fan of coffee, but I have to say that I think it is important to finish my “waking up” process!
