About Barbara Zigah

After working on Wall Street, Barb began her second career as a freelance writer at Daily Forex, where the CEO recognized fresh, untapped potential and was willing to give her a try. She’s never looked back. Since then, she’s worked steadily as a freelance writer and editor in the financial services and Forex-related industry.

When not regaling readers with the thrilling events of the Eurozone’s plight, she enjoys life as a wife and mother of three incredibly brilliant children. After spending nearly 10 years living in Ghana, Barb is happy to be back home in New Jersey.

Aside from her freelance writing duties, she is a voracious reader of nearly every genre and is a dedicated player of Scrabble and games of that ilk. A creative cook (out of necessity!), she has mastered homemade pizza dough and ricotta cheese and her kids are anxious for her to quit her day job and open up a restaurant so they can eat pizza all day, every day. But seriously, it is her one day dream to become an entrepreneur in the hospitality industry and she and her husband are working toward that goal.

Market News Analyst at DailyForex since 2008
