    Forex Trading

    There are many differences with trading Forex and trading stocks or futures. Forex trading usually offers higher leverage. Most brokers as a standard will offer 100 to 1 leverage. Other brokers may go to tie as 400 to 1. In many cases Forex trading offers more flexibility in order types. This may make trading Forex more attractive to those that are trading with automated systems.

    One big difference between Forex trading and stock or futures trading is access to liquidity. It is well-established that when trading stocks or futures in order to have Cole location facilities the group usually has to be a large hedge fund. These funds have the advantage of speed and trade execution and usually can get their trades executed quicker than the retail investor. There are many Forex brokers that offer: colocation trading without the barrier to entry. These retail traders are placing their trades in the same location and at the same speeds as major financial institutions.

    Trading stocks and trading futures can leave an account in debit. This means that there are not the controls in place to liquidate open positions to where the accountant does not go negative. It is very unusual for a Forex trading account to go negative. This means that the amount of money that is wrist on a particular trade is not truly the risk capital. Many stock or futures brokers would require a debit account to come in with additional funds to satisfy the account.

    These are just some of the more overlooked differences between the Forex trading and stock trading.
