What is the difference between Forex and Futures Trading?
Futures are exchange traded instruments. It is basically a contract between two parties to buy (sell) an asset at specified price in future (precisely at contract's expiration date). Retail forex involves trading of CFD instruments (a contract between trader and dealer to pay (receive ) difference in price of an asset between the time when you close the contract and the time when you entered into contract)

Forex is the trading of currencies, while Futures is the trading of futures contracts of commodity and assets. Forex trading can be achieved 'over-the-counter', while Futures is traded on an exchange with central counter party clearing. Forex is seemingly a 24/7 open market, and it is also instant.

I am more experienced in the Forex trading markets as this is an instant market so earning here is very easy for us and the market opportunities that are present are also endless.

Forex market is an over-the-counter market, one of the main advantages of which is the possibility of trading with minimum capital - $10. Also, the specifics of Forex allows you to keep trading transactions in the market for a long time, which is not the case with the futures market, where transactions are forcibly closed by the exchange every three months. As for the minimum capital for futures trading, this amount should be at least $2000, which not every new trader can afford.
