I dont post in on this part of the forum very much, but some of you may know me already and my thread "Is it because I dont care" http://elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=73677 . I've been trading stocks for 7 months now and its still my passion, however I've read the advantages of FX over stocks and it makes me wonder. As a beginning trader, should I switch? no MM's no commissions open 24/7 easier to trade (currency pairs) not thousands of different stocks. etc etc.. I was thinking about opening an account with Oanda. I got 5k plus to work with.
