IRC

I am searching for instrument specific trading rooms just to mess around.

I, also, just learned about IRC and have found three popular ones and need some advice on this technology.

I have no idea what it is about or the dangers involved.

Does anyone have experience with Internet Relay Chat and have some advice / preferences to service providers?

I found these three right off the bat. Which one ( or a different one) should I go with?


XChat: Multiplatform Chat Program

https://www.trillian.im/

mIRC: Internet Relay Chat client

Trillian appears to be the only one with a secure server.


Grazie for any willing to fill an old man in on what the kids are digging

mIRC is what I personally consider far superior , highly configurable and it's been around forever. Very stable and lightweight overhead on the resources. mIRC can run in secure / encrypted modes but the server / chatroom your in will determine that.

Be Patient and Trade Smart

Hi tderrick. Same here, I've used mIRC.

here's a financial chat server:
montreal.qc.ca.financialchat.com

then type '/list'

it should list about 39 channels. Some of them are private I believe.


There are also a few rooms with "Paltalk". under "Business and Finance" category.
you can join as "free" but then have to ignore a lot of ad stuff.

Well, we have futures.io (formerly BMT) chat too. But I'd suggest a separate room structure (or simulated virtual rooms maybe kind of
like TST's "pit" rooms" for trading various instruments) , etc. And maybe keep to elite area. (not really saying I'd use it myself, just suggesting a separate visual layout, maybe like the futures.io (formerly BMT) "arcade" room with separate room listings; stats on activity, people in room etc. )
