Forex MeetUp Group in Barcelona

MeetupSince February, organizes jointly with its social network monthly meetings with Forex traders in Barcelona through MeetUp. The first meeting took place at the end of February and there were 9 traders. Now they are 24 members and growing. Who would have thought that so many English-speaking Forex traders live in Barcelona? Every month they define a topic and one of the traders has to make a presentation for the others. A Q&A follows and then they all go in a bar to chat and have a drink. Next meeting is on June 6th and Yohay Elam will talk about the Euro and “why it is so high”.

CeFDex, the German market maker, is the sponsor of the next 3 Forex MeetUp Group meetings.
