Forex is slightly different as can trade with a leverage so, you can in theory buy/trade $10000 dollars of a currency for a lot smaller amount of equity. Where shares you usually buy a share at face value and hold on into it. Shares are a lot longer investment, unless you buy in to iPos. Most share buying is long term investment. Where forex you can make profit every day.

All financial markets have a unique personality. This is true of different FX pairs as well. I trade ES and CL futures and I have a different strategy for each. What works with CL does not work with ES and what works with ES is impossible with CL.

True; but I am using only Price Action trading strategy for all of the Forex pairs including Gold.

See trading is something that’s similar for every field, however if you compare stocks and forex, do watch out for the big volatility difference between the two. No same strategy will work for both these markets, so be careful. The concept behind stock market and forex is completely different.

Decentralization & volatilities are the issues; that’s why I prefer Forex rather than others trading sectors!

News for Forex is almost instant for everyone ,news for shares could have been discussed weeks ago at a board meeting in private ,currency is bought and sold for many different reasons many times in one day,some reasons would surprise you , both can be very profitable but stocks lead the way in say a Bull market ,sometimes though FX does have Super Trends but not often ,day trading FX can be profitable if you manage risk,Stocks are driven mostly by speculation , FX is not.
Strength and honor.

It's absolutely different, when you do stocks you investing your money into something which already do have some possible value and probably resold several times anyway. I do want to keep it going for many many reasons. With forex you simply speculate a lot of times.

Though they are similar to generate profit when there is changes of price in short term, One major difference that you can tell is that Stock Trading is based on buying or selling of shares of an individual companies meanwhile Forex Trading is focused on selling or buying of the currency between two country pairs.

Stock trading involves buys and sells shares of individual companies, while FX trading involves buys and sells currency simultaneously of t two different countries. FX is much more liquid and stable than stocks. Trading both FX and stocks requires a solid understanding of how the market works and practice to get a stable profit.

No it's different. Forex markets moves based of economic indicators of the related currency countries. But share price of a company behaves based on that company performance. But yeah if we talk about technical analysis, it's almost same.

Absolutely! Forex trading has got to do with currency pairs trading, whereas stock trading is about trading equities. Also, stocks are more prone to price variations than Forex.

The concept of forex and stock are same. But the differences between them is their trading element. Forex trading means buy and sell of currency and stock trading means trading equities.

forex major pairs typically have extremely low spreads and transactions costs when compared to stocks and this is one of the major advantages of trading the forex market versus trading the stock market. ... Therefore, the forex trader has access to trading virtually 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. And also another difference is that stock trading is about buying and selling stocks for short-term profit, with a focus on share prices. Investing is about buying stocks for long-term gains. ... Trading and investing both involve seeking profit in the stock market, but they pursue that goal in different ways as trade xau.

@JessicaBaker there is difference between forex trading and stock market trading. Forex pairs price movement happen due to those countries economic factors, on the other hand price of a company's share depends on that company performance.
