Top 8 Forex Trading Youtube channels

With the advent of YouTube, those who are seeking educational videos have more choice than ever. And forex traders, both beginners and experienced, have within their grasp a whole world of content to learn from.

It has never been easier to learn a new skill or improve an existing one through the internet. While some prefer reading and others prefer to watch videos, combining both can be an effective method in improving your understanding of a topic.

In this article, we outline the best YouTube channels to follow, for both novice and seasoned investors.

Finance Illustrated

Finance Illustrated is an up-and-coming YouTube channel that provides free resources for traders and investors, including broker reviews and educational videos covering the basics of trading, such as the application of take profit and stop loss orders in forex trading.

The main points of each broker review are split into three categories; the good, the bad and the ugly, so that traders can get a feel for the broker before they trade there. The channel also provides explainers on different ways you can use eToro to trade stocks, cryptocurrencies and forex markets and is also associated with some simulation games and external tools that help beginner traders to trade Stocks, Forex and Bitcoin, like the popular app Trading Game.

With detailed reviews on brokers and educational material, be sure to follow Finance Illustrated if you are trading the markets.

Bloomberg Markets and Finance

Next up, media giant Bloomberg Markets and Finance. This channel provides the latest news, analysis and commentary on a wide spectrum of financial markets, including stocks, precious metals, forex, and cryptocurrency.

The channel also hosts live debates from time to time, such as the ‘Great Crypto Debate’. Five playlists on the channel cover; cryptocurrency and blockchain, and financial markets and analysis, as well as three feature shows.  These are the David Rubenstein show, Real Yield, and Brilliant Ideas.

Bloomberg are known for getting industry experts and guests on their show for exclusive commentary, interviews and insights. With more than 38 million views on their YouTube channel and more than 330,000 subscribers, Bloomberg Markets and Finance are an essential YouTube channel to follow for investors.

Financial Times

The Financial Times is one of the oldest and most respected financial publications in the world. Therefore, you should not miss out on their YouTube channel if you are a trader or investor. With more than 300,000 subscribers and nearly 59 million views, it is one of the most popular channels for markets news and analysis.

The videos are categorized in a similar way to how the articles in their newspaper are, with stories falling under one of many categories such as opinion, world, companies, analysis, and so on. Individual playlists for each news category are available.

Like Bloomberg, to keep on top of developments in different markets and track fundamentals, the Financial Times YouTube channel is a crucial resource for any investor.

Chat with Traders

Hosted by Sydney resident Aaron Fifield, Chat with Traders is a bit like a talk show and provides commentary from real traders on various markets, such as forex, stocks, futures, options and cryptocurrency.

The chanel has more than 80,000 subscribers and provides long-form conversations with talented traders, investors and market participants to give you their personal story and share their years of experience. There is also some focus on regulatory and legal issues within the financial world.

Chat with Traders is definitely worth following, as the variety of content and in-depth interviews provide a ton of educational resources, even for experienced traders. The great thing about this channel is that you hear from the professionals themselves; what they think, what they recommend and what they’ve learned.

Investopedia

Investopedia has a large following of about 127,000 subscribers and they are known for their dictionary-style website that explains every financial and economic concept you can think of.

Their educational articles are supplemented by their YouTube channel, which has educational videos that explain key concepts. The channel also presents Investopedia profiles on key market commentators, participants and analysts, as well as providing commentaries from important players and broker reviews.

If an Investopedia article doesn’t make much sense, then you are sure to find a video that explains it with a video on their YouTube channel. Also, with exclusive interviews and features, Investopedia is certainly a finance and markets channel to keep an eye on.

CNBC

CNBC is one of the leading media organisations in the US and has decent coverage of financial markets. The YouTube channel has almost 800,000 subscribers and over 281 million views, making it the most popular in investing channel on this list.

CNBC largely covers news and analysis on stock markets, companies, and other financial markets. Investors and traders should use this channel to keep updated on fundamental factors affecting financial markets, so this channel is similar – and complementary – to the Financial Times and Bloomberg Markets and Finance channels.

Financial Education

Finally, we come to Financial Education which provides education and information on trading. The show’s host, Jason, said he created the channel so that anyone in the world could learn about investing , personal finance and entrepreneurship. With more than 300,000 subscribers, it seems his efforts are appreciated and valued.

