    I assume there are a couple good "LIVE" chat rooms out there for the indexes, es,er2, ym.

    Any recommendations? Do not want Woodies, i do not do Japanese candlesticks, strictly bar charts. Next year i am looking to set up a chat with audio and maybe video with a couple of friends to teach them a few trades and for all of us to make money since the only way to learn is to shoot real bullets.

    But in the mean time i would like to check out a couple chat rooms. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    How about video conferencing, is it mainstream yet?

    Best ones are private or invitational only...yet free.

    However, the public rooms will help you see how one is moderated/manage to give you tips on things to do and not to do :cool:

    Yet, you mention your going to be using audio and video...

    The new beta Yahoo! Messenger (free) or one of the pricey video conferencing programs will do nicely as long as those participating is using a fast connection and has a high resolution webcam or a digital video camcorder (preferred method) that can be used as a webcam.


    There are some very good video conferencing programs on the market (will cost you a pretty penny) or virtual offices...

    Worth the cost since you plan on teaching/mentoring other traders via online instead of in person.

    Yet, I strongly recommend you consider teaching/mentoring in person and then use the online video conferencing stuff as follow-up or support...

    Such will avoid a lot of typical pitfalls of teaching/mentoring another trader.


    Google will provide you a deep list of choices that may not be mentioned in the above link.

    Thanks very much for the comprehensive answer....:)
  4. Your welcome.

    If you decide to use a video conferencing/collaboration software...

    PM me which one you selected to let me know how you like the program so far.

    I'm currently in the market for a good collaboration program and the below article is most likely where I'll start my research into something to buy...
