OANDA closes its Forex forum

Maria Nikolova

OANDA’s FX forum, which launched more than 20 years ago, gave FX traders a vehicle for sharing views, airing grievances, and learning from each other.

Clients of online trading company OANDA might have noticed a change regarding the company’s communication with FX traders. It’s been a fortnight since OANDA’s Forex forum has been deactivated.

In a way, this marks the end of an era, given that this forum has been around for more than 20 years.

In fact, OANDA hosted one of the longest-standing forex forums on the web. The forum, which launched in June 2000, gave FX traders a vehicle for sharing views, airing grievances, and learning from each other. Membership in the OANDA Forex Forum came with searchable access to diverse topic threads dating back to the very first forex forum posts.

The company has confirmed that it is permanently closing its Forex Forum.

OANDA explains: “The forum has been a gathering place for our clients since 2000 however, the popularity and usage have decreased significantly over the years. We know some of our users visit regularly and have made contributions to the development of our products, so we did not arrive at this decision lightly.

We thank you, the community, for all of your thoughtful comments, suggestions, and ideas over the years.

If you have questions about our products, please visit our help portal or email us at [email protected]

Notices for weekend maintenance and holiday trading hours will be posted elsewhere on our website”.
