Chat Rules


Be polite Every member deserves to be treated with respect. Positive and polite posts create a friendly and welcoming environment that all members will feel comfortable in. As a general rule you should think before posting. Sensible, well thought-out and legible posts help other members understand what is being explained.

Use the English language; Ensure that you’re writing and communicating in English only. Use grammar checking software, there are some great plugins you can use such as to help you.

Tag currencies Please use the $ sign when denoting currencies, for example, “$EURUSD”, “$EUR/USD”, “$eurusd” so users can understand which currencies you are talking about. This makes it easier for mobile users too.

Not allowed:

Do Not Use profanity or post inappropriate content We require that all content posted in the chat room is suitable for people of all ages, this includes words, videos and pictures. Any messages containing inappropriate content or profanity (including self-censored, automatically censored, acronyms and slang) will be removed.

Insult or flame other traders of the chat room. Similarly, do not post with the intention of provoking a reaction from fellow traders. This includes encouraging flame wars.

Instigation is not tolerated.

Spam A spam message is a message that provides no value to the discussion, or a thread that creates nuisance for others. The most common spam messages are posting “tl:dr;”, “+1”, “this”, posting image macros, and nothing but memes or images. Threads are considered spam when they are duplicates, or devoid of valuable content.

Sequential messages We ask that you try to avoid making multiple messages in a row within a few seconds of each other, if you can avoid it, as a courtesy to other users. For example, write your message in one go rather than like a text message which may be over a few lines, “Hi, what do you think will happen today?” Enter, “I suspect that $EUR/USD will …” Enter.
