We’d like to share some news about our Live Video channel with you today.
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.

One of the goals of our website redesign was to improve the loading time of our pages. And we made it! That means the users’ experience has improved: they have to wait less to see our charts, data and articles. » Read more…
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.
That’s when the decision was taken to make a profound reform that would be the version 3.0 of our website. » Read more…
As we announced last week with a letter from our CEO, Carolina May, and after a few technical hiccups that delayed the release, the 3.0 version of FXStreet is finally here!
The best you can do is to have a look and explore the website by yourself – noone better than you know what you need and what you like.
But we have also prepared a couple of presentations you might want to have a look at! » Read more…
Dear FXStreet user,
Welcome to the New FXStreet.
Two years ago we started a long journey that led us to what we call today the 3.0 version of FXStreet. We have a very talented team of journalists, analysts, marketing professionals, designers and IT experts and a very demanding audience. We did a massive redesign to keep delivering the best service to our 6.5 million yearly visitors of our English site. We knew that we had to change, and we had to get everyone in the company involved, to establish objectives and analyze how our audience related to us. We changed many things along the way and we know that we still have a long road to go as FXStreet will continue improving and evolving. » Read more…

FXStreet will celebrate in a few days the 10th anniversary of its “Trade NFP Live” webinar in collaboration with Wayne McDonell. Wayne didn’t miss a single data release in all these years, he’s been there every first Friday of the month, without interruption, for a 3-hour webinar. He was there well before the financial crisis exploded, he covered the dramatic destruction of 699 k jobs in April 2009 and the recovery one year later. He was there when the flu or technical difficulties made things challenging. And he will be there to celebrate the 120th edition, on May 6th, 2016.
We took this anniversary opportunity to ask him a few questions! » Read more…

After talking with members of the Marketing, Content and Overseas teams, it was time to talk with one of the guys of our IT department! A cheerful person with a strong Cuban accent, Alain has been with us since August 2014. He explains us what working at FXStreet is for him, but also why he came to live in Barcelona or how the Barça soccer team is doing recently. Meet Alain, one of the six software developers of the leading Forex information website.

How does a day in the life of an IT guy at FXStreet look?
Every day at 9h30 am, we hold a Stand-up meeting in the IT department: each staff member explains what he’s been working on, what problems he encountered in his tasks and what he will do today. This is a short meeting we do in the middle of the IT space in the office, and as its name implies, we all remain standing to make it more agile.
The best part is that if someone is late at the meeting, he has to bring donuts to the whole team. I hope someone will be late every day, but, to be honest, I’m the one who has to pay for the round most of the time 😉 » Read more…
