Topic: Using Behavioral Finance to Improve Investment Profits
Speaker: Don Cassidy, Founder and President, Retirement Investing Institute
The traditionalist approach to stocks (markets are efficient and rational) has been supplemented by recognizing the crucial human element. Insight into behavioral finance can significantly improve investment and trading results, since it gives a fuller picture of what actually moves the market. This presentation by Don Cassidy will describe key behavioral finance concepts (there’s a lot more than fear and greed!) to help you identify factors penalizing your returns. Specific behavioral finance approaches will show how to measure market sentiment. Cassidy will also include evidence from several charts, as well as some very surprising sources of behavioral finance insight that help with timing entry and exit points.
