Japanese Housewives

Japanese housewives is a term used in the foreign exchange world for the many Japanese matriarchs who resorted to currency trading in the past two decades. Through cultural tradition, a Japanese woman is considered the one who oversees the functions of a home including the major financial decisions.

These homemaker-traders are also referred to collectively as Mrs. Watanabe.
