How we started
My name is Nick McDonald and I founded this site back on the 1st of May 2012. I was attracted to forex many years ago as I heard anecdotal stories about average people generating life changing financial returns in a short space of time. I read books, went to seminars, hired a trading coach and dedicated all my brain power to becoming a successful trader. As I learned to trade I doubled a few accounts (followed by blowing them up!).
While I was on this journey I searched for a trading room where I could interact with other traders and discuss the market while also learning from the success of others. I was surprised to learn that this resource didn't exist. So I decided to build it myself! I was determined to build a completely transparent and inclusive site that anyone could join.
I should mention I have little IT skills, so I relied on my team of Indian designers and developers to come up with a sexy layout and functioning platform.
After working through 10 different contractors, I was lucky enough to meet my now business partner Will Thomas. He registered for the trading room one sunny afternoon (he's from the UK, so it probably wasn't sunny where he's living...) and we hit it off immediately.
Will is an incredibly talented developer, and in October 2012 we formed a partnership with a common goal - To help clients by building the world's best forex website and online trading room in the world.
It has been one hell of a journey ever since! Over 500,000 members have registered, we now employ 52 full-time staff in addition to our team of 4 trading coaches contributing inside the trading room and educating you every day.
We might be spread across four hemispheres, operating from all sides of the planet, but we're all on the same page. We're serious about what we do, and the commitments we make to our customers.
We've been at it for more than 10 years, and we're just getting started. Watch this space.
We believe in an alternative to the trading of the past
We're focused on solving problems, rather than selling trading products. We want to make the world a better place and change people's lives through ForexSignals.
We're building ForexSignals together
We're doing things differently. For too long, trading has been obtuse, complex and opaque. We want to change that and build a Trade Room with everyone, for everyone. Our amazing community suggests features, tests the app and give us constant feedback so we can build something everyone loves.
Our way with words
How we communicate changes how people feel about us, so we'd better make sure our words reflect what we stand for. Our tone of voice guidelines exist to do just that.
We're a fast-growing team from all over the world
Home is everywhere around the world, our team is scattered around 20 countries, and we are just over 52 team members.
