FXStreet, where Forex never rests
Forex Traders do sleep but markets don’t. When a trader has just woke up and logs on in Boston, another one located in Tokyo is winding down for the day, while a third one in London finishes lunch and waits for Wall Street’s opening bell.

From the first days of FXStreet back in 2000 until today, our website and company have expanded in size, content, services and languages. We are now around 30 people in the Barcelona office. Outside of Barcelona and all around the world, approximately 30 collaborators work with us as news editors, trading session leaders, advisers, translators and content assistants. FXStreet is a website visited by over 1 million users nowadays, traders who look for insightful information to make the best decisions in their daily activities.
The FXStreet success story begins in Barcelona, back in 2000, in a man’s mind who, in the first years of his professional career, was working in an emerging and promising market, Forex, producing information for a Spanish website. He lived in a country where, especially in those days, FX trading was practically unknown, but he gave birth to an adventurous project: creating an international FX website in English, the first of its kind, with information and tools for currencies traders.
His name is Francesc Riverola. He puts the idea together with his partners and companions – Miriam Pinatell (his wife) and Sergi Fernández – and the three of them build the prehistorical version of FXStreet. Miriam is the web designer, Francesc is in charge of advertisement and content and Setxi is the web developer. They are still the partners (“socios”) of the company nowadays.

FXStreet is made up of a team of approximately 60 people, 30 of them working from the head office in Barcelona. The rest of the staff is working from around the world: USA, Argentina, Indonesia, the UK or Russia, just to name a few. The multidisciplinary and multicultural team is at the image of the Forex Market: diverse, global and active around the clock. We’re presenting you here the Management Team.

What does Barcelona FXStreet’s office look like?
Curious to know where and how is our Barcelona’s office like? We have a few pictures for you!
As many of you probably know, FXStreet is a company based in Barcelona. At its beginnings, the company’s office was located in the Gracia neighbourhood (Upper side of the city). Since 2006, we are in a small pedestrian street that goes from the famous Ramblas to the Gothic Cathedral. Our office is on the second floor of a beautiful palace called “Palau Palmerola“, located in Portaferrissa, 7-9. This building preserves remains of the XVIII century and was rebuilt in 1857.
