The final month of 2012 was the weakest month of the year, as expected. Despite the holiday season, December 2012 was still better than December 2011.

All in all, Forex Crunch continued advancing in 2012, enjoying growth in all parameters apart from a small slide in time on site. 2012 was a very interesting year, but market volatility certainly slowed, and the regulation environment in some countries was less favorable than beforehand.

For reference, here are the numbers for November 2012 and for December 2011 (including full 2011 figures).

I hope that 2013 will see stronger growth in all fields. I wish everybody a happy and successful 2013.

After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a 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.
