Hello Vickie, thank you for posting on my thread!
I hope that you will inspire other traders, male but also (and especially) female,
to take control of their finances and do due diligence - of course, this is assuming
having investing capital to begin with (something that is often lacking).
I hope that others, like you, will come out of the woodwork to tell their tales...
PipNRoll and Lexys were two successful traders that I got to know and they
have been profitable, in their own unique ways, with trading (both forex and
other instruments)... These two women were so modest about their achievements
in comparison to a lot of men on here who come out all guns blazing and within
a few months disappear without trace... I just generalise here, but the attitude difference
is clear to all who look...
Of course, it is also impossible for women on a forum to be 'themselves': if they are too
friendly they get a lot of men flirting or saying inappropriate things to them; if they are too
harsh they get bombed down with insults for being 'a b+tch'; if they get angry then they
are, you know, 'THOSE angry women'...
And if you are a successful woman trader on a forum (or anywhere) then, given the laws
of demand and supply, you will be treated as something of an icon, a rare thing to put on
a pedestal, and expected to be perfection personified: this too is unrealistic...women, like
men, make mistakes, so you cannot lampoon someone for failing 'because , you know, she
is ... a woman'...
Food for thought!
