Same here buddy! I too don’t like the stock market because of this reason.
Just wanted to know if you are a full time trader?
No, I've never been a fulltime trader. You?

Our world is changing though, soon neither Forex nor stock trading will be as relevant, it seems.

It's already happening in South Korea, where in the last 24 hours the trading volume of South Korean major crypto exchanges surpasses the countries total stock trading. Big exchanges like Coinone, Bithumb, Korbit, and UPbit passed the $14.6 billion mark on Sunday which is more than the Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) total of $14.5 billion that was measure last Friday.

I honestly don't know how to feel about this.

For me, I have been invested in forex trading for quite some times, but I think I am far from full time trader.

In the end of the day what matters is enjoying trading and being able to profit, regardless of whether one is full time or a part time trader.

Which one among this two is more profitable and easy to trade currency or stock?
There is no certain type of asset class which is more profitable and easy to trade because all markets are interlinked with one another. For example if you trade GBPUSD as a long term trader, you would want to monitor the movement of UKX and ES (SP500) because the Pension Fund Institutions are going to hedge and rotate their order book! If you see UKX (pink line) moving up and ES (blue line) moving down on a daily chart with the divergence of the black line (GB10Y-US10Y) also dropping , this is a time when you should consider selling GU (green line) at a micro scale! (Please find attached screens)

Therefore as a serious trader, you need to know the market correlations! The oil inflation is going to affect ES...ES movement is going to be a risk on/off environment for the currencies (ES goes up, currencies should go up! If not why are certain markets under-priced? If you KNOW they are under-priced, press the button!) And the bond market is also going to affect the currencies etc etc. This is how institutional traders trade! They aren't going to whine after missing a trade because they know the relationship of all markets so well, they can always pick another to trade!

Hope this helps!
