We had a response from a long German forex trading vet who said:

He mixes up a lot and does not mention important facts.
I would never pay 4 pips spread on majors and he forgets to mention the swaps you could earn with forex. When you trade futures there are no swaps.
Also trading 4 pips by a 1 lot position is not always equivalent to $40, e.g. AUD/JPY, USD/NOK, AUD/NZD, etc. It would only work with USD in the denominator.
Forex spot markets do not expire while futures do. 
Some futures are very illiquid.

But generally said, futures are a bit cheaper and trading them on official exchanges is always better than trading forex on retail bucket shops.

There is also this new legal European law as well

What do you think?

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