Financial Education provides opinion and commentary on the markets by the show’s host and general advice and tips on how to invest and manage personal finances. Jason uses his videos to tell us what stocks he’s watching, which ones he’s buying, as well as guides to trading the stock markets. With a wealth of information in this YouTube channel, everyone that’s interested in financial markets should check it out.

Here’s how to live and walk in the clouds

Standard

There is far more to successful architecture than how the building looks; for it to accomplish its desired aim it must be congruous with its surroundings whilst simultaneously making a statement of its own – this is exactly what the Cloud House has achieved.

Positioned in the Southern Alps in Queensland, New Zealand, it has been designed to complement the snowy peaks that surround it. It gets its name from the stainless-steel membrane that encases the upper section of the building; not only does this create a visually striking and undeniably unique visual that is reminiscent of clouds, but also provides functional benefits as it performs as a sun diffuser and heater/cooler.

The visually light, cloud-like structure sits upon a harsh, concrete base that cuts into the gentle elevation change of the hillside. This creates a distinct juxtaposition between the two levels and introduces an element of suspense into the building.

Pushing a 28-core CPU to its limits: 6GHz and beyond

Standard

I’m mesmerized by the way liquid-nitrogen vapor flows across the motherboard. There’s something oddly therapeutic about extreme overclocking, especially when the cold air gently touches my skin, making even the tiniest bumps in clock speed the more worthwhile. There’s probably no better place to see it in action than Taipei’s Computex, where gaming PC memory maker G.Skill gathers the world’s best overclockers for its OC World Cup event (with a $10,000 top cash prize).

Our previous attempt to tame the 18-core Intel Core i9-7980XE was already rather ambitious, but this year, we decided to go all the way with the massive 28-core, 255W Intel Xeon W-3175X, a rare CPU gem that costs at least $3,000 — if you can even find one. Our goal was to break the chip’s records at the time: pushing it from its 3.1GHz base frequency to beyond 5.68GHz on Cinebench R15, or at least beyond 6.5GHz via the more lightweight CPU-Z validation. With this many cores, it posed a much bigger cooling challenge to run at higher speeds, especially compared to the quad-core i7-7700K I tinkered with the year before.

Overclocking at Computex 2019

Like before, G.Skill let us go wild with its tanks of liquid nitrogen on the far end of the stage. Once again, I teamed up with my overclocking Meister, Joe "Steponz" Stepongzi, who secured an impressive rig for our CPU challenge: a beastly ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme motherboard with 12 G.Skill Trident Z Royal 8GB sticks, totalling 96GB of RAM (though the motherboard supports up to 192GB), plus a cooling pot made by another professional overclocker, Roman "der8auer" Hartung. With the CPU included, the whole rig costs somewhere between $8,000 and $10,000. "Why buy a car when you can have this setup?" Stepongzi joked.

The challenge with overclocking the W-3175X is partly due to having to keep tabs on all 28 cores, which creates more variables in power and thermal properties. The most important prep work, according to Stepongzi, is finding a suitable mounting mechanism to ensure the hefty cooling pot touches the CPU evenly. For a CPU of this size, uneven mounting will risk losing some of the memory channels — six here instead of the usual two or four — and drastically reduce performance.

The usual precautions apply. The motherboard has to be insulated with dielectric grease to fend off any accidental drops of water. Likewise, paper towel lines the gap between each memory slot, and then yet more paper towel wraps around the pot and memory sticks, to soak up condensation. A small fan helps blow the vapor away, too. When CPU performance drops or the paper towel gets too wet, you’ll want to bring the kit’s temperature back up using a blowtorch, dismantle everything, clean thoroughly and then reassemble to try again. This process alone could take a good 20 minutes at least.

Depending on the benchmark, the W-3175X had to be lowered to between -100°C/-148°F and 120°C/-184°F. That gave us more leeway compared to last year’s i9-7980XE, which would stop functioning — hitting a "cold bug" — if it went below -104°C/-155.2°F.

After spinning up CPU-Z, we made some some fine adjustments on the clock speed and voltage in between pours, eventually stopping at 6.1GHz. That was still some way away from the 6.5GHz world record at the time of writing, but we had to make-do with the piece of silicon we got.

