Forex & Futures

I notice in the grid that ranking all the systems by Total Return the vast majority of the top 50 are either Forex or Futures systems

Is this representative of the current state of affairs, i.e. high volatility, bear stock market, or is this generally always the case?

Is there any rationale in subscribing to or trying to develop stock based systems? It feels stupid relatively speaking. It’s been my area of focus but it seems time is better spent understanding/studying Forex & Futures


These systems have more leverage. The return is higher but the risk is higher too. The bottom 50 is dominated by futures and forex too.
