The speech delivered by the RBS boss at this year's Merrill Lynch banking conference, in London, was far more upbeat than the one delivered by his predecessor Fred Goodwin, in 2008, during the start of the last financial crisis. At the end of that day, six years ago now, the share price dropped by two-fifths. This time around the lender's current chief, Ross McEwan, highlighted how its 'bad bank' was not as faring as poorly as had been feared.

I’m sure as people interested in trading many of you will have eagerly watched the BBC2 programme about traders, 'Traders: Millions by the Minute' (if not you can watch both episodes below). Regardless of what you thought about the show itself, it's useful to try and learn what you can from it - which is what I'm going to talk about here.
