You keep saying that it’s the same but it’s not really. I mean there are rules and regulations with potential government intervention on one side and nothing on the other. They are the same only to the extent of how they trade, not the environment they trade in.
Feel free to have a look at APRA.gov.au to see how much regulation there is in the Australian finance industry.
Yes they have similarities to the stock market but to say they are the same is a bit extreme.
I have no opinion on what to invest in but do push the diversify or don’t put all your eggs in one basket idea.
