Which is Better? Forex or Stocks? Many people default to one side or the other. Someone who has been investing before will often start to trade stocks. Those that are new often head immediately to currencies/trading forex. When I started trading it was UK stocks back in 2001 and I first started when someone spoke to me about the stock markets.

What’s better in terms of day trading the forex or stock market?
Should you trade Forex or Stocks? | Pros & Cons

Forex

Very liquid – spreads are generally low particularly on the major pairs.
Loads of data as opposed to stocks where you have to pay to access Level 2 on exchanges
Free charts
Low barrier to entry, cheap way to get involved.
No day trading rules unlike stocks where in the USA you have the pattern day trading rule.

More extreme swings – I believe stocks have more extreme swings.

Forex can fuck you over than stocks.

Namdar Ali says:

My opinion is based on intraday trading.
Well, trading forex is less risky but also the profits are not great too. For instance, you'll hardly see above 1% movement in forex currency pairs. So even if the price goes against you, you won't lose a lot if you use the leverage wisely.
On the other hand, you can easily find stocks which move more than 5-10% every single day, sometimes moves are over 100% (even blue chip stocks can move a lot but low float and penny stocks can move massively in a day). So, the disciplined traders can earn really good money trading stocks. On the other hand, a lot of people blow up their accounts too.

I recently switched from successful Stocks & FX trading to Btc Crypto after shorting it the whole of 2018, There's a whole new decentralised market evolving which is in the early parabolic bull on the macro. Bitcoin could hit $10k in 2019.

I like indices myself but also do trade stocks and sometimes FX.

Mark, could you do a video on how stocks move the indices please?

amine4ever3 says:

Crypto all the way!!

Chris Hunter says:

Stocks, stocks, stocks

FX Silver says:

Futures in the USA.

Tullochgorum says:

One key point he didn't mention. With stocks, there's much more risk of getting wiped out by a major whole-market crash, especially for swing and long-term traders who are mainly trading on the long side. Because Forex is pair trading, there's not really such a thing as a whole market crash – even in a black swan event there's a 50/50 chance of being on the right side of the move and enjoying a windfall. With any kind of balanced portfolio, you'd have to be very unlucky indeed to lose your account, while I frequently come across accounts of independent and institutional stock traders who experienced disasters.

Renegade says:

Switched from FX to stocks.

Have to pay for level 2?? Its free for me.

Fx or stocks? indices

Guy Redares says:

FX is much more accessible and strategies are easy to backtest and tweak thanks to the MT4 platform

Tommy Vercity says:

You can move a stock with 100 Million. Why avoid it then?

Mark Gomes says:

Stocks. Strictly trade off the back of a catalyst. I’ve found way more success than I ever did trading forex. Different strokes for different folks I guess

Nibben says:

Yea a lot of ways to learn about Forex on internet, still the best is UKspreadbetting 😉

G.E. Stroud says:

I trade stocks and FX. I've traded cryptocurrency and still hold some, but the crypto market is like the Wild West right now. 😆

Kema Wellington says:

Forex by a long shot. Love trading data releases with a moving straddle. Especially EUR NZD and EUR AUD which has been spiking bout 100 to 200 pips over the past couple of data releases 🙂
