Title pretty much says it all. I have traded stocks, options and futures. I went from a blowout to breakeven to a profitable trader. The last year or so I've been amassing some money to trade with and I notice that everyone seems to be talking about forex. I assume the main reasons are the liquidity and the leverage. But I have a few questions. What is the volatility like on the mains? Compared to NASDAQ stocks during the bubble? S&P futures? What is so special about Oanda? The ability to trade odd lots? What datafeeds do people use? I see talk about platforms through the brokers, but what about Esignal? Do their prices keep up with what is going on? I would assume in currencies that trend following systems work well? Yes, no, depends? I understand you can trade this market 24 hours a day. What time is considered the start of the day and end? Does volatility etc change dramatically when certain markets log on/off for the day? Do you trade this technically, fundamentally, both or just wing it?