Looking serious

But the benchmark that we cared more about was Cinebench R15, which pushed all 28 cores and 56 threads to run at 100 percent — as opposed to around 10 percent or less for the CPU-Z validation. That’s tough. We even sought help from another top overclocker, Hiva "Hiwa" Pouri, but the PC kept ending up with a blue screen whenever we went beyond 5.5GHz. Dismantling and cleaning the kit didn’t help much, either, so we settled with a score of 7,865 cb at 5.5GHz — not far off from the 8,391 cb (at 5.68GHz) record.

According to Stepongzi, this was really impressive, considering that his i9-7980XE last year reached 5.6GHz on "just" 18 cores, and now we have a similar 5.5GHz speed but on 28 cores. That is to say, Intel has come a long way with the W-3175X’s stability when overclocked. Stepongzi added that this easily blows away the i9-9900K, Intel’s recent octa-core flagship, in the same benchmarks (though the i9-9900KS announced at Computex should see much improved performance).

Even though we failed to break any record, there are ways to improve our chances in the future. For one, a less humid environment would help a lot. Steponz said he could set up a rig in a dry place, like Las Vegas, and then bench for hours with no ice or vapor potentially affecting performance. The rest is all in the prep details. That, and a bit of luck.

Researchers hope a blood test can reveal early signs of cancer

Standard

Scientists hope to perfect a new blood test that can detect the early signs of eight different types of cancer. Thrive Earlier Detection, a company founded by three Johns Hopkins cancer researchers, has raised $110 million from investors in order to bring ts early screening tool CancerSEEK to market, reports MIT Technology Review. Known as a "liquid biopsy," CancerSEEK works by detecting genetic mutations in tumor DNA and protein markers in blood plasma that are implicated in cancer.

Initial studies for CancerSEEK have been promising, but scientists say there’s plenty of room for improvement. A retrospective study published in Science in 2018 of over 1000 patients with early-stage tumors revealed that CancerSEEK yielded a positive result about 70 percent of the time. CancerSEEK worked especially well for ovarian and liver cancers, with nearly a 98 percent success rate. It fared the most poorly with breast cancer, detecting only 33 percent of Stage 1 breast cancer. False positives were less than one percent.

A simple blood test that can detect cancer early and accurately has been biotech’s holy grail invention for many years, but the science isn’t quite there yet. Recent high-profile failures in the industry, such as that of Elizabeth Holmes’ Theranos, are proof of the dangers of media enthusiasm mixed with venture capital funding. Thrive joins a crowded field of other biotech entrepreneurs aiming to get their tests into hospitals. Grail, a competing biotech startup headed by a former Google executive, is behind a blood test that correctly identified tumors in 87 percent of patients studied.

The next steps for CancerSEEK appear to be more studies. Thrive is partnering with healthcare provider Geisinger to launch a clinical trial of over 10,000 healthy individuals.

Pitching accuracy rates of over 99% for multiple cancer screens, Thrive launches with $110 million

Standard

For more than 25 years the founders of Thrive Earlier Detection have been researching ways to improve the accuracy of liquid biopsy tests.

The fruits of that labor from Dr. Bert Vogelstein, Dr. Kenneth Kinzler and Dr. Nickolas Papadopoulos — all professors and researchers at Johns Hopkins University — is CancerSEEK, a liquid biopsy test that has demonstrated specificity of over 99% in a retrospective study published by Science earlier this year.

By minimizing false positives, in cancer screening tools and providing a test with proven accuracy doctors can take treatment actions earlier, which can lead to better survival rates for cancer patients.

Now, with FDA approval for its tests for pancreatic and ovarian cancer and a new study underway with a large healthcare provider, CancerSEEK is being rolled out to market through Thrive Earlier Detection with the help of a new $110 million round of funding.

Thrive works by analyzing highly targeted sets of DNA and proteins in the blood to detect cancer.

“Over the past 30 years we have made great strides in understanding cancer. Combining this knowledge with the latest in molecular testing technologies, our founders have developed a simple and affordable blood test for the detection of many cancers at relatively early stages,” said Christoph Lengauer, Ph.D., partner at Third Rock Ventures, and co-founder and chief innovation officer of Thrive, in a statement. “We envision a future where routine preventative care includes a blood test for cancer, just as patients are now routinely tested for early stages of heart disease. We know that if cancer is caught early enough, it can often be cured.”

