In the chat we covered the basics of forex trading, its risks and the growing role of crypto currencies such as bitcoin in the forex scene. We also touched on recent Aussie dollar movements and what causes our dollar to become stronger or weaker. We also touched on the easyMarkets platform and how they make it easier for beginners to learn about forex trading.

Also on the show Adam, Liz and Marc talk about the soaring Aussie dollar, Australian funeral costs, the eight home loan rate rises some are expecting in the future, erroneous tweets from the ASX and video game pods for bored husbands.
