Housewife, 60, makes $8,500,000 trading forex

THURSDAY, 07 JUNE 2012 00:00

Yes, it’s totally true. Sometime towards the end of the year 2007, the whole world stood in awe as we heard the story of Yukiko Ikebe, a 60-year-old Japanese housewife who made 800 million Yen (then about $8,500,000) from trading forex.

It caused a huge media frenzy as the information was widely publicised on the internet and international television networks.

The news only came out because the appropriate government tax agencies in Japan had fined her heavily for tax evasion. Apparently, she had used the identities of other family members to avoid paying tax on about half of her forex profits (roughly 400,000,000 Yen).

Her argument was that she didn’t think it was fair for the government to collect so much tax on her gains when she also had losses during some periods in her trading.

As you might well imagine, most of the world really didn’t care about Ikebe’s tax woes. What boggled the minds of the international community of spectators was how in the world a 60-year-old housewife could make such a large amount of money from trading currencies.

If she had been the CEO of a large financial corporation or a hedge fund, it would have been more conceivable but that was not the case. She just happened to be a full-time housewife (and forex trader of course!).

Her success however did not come without a period of learning. She had traded commodity futures through a broker for several years and somewhere along the line, she picked up an interest in charting price movements.

She started trading in the year 2000 and she uses technical analysis for her trading, a skill which she taught herself with the assistance of fund managers.

Interestingly, Ikebe is not alone in her foray into the world of forex trading. Reports show that there are literally hundreds of thousands of people in Japan who have adopted forex trading as a means of creating extra income for the family. Many housewives (old and young), working class men and women, and even grandparents are trading forex now, especially because of the very low interest rates on the Yen.

This trend keeps getting stronger as more and more people learn about forex trading and its amazing potential for creating massive returns. Another thing about forex that makes it so appealling to a wide range of people is that it’s a 24 hour market. This means that those who have regular day-jobs can still trade when they get home in the evenings or after they put the children to bed at night.

I can see the same trend emerging here in Nigeria as more and more people seek alternative sources of income. Nigerians have always been known to be highly intellectual and innovative people.

Now that we have access to more efficient and affordable internet services, it is only logical that forex trading will become a regular pass-time in most households.

Apart from having a large number of traders, I’m also convinced that many of the top traders in the world will come from Nigeria.

The important thing, like I keep saying, is to get a qualitative forex education and lots of practice. You can never practice too much when it comes to forex.

You’ve also got to remember that forex trading is not for the faint-hearted. It’s a business that often includes gains and losses especially when you’re just starting out. The main goal is for your gains to outweigh your losses over time.

This should not be too difficult if you have a good trading strategy and an even better temperament.

And just in case you’re wondering what Ikebe has been up to in recent times, it should come as no surprise that she now spends most of her time delivering lectures (on forex trading) and attending speaking engagements.

She also came out with a book titled “Ano yon Oku-en Datsu-zei Shufu ga Oshieru FX Ougi” (“FX Techniques Used by the Housewife who Evaded ¥400 million in Taxes”)!

At the end of last week, our virtual portfolio stood at $330,490.00. In our next article, we’ll have an overview of how this week’s trading played out.
