I have some money to invest any where to have some income form it,I did interested to invest in Forex and get the fixed income on monthly basis But the contractor is saying about the risk involved too. The Gold is another option.”-->I am NOT an expert.However, In my opinion,I guess so; agreed. The investment of foreign exchange and commodity trading are both risky investment products. Forex trading will always be the more volatile when compared to commodities trading. Now both are extremely risky. But the movement on foreign exchange is much more volatile than the movement in the price of gold. I guess foreign currency value changes almost minute to minute like an interest rate in the market. The risk of investing in a contract of gold will tend to be far lower as the daily movement does not tend to vary much based on pip movement. Commodities,i.e., gold or etc. offer a risky trade, but they are also based on concrete goods, and are usually easier to gage because of the relatively limited number of economic considerations in play. Forex will always be riskier due to it's lack of regulation, multiple economic concerns, and fluidity of political risk.I guess you need to contact a Forex and gold investment expert.
