This is a little guide about the first steps for new users at


This should be the first place to check. There you can set your privacy preferences.
We strongly recommend to change your real name by a Nickname, easier to remember and first protection to your privacy. It can be changed in the "full name" field
It is also the place where you can change your "photo", that is the avatar that will be shown in all your comments and posts in the network. We encourage you to change it , be creative ;)

One of the major concerns from a user point of view.
Here you can control what activity will be shown in your page ("My page" main menu link) and who can post there.

This is the place to set what kind of notifications you will receive by email. By default there are almost all options checked and this can be a little annoying fulling your inbox with unwanted emails. Set your preferences at your convenience.

My Page
Control how the appearance of your page will be. Most of these features can be directly changed in My Page. We will explain it there.

If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, here you can synchronize it with you ForexStreet one. You can use many other sites credentials to log in into the network.

My Page

This is your personal page at Here you can see all the activity you have requested to be informed about. It is also the place where you can be updated about your friends activity.
You can personalize it with your own style, move the applications by dragging (clicking in the title bar) and dropping them wherever you want and edit their preferences (edit in the app title bar).


In the bottom right corner of your screen you can see the chat bar. There are 3 buttons, the triangle one is to slide up the chat room, the 2 squares one is to detach the chat in a new resizable window and the last one is to connect/disconnect .
There is also a chat link in the main menu to go directly to the page containing the chat.

Groups are the pages to find members with the same interests as you. Any member can add a group and invite others to join it. There are private and public groups. To join a private group you have to be accepted by the creator.

All members are allowed and encouraged to post their interest in blog posts. A blog post is a public article to share knowledge, doubts and interests with the community.

Hi Peter and Sundaram.

We have been forced to change the main chat to the new html 5 version. Ning has disrupted support for the old chat, and they can switch off the old version without notification from May 1st on. We have forwarded to Ning all the complains you sent us and we are also looking for a chat to integrate in the network, but is hard to do it maintaining a single sign on and unifying administration.

Thanks for your comments.
