Today, I met in real life - the second person that I initially met through futures.io

I initially discovered @kevinkdog through futures.io and since have met him three times (2 Business, 1 purely Social). Today I met @jokertrader somebody I have had many conversations with in the The CL Crude-analysis Thread. I have also talked to @mattz - who I met here - on the phone many times - an extremely knowledgeable broker.

In addition I have met probably a dozen - maybe even 20 or more - other futures.io members through @kevinkdog - but I really met them through Kevin so they don't really count. There's probably also other people I have met here, that I also know in real life, but didn't know their futures.io handles. I've known many of the Trading Technologies people for a long time, but that was pre-futures.io, Patrick Rooney used to have an ID here but it seems to have morphed into the anonymous/ambiguous @TradingTech ID.

So the question is which future's.io members have you met in real life?

I met @DionysusToast (Peter Davies) when I was in Bangkok.

Amazing guy, amazing conversation over Indian food!

Incidentally he was also the first real life trader I met.

A truly inspiring persona.

Yet to meet anyone from FIO but wouldn't be apposed to an annual FIO meetup somewhere in the world!

I know a few other trading groups/forums do this and its quite successful.

Very true @SMCJB. I was morphed into @TradingTech. I'm still @Patrickrooney on Twitter though.

I met @Itchymoku for a beer near Philly in 2016. He was a nice guy. We chatted about trading and life. May he rest in peace
