Which Markets Should You Trade?

The Financial Markets are a huge range of different and separate instruments. In fact you can trade literally hundreds of different financial instruments across dozens of different types of markets, in many different countries.

Here is a list of some of the markets you can trade:

  • Currencies
  • Equities (Stocks)
  • Bonds
  • Interest Rates
  • Agricultural Commodities e.g. coffee, wheat, beef
  • Metals e.g. copper, iron
  • Precious Metals e.g. gold, platinum
  • Indices (indexes) which measure a group of products e.g. a Stock Index, or a commodity index.

Here is a list of some of the ways you can trade these:

  • Outright purchase or sale
  • On margin (you put up a small amount of money to be able to trade with a much larger amount)
  • Via futures
  • Via options (many different types)

You can use a combination of any of the above depending on your personality and your circumstances.

It is important to think about which markets you are going to trade before you start trading. Don’t just jump on to Forex because you have seen it advertised so much, or stock options because that is what your uncle does. Closely examine all of the opportunities open to you and start researching how these markets work and which markets you are drawn to.
