The progress of the past 100 years was incredible, but the next steps are tough

In my previous video, I talked about how we've already solved the 5 great problems of the 20th century. But it's not all rosy because in this video I look at the landscape and ahead to future and talk about the three great problems this century and how they will be very difficult to solve.

The big one for me is #3. There aren't enough people talking about it and it will get worse before it gets better.

It's the oldest scheme in the book, but it still works The CFTC is out with a warning about pump-and-dump schemes in cryptocurrencies.

Video: The five big 20th century problems are solved

Five reasons to be optimistic about the future It was a rough week in global markets so it's a good time to take a step back and look at the ultra-long term. To me, being bearish in the big picture is insanity because mankind has already solved so many problems. I talk about how all the main challenges of the 1900s have been fixed, or are on their way to a solution.

Trading Education: In the game of trading, it makes sense to keep your trading vision as wide as possible

Keeping your eyes wide open, can influence your bullish/bearish vision. I look at the price action as a game, and in games there are winners and losers.   For traders it is the buyers or the sellers who are the winners or losers.   One is winning. One is losing

Coming up at the bottom of the hour: US Non Farm Payroll and other employment data

US data risk at 13.30 GMT 2 Feb Yes folks, your next keenly awaited/over-hyped data risk due shortly but I do believe that it carries less weight nowadays as indeed much of the data does with emphasis on politics and trade. In the data coming up I'd say wages more important than jobs still.

An overly-busy trader isn't a great trader Former Bank of England Governor Mervyn King probably shouldn't be giving advice -- he wasn't a great central banker -- but he does anyway and hits on a great point.
