Live trading rooms can be beneficial for brand new traders that should be trading SIM. The problem with these rooms in the long run is you risk becoming reliant upon someone else's trade ideas/recommendations.

Trading is a very cognitive profession that involves essentially no communication with anyone really. Unless you trade with a full service broker. Beginner traders should learn about markets, setups, trading plans, etc. that may be offered from these rooms and move on to formulate their own strategy and plan and trade on their own. Take these trade rooms as a brief "seminar", learn and move on. And of course, avoid anything that offers guarantees that they'll make you tons of money. If you absolutely need someone to bounce ideas off of, I would recommend finding a trading partner that has the same (or near) strategy that you have that trades the same market(s).

You'll save yourself a lot of money as well...

Cheers,
PB
