A lot of alternative investments have a high minimum investment rate and fee structures as opposed to mutual funds and exchange-traded funds. There is also less opportunity to issue performance data and advertise to possible investors. Unlike conventional investments alternative assets offer low liquidity as you will find that selling the asset will be more difficult because of a limited amount of numbers compared to conventional assets.
High minimum investment is not possible for me, since I’m a retail Forex trader! I started my live trading with only 200$; in addition, right now my trading equity is more than 10K. So low trading investment is not a permanent problem actually!
You are talking about here Institutional Forex traders! Yes, they have huge trading capital for trading with a decent trading skill! By the way, I am a retail Forex trader and I have a plan for being a institutional player in near future.
I can tell you that nothing can be compared with something like stocks investments for various reasons anyway. I do not want to get mad over here. Can we use such cases for doing something good or bad? I am really not that sure anyway.
