From the Inside Flap
This book is about an aspect of stock trading which is often shrouded in mystery. It is about the 'psychology of the market': about how the market's psychological phenomena arise, and how we can learn to see them.
From the Back Cover
Recognising that psychology shapes market movements, this revised and expanded edition of 'The Psychology of Finance', provides a thorough and up-to-date treatment of this fascinating and important area of finance. Outlining a coherent set of behaviourist/psychological theories that explain the essence of technical analysis, Lars Tvede outlines how psychology can drive movements in the prices of financial assets.
Including new material on framing and anchors, naturally occurring Ponzi schemes, and insights into why trading volume is often higher in bull- than in bear markets, Tvede provides a practical introduction to the 'psychology of the markets'. The Psychology of Finance is ideal reading for traders, financial analysts and bankers.
