Podcast Episode 13 – The Emotional Investor
Learn about the rollercoaster of emotions that may appear when it comes to investing.
This week, Bob and Mary Jo discuss one of the most fascinating aspects of investing – how emotions and FEAR can control investment decisions. More often than not, investor’s behavior is fueled by emotions. As a result, they tend to buy high and sell low which is the exact opposite of what you want to do.
The markets are like an elevator…ever notice how they soar to all new highs and then plunge to negative territory? Knowing what emotions correspond with market highs and lows is the first step to being aware of how to better control emotional decisions when it comes to your investments.
