iiTRADER was founded by Rich Ilczyszyn in the fall of 2011. Rich’s decadeof experience as a floor trader and then screen broker in Chicago, where he ran one of the largest brokerage desks focusing on the energy, agriculture and precious metals sectors allowed iiTRADER to quickly hit the ground running. Rich’s vision of taking futures and commodities mainstream came to fruition when he helped create and star in CNBC’s hit show “Futures Now”. Sadly, Rich passed away in the fall of 2014 and though he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on.
