Trading and speculating in the capital markets contains a very large set of factors all considered to be psychological in nature. There are two aspects to this centrality of psychology in the markets. The first revolves around the dominant psychological characteristics of markets: The participants follow each other. Commonly referred to a s the herding mentality, the market is sometimes referred to as a mob or a crowd. This is for the good reason that we do indeed try to figure out where the market is going and then go along with it. The second aspect of the centrality of psychology in the markets is how trading affects us as individuals. Profit being associated with greed, and fear being associated with loss. Both emotions are wired into every human. However, our emotional evolution does not serve our trading well. Regular success over the long term requires overcoming our natural emotional tendencies with respect to profit and loss. Join our host Seth Julian MBA, longtime market trader, EU registered securities dealer and Alvexo Chief Global Strategist, to learn the simple basic rules of overcoming the emotions that can wipeout our trading account.
