The Forex industry is actively developing, attracting more and more female traders. Brokerage companies claim that there are still far fewer women than men. However, their number is constantly growing.
The British broker INFINOX researched the audience of traders. The company found that in the second quarter of 2021 the number of women among investors increased by 291% compared to the same period last year. Moreover, 39% of female traders are younger than 30 years old.
Experts from Tilburg University in the Netherlands conducted a study that found that women have a greater propensity to risk than men. At the same time female traders are quicker to close potentially unprofitable deals, manage risks more effectively and often come out with profit.
The increase of women’s interest in investing is due to the development of technology and the appearance of a lot of applications for automated trading. The development of social trading allows market players to share their success and experience with each other. The opportunity to interact with other investors attracts the attention of women.
