Topic: How Our Brains’ Wiring Affects Our Investment and Trading Actions
Speaker: Dr. Paul Thomas, Professional Mentor and Coach
The psychology of investing and trading has been a hot topic for the last 10 to 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. 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 these questions, we need to look at the neurology (brain wiring, in layman’s terms) behind the psychology of trading and investing. Thomas, who specializes in this area, will explain it and tell attendees what to do and what not to do in order to improve outcomes. Knowledge is power!
