CMS Forex, the US Forex broker, has recently launched its own Forex portal – fxtimes.com. While FXTimes.com is nothing to tell home about, it serves its purpose.

The biggest question of course is CPM price on other portals in comparison with CPM equivalent expense for maintaining broker’s own portal.
