Title says it all! The reason being is that currency pairs all move along side with another. If you think for example the daily and weekly trend on eurousd are up, and decide to enter long at first sign of pullback you could be waiting 2-4 weeks for a potential entry. And forget the other currency pairs, because when one is in a correction phase for 2-4 weeks they ALL ARE!
But with an option to trade 15,000+ stock companies they dont all crash at once like currency pairs do!
Funny. What happened in 2007/2008 with stocks ?
But you are right, it's very different.
