How Our Brains’ Wiring Affects Our Investment and Trading Actions
Dr. Paul Thomas Professional Mentor and Coach
The psychology of investing and trading has been a hot topic for the last 10–15 years. Many books written about the topic share an underling theme: To be successful, one must be disciplined, act without fear, have a winning mind-set and never enter orders while angry. This is a partial list someone would create if they read those many books. But the one thing such sources fail to do is explain why investors and traders lose discipline, act from fear or anger and abandon their positive mind-set. To answer the question of why traders lose their composure while trading, we need to look at the neurology (brain wiring, in layman’s terms) behind the psychology of trading and investing. Our speaker, who specializes in this area, will explain it to us and tell us what to do and what not to do in order to improve outcomes. Knowledge is power!
