Video chatrooms

In both the Libor-rigging scandal and the unfolding foreign exchange-fixing investigations, traders' use of chat rooms to exchange gossip, insults and market-moving tidbits seems to have played a key role.

For the big banks, the most likely conclusion is tighter monitoring of chat rooms, and more focus on business-only conversations, according to Rundle, rather than the kind of looser, friendly talk which led to cringeworthy observations like the Icap broker who promised a Libor-setting colleague "a Ferrari".

They may also consider confining chat rooms to internal users.

Chats are fun; video and audio chats, in particular, can help pass time and bond with your loved ones.

All major chat platforms have built-in support for audio and video but most of them don’t support viewing and chatting with multiple people at the same time.

Control over the crowd helps keep the conversation civil in a multi-person chatroom.

Paltalk will even run in the background of your device if you want to listen to your favorite room or talk to a friend while you read emails.

It would make the service better for you and other members.

The details required aren’t much; a few words about you, an image, gender and location will do.

Now that some of the world's biggest banks, including JPMorgan Chase and Credit Suisse are discussing banning traders from chat rooms, could this mark a return to the days where most business was conducted over the phone – or even over lunch?
