Professional forex traders from around the world converge at Forex Factory. Launched in March 2004, the website is designed exclusively to provide high-quality information that traders can apply in their pursuit of profits. Forex Factory is currently the #1 most viewed forex-related website, and the #1,046 most viewed website in the world, according to Alexa.
Every feature on the Forex Factory website is the result of an uncompromising design approach that's focused on supporting forex traders. Features like adjustable time zone, which allows traders to view the entire website in their local time, make for efficient information gathering. Advanced search features, such as Google-based global search and searching by member post history, make it easier to find useful information. Features like the Member Impact Ranking System (MIRS) lend context to opinions and analysis expressed by members. These features have been developed and refined for over ten years, collectively making the Forex Factory experience one of the richest available to traders.
The members of Forex Factory are some of the brightest minds in the trading world. Their intellect, experience, generosity, and humor gives life to the website and makes it an oasis for trading. Forex Factory is one of the few places on Earth where people from every country and every creed come together, put aside their differences, and work toward a common goal. This productive environment brings out the best in traders and allows them to progress by leaps and bounds.
Forex Factory stands on a strong infrastructure. The website is hosted with Rackspace, whose network is one of the fastest and most secure available. To further quicken the user experience, technologies such as page caching and load balancing are used extensively. Advanced systems have been developed to reduce noise and spam, which has resulted in an environment with relatively little distraction. These are just a few of the sophisticated web technologies that are used to optimize the speed, quality, and usefulness of information delivered on the website.
Forex Factory is not a "social network" and it's not a "portal." It's simply a site that is dedicated to providing high-quality information (i.e., timely, reliable, insightful, and easy to access) that traders can apply in their pursuit of profits. This mission is pragmatically pursued through all means necessary, as evidenced by the diverse product mix hosted on the website.
