trading in stocks and currency

Question ID: 31518

I hope this email finds you well mufti.
I would like to know if trading in stocks and currency is halaal. i would like to learn about it and am not sure if it is.
I would also like some advice on studying a health profession. most doctors and pharmacists have to deal with some clients wishing to claim from medical aid unfortunately. I have heard that its haraam, and heard a mufti say that if it is unavoidable-as in the case of a requirement for a job at most companies- then one must take the lowest amount of medical insurance possible. but if one becomes a doctor or pharmacist, it is unavoidable to not continuously deal with this on a day to day basis. how would one avoid this or work around it?
