Women in Trading: Katherine Szewczyk
Could you tell me a bit about how you began trading - and what interested you about it in the first place?
I always aspired to be financially free and forex appeared to offer such prospects. At first I was highly sceptical and it took me about three years of constant exposure to finally try it out. The frequency at which I would meet people who were traders was above average, and at a certain point it triggered my initiative to study the market.
