I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Interesting.

How might I find chat rooms for forex and/or stock traders?

On the page you show in your screencast, http://www.ircforex.com/ there is a link

If you continue to have issues and want to use a web chat interface, then please use this. Where this points to http://www.ircforex.com/index.php/web-chat/.  I just tested and it seems to work.  If that is what David was referring to by internal chat not working, perhaps the issue fixed on it's own.  I was able to use http://www.ircforex.com/index.php/web-chat/.  Can you recheck your mIRC?

This video shows the trouble that I am also having connecting from the web link and from mIRC http://screencast.com/t/pUKTQuiMC0A

Even if we can't get to that chat, perhaps there are some other chats available for the financial markets. I'd like to know what is out there in terms of high popularity, bot restricted, chat rooms.

Back to http://www.ircforex.com, they are showing this list of clients that should work http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_Relay_Chat_clients.  However, if you can't use the web based chat, that would probably  mean you can't use any of the clients.  I was able to test the web link again and it worked.
