Hello Mayzee17, I dont think that is a well thought statement. Every asset class is different and has its own pro’s and con’s. For example selling options on CME will give you at best 10X leverage which means about $4500 per one lot of Crude Oil, however it might be different when you buy and Option, BUT then you are paying THETA, which will almost always work against you (think volatility smirk)
Let me make matter a little more difficult . Imagine you want to do pairs trading between two currency pairs or two commodities. You will need kill account size to stay market neutral because you can NOT trade fractional lots in futures and will strugle finding smallest LCM between the notional values of your trades
Now let me go a little tangent. And speaking from purely my personal opinions, I dont think that we should be told about how to invest my money. AND definitely not by Uncle SAM or Mr. Big Ben.
CFTC keeps targetting Forex and Forex brokers because they almost killed the volume on CME.
If you think uncle SAM cares about you, think again.
Uncle SAM also knows that smoking is bad, BUT you can smoke as much as you want by paying extra traxes on cigarettes and worse still now you can even smoke marijuana in some US states, Yes Legally. But whats even bad that you can not trade Forex with offshore brokers because there is no tax profits for Uncle Sam.
Okay coming back to point. No, I dont think any asset class is better that another, weather its stocks, or futures or FOREX.
