It's a scene that we see repeated time and again, participants see news headlines about the stock market and financial media which lead them to making irrational decisions, often because of the psychological hardwiring of the human brain. The average investor underperforms major market indexes as they try to time good and bad performance in the market. We often see trading and short-term holding periods are driven, in large part by emotional reactions to news headlines.
We want our participants to be aware of their emotions and the psychological aspects of investing. Our participants can help themselves avoid reactions to market headlines by sticking to investment basics, seeking opportunities to buy when others sell, and working with a financial professional.