As part of its rollout, the company’s screening tool is being evaluated in DETECT, a study of 10,000 currently healthy individuals that’s being conducted in conjunction with the healthcare organization Geisinger. So far, 10,000 women between the ages of 65 and 75 without a history of cancer have been enrolled in the trial.

“To be truly useful to patients, new medical technology must be developed with rigorous evidence and designed to be affordable and readily integrated into routine medical care,” said Steven J. Kafka, Ph.D., partner at Third Rock Ventures and chief executive officer of Thrive, said in a statement. “With the help of experts and strategic partners, Thrive is launching today to advance a novel test for the earlier detection of multiple cancers, which we aim to augment with an integrated service that helps patients maneuver the often confusing path that follows a cancer diagnosis.”

Third Rock Ventures actually led the Series A financing for Thrive, and comprise the bulk of the company’s executive team, while Kinzler and Papadopoulos — the researchers from Johns Hopkins who developed the technology — will have seats on the company’s board.

Other investors in the round include Bill Maris’ Section 32 investment firm, Casdin Capital, Biomatics Capital, BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners, Invus, Exact Sciences, Cowin Venture, Camden Partners, Gamma 3 LLC and others.

According to Thrive, ovarian, pancreatic and liver cancers are difficult to detect because they can develop in pathways that aren’t always well understood.

Using CancerSEEK, Thrive hopes to develop a blood-based test that can be used in routine medical care, with the goal of identifying multiple cancer types at earlier stages.

The technology works by following genomic mutations in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) and cancer-associated protein markers in plasma to identify abnormalities that are common across multiple cancers. In a retrospective study published by Science in 2018, CancerSEEK was shown to perform with greater than 99% specificity and with sensitivities ranging from 69% to 98% for the detection of five cancer types – ovarian, liver, stomach, pancreas and esophageal, which the company says are cancers for which there no screening tests available for average-risk individuals.

Thrive’s research has attracted an all-star executive team in addition to Lengauer and Kafka from Third Rock. Former Goldman Sachs lead medical technology analyst Isaac Ro is joining the company as chief financial officer, and the company’s head of research is Isaac Kinde, a co-inventor of the CancerSEEK technology.

It’s hard to overstate how transformative the Thrive test could prove to be. Having a blood-based diagnostic test for cancer prevalence and the ability to initiate treatment earlier radically improves the chances for surviving a cancer diagnosis.

This documentary exposes all the ways people cheat on Instagram

by Leave a Comment

From a platform intended to share moments with your friends, Instagram has become something completely different. Nowadays it’s a game and a competition, and many people go great lengths to become or at least appear popular on this social network. In this documentary from VPRO Extra, you get to see all the crazy things people do to seem popular, and it takes you behind the scenes of “the Wild West called Instagram.”

The documentary follows Nicolaas Veul and the making and growing of the account @followme.doc. It was originally published on IGTV; perhaps that’s why it’s vertical. Nicolaas tries all the tips and tricks to gain popularity, interviews key Instagram players and influencers and reflects on his findings.

At the very beginning of the documentary, you hear words: “Instagram is one big façade, it’s as fake as can be.” And nowadays, it’s definitely true. People do all kinds of things to fake travels, followers, and comments. On the other hand, there are people who want to expose this entire charade. For example, Instagram star Gabbie Hanna recently faked a trip to Coachella to prove how easy it is to cheat on this social network.  Photographer Trey Ratcliff even wrote an entire book about how easy it is to fake influence.

Lately, Instagram itself has started working on reducing fake likes and followers. Its parent company, Facebook, recently filed a lawsuit against a New Zealand-based company that offered these services. In addition, Instagram is testing hiding the Like counts from your audience. It’s an attempt to shift focus from quantity to quality again, as it was initially the idea. Still, people keep finding ways to cheat, and my guess is that the battle against it will be very long and difficult.

