Is it easier to make consistent profits with forex than stocks?

    That's because you don't understand shorting, and you see stocks as having inferior trading potential because your perception of trading them is centered only on "buying opportunities"; the limitation you perceive is actually self-imposed, not market-imposed as you imagine.

    Well 2K+ account with Margin to short Stocks, then only $5+ stocks.

    25K+ if you want to day trade via stocks.

    Normal poor person with normal sub 2K account is better off with Forex, why I trade forex :(

    (I'm no advocate for stock-tradng: I've never done a stock trade in my life. And I did start off on spot forex for exactly the same reason as you.)

  5. im pretty sure the answer has been said, and simply to reinforce it I would say there is nothing easy about CONSTANTLY generating profits, maybe the easiest constant are loses. lol. but seriously thats the key actually find a constant method that generates profits no matter how small it is.

    For U.S IB customers you have to have a $10M account to trade leveraged FX. I am able to trade with them because I use risk mgmt I don't need any leverage.

    All I can say is that I hope the UK don't follow the US in that regards.
