NetPicks Authors Series
When it comes to investing, we’re usually taught to “conquer” our emotions. But our next special guest in our NetPicks Author Interview Series actually sees it in reverse: We can use our emotions as an edge.
Join us as we sit down with Denise Shull, author of ‘Market Mind Games’ – a fascinating book that weaves the story of contemporary neuroscience into a compelling argument for rethinking how we think about RISK. (Everyone’s favorite demon!)
Combining her expertise in neuroscience with her extensive trading experience, Denise and I will give you actionable tips on how to improve your decision making by navigating the shifting relationships among reason, analysis, emotion, and intuition. This is your “psychological capital” — and it’s the key to making your best judgment calls in the midst of any market.