I listened to a Massive Attack record remixed by a neural network

Standard

Drums. Synth. The faintest hint of a vocal track. For a moment the song is familiar and I’m teleported back to the late ’90s, listening to worn-out cassettes in the backseat of my parent’s saloon. But then the track shifts in a way that I didn’t expect, introducing samples that, while appropriate in tone and feeling, don’t match up with my brain’s subconscious. It’s an odd sensation that I haven’t felt before; as if someone has snuck into my flat and rearranged the furniture in small, barely-perceptible ways. I can’t help but stand rooted to the spot, waiting to see how the song shifts next.

Mezzanine, by trip-hop group Massive Attack, is a huge record that many, including Rolling Stone, consider one of the best mankind has ever produced. You’ve probably heard at least a few of its tracks, like "Teardrop," "Angel" and "Inertia Creeps." I can say with absolute certainty, though, that you’ve never listed to a version remixed by a custom neural network.

The mashup is part of a new exhibition at London’s art-focused Barbican center. It’s easy to miss — the moody, atmospheric tones are easily suffocated by the patter and chatter of nearby attendees. A giant projection with flashing letters, though, alludes to the AI-powered creativity happening out of sight.

Those characters are, in fact, from DNA sequences that were used to encode the album in a spray can. That unusual form of musical distribution is also being exhibited at the show, but has no real connection to the neural network project. Still, the letters that comprise DNA — A, C, G and T — flash across the wall, creating a simple but effective music video for the Mezzanine remix that’s pumped out of two Sonos speakers.

The neural-network rendition never stops. It’s a machine that constantly spits out new sequences derived from every track on Mezzanine. The remix sounds like a singular piece that is continuously being updated and extended, like a band who doesn’t know when to stop riffing on the last track of a live set. The lack of a clear-cut start or end point was maddening, at first. But I soon appreciated its rolling and ever-evolving nature, which felt strangely similar to a 10-hour ‘white noise’ rain track or study playlist on YouTube.

The original version of "Teardrop," the second single from Mezzanine.

Massive Attack collaborated with Mick Grierson, a professor and research leader at the UAL (University of the Arts London) Creative Computing Institute, and various students on the installation. Prior to the project, Grierson had spent several years working on ways to produce music with neural networks. Unlike most artists, though, he didn’t use notes and chord progressions as the fundamental building blocks. Instead, he focused on systems that could understand the "texture" of bands like Massive Attack, who uses sweeping, continuous sounds to transport the listener. "You don’t really notate that stuff," he explained. "It’s about the style, and the quality of the sample, particularly with electronic music."

A few years back, Grierson and his research team attended Moogfest, a music and technology festival in North Carolina, to run a workshop on machine learning and share some of the toolkits they had been developing. For Grierson, it wasn’t enough for the systems to work and produce something pleasant — they had to be packaged in a way that artists understood and could actually use.

The researcher bumped into some folk from Google who had been working on a similar project. They were impressed with Grierson’s work and suggested he talk with Massive Attack, who were keen to utilize machine learning in their music. After the show, the band called Grierson and scheduled an in-person meeting.

"Then [Massive Attack] just came into the office and we had a talk, and we played them what we had, and they said that they wanted to make a new version of Mezzanine," Grierson said. "And that was how it started really."

"We played them what we had, and they said that they wanted to make a new version of Mezzanine."

The British group, who used to be a trio but now consists of just Robert "3D" Del Naja and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall, has long used technology to create, perform and distribute music in unique and unexpected ways. As Wired reports, the band met Andrew Melchior, part of creative technology specialist 3rd Space Agency, after a concert in 2013. The musicians wanted visuals that were unique to each venue and could respond to the audience’s reactions. Melchior suggested they talk to Magic Leap, the company behind the One AR headset, and Will Wright, the legendary game designer behind SimCity and The Sims, who was working on AI tools with his startup Stupid Fan Club.

Barbican

Later, Massive Attack worked with developer RjDj on Fantom, a music player app that offered four new tracks and the ability to remix songs based on the user’s location, local time, movement and, if you had a paired smartwatch, heartbeat.

At first, Grierson and his team planned to hand over their technology and let Massive Attack spearhead the Mezzanine remix. "We wanted to help them do things their way," he said. "That was very much the approach we wanted to take." After a few months, however, it was clear the systems weren’t ready for even tech-savvy artists like Massive Attack to use. Grierson was reluctant to take creative ownership of the project — his goal was to empower other people — but soon realized that he needed to be more hands-on.

