Women in Trading

July 21, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Trading is one of the last male-dominated bastions in finance. However, since the advent of electronic trading and the financial crisis, more and more women are trading for their own accounts. And that's great news since new research by Financial Skills, a trading profiling company founded by ex-traders from Merrill Lynch, suggests that women make better traders than men. That study found that men tended to take more risks and place higher volume of trades, thus generating higher brokerage fees-but they didn't make more profits. On the other hand, women tend to take higher-probability set-ups and are thus less likely to have major wipeouts in their trading accounts.

We have assembled an all-star cast of top professional women traders to help you develop strategies to take advantage of short-term opportunities and earn a consistently profitable return from the markets.
