What YouTube channels are best?

Most of the you tube video creators are there to promote one of the brokers, so don’t rely on them.

I’ll check it out!

What about you tubers who review a number of brokers?

Awesome, thanks!

they do review, but I can not say how genuine they are.

Linked below is an interesting YouTube channel where various common strategies are back tested over 100 or 200 trades to see whether they will increase an accounts equity… or not!

It’s an interesting (clever) variation on back testing as the duration is not set by time but by the completion of the number of position’s being tested… Which is a real issue with some strategies.

Hopefully will give new traders a look at how back testing setups actually works and various strategies perform when tested with real price feed data… Enjoy.


Subbed for now. Channel description is very appealing (My focus is on creating rigid, rules based and complete trading systems that tell you exactly what to do from entry to exit. I stress the importance of testing, consistency, and risk management on my channel. ) and nothing click baity.

Wonder how he averages 3+ vids a week over 6+ months. That looks like a lot of work.

Hi, I am new to trading as well. I will highly recommend ICT’s youtube channel. By the way do you know if he is still active on this forum? He doesnt have any social media accounts and im not sure if he is still active on here.

Im new to trading and i’ve heard great things about ICT. By the way do you klnow if he’s still active on this forum or not?

Pretty much all via YouTube these days. He regularly posts on YT community and uses that like FB or Twitter.

Karen Foo’s just released a video on Intermarket Analysis. This follows a Sentiment Analysis course a few days back. Her playlist on trading and investing is worth looking at.

Did he ever do a paid thing? I know he’s got some haters on here because a challenge of his blew up or something. But from what I’ve read, he’s never sold a course or book right?

Hey @Thebeezneez, I think Michael (ICT) ruffled a few of the self proclaimed geniuses back in the day, hence he was trolled out of Babypips a few years back…

It was just before I started here as I vaguely remember seeing some of the fallout… The SPE’s at the time went on for months about what ever happened…

Fortunately most of them have withered off the vine as well…

I have linked his complete FREE courses here somewhere on BP a few times, for those that were interested to follow his strategies and other content.


@Trendswithbenefits & @Thebeezneez, I could be completely wrong here but here but I believe this Michael guy is here as a main moderator?

I had never heard of him or ICT (Strange I know), until this post so I did a bit of digging to see what old posts were on here about him.

I found this one where someone is paying him out… The Cult Leader of Babypips and I see he has replied from an account called ‘System’ and it has a moderator icon next to it.

I thought I had seen this avatar before and yeah it was the account that would message me whenever I moved up a trust level…

I don’t really care either way just thought it was interesting. I have never watched any of his content or know anything about him so am impartial to what he has or hasn’t done.

Believe it’s a placeholder for a deleted username. If you look at any quoted posts it shows the username that was present at the time of reply.


Hi @TraderEvolved, Well found, I had a passing look at his content a few years back, I’m also impartial to his courses and teachings as I have never watched any content either.

I’m more than happy to point members to requested information if I can track it down.

If you search back to through the 2010 to 2014 era on Babypips (I got here in 2017ish) there was some seriously helpful and informative threads being generated…

Michael (ICT) last post was in May 2017… Definitely a Mod as he has Leader and System status.


Good pickup, thanks!

As I understand it the account that got blown was to make the point of overtrading killing accounts. I may well be wrong but personally I find his teachings eye opening and would recommend him. If that ruffles some feathers then so be it :man_shrugging:

Really cool interview with Kathy Lien, who talks about topics like juggling motherhood & trading and trading as a banker.

Here it is better to clarify which channels we are talking about - for recreation or training.
