Facebook Trader Talk App – Can it Get You Trading Stock Market Hours Ahead of Others?
Traders have been talking about the new Facebook application Trader Talk for quite a while now. It’s a Facebook chat client that allows traders to actually get into discussions with people from other brokers, their banks, investment companies and the like. It enables traders to post their questions, ask questions and get answers from people they’re interested in. The company says it will be available to everyone in March.
So what can we expect? To start with, this application will allow users to access the chat client from any browser, even if you are not logged in to Facebook. You will also be able to view chat history and receive notifications when someone you want to talk to has joined or left a conversation. As mentioned, this application will probably only work for brokers who have an account linked with Facebook.
This application has some advantages and disadvantages. First, it can be used by anyone, anywhere, anytime and obviously it increases the chances of getting into contact with other traders. Another is the fact that people can now see your information on Facebook; whether it’s about your bank, financial institution, investment firm or whatever. It might also give people access to your bank’s social network accounts, so it’s not private anymore, you just need to use your own details. What makes this application exciting is that the interface is clean and intuitive so it’s easy to use even by new traders.
