On November 14 and 15 Finance Magnates held the London Summit, a two-day B2B event for Forex industry executives where networking was one of the main objectives. And as every year, FXStreet was there!
This year, Sergi López (CMO), Felipe Ferrer (Advertising Manager), and Colm Mullan (Head of e-sales) represented our company, where they met brokers to discuss new business opportunities and also they were able to discover what is trending in markets.
We are headquartered in Barcelona but FXStreet wouldn’t be the same without its international co-workers. And that’s why today we want to present you Alberto Muñoz, FXStreet’s Spanish Forum Manager. On this interview, he explains to us how is for him working from home in Madrid and how hard is the life of a forum moderator. What is more, and it might surprise you, discover what was one of his first jobs before landing in the financial world.

First of all, how does a day in the life of the Spanish Forum Manager at FXStreet look?
Well it’s like a… roller coaster! 😀 Seriously speaking, there are days when there’s low activity and days when a lot of users decide to ask questions about Forex or some of them decide to start a quarrel for any insignificant reason and you have to intervene and ban a user. At the end, that means that you’re 24/7 watching the forum to avoid any conflict and help users.
This Sunday, Spanish police injured more than eight hundred people in Catalonia. Today, we want to express our condemnation of those acts and support all nonviolent forms of expression. This is why we have decided to join today’s general strike called by the civil society in Catalonia.
FXStreet has its headquarters located in Barcelona, Catalonia. In this region of Spain, last Sunday, people celebrated a referendum for the independence, called by the Catalan government and deemed illegal by Spain.
Some of us, our parents, grandparents, and children were voting when Spanish police headed to the poll stations to requisition ballot boxes and exerted a disproportionate use of force to the peaceful resistance found. The images speak for themselves.
Attacking the population for casting a vote is not acceptable in modern Europe. We must stand-up against those who use violence, no matter which is the excuse or who is the perpetrator.
We are very sad to let our users down for one single trading day, but we feel it is our duty too to protect this nonviolent principle.
Today we want to present you one of our most veteran members: Vicky, who is in charge of the Spanish web area and Webinars. On this interview, she explains to us how it has been her journey on FXStreet and how traveling and cinema play an important role in her free time.

When I arrive at the office, the first thing that I do is to update the Spanish site with news, reports and I decide the featured content… After this, I check my email and I answer to our contributors, experts and users. I manage my time between the Spanish site (all morning, usually) and Premium in the afternoon. Continue reading Meet Vicky, FXStreet’s Spanish and Webinars Manager
