The popularity of retail forex trading has spawned a plethora of online portals designed to provide news, resources and training to individuals in real time. While some of these platforms are extremely useful, most online forex channels have become redundant. Based on our exhaustive survey of the hundreds of available online forex platforms, we’ve identified the top websites that provide the best bang for your buck. We strongly encourage traders to monitor these forex channels throughout the week for engaging content, timely news articles, educational resources and detailed economic calendars.
Babypips.com is one of the most beloved forex resources on the web. So many successful traders have graduated from the Babypips School of Pipsology, which provides a detailed, easy-to-read lesson plan of the forex market. The School of Pipsology has eight modules: preschool, kindergarten, elementary, middle school, summer school, high school, undergraduate and graduation. By completing all eight modules, you are well on your way to mastering the forex market.
In addition to having the best URL, forex.info is one of the most engaging financial portals on the web. The site is beautifully laid out with fun topics rarely covered on other financial news portals. The market news section is broken down into hot topics, fundamental analysis and technical analysis, allowing traders to navigate easily. The trader’s corner section offers inspirational stories, trading diaries and useful tips by top investors.
Like the name implies, forexnews.com is a great place to read daily news articles about forex and the broader financial markets. Forexnews.com offers a crisp platform with useful trading tools, live rates and an entire section devoted to bitcoin, the digital peer-to-peer currency. The trade ideas section provides daily trading analysis for top currency pairs. The website also doesn’t contain very many banner ads, making it fast and easy to navigate.
Fxtimes.com is one of the most authoritative forex resources on the web. What we like most about it is how actionable the trading recommendations are. Unlike other sites, FX Times provides detailed analysis on currency pairs, including the direction top analysts are looking to trade. Surprisingly, it’s one of the only websites we’ve found with a forex map at the top of the page, allowing traders to quickly see which trading sessions are open and which are closed.
If you can deal with annoying popups, FXStreet.com is a site you should have bookmarked. The website has one of the best economic calendars on the web, as well as one of the most detailed currency rate feeds. The website is better organized than most, allowing traders to quickly navigate between rates and charts, news, analysis and education.
Investing.com is one of the most complete financial resources on the internet. For starters, the website isn’t just devoted to forex, but the broader financial markets. However, navigating the forex content on the website is extremely easy. Investing.com has some of the most engaging contributor content on the web, making it a must-read.
There you have it – six incredibly engaging forex websites out of a sea of thousands. Hopefully this makes your job of bookmarking forex sites much easier. You’ll find everything you need and more in this list. Happy trading!
