About Us

Fxexplained.co.uk is owned and operated by Optilab Partners AB located in Stockholm, Sweden and Market Chartist located in London, UK.

We have writers, developers and other contributors in different countries including the US and UK. It is our firm belief that in order to build and operate great trading websites for a global market we need to have a global perspective. We feel that we earn that perspective by collaborating with people from around the Globe. This perspective aids us in our mission to create great trading websites for our users.

Fxexplained.co.uk is aimed at the UK forex market but welcomes visitors from everywhere. Our aim is to be of real help to traders whatever their knowledge level, however, most of the learning articles focus on beginner traders and intermediate traders. The technical and fundamental analyses are useful to all traders.

We also provide reviews of forex brokers that we consider safe to trade with. Since the forex market is global and different rules and regulations apply in different countries, it also draws in some bad elements when it comes to brokers. Scams and fraud are unfortunately a real problem in all financial markets. Therefore we research all brokers we recommend and we don’t want you to only take our word for it but encourage you to do your own research as well before you decide what broker to start trading with. Although most large brokers that are regulated are very serious financial institutions that can be trusted, it is only prudent to do some research.

Our writers and analysts are highly experienced and publicly acclaimed in their respective fields. We are always on the lookout for more contributors, so if you feel that you can live up to our standards and want to write or contribute in any other way to FxExplained please contact us with a presentation of yourself.
