Anyways back to the topic.
I can tell you my observation on my own kids made.
I have a girl 6 and a boy 3 (and a boy 1 but he isnt observable yet in those categories).
I see a big difference in behaviour which could hint into “likelyhood of sucess in trading”
We have specifit rules in trading that are universal and always must be obeyed.
- Never go against the trend
- Never try to be lucky
- Never listen to tips/hints on what to buy/sell
- The market is always right
I have observed by life examples on the boy and the girl behavioural patterns which could hint to the girl outperforming the boy in “trading”.
Just an example, the boy is way more riskier, he runs away 50-100 meters from us, also towards streets. Something the girl never did and isnt today even thou she is older. As well the girl listens better to authority, when you tell her she must not do “xy” and explain her why, she will walk around and brabble “i must not do that cause daddy said this and that”.
This especially reflects in rule number 1, going countertrend is more likely to occur with boys than girls.
This “rule obeying” by respecting authority puts the girl in an advantage in rules number 1,2,4 and 6. As those “skills” are transmitted by authority, not by learning by doing.
Rules 1,2,3 and 6 are very easy rules, which you hear once and know them by hard forever. But the tendency in the boy to ignore fixed rules (me included as a mid 35yrs old kid) puts him at a disadvantage in operating the markets. The tendency of the girl respecting authority that gives the rules (in this case the market can be seen as the rule-giving authority, especially considerin rule 6) gives her an advantage in the way of that she does not must feel the bad consequences of braking those rules in order to learn them.
Of course not every boy or girl are of same character. But i have witnessed my kids differences on the kids of my brothers as well. Some charackteristics are more likely to occure in girls, and others are more likely to occure in boys.
It is a similar observation which i made on male and female emplyees in my company.
Therefore i would support the idea that “woman are more likely to be sucessfull trader than men” when it comes to a technical only approach to the markets.
Rules 4 and 5 would put boys in an advantage,but those 2 rules are useless as long as you ignore the other rules. As in my opinion you can make money in thw market as long as you obey rules 1,2,3 and 6 without obeying to 4 and 5. But you can not make money by ignoring 1,2,3 and 6 even if you are a master in 4 and 5.
