Forex trading is still less riskier than Stock or Futures Trading, where you can loose more than you have deposited in your account. This type of LEVERAGE does NOT EXIST in the equities or futures market In the Equities or Futures markets, very often, sudden and dramatic moves occur, against which you can’t protect yourself, even by having placed your protective stops.
