The leading Forex independent website has grown and consolidated itself as the largest and most famous website in the Forex market. FXstreet.com will celebrate its 10th anniversary with its users and contributors through a series of special events and contents.
Barcelona, Spain — May, 4th 2010 — FXstreet.com was founded in 2000, ten years ago. From a family business of 3 partners, the company has grown to become the first and largest information and education Forex website. The company now employs 25 people in its headquarters in Barcelona, Spain, and 17 more people throughout the world, which makes the 24 hours coverage possible.
FXstreet.com has managed to gain the collaboration of hundreds of contributors, from individual professionals and small companies right up to Forex Brokers and Investment Banks from around the world.
Francesc Riverola, the CEO and Founder of the FOREXSTREET S.L., expressed his complete satisfaction with the constant growth of the company: “When I started FXstreet.com 10 years ago I would never have dreamed that it would still be here and recognized as a site of reference for the Forex industry. That’s exactly what I’ve always wanted: to be trusted by traders. Many people have had a critical role in helping to build FXstreet.com, but above all I must highlight GFT. It has supported most of our new adventures and without them behind us, the site would not be what it is today. So thank you so much to Joe, Tim, Alisha and everyone there that has fought for us over the years.”
The website started as just a collection of third-party research and over the past decade it has developed a wide variety of services for currency traders, most of them free of charge, and is covering the market 24/5. FXstreet.com now offers hundred of rates and charts, its own exclusive 24h Forex news feed, a real-time economic calendar covering worldwide economic events, dozens of educational and market commentary webinars, technical studies, useful tools and calculators, and much more. The website now exists in eight languages: English (which is the main and most complete website), Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Russian, French, Indonesian and Arabic.
As its distinctive trademark, the independent website has always been proud of its unyielding commitment to provide objective and unbiased information and to enable its users to take better and more confident decisions.
