Women Capitalizing From Forex Trading

Forex has predominately been seen as very much a male dominated investment opportunity but it looks like the tables are turning.

There’s absolutely no reason at all why women can’t take advantages of the many benefits that trading the Forex market offers. A recent survey indicates that women are finally realizing that currencies represent a great investment and are capitalizing on that fact.

One of the factors that has prevented women in the past is the fact that many are working women or stay-at-home mothers. They are far too busy taking care of the family and home and didn’t have a great deal of spare time.

But the good news is that with the advancements in computerized software you no longer need to be tied to the PC screen 24-7.

Automated trading software allows women to trade the Forex market without actually having to be at their terminal. Once they have a sound trading strategy developed it’s a relatively simple matter to then have that strategy coded into an electronic trading robot.

Forex Empowers Women

Women are empowering themselves and moving away from their traditional roles as wifes and mothers. They are becoming truly independent and the Forex market is making that possible.

If you are like myself and have already reached menopause then it’s an even better option. We are not bound by the same ties as many of our female friends and don’t have the same restrictions.

For us time is not an issue and therefore trading the markets is a great way to pass the time. It’s also a great way to make a significant amount of money in a relatively short time.

But before you rush ahead and get yourself a robotic trading system a word of caution. Trading is a risky business ans it’s very possible to lose money just as quickly as you might make it.

Only risk money that you are willing and able to lose and whatever you do, don’t gamble with the kids college fund.

As someone who has experienced it first hand, I can tell you right now that it’s very important for you to learn the symptoms of menopause so it will be easier for you to cope with the physical and emotional changes that will take place.

Anyway, these hot flashes are due to the reduced amount of the hormone estrogen in the body, something that happens when women approach menopause. [Read more...]

What Do Postmenopausal Women Usually Experience?

The postmenopausal stage is essentially your life after menopause. When I went through it, all the irritating symptoms I experienced before menopause slowly began to disappear.

Signs of the Postmenopause

Essentially, you are at the postmenopausal stage if you haven’t had a period for at least a year. In my experience, I went to my doctor who then confirmed this by checking my follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level. The tests showed that my FSH level had dropped, an indication that my ovaries were about to shall we say, “sign off.” [Read more...]

How Long Does Menopause Last?

Over the years, one of the most common questions people ask me is, how long does menopause last, and my answer has always been the same: it varies from one person to another. But let me take this opportunity to explain further.

It’s normal to ask how long the transition will take once you notice the symptoms of menopause, but as pointed out earlier, it’s always different for each woman.
