“The Trader of The Year is becoming an important event in our site”, says Carolina May, CEO of  FXstreet.com. “We are launching now the 6th edition. We have found the support of many brokers along the years. This proves the industry’s interest for the initiative.” The idea behind
the competition is for traders to compete with each other, but not only: “We hope to generate a place for learning, trading, sharing strategies and of course offering a reward to the winners”, stresses May. “Giving a relatively limited period of time (1 month) for the traders to get a profitable record encourages them to have a clear vision of their strategy and how they will control risk.”

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.

Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
