All Star Interviews Season 2, Episode 13: Brett Steenbarger, Trading Psychologist
28 days ago by Technical Analysis Radio

Having Trading Psychologist Dr. Brett Steenbarger on the podcast was a huge treat for me. He works with the best traders on planet earth on a daily basis. Needless to say, when Dr. Brett is telling me something, I want to listen. In this episode, he let me ask him all the questions I was curious about and he happily answered them all with solid advice and relevant anecdotes. We make a lot of mistakes as investors because of our many flaws as humans. When our stress levels are elevated we start acting emotionally, instead of rationally. Taking losses is a difficult task for us, even though we all know that losses are part of the deal. I really enjoyed this conversation and it could have gone on forever if I didn't end it. I hope you get as much value from this chat as I did. Click here to return to the episode page

The premium that people are paying for protection sure looks like panic:Even with all this I am just probing with some buys and nibbling because oversold can become more oversold.Continue reading When Will This Crash End? at Howard Lindzon.

about 1 month ago by Brett Steenbarger, Ph.D. @ TraderFeed

That is the question I've been hearing a lot lately.  I don't hear anyone talking about stocks running to new all-time highs.  I do hear about all the market woes, from tariffs and trade wars to discord in Europe to political turmoil in the U.S.  My job, as a trader and as an investor, is to entertain a variety of scenarios based upon the data in front of me.  As much as possible, I want to stay open minded to ...
