    Which domain would you chose when trying to rank for a specific keyword - brand new domain with exact keyword phrase in it or like 5+years old domain what are only related to that niche?
    Let's say for example.
    i want to target: forex trading strategies

    Should i go for http://www.forextrading-strategies.com ( just brand new domain)
    or
    tradingmoney.com ( already 5years old domain)

    Which one do you think would be better choice to go for?

    From what I have observed the keywords in the domain are valued more than an aged domain. I would suggest buying both and doing a 301 redirect from the old domain to the new... this way you get the keywords in the domain and transfer the age over too.

    well if you buy a keyword domain you might get easy listing for your main keyword , but if you buy an aged domain ,and it has good backlinks then its like a goldmine , google serp isn`t all about keywords ,there are many factors and domain age is surely a major one , if you want your whole site to rank for various keywords go for domain age , else go for new keyword rich domain but beware you`ll have to face google sandbox for like 6 month so dont expect overnight results
    i have just given you whole picture , its up to you to decide
