About Author

Yohay Elam – Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I’ve accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I’ve earned the significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I’ve worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.


  1. Start Options was not the first to have a demo account with binary options, NADEX WAS. NADEX or North American Derivitives Exchange is actually a CFTC regulated United States trading exchange for binary options. Totally transparent and regulated to the highest degree and they have had a demo for a couple years. Give them a shot I am a trader there but I am tired of seeing these other so called binary options firms that lock up your money on a trade, thats gambling like a sports bet. NADEX you can trade in and out of binaries all day long your never locked in and you also can choose to make 100%200%400% on the different strikes that they have, they offer multiple strike prices not just at the market prices like the other firms. If you want more info contact me at [email protected] I would love to talk binaries with you.
