We take the biggest inspiration in the stories of other people. They encourage us and help us find our way. This time we learn about the stories of four women who dedicated their lives to trading.
Trading is a perfect opportunity for anyone to become successful in the financial field. The only thing you need is an electronic device, startup budget, and willingness to learn.
Here at OctaFX, we believe that every trading story is worth recognition and admiration. And that’s why we have gathered interviews from our female traders from different countries to learn more about their goals, ambitions, struggles, and experience.
Jessica Elias Angoman, Papua New Guinea
I am trading for only three months. I have lost my previous job due to the pandemic at the very beginning of the year. I tried to find something that would suit my needs and experience, but I couldn’t find anything, offline or online. Then I learned about trading, and it really sparked my interest. Eventually, I started looking up the information I needed.
In my country, it’s an unusual career choice, but I want to become a professional trader one day, despite all the difficulties. My husband and my kids support me very much. I think success would be a life of complete freedom in doing what I love and enjoy.
Sadaf Usman, Pakistan (currently living in Dubai)
I have been trading for four years already. I have been steadily developing my knowledge, and it came in handy during the CoVID-19 pandemic. It was my only option to survive in Dubai at that time. Getting through the lockdown without any funds wasn’t easy, so I offered my friends and family to consider trading as a source of income. I think it’s a great way, especially for women, to earn money. You need to manage your routine and put a considerable amount of time into learning.
I consider my trading achievements extraordinary. My portfolio size doubled last year, and the result has been a lifestyle that allows me to do what I want whenever I want to. That’s a significant achievement for me. My family is very supportive of me, especially my husband. He helps me with managing my time, and it encourages me so much. All I want from trading is to give a better life to my family. I’m still learning, but it’s a process that never ends!
Hilda Oktaviarni, Indonesia
I have ten years of trading experience, and it took me a lot of time and effort to learn. At first, I experienced several losses, but I knew I had to gain more knowledge with time. Initially, I learned a lot, found out how to read the market, and that’s what led me to success.
It took me eight years to become a professional trader and to make it the main business for my husband and me. All my friends and family are very supportive of me. The thing I am most proud of is that I can cover all my needs with the money I earn from trading. It means a lot to me. The goal is to be independent and generate a significant amount of savings.
Nurhazwani BT Abu Hassan, Malaysia
I have learned about trading from Facebook, and it seemed interesting enough for me to try. I’ve been trading since March of 2020. So far, I have managed to make 16,000 RM. The goal is to earn one million, I think. And, I believe it’s possible.
I am trading every day because I think that you can reach success only through hard work. I am very grateful to people who support me. It’s very important. The trading community is a wonderful place where a common interest unites different people. We would like to thank every participant of the interview and encourage you to share your stories about your trading journey. It might inspire someone else, just like every other story inspires you.
