Trader Talk is the latest from the world of online trading communities. It is an online forum dedicated to online traders and the one who wants to become one. It is a place for people with trading experience to share information, build friendships, make business contacts and develop strategies through a chat environment. Trader Talk is a place for those who are new to trading and have little or no experience at all to ask questions, get tips and discuss problems. One of the most important aspects of any online trading community is transparency in information and to ensure this Trader Talk is well maintained. Questions should be asked and answered freely, without fear of being identified as an individual looking to sell his/her services.
Many times you will see some online trading community members asking for help but many others will be afraid to ask and will not ask. The key is to be helpful and do not appear too eager to help out because this could be interpreted as’selling’. Being too eager can put you in a vulnerable position that may leave you vulnerable to fraud and even scams.
To avoid being scammed try to go through the profiles of those asking for help and then look at their chat history and if you can find any sign of someone using a fake identity or pretending to be someone else just remove them from your friend list. You will know it is a fake profile when you receive no responses from them. If you find someone who is being abusive towards other members then report them immediately. Do not allow this person to continue to harass other members of your online trading community.
