Yesterday I had a chance to take a glimpse at Forex Pros‘s Google Analytics report and I was surprised to see that for some time now they are enjoying more than 100k visitors a day (except weekends of course).
There is an ongoing battle right now between sites like fxstreet, forexpros, mataf and forexfactory to some extent (it’s a forum not a portal) for the global forex traffic leadership. While latest figures which Arnaud pulled out of doubleclick indicate that forexpros is way behind fxstreet (~2.25m and ~1.5m visitors in May respectively) the figures I see indicate that the two rivalling portals may be on almost the same traffic levels. Perhaps that comparison didn’t count all Forex Pros sites.
It is important to note that Forex Pros is not just a forex portal but also provides Stock and CFDs information meaning fxstreet is probably still the leader in forex content however Forex Pros may be bigger in absolute traffic figures. It would be interesting to see same comparison a few months from now.
This is what Forex Pros had to say about their traffic:
The Forex Pros network of financial web portals for the currency and futures markets has surpassed 100,000 visits a day!
The network, which comprises 21 websites that provide users with key information on the financial markets, has also added a host of new features to its wide variety of resources and tools for trading.
Among the portals’ new features is the pairing of charts on currency crosses and economic indicators with breaking news stories written by Forex Pros’ in-house journalists
Forex Pros has also added sections detailing the components of major indices in the global equity markets. These display historical data, charts and technical analysis, in addition to other useful tools.
Another key addition to the network is a section on futures indices, which displays real-time data on the world’s major stock exchanges, according to CFDs rates.
Furthermore, Forex Pros has begun offering market quotes as part of its highly popular webmaster tools. These enable webmasters to build a customized set of market quotes and charts for their websites.
