Today, we kick off a series on Wall Street technology. We start with something pretty low-tech: chat rooms.

Banks and traders are now under investigation, accused of meeting in chat rooms to hatch schemes to manipulate markets.

Robert Friedman, Editor-at-Large at Bloomberg News, joins Marketplace’s Mark Garrison to discuss.
