Qiuyan and I began by talking about the survival and rescue efforts for the Thai Soccer team that was trapped in a cave. The miracle of sustaining themselves in the face of extreme adversity was impressive, as was the effort to extract them. Pretty amazing what humans can do when maintaining the right frame of mind. Psychology matters…
It also matters when it comes to investing and trading…We re-introduced the topic of how one’s persona impacts investment and trading decisions. Qiuyan put this into practice at a seminar with DBS, answering the often asked question of ‘Why and how do stock prices move?’
With some insights provided by an explanation of Fundamental, Technical and Sentiment Analysis…at the end of the day, prices move and markets are driven by people and the decisions that they make.
Listen to the next episode as well, when we talk to Gilbert Siew (Hive Up’s very own Psychologist!) in depth about the Psychology of Markets and Trading.
