Seriously, I don't think that good trading has anything to do with sex (Can I say that, sounds weird..sorry English is not my first language?) I think there are not so many women traders because the whole financial sector is traditionally very masculine thing. But this is about to change, since there are much more women interested in investing and therefore trading as well. It would be nice to hear from other female traders as well..altough I don't even think myself as 'a trader' yet, only learning at this point.

dude, female traders exist. A connection of mine (female trader) is trading the markets as a professional trader and is a profitable trader. She has 7 years trading experience as of now.

So, female traders exist, but maybe they do not really yell it publicly, like we, as men, do :-) !

Women are Emotional by nature - One of the main rules to be a good trader is well DON'T TRADE WITH EMOTIONS! - Kinda disqualifies the average women. im not bias or sexist just saying from a psychological point of view women are not big risk takers. a lot of women try it lose a little rattles there emotions and they are done. you will find more women working as analyst then actual traders.

I guess you don't know much about woman.

Actually I feel more skilled with woman rather than trading. : )

Woman don't trade with emotions simply because they are rational. Each opportunity is taken same way like a robot.

Guys are full of testosterone and want to prove them self they are right, they c

*** They can kick market ass. So then suddenly they take a bigger risk and forget about MM... they don't give a s...

That's why we talk about emotions...because 99% of traders are men.

Does it make sense to you???

Men are Logical....

Going to War is not Rational... but us men like to start wars. because of the logic of gaining or losing something.

If the world was run by women, 'emotional' we would not have wars....

Does it make sense to you???

You repeat stereotype thoughts about woman... Anyway I guess you don't know any woman trading forex or so so why do you give your opinions into this topic.

You may have never heard of Margaret Tatcher and Falklands War

An historian could probably provide pleny of examples...
