Article #546) VTS Community members from around the world

Updated: Dec 30, 2020


VTS Community,


In a blog post a few days ago I showed a chart of a world map and left it as a little teaser for something I'd circle back to. Many of you came up with some interesting guesses as to what it was showing, and a few of you even got it right. Since there's always so much curiosity about VTS and where all the members are from around the world, let's talk about that map.



The red highlighted areas show every country that active VTS Community members are from. The grey areas, we'll see if we can get them on board soon.


Active members from 56 countries worldwide now!


Now it should come as no surprise since we do exclusively trade the US markets, a little over half of our members are from the United States. And since I am a Canadian, I suppose that's the reason Canada is the 2nd most represented.


* 55.3% of VTS members are from the United States


But that's a pretty skewed image so we can also just remove the United States and you can see a little more even distribution among the rest of the world.
