I believe it is not easy to compare the stock market to forex, i mainly mean for the type of execution and who  controls it (also leverage but is another big issue). In the stock market there is usually direct access through a bank to bid/ask price and they charge only a fee. In the Forex broker acts as an intermediary between the customer and the liquidity provider.Most of brokers agreements ensures the deal (istant execution). Until brroker marketing campaign to make customers' private accounts with instant execution will be difficult to grow in terms of private volumes. This type of contract created for deals between companies from different countries many yeras ago isn't good for retail customers. It is a personal opinion and I am not really sure about it so please share your comments.
