Overview

Has your personality ever stood in the way of a winning investment decision? Have deeply ingrained assumptions about winning and losing kept your stock market performance below where it should be? In short, do you sabotage yourself? The Inner Game of Investing shows you how to identify your personality quirks and how to build on that knowledge to gain a huge investment advantage. The book explains why "knowing yourself" is vital to stock market practitioners. Enhanced self-knowledge leads to investment decisions that are more focused and based on what you know best. The result? Improved investment performance and less anxiety about your choices. This unique book guides you to your own best personal strategy by showing you what types of stocks fit your individual style. Written in an engaging style by securities analyst and long-time financial columnist Derrick Niederman, The Inner Game of Investing reveals the Seven Stock Market Personalities: The Bargain Hunter, The Visionary, The Contrarian, The Sentimentalist, The Skeptic, The Trader, and The Adventurist. You will be amazed to see how your own psychological predispositions may be blinding you to both habitual mistakes and golden opportunities. Niederman shows you how to apply the knowledge you gain in the form of practical, real-world buy and sell decisions. Niederman’s invaluable insights extend into other aspects of investing, including widely held beliefs about the irrationality and efficiency of the market, the psychological nuances of dealing with market professionals, and the psychology of analyzing stocks. The Inner Game of Investing could change the way you invest and raise your stock market skills to a level you never thought possible.
