I just discovered that Joseph had passed away last month (Feb 6, 2018). He and I dated/lived together for a couple years. This was his favorite place to spend time, chat with friends, share his thoughts and ideas, relieve stress and most importantly to learn more about his passion in life - daytrading... it was an integral part of his life and I'd thought I would share the news with all of you...
If you'd like to see the obituary, Google Joseph Bach Berwyn, PA

Thanks,
Dayna

Oh my - this is tragic news. Thanks Dayna for letting the forum know.


I have interacted with Joseph a few times over the last couple of years and I enjoyed his irony and sense of humour.

It is really a sudden and unexpected loss.

Sad news - was always appreciating Itchy's inputs and his sense of humor.

Of course trading for him was not core business but happiness.

Happy journey Itchymoku! Travel well!!

We will not forget...

It's been a year and I thought it time to bump this and give guys a chance to reflect again on the crazy way that life comes at us sometimes. Itchy and I would chat often. I loved his wit. He was/is the funniest guy that ever posted here. Of course none of us had any idea. My biggest take away right now is that we could all be more aware that every day is a chance to be a friend.

Fare thee well Itchy.

Hi all, I knew Joey many years ago and am so sad to hear this news. I found this post and remembered all the times he would tell me about how he loved trading and talking on this forum. If anyone could PM or email me and let me know what happened I'd really appreciate it. Sending my strongest condolences and best wishes for all who knew him.

I'm not sure that anyone here really knows much about what happened. Itchy was a great guy, always willing to chat and have fun in the forum.

I think there is some information in this thread, but not likely anything new that you did not know.

Still rememerJoe from good interactions here. Took myself some years of timeout for very good reasons. Googeled his Nick, a moving average system with future predictability in strong trends. RIP and farewell!

Thanks for informing.

I saw this thread some time ago, shortly after it opened, but I thought that for several reasons, it would be better to say something a while later.

Apart from how really hard it is to lose the relationship with someone close to you or your circle, it is harder to see that a flight has been cut in full launch to the World, with all that that means for him and for everyone. It is (was) a knock.

I am not a person of words for every occasion, rather for special occasions, and this (that, when I saw this thread) was / is.

Joseph (Itchymoku) gave off a special roll, very sensitive, perhaps that was a key factor in the depths of his being. Then we are missing it here. Be happy where you are and lend us a hand, what is missing.

He wrote me a PM in 2014 interested in my avatar and we crossed a few PMs. I realized that; he was / is a very sensitive soul.

It is not necessary to extend myself (I can't do much either).

A hug to everyone and especially his family and relatives.
