Our instincts lead us to be cautious in the face of danger. And investing might kick in this instinct as there is really no way to know what will happen next. This is why investors are uneasy when there’s instability or a downward movement in the market. They start panicking and making bad decisions that they usually regret later.

How can you be at ease even when the market is crashing down? How do you make sound decisions with your investments? What will you do with your investments at the time of COVID-19?

If you’re an investor or want to start investing, this episode is for you. You will learn how to remain calm and be optimistic in any situation. Because really, no one can control the market. but you can control how you react. You can control the decisions you make with your money. 

Start walking the path of a successful investor as psychologist and behavioral finance expert Daniel Crosby talks about behavioral finance and the psychological, physiological, sociological, and neurological aspect of investment decision making.
