Why Group Chat Is an Indispensable Tool for the Leading Trader

traders tools a group chat service

RumbleTalk’s primary goal is to connect digital communities, a goal that has been demonstrably achieved  in the trading community.

Picture the scene – you are working at your computer on your latest lesson plan.

Right now you have a few dozen loyal followers, but you’re hoping for more in the next few months. You visit your favorite trading blog for inspiration when suddenly, you come across a post that is strangely familiar.

As you compare it to your own content your worst fears are realized – it is unquestionably yours. A guide that you spent hours brainstorming, researching, writing and updating for your paying customers has been stolen from your supposedly secure traders site.

Certain alarming questions come to mind: if your followers can access your content for free on another site, why would they stick with you? Why should new followers join you?

The owner of the site might agree to removing your stolen content this time, but who knows where else it might show up. And what is to stop it happening again?

That’s where RumbleTalk comes in.

A Traders’ Tool

RumbleTalk can give you the security you need and much more besides. Our traders’ tool grants you access to a space in which you can instantly and confidentially reach your followers whatever the medium. In the example above your work was stolen, and hours of effort were spent trying to contain the situation.

By securing your chat, RumbleTalk frees you to invest (pun intended) all of your energy into providing the best content possible.

That means enriching your words with technical graphs, spreadsheets and presentations to provide a deeper context in an industry where understanding is the key to success.

Technology is often accused of pulling us apart, but RumbleTalk can bring you and your followers closer together with a sense of immediacy and collaboration that is usually only found in the boardroom, and which will keep your followers coming back for more.

Veterans

With RumbleTalk, a trading veteran can host lessons for hundreds of followers at once. Text, images, and even video and audio recordings can all be used to explain why one stock shows promise and why another should be avoided in a nuanced and comprehensive way.

The group chat can be accessed via a provided URL or it can be embedded into any or all pages of your website – whatever works for your community. You can tier your service, providing the most insight to trusted paying members in a private group chat in an exclusive, password-protected area of your website.

The problem above has been solved, and now no one can access your content without payment and permission. Many traders’ chats allow access to anyone regardless of their experience or motivations, but with RumbleTalk, no one enters the group chat without your say-so.

If for whatever reason there is someone in the chat who you no longer want there, you as administrator can suspend or remove them from the chat with the click of a button.

Finally, your insider knowledge and years of experience can be done justice with a slick and state of the art traders’ chat, one that will swiftly justify your price in the minds of your followers.

You will wonder how you ever operated without a group chat. All group chats are hosted on our servers, so you never need to worry about server performance or bandwidth compromising your service. Our chat rooms are protected by end-to-end SSL/TLS encryption technology, so you can rest assured that no one is listening in. In short – we’ve got you covered.

Always Remain in Control

RumbleTalk enables you to host a group chat and talk to all of your followers at once, but it also allows you to hold private conversations with select people as well.

These conversations come with all the benefits of a group chat, as well as the option to launch a video or audio call. You might want to issue a warning to a select user for inappropriate behavior, or provide additional resources to a particularly inquisitive follower – video and audio calls are ideal for when you want clear and direct one-on-one communication.

These private conversations are just as secure as group chats, the data transfers encrypted by WebRTC technology. We understand that ironclad security above all else is paramount in your industry

We might be (slightly) biased, but there really are no downsides to having a group chat for the leading trader. RumbleTalk allows you to communicate effectively to your followers and ensures that you are always in control. Whether you want to speak privately to a user, or provide guidance to hundreds – RumbleTalk can help, whatever your needs. Get in touch to find out more.

How Traders’ Chat Can Revolutionize the Way You Trade

group traders' chatEvery professional trader today has his or her own unique toolbox loaded with every traders’ tool necessary for them to make the best decisions when playing the market. But no matter how fine-tuned and well-developed those tools are, the fact remains that with each trader comes only one set of eyes.

The stock market is dynamic and often volatile, and can change in an instant. Traders need to stay up-to-date on every shift, breakout, and bounce which may affect how he or she chooses to invest. This is what makes communication and networking with like-minded traders critical for every trader, investor, and broker who hopes to remain financially secure and profitable.

Live Chat and Its Impact on Live Trading

Since the widespread use of the Internet, there has been a major shift in trading. From stock markets to futures to commodities, the vast majority of stock trading action occurs online.

But the dawn of the Internet has not only made trading for investors, brokers, and traders easier—it has also changed the way we can communicate and exchange information.

