Gender Neutral Trading Opportunities

by Guest on November 11, 2016

binary-optionsDoes gender really matter when trading on the global financial market? Is gender neutral trading possible? Does being born male or female have an impact on your ability to trade successfully on the stock markets? All of these, and more questions have never been more pertinent than they are now.

In the news

Gender equality is a prominent topic in the news at the moment with The Telegraph publishing an article entitled “Mapped: The best (and worst) countries for gender equality.” This led me to start pondering the realities of gender equality in the workplace. At this point, people are probably sighing and moving onto another article because this contentious issue has been flogged to death in many circles.

what-you-should-know-about-buying-goldGold is one of those assets that people often get emotionally attached to – they either love it, or hate it.

But any successful investor will tell you that you need to be emotionally detached when choosing your investments.

you-need-a-financial-planSomeone much wiser than I once said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” They were right!

When asked, most people will tell you they have goals, but when you dig a little deeper you’ll find out that many people struggle to plan around achieving their goals. Some of us naturally have more discipline than others, but regardless, everyone can benefit from exercising his or her planning muscle.

The key to financial planning is having more awareness about your finances—you don’t need to be an expert. A simple way to get started is by taking inventory of all your financial assets—bank accounts, real estate, retirement and investment accounts. Then track down all the things that you owe, such as school loans, credit cards, mortgages and other debt. When you take everything you own and subtract everything you owe, you’ve essentially come up with your net worth.
