Advantages of FX vs Stocks:

a) FX markets are deeper than the deepest equity markets.  The volume of, say, Euro/USD dwarfs the most liquid stock.

b) FX markets are open many more hours than stocks.

c) Don't have to know anything about financial statement analysis to trade FX

d) Don't have to deal with accounting fraud in FX trading

e) Less regulated so you can build a business around it more easily without government interference.

But the big, big disadvantage of FX over stocks is:

a) FX is zero-sum and stocks aren't.  That means that you only make money to the extent that you are smarter than someone else in the market.  Since the markets are dominated by hedge funds, big banks, multinational corporations and you don't know the answer to this question, that is not very likely.

That's just one of the many advantages of the forex market over the stock markets. Here are a few of them:

24-Hour Market
Instant Execution of Market Orders
Short-Selling without an Uptick
No Middlemen
Buy/Sell programs do not control the market.
Analysts and brokerage firms are less likely to influence the market

The main advantages over forex are

1) leverage - forex brokers offer leverage's over 500:1 where a stock broker you would be lucky to get 5:1. This means that you can invest in forex with far less money than you need to trade stocks.

2) the forex market is open 24/7 this is very useful if you need to close a trade. If you have a stock trade  that is going bad and you want to close it you would have to wait for the stock market to open.

3) You can get far higher returns for a low deposit within a short period of time, you can get great returns within 10 mins. Stocks are held for months and the returns may not be that big.
