Overconfidence Traders who are overconfident tend to trade more rapidly and tend to over trade. These traders lose money in commissions, taxes in addition to simply losing out on trades themselves due to the illusion of control.
Greater participation in trading stock makes some traders feel more in control even though they are not. These traders also tend to invest in smaller and riskier companies and lack portfolio diversification. Herding The psychology of investing tells us that many investors tend to follow the crowd. They hear of hot stocks and they jump on the bandwagon only to lose money.
Pass on these hot stock market picks. Even if they were money makers at some point, that time has passed. Find your own stocks to invest in based on your own proven research and analysis. Confirmation Bias Too often investors believe what they want to believe. An example of confirmation bias is when we become attached to a certain stock. Perhaps it performed very well in the past so we ignore all signs that it is currently not performing as well as it did and we invest anyway.
There are many factors to consider when studying the psychology of investing and how it affects stock traders every day. Successful investors understand investment psychology and all it entails, they have determined their strengths and their weaknesses, and they proactively practice and develop the skills necessary to controlling their trading emotions so that they are successful in the stock market.

Find the Market Bottom with Candlesticks March 17, Again, I like to look back at previous blogs to revisit where we thought the market was going. Below is a blog done as the euro sovereign debt bailouts regained life and there was another stimulus package coming. As the Euro sovereign debt bailout regains life and another economic stimulus package is on the horizon it may be time for traders to find the market bottom with Candlesticks. Two things drive stock and stock market prices.
These are the fundamentals of the economy and individual stocks on one hand and market sentiment on the other. In both trading and long term investing, margin of safety and intrinsic stock value are good measures of the value of a stock. What may look like a promising stock with a low price to earnings ratio may be underpriced as regards forward looking earnings but market sentiment may be such that the stock remains inactive and underpriced.
Market sentiment is the composite action of everyone from the day trader to one who only engages in buy and hold investing. While fundamental analysis helps spot hidden stock value in a bottoming market, it is often more profitable to find the market bottom with Candlesticks.
Stock technical analysis with tools such as Candlestick charts is useful in spotting new market trends and market reversal. It is fine to talk about finding bargains in a down market but just how long will the market be down and how long will a given stock be ignored by the market?
Both fundamental and technical analysis are necessary in both short term trading and long term investing. However, it is with Candlestick analysis that smart traders are often able to spot when the market is going to turn and profit from buying at the bottom. To find the market bottom with Candlesticks, either for the market in general or for individual stock prices, traders follow stock price patterns and their representations as easy to read Candlestick signals.
A commonly useful signal is the Doji Candlestick. This Japanese Candlestick signal indicates market indecision. It is useful in predicting a market rebound or a correction in an ascending market. The Doji is a very short to virtually flat candlestick with long upper and lower tails.
It tells us that the market opened and closed on a stock at nearly the same price but that the market tested both higher and lower during the trading period. This signal often precedes a breakout. It is not especially useful in a flat market as it does not tell us in which direction the stock market or individual stock will move but in an upward or downward trending market it commonly warns the trader of a turnaround.
In a falling market it is a way to find the market bottom with Candlesticks. After a recent sell off took two and a half trillion US dollars of value out of the markets many are predicting that the market has hit bottom. The smart stock investor or stock trader will not rely upon the pundits. He will work to find the market bottom with Candlesticks and profit thereafter with Candlestick trading tactics. Spinning Top October 9, Spinning Tops are depicted with small bodies relative to the shadows.
This demonstrates some indecision on the part of the bulls and the bears. They are considered neutral when trading in a sideways market. However, in a trending or oscillating market, a relatively good rule of thumb is that the next days trading will probably move in the direction of the opening price. The size of the shadow is not as important as the size of the body for forming a Spinning Top.
Candlestick patterns are clear and easy to identify demonstrating highly accurate turns in investor sentiment. Japanese candlestick patterns consist of approximately 40 reversal and continuation patterns which all have credible probabilities of indicating correct future direction of a price move.
However the twelve major candlestick patterns provide more than enough trade situations to most investors. There are only twelve major patterns that should be committed to memory but this does not mean that the remaining secondary patterns should not be considered. In fact those signals are extremely effective for producing profits.
Reality however demonstrates that some of them occur very rarely. In order to utilize candlestick analysis to its fullest all patterns, including the spinning top should be used and understood. The twelve candlestick patterns illustrate the major signals. First, they occur in price movements often enough so that they are beneficial to producing a supply of profitable trades.
Second, they clearly indicate price reversals with strength enough to warrant placing trades. The twelve major candlestick patterns are listed below and as you can see each candle formation has a unique name. Some have Japanese names while others have English names. Recognizing and understanding the psychology that forms the spinning top and the major candlestick patterns will provide completely new insights for investors to understand optimal times to buy and sell.
Japanese rice traders realized that prices do not move based on fundamentals but instead that they move based on the investor perception of those fundamentals. The Doji signal is one of the most predominant reversal indicators. It is very effective in all-time frames whether using a one-minute, five-minute, or fifteen-minute chart for day trading or daily, weekly, and monthly charts for the swing trader and long-term investor.
