Investors Underground Chat Room Updates & New Features

by | Feb 27, 2017

The Investors Underground chat room is one of the main tools within our community. This chat room serves as a scanner, news source, trade idea generator, and so much more.

Investors Underground Chat Room

Earlier this year, we launched our own custom developed chat so we could continue to make the Investors Underground chat room the best on the web. Some of the basic features include:

  • Private messaging
  • Audio Alerts
  • Live Chat History
  • User Filtering (Only see posts from certain members)
  • Efficient Resource Usage (meaning it won’t slow down your computer)

We’ve rolled this chat updated out to our three chat rooms (Momentum, OTC, and Swing) and continue to add new features every month. Here are some of the exciting new features we’ve added in the past few months.

  1. TripleV was here learning. Thank you, Nate!

  2. Great features, Thanks Nate.

  3. Been in the chat for a week and love it. Been watching, taking notes, and learning!

  4. Yes, came a long way since i began interacting in IU around 2014, 15…This is really not only nice to see, but I’d say distinguishable because it illustrates the manner continually improving as a cultural aspect of IU. Nate, I really wanted to speak to that as a clear indication of what and why a place whose culture is evolving is, what I’d think, would be why any other learning , learned, or advanced trader might see as evidence for finding a good location to thrive at and arrive at. But again, just something I see, imho…

  5. These Chat room features, WOW! even the Float info. IU 2nd to none, great job!
