Behavioral Finance: The Gender Differences in the FX Trading Approach

Marek Jochec, Hana Dvořáčková

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

This paper is focused on behavioural finance, specifically on the gender differences in the forex trading approach. The logistic regression model was built up on the data set, including over twelve thousand trades, which were made by almost three hundred traders. Using those models was evaluated and compared the impact of selected variables on the profit making of males and females. Those variables are for example length of trade, risk approach of the trader or the value of the trade. Both models were statistically significant and made up for the differences in the impact of variables on the profit/loss making.
