Forex and Stock - is there a better market?
Being open 24 hours a day and simply being huge is a big benefit for trading this market. A Forex trader can literally work 24 hours a day, moving from the Asian market to the European to the American (there is no actual markets, everything is online, it’s just the hours that correlate with the time-zones). Couple this with the leverage opportunities and you’d clearly see that the chances of large profit are phenomenal.
Of course stocks have their advantage in that a person can invest in the stock market without really knowing that much and probably do fine. If an investor buys blue chip stocks they are unlikely to go down in value. For long term savings stocks are fine, but the short term large gains are definitely to be found with the foreign exchange market.
Many people don’t realize how large the Forex market is. It is so huge that no single investor can corner the market as has happened in the past with some stocks, and also with some precious metals and commodities.
