The new version of is now alive and it looks great. The site that came into life around two months ago received a totally new look&feel as well as new features.

The site was founded by Jamie Coleman and Gerry Davies that were two of the prominent people behind Forex Live. They were joined by Peter Jackson that also joined Forex Live at a later stage and by Peter Fell.  FXBriefs Review

After two months of coverage using a somewhat spartan site, the new version is very nicely designed, easy to use on desktop computers and also on mobile devices (which fast moving forex traders use more and more). The site provides fast, twitter style coverage on events moving currencies, as well as some quick commentary.

The aforementioned people behind the site have vast experience and vast connections in banks and other places. They offer coverage of options, barriers and talk from trading influential trading rooms that doesn’t appear in the news.

The new site offers readers a free report named 10 Secrets to Successful Foreign Exchange Trading, features FXstreet’s economic calendar, a neat glossary and more.

I have been following Coleman (which I also had the honor to meet) and co. for quite some time. The fast updates made Forex Live one of my favorite sites on the web, and I think this service is a must for every forex trader.

I was surprised to hear about the departure of Forex Live founders, and I wasn’t the only one. Coleman explained this move here.  Forex Live continues operating with some of the people that staffed it before the move and with new ones, and it maintains the same format as beforehand.

So what is the difference between both sites? I guess that each and every one of the many loyal readers has a personal preference for the different  contributors   Here at Forex Crunch, we like them both.

One clear difference at this point in time seems to be the business model: FXBrief focuses on subscribers whereas Forex Live has ads.
