Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Well, think about who are considered to be the best writers, sculptors, painters, 'art people' throughout the history. Monet, DaVinci, Faust, Shakespeare, Picasso, Michelangelo. Should I continue?

I'm 29.


The point which comes to my mind regarding this is 'ambition'. On average, men seem to be more ambitious than women. This might have to do with evolutionary reasons... men want to become more successful than their peers in order to attract women so that they can ensure survival of their DNA... most women seem to focus more on finding the right man, one who can provide certainty for them and the family...

But again, this still does not prove that women are less capable of achieving the same things.

Ambition goes also a long way to explain creativity. I know from my own experience that I get far more creative if I really want to achieve something. In contrast, if a topic or work does not interest me much, I have a hard time coming up with creative ideas.

BTW, I've met only one institutional trader so far... a woman Maybe she is the only one in our city and I've got damn lucky (should have played the lottery that day, I guess ). But I will ask her the next time I meet her, what her estimate for the ratio of woman traders among institutional traders is.

Soon, some will ask rename BM'sTF to Cosmo-trading forum ...
It is surprising how dudes may think, that they understand, how women think and act and what its predisposed...

It's not specific predisposed, it's not nesessary to have gentle voice, caressing hands, etc. - they have a more complicated organism, and the higher-frequency brain it is no wonder that everywhere where women are comfortable they already present. Monotonous work for the brain and recognition of the stupid actions is not woman mentality. Worth look around to make the output.

Trading what you see - not what you think...

Here am teaching English grammar and enriching lexicon...
