I am interested to find out why there are so many retail FX traders. It seems to be the most popular market for short term private account traders in America. Is it because of the liquidity? The way it works with technical analysis? The number of factory having an impact? The automated strategies you can easily use? If you could trade other markets with similar leverage, would you be tempted to switch? Is it mainly the leverage? Asking because I am trying to decide between learning FX or Futures for day trading full time.