With real-time chat rooms like RumbleTalk, global traders can communicate, contribute information, and share graphs and other analytical data amongst one other. Trading gurus can also share with others what they are buying and selling, and set up the option to have followers pay to follow and potentially imitate what they do. This means traders can receive greater insight into the market and feel reassured that the investments they made were the best for their financial goals.

Paid vs. Free Live Trading Chat Rooms

When exploring different live traders’ chat options, you will find paid rooms and free rooms. Free chat rooms are a tempting option for the obvious reason that you do not need to invest money into them. But that lack of upfront investment could end up costing you more in the long run.

Free chat rooms often do not have a built-in filter, meaning that anyone can join the group. So not only can spammers, bashers, and trolls disrupt the group chat, but also, people who have vastly different motivations for their investments and dissimilar goals altogether can get in and take things well off course. This wastes traders’ time and can cause them to miss out on an opportunity to invest or protect their financial assets.

By choosing a paid live traders’ chat like RumbleTalk for your site, you can:

• Enable Live Trading Conversation 24/7: RumbleTalk allows traders to speak freely amongst themselves. Upon signing into RumbleTalk, users are provided with a group chat code which they are then able to communicate exclusively with other traders who share the same trading and investment goals. Moreover, users also have the option of creating a “secured” room and can disable features such as auto invite, the “Invite Friends” button, and guest login. All traders have the option to log in from various platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.
• Engage in Live Video Chat: RumbleTalk can accommodate live one-on-one video calls among participants. This gives traders the opportunity to have deeper and more engaging conversations amongst one another. It also gives trading gurus the option to engage with their paid followers in a private and secured environment.
• Share Live Trading Charts and Graphs: Users can share up-to-the-minute trading charts, graphs, PDFs presentations, Excel files, and other documentation with everyone in the group chat.

All participants can also share YouTube and Vimeo videos by copying and pasting the video URL into the chat. These videos can be used to explain concepts and can be used to host Q&A sessions with participants.

Finally, RumbleTalk also gives users the ability to create their very own podcasts. This is not only a valuable tool for traders, but also, it gives trading gurus a way to establish themselves as a leader in the trading industry as they can then easily impart valuable knowledge to other traders online.

Creating an Online Community

By enabling traders to connect over RumbleTalk, they can take advantage of the knowledge and expertise of other like minded traders. This gives them the opportunity to learn new trading strategies, receive seasoned advice on how to tweak their existing systems, and gives them a trusted support network to back them up when times get tough.

HTML5 Chat: why waste time on a native group chat app?

html5 chat room embed

Does anyone remember Flash? If a movie featuring human butterflies and a theme song by Queen popped into your head, don’t feel bad — the movie will probably remain relevant to humanity long after Flash player has dissolved into obscurity.

To be honest, I didn’t actually hate Flash player. What I did hate was having to constantly mess with plug-ins and updates every time I loaded an online program. And while it’s still relevant, the reason you probably thought of Sam Jones when I asked about Flash is because the rest of the internet got tired of it as well.

It was a Dodo whose viability was already debatable by the time it met its end at the hands of a hungry sailor called HTML5. But certain elements of the web-based programming community have been surprisingly sluggish in adopting the new markup language.

This is somewhat vexing, and particularly so in the case of online chat communities. For one, the embeddable image, video and audio options native to HTML5 make the language extremely programmer-friendly.

It is also the closest thing out there to a universally compatible web-based markup language, whether between browsers or between web and mobile platforms. Of course, these advantages ultimately funnel through to end users who choose an HTML5 chat platform.

So what’s the holdup?

Well, a lot has happened to online chat in past decades, much of which has surrounded the transition to mobile use. Today, the most popular mode of execution is through use of a native mobile application. Not surprisingly, this trend has led to a massive proliferation of application-based chat and audio-visual communication. Mobile users today carry around numerous chat apps — all downloaded to their devices and all of which accomplish at least marginal variations of practically the same thing. Considering the fact that once upon a time Comic Chat was a revolutionary idea, today’s mobile-app based approach seems like a climax in consumer convenience and options.

But is it, though?

The “mobile site” practice was once the recommended way to go if you wanted to access secure information from a mobile device. Some online banking and other commercial entities still do this, and even Facebook will direct you to a mobile site if you use your phone’s web browser. Thing is, you probably haven’t seen it since you downloaded that “trusty” native app. Use of these mobile sites has gradually faded under the growing cloud of readily downloadable native applications.

This should come as a bit of a surprise, given that it translates to a big waste of potential from an HTML5 perspective.

Don’t get me wrong; mobile apps run fine and are frequently updated to eliminate bugs and optimize performance. But they nevertheless present a host of avoidable issues.
Good example: my own love/hate relationship with Facebook’s iPhone apps. For going on about a week now, I have been unable to (re)download the messenger app after our most recent “get out and never come back!” episode.

