Trader Talk is simply the shortened form of the more commonly known online investor forum or chat. It is essentially an online chat room devoted to Wall Street, where Wall Street investors trade stocks and share their experiences with other traders. Trader Talk was created so as to bring together investors an effective medium through which they can share their thoughts with each other and receive advice from others on investing. There are hundreds of thousands of traders across the country that utilize this medium, and have found it to be a valuable tool for learning and gaining insight into investment strategies. There are also many who do not use it, but must learn about it before they can start trading.
Trader Talk allows traders to easily voice out their opinions and share their ideas with other traders. You can also view chat transcripts of conversations, which gives you the ability to see what other people are commenting on so you can determine if there is a certain topic that interests you. This makes it a great way to find new companies to invest in. Many traders also use it as a way to make friends on the trading floor.
If you are a novice to trading or have just recently begun trading, Trader Talk is a great place to pick up new strategies and techniques. It is also a great place to ask questions you might have about trading. There is a large number of active users on Trader Talk, which means there are likely to be many more questions than answers. That’s why I recommend trying to go to one of the many forums available on the site before asking your own questions, as you will probably get a more useful answer there.
