Welcome to The Forex Factory Blog!

Hello Forex Factory members! Given the increasing number of new enhancements, new features, and exciting things going on around Forex Factory, we think it’s about time we launch the official Forex Factory blog. Welcome to the first entry! Ok, so we’re a few years late with this – we’ll try to make up for it by keeping this blog updated often. ;)


Let me kick things off by telling you about some recent Forex Factory coverage in the press. We were super excited to have the FF calendar featured in the March issue of Stocks & Commodities Magazine! As you may know, S&C is a leading publication for traders, and to be featured on a full page (pg. 68) with a mention on the cover is really an honor! If you aren’t an S&C subscriber, you can pick up a copy of the March issue at your local bookstore or get a subscription at http://www.traders.com.

FX Week

FX Week, the Forex industry’s leading newsletter, featured the FF calendar in the March 2nd issue, in the “News in Brief” section. FX Week is a weekly publication for industry professionals and serious traders – you can check them out at http://www.fxweek.com.

    The default wp theme is nice mahmode? Simple, perhaps? Nice, IMO, no. I'd guess it will be changed very soon.

    5 years ago it was unusual to see 20 people in the forum at one time. Amazing what has happened over the last 5 years and much of the credit should go to Merlin. His early guidence and refusal to let Forex Factory go down the same ugly road as others like Moneytec is the main reason this place survives and prospers. I was fortunate enough to be here in the beginning and watch its growth and it is with great pride i call this my trading home. Why is this place great? simple. A conserted effort is made to keep ugly nasty people out and give decent and kind people a safe and decent place to learn this business. Congrats on the new blog and also for those of you behind the scenes for carrying that focus onward. Jim

    As james16 said in his post, amazing what happened over the last 5 years. To all the old administrators and specifically Merlin, thanks. It is indeed a feather in your caps that people have grown full-cycle and still visit FF. It shows that there is enough depth and valuable inputs. Enjoy. Johan

    I want to ask why, on my computer Forex Factory did not, and still doesn't show any news items between 6.30pm Wed.and 9.50am Thur. Australian time? Apparently there were major market moving events which did not show on my screen. Before you ask all the settings are correct!
