Instead of featuring a high profiled CEO or Trader I am featuring someone new in the "Who is" series.
Charmel Delos Santos-Marcial is the blogger behind High Heeled Traders and the author of the book “High Heeled Traders : Understand Trading with Shopping, Fashion, and Shoes!”.
She believes that women too can do and be great at trading as long as they have the right tools and knowledge about it. With that in mind she started the blog High Heeled Traders together with Mary Ann Delos Santos to reach out and share her knowledge to women who wants to trade.
She is recently featured in The Executive Qatar magazine for her work in empowering women to trade in the stock market.
Below is her bio in her blog:
Charmel Delos Santos is a private trader, mother of three, systems analyst and ex-beauty queen wannabe.Charmel grew up in the Philippines. The second of 3 sisters, she had strong women that influenced much of her life, as her mother and six aunts are mostly teachers. As a young woman, she worked in the family business exporting handicrafts made by women in her village. She was active in civic activities organizing and modelling in fashion shows, which prompted her to join Binibining Pilipinas in 1998 (Miss Philippines). She received her bachelor’s in international studies from Miriam College in Manila while also taking up computer programming. She started her career as a business analyst and worked in information technology for 15 years. After investing in Australian and New Zealand real estate, Santos traded shares and options with little success but continued to work through the lessons, finally getting breakthrough after taking advanced trading courses and workshops with Van Tharp Institute and changing her trading style to “trade as a woman”.Her current focus is protecting assets and generating income using options and developing trading system for Forex.
