The global financial crisis of 2008 is considered by many economists and analysts to have been the most damaging financial crisis since the Great Depression in the 1930s. What started with a mortgage and banking crisis in the United States snowballed into a global financial crisis during which entire countries’ economies were shaken to their very core, and private investors lost their fortunes while institutional investment institutions and even several national governments required bailouts and assistance just to survive.
It was precisely at this time of crisis that DailyForex transformed from a small financial portal into an authority site for broker information and market analysis. DailyForex started as a four-person team in a small, windowless office. That young team worked day and night to provide a valuable service to traders worldwide – and we’re proud that most of our early staff is still here to provide our traders with the reliable service they’ve come to expect. Today, DailyForex has dozens of employees including analysts throughout the world who provide market insights around the clock so that traders can access the markets intelligently at their convenience.
Our goal is to restore confidence and trust to traders worldwide. At the same time, we aim to provide valuable educational articles and market insights that can help traders better understand the markets so that they can trade more profitably for a longer period of time.
At DailyForex, we know that the markets can be complicated, which is why we want to make it as easy as possible to get the information you need, how you want it and when you want it. We share our information in a variety of ways so that traders can get comfortable market access however they desire. Want to get updates directly to your inbox?

Source of Authority
At DailyForex, we know that almost anyone can build a website (or hire someone to build it) - but not everyone can provide traders with real, useful information. Our highly-educated team members have spent years studying in relevant fields such as economics, journalism, and politics, and each team member uses this knowledge to make our content stronger and our core offerings as relevant as possible to our global trader base.
Our technical analysts have years of experience in the world of Forex trading, both trading for themselves and in some cases, on the institutional level. They are not just analyzing the market and lecturing about how to trade; they’re actually applying their knowledge to their own trades on a daily basis. Our fundamental analysts have been watching political trends from the front lines of Europe, Africa, and America, and have been reporting to DailyForex readers for nearly a decade. Why get your market updates from newbies when you can get it from professional analysts you can trust?
How we Conduct our Reviews
At DailyForex, we know that not all Forex brokers are created equal. And we also know that not all Forex brokers reviews are created equal. That’s why we conduct in-house reviews of all the top Forex brokers. Each of our reviews provides you with a first-hand evaluation of a specific broker, so that you can find online Forex brokers that will best meet your needs. In the scope of our research, we test the following criteria:
General Broker Information: See at a glance when your prospective brokerage was established, what languages are available, what the minimum deposit is and other important information that can help you determine whether a specific Forex broker is right for you.
Trading Platform: We test each broker’s platform and provide you with screenshots and feedback about our experiences. We also tell you whether a specific broker offers a web-based platform, a downloadable trading platform, mobile trading capabilities and access to the popular MetaTrader 4 platform. Likewise, if you’re looking for an autotrader, you’ll find the information you need here.
Features: Every trader has specific Forex trading features and tools that he just can’t live without. In the scope of our Forex brokers reviews, we document which features are offered by each broker so that you can see at a glance if a specific broker offers the features you’re looking for.
Ease of Use: From account registration to trade execution, you deserve a Forex broker that is easy and enjoyable to use. We spend time testing the registration process and trading platforms of each broker and evaluating which Forex brokers are truly the easiest to use, and which ones are not worth the bother.
Customer Service: Reliable customer service can be counted among a broker’s best assets, or among its most notable flaws. We’ve tested the chat, phone and email support of hundreds of Forex brokers to determine which ones offer accessible customer support and which ones leave their traders in the cold. We’ve documented our findings with screenshots so that you can judge each broker’s customer service team for yourself.