"Eventually I just said, ‘Look if you still really want to do this, I will devote time to making it happen, and I’ll put my own expertise in,’" he said.

Grierson, working alongside students from UAL and Goldsmiths, developed a bunch of machine learning systems that could continuously analyze and ‘train’ themselves on the record. For the best part of a year, Grierson would wake up and load stems — the individual instruments, or tracks that make up a song — into the systems, go about his day and then check to see what they had produced in the evening. It was easy, he discovered, to generate music that was awful or vastly different from the source material. Creating a subtle variation of Mezzanine, something that could pass for a bonus track or extended prelude, was tougher.

"Sometimes it takes hours to generate something, and then you come back and listen to it and it’s just not worked the way you need, so you have to start again," Grierson said. "There’s no real-time feedback. So we were constantly trying to reach towards a real-time system that would allow us to do this quickly, and that ended up being much more challenging than I originally hoped. It was just really hard. I don’t know what else to say. It was really, really hard."

The original version of "Angel," the first track on Mezzanine.

He decided to focus on a single track, "Angel," and nail Massive Attack’s trademark sense of space, or emptiness. "And when I finished that, and I played it to everybody, everyone just went, ‘This is it,’" he said. Elated, Grierson moved on to the other tracks. Though he tackled them separately, the system was allowed to subtly blur in elements from the rest of the album. "If it’s playing back ‘Teardrop,’" he explained, "sometimes you’ll get the guitar part from ‘Inertia Creeps,’ just because, well, I allowed it to have that space, so it could creep in."

Grierson also built a machine learning system that could produce a strange, but not ear-achingly bad vocal track. Of course, it doesn’t know anything about the words, right? "It doesn’t understand the words, it’s just trying to make up something that sounds a bit like words, but it does sound like 3D [Del Naja]," he said. "It sounds like 3D talking in an alien language."

By September, both Grierson and Massive Attack were happy with the overall sound. Before they could wrap production, though, the group had to make the AI-powered remix interactive. The Barbican wanted something that was simple and approachable enough to tempt visitors into walking over. In the end, Grierson built a small camera into the podium that holds the glass cabinet and Mezzanine spray can. The hidden hardware tracks the number of people by the exhibit and their proximity to the projection. If a throng of people inch closer, the drums and bass will rise in response.

"If you move around a lot you get a few surprises, and then as people drift away, it calms itself down."

"So as you approach it, it gives back to you," Grierson said. "Then if you move around a lot you get a few surprises, and then as people drift away, it calms itself down." Otherwise, the system moves into an idle state, slowly generating new segments and phasing out old ones. It’s a piece that will change and evolve over the exhibition’s three-month runtime. Every new sequence is, however, confined to some basic parameters — a necessary failsafe so Massive Attack and the rest of the team don’t have to stand watch.

Grierson hopes the installation will make people pause and look at Mezzanine, an album that was released more than two decades ago, with a fresh perspective. It could, he says, also trigger a discussion about the way art will be influenced by artificial intelligence in the future.

Barbican

"I hope it reminds them of the past," he said, "and makes them think about the future in new ways." The project has an ephemeral, ever-changing form that’s unlike any traditional record. It echoes live performances, which are slightly different every time, and the way many artists are now choosing to share and update their work online. Kanye West tweaked and re-uploaded The Life of Pablo post-release; HBO, meanwhile, removed a Starbucks cup from Game of Thrones.

You can have a favorite version, of course, but in an era of streaming, remixes and remasters, media is no longer permanent. It’s possible that, in the future, artists will continuously reinterpret their work, and AI may be a part of that process.

"From an artist’s point of view there’s nothing unusual about that," Grierson said. "It’s just that from a listener’s point of view, they’re used to something being a certain way."

To coincide with the exhibition, Grierson is launching a site called Mimic that teaches artists how to use similar machine learning techniques. If it catches on, Mezzanine will be remembered not only as a phenomenal record, but one that helped democratize a potentially ground-breaking technology in the music industry. And if not, well — we got an interesting Massive Attack remix out of it.
