Barcelona, Spain, February 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- FXStreet, the leading Forex information website, is pleased to announce the results of the fourth edition of the Forex Best Awards that honors the best analysis, educational content and contributors on its website in 2013.
The nominees of the ten categories – a total of over 40 different contributors – were selected by the FXStreet Content team for their quality and popularity on the website.
This year again, besides the popular vote, a professional jury made its choice. This jury is made of members of the FXStreet Experts team and of professionals from other companies, with different backgrounds:
Jamie Coleman – FXBeat's Managing Editor
Yohay Elam – Founder of ForexCrunch
Ron Finberg – Editor at Forex Magnates
Antonio Jaureguizar – Partner at Noesis
Valeria Bednarik – Chief Analyst at FXStreet
Gonçalo Moreira, CMT – Content Advisor at FXStreet
Alberto Muñoz, PhD – Forex Analyst at FXStreet
There was no conflict of interest, as these members of the jury, if nominated, were not allowed to vote in that particular category.
The popular vote was collected through a survey that was available on every page of FXStreet website (http://www.fxstreet.com) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/FXstreet). Voters could choose only one nominee per category or the “don't know” option if they wished. A total of 3,158 valid votes were cast from the launching of the survey on February 7th until the closing on February 14th.
