My experience in trading started long time ago and I can already count something about 7 years on charts and I feel like my learning process is just at the beginning. It is not about the ability to recognize a price direction, or to correlate price setup with current fundamental scenario: it is about the mental attitude, the psychological ability to accept and behave properly depending on the changing conditions.
When thinking about my experiences in trading, I can divide my learning process in 2 clear steps: one about learning all the technical part, and one knowing how to behave. The first part took me some years in reading, listening, doing researches, comparing, analyzing and recognizing the different technical developments while happening in a chart. The second part started at a certain point in the meantime, when I had already learnt a lot of things, but still was able only to burn a one thousands dollars account in a very, very quick time.
As per our nature, when things go wrong we tend to blame something or someone. My first reaction was to blame market, being always ready to get my stops no matter where I put them. If I moved stop at breakeven, price…

Men and women are different and no I’m not just talking about the fun body parts. Men’s brains are 10% larger and men’s and women’s brains are wired differently . We react differently to the same stimuli. Sometimes it feels like we’re a completely different species.
Few things before we go with the article. Not all women (or men) are the same. We are just talking about averages here, the average woman compared to the average men. There can be huge differences between individuals of both sexes. Today, there are women that are high powered CEO and men that are stay at home dads. With that out of the way, let’s start! Since most of us traders are men, I will focus on the guys in this article. Here are the 3 main reasons why thinking like a woman will help your trading!
1. Women Are More Risk Averse

Study after study has shown that women are more risk averse then men. Women shun investment vehicles that are perceived as risky (like stocks or forex) and go for government bonds or bank deposits. Risk aversion has its plusses and minuses. On the plus side, increased risk aversion can help guard against unexpected losses. On the minus side, the unwillingness of women to take risks prob…

No Offense, this article is Hilarious!!

Women more risky! No proof whatsoever.

Emotional Stability! That's what Women can never have, opposite of their biological nature.

Women lead more balanced lives! HaHa, limited point of view. Mostly, when Women are rushed into working, the family is broken.

When we talk about Forex, we are talking about money, financially, go to Forbes and check how many from the 100 Billionaire's are Women? Only 10. That's 10%!!!

Some Women might stop liking me after this opinion, no problem, it will not change the FACT.

Hey Guru. The article does address some of the points you make. As I wrote above, men need to be LESS risky and women need to be MORE risky. This is of course if their goal is to make money.

Re emotional stability, I think you are confusing the outward display of emotions by women as evidence of their emotional instability. But wouldn't you agree that as men, we are pressured by society to rarely express our feelings? Just because men choose to keep the emotions bottled up inside, doesn't mean that they are more stable then women.

IMO i go with your statements fxsurprise. Nothing can be assumed beeing generalized. However from personal experience (and especially in FX) i noticed a very high risk friendlyness by the male side which i am very sure never will find in female traders since (especially) males are pressed by the usual society rules which makes it unable staying completely relaxed. Only the real successful traders may have found what most are looking for and what women usually are expterts in: Work-Life-balance. ;) Good article so far.
