It always tickles me how the actual findings seem to be manipulated by those with a political gender biased intent !
The FT says ;
"A paper by the University of Leicester suggests that female traders outperform males on average, …"
Whereas the cited “paper” actually finds ;
"female traders outperform male traders more frequently. However, when male traders makehigher profits than females, they outperform female traders by a large amount. This is whythe average profit of male traders is greater than that of female traders…"
NOTE “Outperform” does NOT neccessarily imply that they actually make a profit
[EDIT - This is exactly the result one would expect from the findings of Evolutionary Psychology ! - Where the female would be responsible for child-rearing and animal husbandry (Minimise loss) - whereas the male would be responsible for hunting (Maximise additional food capture) - Thus acting as a team or “family unit” - the skills and psychologies of both sexes would optimise the net benefit to the “team” ]
In May 2018 I posted again about Rachel Fox ( Why we need more (good) female traders ); here is a video of her Ted Talk:
I think women are good to use existing tools but lack intellectual abilties to make theoretical breakthroughs. It should be left for men.
@ria_rose Good article, reviewing a number of studies and reviews-of-studies.
Read this great testimonial of a female trader from Singapore, wanted to share on this thread.
@Ele_Wood1 Interesting! Thank you. I am not sure about OspreyFX broker but it is good to have a site like this around.
Yeah. I just found myself reading more on this, and I guess it’s time we recognize that intellectual abilities are not determined by the gender of an individual.
Yeah they put up interesting content! I do crypto and forex follow up through their blogs.
I have an interview planned and all is in place, so as soon as it is completed I will post it on here!
This new article highlights my argument right at the start of this thread, namely that more women in trading could foster a more stable banking sector, among other things:
Are you seriously putting that “article” forward as a genuine argument in favour of the premise of this thread ?
I am.not.arguing.with you,.Falstaff, there is.no.point.
Pipme, I was watching Top of the Pops 1988 last night - think maybe BBC4 - anyways an old favourite was played and i remembered an old thread.
We discussed the song’s theme back some 4 years - wonderful to look back how the market has behaved since.
Hey Peterma… Has the indices/equities market been rising since, or stalling?
