Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg, famous traders and analysts, have been contributing with FXStreet for many years (10 years this month for Kathy!). They have been working for different companies throughout the years, but they’ve continuously shared their knowledge with FXStreet users, through articles and webinars. Both of them will now be speakers and hosts of a new show in our Live Video channel to take place every first Thursday of the month. That is the day just before the most volatile economic data release of all, the Non-Farm Payrolls. A perfect occasion to have these top-notch professionals help Forex traders understand mechanics, analyse currencies and get prepared for the day after.
The first show will take place tomorrow, Thursday December 3rd, at 16 GMT / 11 am EST.
