I found some interesting content on you tube, Topdogtrading. Ignore everything that claims you can make easy money. Note that 80 percent of traders can be wrong at any one time. I only learnt that from this community last week.

Some good advice here, you "earn what you learn". If you are planning to start trading with something as volatile as cryptocurrencies, it's going to be difficult with some hard lessons.

Setup a practice account, and trade using just the amount of money you will have in reality. Don't use the full balance they offer on practice accounts if it's unrealistic for you. For example, if you practice with 100k, lose 10% and then recover from there, you might think you have it cracked. But if in reality you only have 10k to invest, then your account would have been wiped out and you've never have been able to recover.

If you're planning to Spreadbet, make sure you understand the basics around bet size and stop losses.

    • It varies ... lol @ claim of 24/7* trading, with this footnote: * 24/7 excludes the 6 hours from 10pm Fri to 4am Sat, and 20 mins just before the weekday market opens on Sunday night. Do IG understand what 24/7 means?
    • Fund manager Mark Denning, who was part of a team running more than £229 billion of assets at Capital Group, has been forced to resigned after allegedly breaking investment rules. A BBC Panorama investigation – set to air tonight at 8.30pm – will accuse Denning of investing in shares which were also held by the funds he worked on. This is seen as a conflict of interest within fund management as a manager could potentially profit at the expense of his clients - the fund manager could use the significant assets of a fund to push up the share price of a company, benefiting his other investments. https://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/news/196565/fund-manager-resigns-ahead-of-damning-bbc-panorama-investigation.aspx   And how do his fellow financial professionals react to this?  Well they call him a 'uniquely talented' colleague.  Seems that his only fault was to get caught screwing the dumb retails clients over.    Let's face facts ... if you're 'little people' then you aren't safe ANYWHERE in the financial markets. You WILL get screwed over and eaten alive.
    • Good luck trying to keep up with all that 🤣
