what is a steady cash-generating method?
For the 'safest' among what you mentioned, options may be the one. Cos it is still possible to repair the trade if it goes against you. Not exactly the fastest earning but quite consistent, possible to get about 3% or more month on month or so. Don't really need extensive use of charts as well if you know how.
Those you mentioned, there is no fastest or safest way. These are high risk products and require good knowledge of technical analysis for trading.
To learn more about trading:
Two really good books on candlestick charting are:
Japanese Candlesticks Charting Techniques – Steve Nisson
The Candlestick Course – Steve Nisson
You can find them in the library.
Other good trading books are:
Entries and Exits – Alexander Elder
Trading for a Living – Alexander Elder
Sell and Sell Short – Alexander Elder
Come into my Trading Room – Alexander Elder
Financial instruments such as forex, gold, futures, spot, option etc are considered many to be risky, especially if you do not know what you are doing. For example, driving a car is dangerous unless you make the effort to learn how to drive safely. Likewise, trading in financial instruments is risky unless you make the effort to learn how to trade the instruments safely.
Sorry, my private point of view:
these are exactly asset classes that the retail investor surely should avoid given they are highest risk and often short term trading instruments, when even finance professionals cannot predict the price developments
