Since my early days as a trader, I always turned to online forums for free knowledge, trading ideas, and social interaction. And obviously, I’m not alone because everyone has to start somewhere and usually a forum is a place where you’ll find most of what you need to start trading, from newbie-friendly strategies to expert guides and discussions. Forums can help traders and it’s important to be part of at least one, to keep up with the market pulse and the latest information.
Online Trading Forums – What Are The Alternatives
There are loads of reputable online forums to satisfy your social trading desires, albeit none of them are focused solely on binary options:
Forex Peace Army is one of the biggest forums focused on user reviews and scam busting. With most BO brokers changing names and rebranding as CFD/FX brokerages, you will need to know which ones are scams and which ones are legit.
Forex Factory – one of the oldest and most respected communities that focuses on trading discussions, strategies, and systems as well as trading journals and rookie talk, to name just a few topics.
Trade2Win – yet another OG when it comes to online trading forums. They focus on futures, algorithmic trading, cryptocurrencies, FX and you can even find some interesting discussions about coding if you look long enough.
Last but not least, you have the Babypips Forums, which are geared towards education, but also trading systems and daily Forex trades. Not to mention their main site has one of the best trading schools that’s available for free. All in all, it’s safe to say that you have a lot of options when it comes to online forums.
CommuniTraders (Forums) Is Going Offline
Yes, you’ve read that right! After several years online and constant work to keep the CommuniTraders forum alive, we’ve decided it’s time to move on. The main reason: we want to focus on what we do best. Online Broker Reviews and Scam busting.
Both of these require a lot of research and that takes a lot of time. Think about it: some scams actually appear legit at first, so we need to turn every stone, to look in every corner and find out evidence that we are dealing with a scam. And I am not talking about the obvious free trading robot that allegedly makes more than $1K every day on autopilot. Even a kid can see those are scams, but the more intricate ones are harder to catch and like I said, take more time to research.
Same with broker reviews: we want to give you accurate information and to check that everything we write in a review is true. Also, many brokers change their owning company, trading conditions, minimum investment requirements, deposit/withdrawal methods, etc. so we need to go back regularly and basically re-check the entire information. Again, this takes lots of time and since our main focus is on exposing scams, providing reviews and giving a place to traders to read and share their opinion about brokers, whether these are BO, CFD, crypto or others, we’ve decided to stop allocating resources to the Forums.
And besides all that, most of the content that’s available on CommuniTraders Forum can be also found on the main site:
