Brett Steenbarger recently posted a link to four articles by Professor Andrew Lo that are helpful to trading. Dr. Steenbarger summarizes each article, and I recommend them also for deep reading on academic literature. Topics include academic studies on emotion, day trading, sentiment, risk taking, fear/greed, and randomness in the market.
It’s not always easy reading, but the articles provide insights based on academic data and experiments that provide higher quality than many of the “popular psychology” books and “easy to read” information. Take the time to study this information from an outstanding academic scholar.
