Investment Madness free pdf WARNING: Allowing emotion to invade your investment decisions can be hazardous to your wealth. Think about your investments more clearly How overconfident investors trade too much, take too many risks, and earn lower returns The investment impact of your self-image Why avoiding feelings of regret now will cause you even greater regrets later Yesterday's trade, today's emotions, tomorrow's mistake Placing your recent investment experiences in realistic perspective The devil you know versus the devil you don't Familiarity breeds investment--but not necessarily profit Is your memory playing tricks with you? You're not alone. We'll tell you what to do about it Not all information is alike Avoiding herd mentality: your chat room, your brother-in-law, and other temptations. Remember when dotcoms were going to end business as we know it? How your psychology reduces your profits and increases your risks-and what to do about it! Why'd you fall for that Internet stock? Why'd you keep money in cash when it could've earned far better returns elsewhere? Why haven't you fully funded your retirement plan when you know you should? Why do you always seem to buy high and sell low? Why does it look like everyone else is getting rich but you? It's your psychology. It's your emotions. As an investor, they're your biggest obstacles. They cut your returns, and raise your risks. It's about time you did something about it. Investment Madness will show you how. Drawing on the new science of behavioral finance, Dr. John Nofsinger shows you how to: See through the "illusion of control" that makes you overconfident about your investments Objectively evaluate the stocks and financial instruments you've inherited Recognize the feelings of pride, regret, and herd behavior that lead to disaster Improve your "mental accounting"--and your portfolio's diversificationWith today's instantaneous Internet-based trading, your psychological biases have become more dangerous than ever. Investment Madness delivers expert techniques and mental strategies that will empower you with true self-control--the decisive factor in investment success.
