Difference Between Forex And Stock

A few weeks ago, one of my friend asked me whether I am into Forex trading, according to him, he is currently earning small sum every week via an "automated" Forex trading tool (or mobile app). Being completely newbie to Forex and just started stock investment not long ago, my answer is "not at the moment". 

Of course, regardless which investment/trading vehicles, you can still make or loss money, ultimately it is dependent on your risk appetite as well as the vehicle that you are comfortable with. 

I did a simple research to find out the differences between Forex and Stocks and here is what I've got:

This reminded me two gurus that I've interviewed before in my "Interview with peer investors series" whom specialized in each of these vehicles. They are Alvin Chow of Big Fat Purse (click here for the interview post) and Ezekiel Chew of Asia Forex Mentor (click here for the interview post). Both of them are conducting their respective regular workshops for the keen learners. 

Oh, by the way, Alvin's next Value Investing Mastery Course (Stock) is on 25th April 2015 (Sat) and Ezekiel's next AFM Forex Trading Course (Forex) is on 9th and 10th May 2015(Sat/Sun). To find out more of their respective workshops, click on their course names above.
