Thank you, Emeraldorc... You are so knowledgeable...
I should like to say that my parents have recently been offered to trade options with their bank...
I checked the proposed contract and it looks like a good investment, based on USD dollars...
It made me think: why am I so insistent on Forex?
Sure, I will make returns, but could there be better returns elsewhere for less effort?
ETFs, Options, etc.
What you were saying over on the volume thread, Emeraldorc, makes a lot of sense: because
of the 'easy' leverage, Forex is the obvious choice for many new traders, but it is actually the
hardest asset class to trade, because of the historically lower volatility and an aversion to the
single-mindedness displayed by, say, an equity 'bull' or 'bear' trend, which can go into years
unperturbed (look at the S&P500: need I say more?).
