Which market is best for trading?

There’s no best market for trading overall, it all depends on your unique preferences, skills and goals. If you want 24-hour trading with high liquidity, for example, forex might be the best option for you. If you want to trade some of the most-watched markets on the planet, you’d be better off with indices.
