Forex YouTube stars to follow
YouTube is a great place to pick up forex trading tips and learn how to use them in the real world.
There are a number of YouTubers that make great educational videos, perfect for beginners or those considering taking up forex trading.
We decided to rate them by the number of subscribers as it would be unfair to rate them by content and even harder to judge.
Bear in mind that each YouTuber has a different style and way of doing things. But keep your mind open to their style and you will certainly learn a lot.
And also, do not forget that many of the personalities listed here may share their opinions on things related to forex trading, but what they say should never be solicited as financial advice.
More importantly, you cannot learn to trade forex from YouTube videos alone!
