Very informative content. I am Financial Expert and believe that Financial markets graphs are perfectly explained in this video. Pay attention to Mono vs multi scale.
Best regards

Investments are considered volatile if their value makes significant jumps, similar to what we see in the crypto market. According to the Blockchain Capital Harris Poll at, about 60% of bitcoin buyers are Millennials. These statistics prove that young people are more interested in risky investments. And because the cryptocurrency market is a highly volatile market, it is a double-edged sword: it has the potential to generate tidy profits, but each participant also faces a high risk of losing a significant share of capital. Ultimately, every investor needs to know his or her measure of risk appetite in order to make a sound assessment of his or her options.

In my case, it's forex trading with a broker from , and I believe that more people should use the internet to make money nowadays.
