Women are not really better than men.
Apparently they come to trading much more focused and serious about it, with the right mindset to make it work. While males try trading with a “let’s see if it works attitude”. That alone should make a big difference.
And the author gives a few more reasons why women achieve better results at trading than men. Those reasons make total sense to me.
Does that mean than women will succeed 10x more than men? Of course not. But they will probably succeed a lot more times than males.
Also, keep in mind that those results refer only to amateur traders that decided to go for a trading course. I am sure that if we study freshly graduated university students that managed to land a full time job at a trading firm, then the results would be very different as both (male and female) would probably be highly motivated. I am still willing to bet that women would achieve better results, though, but probably not such a big difference anymore.
Those are just opinions, though. Without the hard facts to back them, they are worth what they are worth…
I certainly would like to see the results of a serious statistical study on the matter.
