What is better, to trade stocks, or to trade Forex?

Forex of course :)

They are 2 very different environments, stocks are much more affected by their micro-environment, currencies are exposed to the whole world...it has a much more global aspect.

Of course, it depends what your world looks like when it comes to what you will feel more comfortable with.

I guess I am more comfortable with the more global view :)

Stocks can be influenced by a much more “behind the scenes” sort of situations than Forex.

I find Forex -if you are with the right broker- to be much more fair.

Too many people trade stocks without knowing what they need to know about the company their trading on....how can you know what you NEED to know? Are you sitting at the board's table? No? Then you are just a passenger of the trade ;)

Forex all the way...it's the "fairest" playing field in my view.
It's a yes but for me.
Stocks, can be readily manipulated, by short sellers spreading rumors on a bulletin or message board or blog, by stock analysts writing about stocks they don't Currently hold, but for which they are doing a favor for other analysts that hold the stock, for which the favor can be cross returned one day, by insiders, by the big boys etc

Forex, often moved by the big banks. I learnt a lot from VP here
