Twitter can be a great way to publicize your trading, connect with other traders and it can be one of the best sources of Forex trading information…especially around news time. But it can also be hard to separate the noise from the legit information.
Here are the best Forex Twitter accounts that I find useful and/or entertaining. I hope it saves you hours of researching and gets your Twitter account started on the right foot.
To get the most up-to-date list of people I follow, take a look at my Twitter lists.
