The Forums product is home to more active traders than any other financial forum in the world. Traders from every country can be found sharing ideas, debating tactics, and swapping war stories. There are threads dedicated to every imaginable trading topic, filled with first-hand accounts from traders who've been there. It's a productive environment where professional discourse is the norm, supported by astute members and a moderation approach that's true to trading culture. Information on becoming a member can be found in the user guide.
The Trades product is a window into the live brokerage accounts of thousands of traders. The product sports several innovative features, including a streaming feed of members' trades, a leaderboard for tracking the month's best returns, and an aggregate-positions analyzer that reveals how traders are positioned, now and historically. Astute traders can capitalize on the Trades product as a source of limitless insights and real-world education.
The News product breaks market-moving news faster and more consistently than any internet source, making it the go-to destination for understanding the daily, hourly, and minute-by-minute market drivers. And when news isn't breaking, the product serves as an intelligent curation of the financial media's most insightful stories, making it easy for traders to follow the global news flow. Forex Factory's unique approach, combined with an editorial team working 24 hours a day, makes for a news feed that's high in value, low in noise, and catered specifically to forex traders.
The Calendar product is so innovative that it changed the global standard for economic calendars. Since 2005, most of the financial industry's calendar innovations were pioneered by Forex Factory, including event impact ratings, adaptive timestamps, event detail views, event filtering, data-source linking, economic data charting – and the list goes on. But what really sets the Calendar apart is the elite team of financial economists that back it, operating 24/7 to ensure the Calendar is accurate, reliable, and current, so that traders can depend on it for their most important decisions.
The Market product is powered by a sophisticated infrastructure that aggregates prices from multiple sources. The infrastructure has been developed by Fair Economy since 2009, and its price-aggregation capabilities enable Forex Factory to provide prices with exchange-like integrity, bringing a trace of centralization to an otherwise OTC market. The Market product also includes synthetic instruments that cross currencies with metals (e.g. Gold/GBP), energies (e.g. WTI/EUR), and cryptocurrencies (e.g. BTC/JPY). More information can be found in the user guide.
The Brokers product is an advanced guide to properly-regulated forex brokers. The guide represents a breakthrough in the way traders research brokers, combining up-to-date information, extensive detail, and real-time spreads – all wrapped in a versatile interface. The information on the broker guide is actively maintained by Forex Factory's editorial team, who research and monitor the listed brokers on a daily basis to ensure traders are analyzing the freshest information possible.
The Trade Explorer is a web-based interface that empowers traders to intelligently analyze their trading performance. It not only allows for the evaluation of historic performance, but also provides real-time analytical capabilities by automatically synchronizing with the connected brokerage account. While it's still in the early stages of development, the Trade Explorer has already introduced a number of innovations such as powerful graphing capabilities, auto-synchronizing, and equity/balance controls.
