2011′s Top 11 FX Traders on Twitter

Trading can sometimes get pretty boring… or lonely. Maybe you’re just waiting for a chart pattern formation, a mechanical signal, or a fundamental news release. Maybe it’s 1am and everyone in your house is sleeping. Or maybe nobody else in your social circle understands what in the world forex trading is!

It’s during these times when you need other traders to talk to. You need trade ideas, trading insights, or just another human being to keep you sane and tell you that you are not alone.

Enter Twitter. Now, enter BabyPips.com. Finally, enter YOU, the sociable (at least online) trader.

If you’re not following these FX gurus, then you’re NOT getting the most value from your Twitter account! Following the right people can give you valuable real-time information on current forex news, events and ideas!
