IQ Option boasts hundreds of thousands of traders. It’s one of the platforms that’s designed to meet trader’s needs. Many of the platform’s improvements are allegedly made based on trader suggestions. One quick way to share your ideas with IQ Option staff is through their chats and support feature. But that’s not all you can do with this feature as you’ll find out in this article.

Overview of the IQ Option chats and support feature

This feature is found on the right hand panel of your trading account. You can access it on both the practice and real accounts. However, only real account holders can message chat members on this feature.

The chat and support feature allows traders to interact with each other directly. However, there are rules to adhere to. And in order to be allowed to communicate with other members, you must agree to these.

If you want to chat with other traders, you should click on one of the 4 chat threads provided. Here’s a brief explanation of these threads.

The English chat thread is general in nature. Here traders in all markets will come together to share their signals or even share tips. It’s a good place to find top traders who regularly offer their tips.

The forex chat is dedicated to fx traders. If you’re particularly interested in trading fx, this is the place to find tips on which pairs to trade at a particular time.

The crypto chat is dedicated to cryptocurency traders. This thread is the one with the least activity among the 4.

If you’re interested in stocks, the stocks chat is a great place to hang out.

Benefits of the IQ Option chats and support

If you’re new to trading, this feature makes a good place to identify top traders in the markets. Let’s take the forex chat below. The chat currently has 12 participants. However, take a look at their conversation. Some traders are explaining what they’re currently trading. This should give you a hint about which markets you should consider exploring.

The chats and support feature also comes in handy when you want to find a mentor. It’s easy to identify traders who consistently make profits. You can politely ask for tips and signals once you identify top traders.

But note that IQ Option doesn’t permit giving away personal information on the chats. This could lead to your account getting banned.

Your objective when using the chats feature it to find the time intervals when there are many online participants. This allows you to get tips and signals early enough. And if you have anything to share, do so. This earns you the goodwill of other members.

The next thread is the suggest an idea. IQ Option values input from traders. If you have an idea about how to improve the Online trading platform (or what they should chuck out), this is the place to share it.

Use the chat and support feature with caution
There are many advantages to using the chats and support feature. However, breaking the rules set can have you banned. But this should be the least of your worries.

The chat feature could be a good place to find mentors, tips and signals. It’s also a den of scammers. It’s not unusual to come across “successful” traders giving away fake signals. Some will also go to the extent of offering a helping hand in a bid to get access to your trading account. Luckily, the IQ Option admin and moderators are known to keep an eye on each chat thread’s activities and flag down such people.

However, you should remember that IQ Option will not be held liable for losses you incur based on advice given on the chat rooms. Your only line of defense therefore is being cautious when interacting with members in the chat and support feature.

If you come across tips and signals, always do your technical analysis before using them. It’s better to miss out on a trading opportunity than use signals that will end up losing you money.

That’s all about the IQ Option chats and support feature. Be sure to drop by every once in a while and apply the tips I’ve just shared with you.
