When you running a business and you want customers, and possible customer asks for statements, business owner has two options, one will most likely get You as a client and the other is not to get you as a client. If you a good trader and selling your services to the public, you should be proud of your accomplishments and be open on your past trading. Long ago I tried chat rooms cause of the boredom, never found any to be profitable, matter of fact, I was either asked to leave during trials when my calls were better than people who had service or was offered a job. I can't trade any more concentrating fully and do a chat room, just way too stressful. If you are trading size, let me tell you, you watching ticks when you scalp, not like I put on a trade and go make a Dagwood (for those too young, very huge sandwich). I just think it will take you longer to learn to trade unless the room is geared for you to learn and trade. But I have never seen any really good traders mess with chat room services for any long duration, dealing with public-usually not profitable traders- just complain about everything. Plus, you have to be there everyday, it becomes a real grind to call out signals and knowing most clients will change signals.
