ABOUT ME

Hi, thanks for visiting my website.  My name is Dr Krissy Jones and I’m a wife, mother of three and a serial, award winning entrepreneur who has founded and managed projects in retail, finance and media. I hold a Doctorate Degree in Business Administration, specializing in strategy & innovation. I am also an experienced forex trader, author and founder of several different companies including a successful retail company with over $11m annual turnover, a regulated international forex broker, a regulated cryptocurrency exchange and Investment company.  I have also created a forex services media site called The Forex Library, where I am an author of educational articles and news related to forex trading. 

My career started in the care sector where I worked as the youngest ever care home manager at age 21, following this I next trained as a teacher, where I worked as a lecturer in a higher education college. I then went on to set up and grow two successful training companies, one of which I founded with a $2,000 loan and grew to the value of $11m in under two years.  The company employed over 50 people and was in the Sunday Times best company to work for list. 

After this, I became involved in the forex industry through an interest in investing. I am a self taught trader who has been trading forex since 2017, with a particular interest in fundamental and technical analysis. This has enabled me to make successful trading decisions and pass my knowledge and trading ideas onto others through articles that I write for a forex news site.  My experiences in trading and as a business woman have led me to the position I am in today as a successful entrepreneur with business interests in a number of fields.  However, I have had many ups and downs and experienced many struggles to get there, but these have only made me stronger and given me the ability to get through any hard times by using mistakes as a positive learning tool.

I am a philanthropist with a particular passion in helping families and children who are living in poverty. I am on the board of two charities, the founder of The Trilogy Trust Foundation and volunteer at St Francis Centre, LA. I also fundraise for and sponsor families and children living in poverty. In England I used to be a voluntary mentor for The Princes Trust where I enjoyed supporting young people with their new business ventures.

Outside of work, I enjoy fashion, fitness and socializing! I live in Los Angeles County with my husband, three children, and Taffy our dog.

The Forex Library delivers up to the minute breaking news, real time coverage of events that effect the forex markets and market analysis to forex traders who trade commodities, crypto, indices, forex and equities. The vision from its founders was to also create an extensive, news worthy platform for Forex traders which caters to all types of traders, from beginners to experts. 

Cryptocurrency Exchange- I created a fully licensed and regulated cryptocurrency exchange that allows retail and commercial clients to buy, sell, exchange and swap over 5000 cryptocurrencies at extremely competitive rates. Users can also store, send and receive funds safely and securely in regulated custody. Customers have access to numerous globally renowned and highly liquid exchanges and trading platforms, ensuring the most attractive pricing options that offer a competitive edge.

Family Adoption- Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my family and I sponsor around 10-20 families across Los Angeles who are living in poverty or are unhoused. At Thanksgiving, we donate food boxes so they can enjoy a hot Turkey dinner and give out cash donations. We then obtain their Christmas wish lists for themselves and their children. 
At Christmas, we purchase each family member gifts from their wish lists, which we wrap up and deliver to their homes along with another box of Christmas food as well as cash donations.
