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.
