    Default Why Forex is better than Futures

    The futures market volume is thirty billion dollars, that's peanuts next to Forex. . The Forex market is always liquid, meaning positions can be liquidated and stop orders executed without slippage except in extremely volatile market conditions.
    24-Hour Market
    Trading begins at 2:15 p.m. EST Sunday, as markets open in Sydney and Singapore. At 7 p.m. EST the Tokyo market opens, followed by London at 2 a.m. EST. And finally, New York opens at 8 a.m. EST and closes at 5 p.m. EST. So, before New York trading closes the Sydney and Singapore markets are back open - it’s a 24 hour seamless market! This allows you to react immediately, imagine important data comes in from England or Japan while the U.S. futures market is closed, imagine how hectic the next trading day could be right from the beginning.

    Commission Free Trading
    Again, in eToro you only pay the 2 pips spread (or 4 pips for the EUR/JPY)
    Price Certainty
    In Forex, you get rapid execution and price certainty (under normal conditions). In futures and equities markets you do not receive price certainty or instant trade execution but the rate the last trade was carried on, which might not be the price you will pay.
    Guaranteed Limited Risk
    In the futures market your position may be liquidated at a loss, in Forex the use of stop losses prevents such a thing from happening.

    forex trading refers to the buying and selling of foreign currencies wherein one is exchanged with another. It entails either a profit or a loss. Normally, anyone who ventures into forex trading would target the growing of his profit. In such circumstance that you have the same thing in mind, all you need is a profound knowledge regarding the movement that the forex market features.

    For me Forex is important than any other business today.
