Hello, thank you for asking about this topic! 

Both of these markets bear specific pros and cons, and traders that employ different styles of trade may favor one over another. For example, if traders like to engage in long-term trades they will prefer the stock market, but if they like short-term gains, such as swing traders, day traders, and others, then they will opt out for Forex markets trading.

When choosing in which one to invest, traders should consider these two things:

Volatility- if a trader doesn’t mind high volatility and high turnover market, then he should opt for Forex, on the other hand, if a trader favors a market that offers lower volatility, and a lower risk market, then the stock market is the one to choose.

Trading Hours- This is another thing to consider when choosing a market, in the stocks market, these hours are usually fixed to 9:30 A.M. to 4 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST), Monday through Friday with the exception of market holidays. 

The Forex market, on the other hand, remains active round-the-clock from 5 P.M. EST Sunday, through 5 P.M. EST Friday, opening in Sydney, then traveling around the world to Tokyo, London, and New York.
