Which one best Forex or Options trading for a beginner?
I’m looking to start my trading journey, but I’m not sure which market I should invest my time and money on. I have seen people saying forex is better, because of the low commissions and low barrier to start forex. However, I’ve seen people being more profitable in stock trading, than in forex trading. Hence, why I’m very confused, in what market I should choose. I hope you can give me a breakdown in why? View Poll

Hi everyone, I know the question is pretty vague, and that such things probably didn't exist until recent times. Asking because I've started trading forex myself. Would be nice if there was a saint which could help in these kinds of professions. Thanks!
Hey All, I've been thinking about making the switch to day trading stocks as speculative investment feels wrong. I currently trade FX and have for a year. I've had a 5% return over that period, however, it's all achieve through speculation. My question to you wonder people is when you day trade stocks, do you also rely on simple price action and speculation like forex trading? Or do you perform fundamental analysis, then use technical to enter and exit and sit in positions longer? I.e. longer term investments. I only ask because I'm a bit torn that with FX you win or you don't. There is no, oh hey, this company just won a billion dollar contract or they have a fantastic debt ratio and a large market share and should perform well in this turbulent period....or do any of you do both, stocks and FX? Any and all advise would be appreciated.
Hey guys, I have traded both forex and forex futures and was curious if anyone knows which has more leverage? Can't seem to find an answer anywhere on the internet for some reason! Thanks for your help.
I'm relatively new to the trading scene and have spent the past couple of months learning and teaching myself the basics of trading. I've watched videos and browsed the web over which is a better choice to go with and I'm still unsure as to whether I want to trade in Forex or CFD markets. I'm aware the CFD markets are much broader but Forex seems simpler as it only covers currency. I have $1000 set aside to start off with and was wandering which could theoretically get me better returns?
Does technical analysis actually work when trading forex or should you have a more fundamental approach?
I feel like researching into the economy of a country before you buy or sell their currency is a much better approach to understanding where the market price will go rather than do some technical analysis in a chart. What's your thoughts?
