First, what is the definition of "good"? If you mean to ask whether it is ethically good, it runs in the same vein as "Is AI good?" If it means amplifying developing trends, then yes it's good. Now to address the flash crash, I wouldn't say it is "responsible" for the flash crashes in the sense that it doesn't exactly starts one (the "trigger"). Thus the trigger is usually something else, be it a comment made by a political figure, an economic data release, etc. Once triggered or ignited, a new trend is now set in place. What the algos does is that it recognizes that either instantly or after some other confirmation from other readings/indicators/signals etc, and pile in on the new trend, causing the new trend to accelerate. Once this acceleration reaches critical mass, it gains enough velocity to what the general public deems as a "flash crash". Now, there are also other algorithms that reads into whether the market is shifting too much away from its expected value (mean reversion algos for example). When the move is deemed too much, these algos kicks in to trade the reverse direction, hence slowing down the flash crash, and then causing a sharp recovery move back to the perceived expected value. So you can also say that algos "saved the day" after a flash crash. So there is no good or bad to algos really, they just created new ways for markets to move, that's all. We just need to recognize that, and suit our trading styles to take into account these new phenomena.

A virtual account is good for you to practice your investment rationale and thesis but it negates the emotional factor behind investing which I find is a considerable and significant factor in determining how one executes their trades in reality. i.e. When one's virtual account drops 50%, one is still able to sleep soundly, but if that occurs in real life where money is real, the pinch and emotional attachment behind that monetary value would be very different. Here's some virtual accounts you might want to try out your investments on: https://www.investopedia.com/simulator/ Tradehero (on Android and Apple) But my 2 cents of advice, try investing with real money, put in a small amount, buy into a sound + reputable company and try dabbing your toes in investing.

Crypto markets are very volatile. What I can suggest is that you trade crypto-fiat pairs instead eg BTC/USD and XRP/USD, which will be relatively more stable as compared to BTC pairs. Systemwise, you can trade with a combination of TA(MACD, RSI, Hull Indicator) and FA(Buy the rumor and sell the news). Volume is also a key indicator. All the best for your crypto journey!

Indeed, desktop with two monitors here, using two Samsung 27" non-curved. A good price reference is http://www.fuwell.com.sg/ (download the price list). Strange enough that they only have the curved ones now at the bottom end for Samsung. And get loads of RAM (2x 16GB), Samsung 1TB SSD, and if you need more space to store historical data for crunching algo models, another non-SSD harddisk (hunt for HGST ones if you can, though seems like they are getting rarer).

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Jesse Livermore, How I Made $2 Million in the Stock Market by Nicholas Darvas, Insider Buy Superstocks by Jesse C. Stine. These are trading legends who didn't get lucky- they had their share of up and downs. They worked hard and learnt from their mistakes, and are kind enough to share with us.

Wowee I didn't realize flight school was so expensive! Are there any scholarships than you can look at? Or signing on with the company, and they sponsor at least part of it as part of a bond? With a $2k pay for the next 6 years, and assuming it doesn't increase even with inflation, it's going to take a little more help to get $100k, unless you can save $1,500 12 6 = $108,000. Mathematically it is possible to get to your goal, provided you save very aggressively. That said, learn skills on the side, and see what additional income you can generate. $100k may seem like a big amount but trust me you can get there slowly but surely :)

Depending on how much you are investing every month. If it is less than $500 then POSB InvestSaver and Maybank KE MIP are cheaper since their commission is min $1.

Yes, if you go in without a plan like if you just close eye tikam tikam buy anything or sell anything. Traders will know what is their entry, their exit plan for cutting loss and taking profit.
