How to apply psychology to trading and investing so that your portfolio will be immune to human bias – Essential Skill!
Investors spend countless hours prying into the inner workings of companies but conveniently forget to pry into something even more important in making successful trades: their own psychologies. The goal of behavioral risk management and trading psychology is to override the emotional and cognitive biases that effect poor trading decisions. By knowing your own blind spots (all humans have the same blind spots), you can avoid common losses due to innate human biases.
Most trading teachers simply pooh-pooh away trading psychology, saying, “Just don’t give into fear/emotions/whatever.” Some teachers take it a step further, preaching about aspects such as greed – but none of this is advice that can actually help you become a better investor. The truth is behavioral risk management is more than just avoiding fear and greed – it’s about developing a trading strategy that’s purely logical and optimized for gains.
Yes, you might already have trading rules that include stop losses and take profits to prevent against fear and greed. But risk management isn’t about these technical tactics; it’s about gaining control over your own mind. My course on risk management and trading psychology is founded on the study of human cognitive bias and how it specifically affects investment decisions.
The goal of Risk Management and Trading Psychology for Investors is to show you how your mind tricks you into poor trading strategies and investment decisions so that you can acknowledge and avoid these biases.