Why is this happening to me? Is it me? Is it the phone? Was it something I said? Not a damn clue. And frankly I don’t care. I just want my baby to come back, and nothing I’ve tried has worked.
But you know what does work, right now as I sit and write this blog? Facebook’s mobile site, messages and all, minus the insanity of forcing me to download a separate chat application.
Bit of an extreme example? Maybe, but it underscores a point: why waste time downloading, updating and occasionally tossing your phone in anger across the room over applications that could work just as well if not better on a mobile platform?

The phenomenon of downloadable apps is a bit of an oddity altogether considering the vast amount of space and memory which apps fill and use for functions that a simple web browser can readily accomplish.
Case in point: what really angers me about my little predicament is that you actually need two apps to fully utilize Facebook on an iPhone, of all things.
This is an epic fail on Facebook’s part.
Indeed, “need” is a misnomer because you don’t “need” the app. You just want it enough to think you need it.

Here are two “little things” that make Facebook Messenger so addictive:
• audio-video
• push notifications

You want to know why Facebook’s mobile site doesn’t have these features? Because they didn’t add them — period. Let that sink in for a second. They are fully able to develop a universally device- and browser-compatible HTML5 chat feature on their mobile site, complete with all the embedding features available to you on your laptop or desktop, but they just haven’t done it. For some reason, Facebook wants you to download two separate applications onto potentially the most advanced consolidation device ever invented. And while I have just about had it with my iPhone, it’s not Apple making me hate my life. If there’s one thing that can be said about Apple, its that they take the “everything you need, right here” approach to product design. They don’t always do it perfectly (or well, for that matter), but they do it every time. It’s Facebook’s apps which are screwing me here.

So, why am I making such a big stink over this?

We should be getting tired of downloading, updating, and otherwise pulling hair out of our head over apps that shouldn’t be on your device in the first place. The only reason we still grab items out of cyberspace is because marketers know how to capitalize on our simian instinct to stuff our cheeks full of figs so that the other monkeys can’t have the ones we want.

That world is gone. It’s over. There’s no need for everyone to have their own downloaded program because that same program is still available to everyone regardless of whether someone else is using it. There’s better things we can be doing with our time.

That’s what HTML5 is all about. It is based on an entirely new kind of mindset, used by a new generation of programmers, demanded by a new generation of consumers.

Think about it this way: which of the following would you hope is going through a programmer’s head:
• how can I spend days, weeks or even months reinventing its embedding features when someone has already automated somewhere else?
• How can I spend my time doing new stuff now that the old stuff is already built in?

In this sense, time is money, and money is quality. And its not just about the cost to the developer. It’s also about the user’s time and experience.

Chat Room Easy Settings

Our designers at RumbleTalk understand this all too well and for that reason have chosen an HTML5 as a platform for our web/mobile chat, allowing us optimize its plugin features and compatibility. RumbleTalk’s native features allow our program to run on less complex code, which translates to faster loading and fewer errors, and allows our users unprecedented control over the chat settings.

Group chat settings

The native HTML5 chat embedding and compatibility options allow our clients to easily adjust settings. The built-in video/audio playback as well as other plugins allow users to intuitively tailor the online chat experience to the type of hosting they wish to present, whether it’s social stock trading, community engagement, online events, teaching or radio show hosting — all customizable to ensure that the user can create a personalized environment.

Just as importantly, our HTML5 chat platform is web-based, and works as one single program without the complexity and performance issues associated with having to “make” the program’s elements compatible with each other.

Our program, of course, is fully browser cross-compatible with all major web browsers, which in today’s market should be a given. To that point, one of the biggest advantages is the fact that HTML5 chat allows optimal functionality for mobile site access, with compatibility across the board of mobile devices. This means consistently optimized performance from one type of device to another, all without unnecessary downloaded applications. You simply access the full program on your mobile device on virtually any mobile web browser.

Hopefully my gripe about downloaded programs is a little clearer now. There’s really no reason to carry a phone full of applications which can only be used via internet access.
Now, does that mean I am going to uninstall Cookie Jam in silent protest until I can access the game on a website? God, no. In fact, I count on having the game accessible and functional on my device specifically for the times that I don’t have internet.

Likewise with music, videos, pictures and documents. You know, the stuff that has any business taking up space and memory on your device. Everything else should be cloud-based and simple. From the perspective of online chat services, for which consumers will undoubtedly demand more complex and dynamic features, this is what HTML5 is all about.
