Within the Pelican network, anyone can set up their own group(s). Whether you want to set up a group amongst your work colleagues or friends to discuss a given market or trading in general, they are simple to set up.
If you are an experienced trader and want to set up a group to pass on your trading knowledge or a mentor looking to migrate your clients into one easy-to-manage platform and discussion forum with a subscription model, Pelican caters to your needs.
You can start a group with as many users as you like on Pelican. Groups are great for passing on knowledge, chatting to colleges or a friend, and if you're a trader looking to migrate your clients you can set up rage or subscription type groups...
Public groups: anyone can join and comment
Private groups: hidden from the activity page, it's invite only
Spectator only groups: anyone can join, but only an admin can comment
Paid for groups: a subscription based group you have to pay for access
