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.

I'm 22 and have savings of £5k. Is FOREX more profitable than trading stock? I would like to aim to double my money in 2-3 years. edit: okay so doubling my money in 2-3 years seems a bit ambitious so let say 2k profit. edit 2: 1.5k profit edit 3: i've read every comment thanks everyone for their input :)) edit 4: /investing are pretty much agreeing with you guys, so FOREX is a definite NOPE. Going to look more into stock trading instead of completing ruling it out
So the people over at personalfinance told me to come here I'm 22 and have savings of £5k. Is FOREX more profitable than trading stock? I would like to aim to double my money in 2-3 years. edit: okay doubling sounds a bit ambitious so lets say 1k min.
Woody & Kyle, with all your free time are you tempted to learn how to day/swing trade stocks or forex?
Actively trading forex or stocks is such a hard thing to do & takes so much time to master. But with woody & kyles lifestyle allowing them a lot of free time, it may allow them to put a lot more effort into it than most. With the art of compounding, it eventually becomes a worthwhile endeavour and a great income. Also I know chiz mentioned a while ago he was trading stocks, so he could offer some great advice. Maybe it’s a stupid question, but trading really interests me so I thought I’d ask
Hi guys, so I'm a newbie in this trading stuff, I have posted before but usually I get confused since there are a lot of things to talk about and didn't know how to start. My question here is, What market should I be trading on? Forex or Stocks? These 2 are the ones I'm more familiar with, I've seen some cases where people say that it's better for newbies to trade stocks and others that say is better to trade forex since market is open 24 hours (of course not with the same volatility) and you don't need huge amount of money to start trading on it. Also they say forex is not the best since the prices in forex can be manipulated at all time. Which one of these would you recommend a newbie to start trading on, I know I have to learn a lot of stuff b4 trading in real, but I guess the first step to start trading is know what to trade. So what are your thoughts on this? Thx
