2004 – 2008
Fair Economy’s story begins in March 2004. The company was originally named “Forex Factory”, as forexfactory.com, a small forum for forex traders, was the only website it operated. An economic calendar was added to the website in the second year, and its breakthrough design started to attract a following of professional traders.
The calendar’s popularity spilled traffic into the forums, and groups of traders started forming bonds and sharing information with a level of professionalism rarely found in digital formats. This had a snowball effect, and the network of traders grew fast.
Fair Economy soon scaled up to a legitimate enterprise, and opened a small office in San Diego, California. A few key hires were made, and advertising contracts were landed with the industry’s leading brokers. This would fuel company growth for years to come.
2009 – 2013
Fair Economy continued to build out its team and development operations in 2009. For the next few years, the team would work relentlessly to roll out a suite of products that would change the way forex information was delivered-to and consumed-by traders. These products eventually influenced the entire forex industry, and established Fair Economy's position as a financial innovator.
The company soon outgrew its office space, and established an official headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Meanwhile, the Forex Factory website became one of the twenty most visited financial websites in the world, and was featured in various financial publications including Stocks&Commodities and FX Week.
2014 – 2018
A new stage was set as the team began planning to expand the company's market coverage beyond foreign-exchange. The new product offering would embrace crypto, energy, and metals markets, and over a year was spent building the Fair Economy team and operations to support the expansion.
The launch of the Crypto Craft, Energy EXCH, and Metals Mine websites created a new landscape for market information, and showed the world a better way to organize and deliver information to traders.
Future in progress...
