Shares V Forex.

Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

So I have been doing quite well on buying the dips on shares and of course doing the right research on each trade as well. The ones that lost was a small percent

of the risk which is good for the account.

Plus the margins are much doable and you can move your stops closer to the price to lock in profit whereas forex on some trades has a higher spread.

So as for the forex, let's say currency, more risk, and much more volatility can = higher risk.

example: 

Buy the dips in Netflix, atm Netflix is running down fast, but it always seems to go back up, just got to know when that happens.

Nice to hear some feedback and your views on this subject.

Saw this chart re; Netflix go through this morning. interestingly Netflix being used as a control chart for all tech. As was mentioned in the latest APAC report the waning enthusiasm for US tech stock is weighing on the NASDAQ.

    • Thanks for clarifying. The support person clearly did not understand this at all, and the website is very vague! The 0.5% is something I'm used to from other platforms, and much easier to absorb as a cost on small positions when making a good entry
    • There was another fork the other day - Bitcoin Latinum - the world's largest "insured" digital asset. One wonders if every time another variant is created it simply draws away potential investors from the original version. I bet committed Bitcoiners wish these variants would all just fork off 😉 I saw something the other day that happened to mention that a Bitcoin was worth about 10 ounces of Gold.......then it hit me - would I prefer to be offered one Bitcoin out there in the ether or ten ounces of physical Gold in my actual possession? 10 Bitcoin to buy a single ounce of Gold intuitively feels like the more sensible way around as I'm certain that Gold is safe but several times less certain that Bitcoin is - so we could be out by a factor of 100! But whilst fund managers all start allocating the odd fractional percent to get exposure to Alpha for minimal portfolio downside the price will probably hold or bubble up even more. It will be interesting though  if national regulators later turn round and ban funds from holding cryptos - then they will all have to rush for the exit at the same time. Maybe that's the ultimate expected outcome.  According to Wikipedia in March 2018 0.5% of bitcoin wallets owned 87% of all bitcoins ever mined. Imagine if  transferring that 87% to fund managers at peak prices is the intended end-game before it all collapses? It would make Bernie Madoff look like a mere pick-pocket.
