Making big decisions?
An excerpt from Fortune Magazine:
“When you see a trader panic, you can be pretty sure that for the next few hours, he’s going to lose money. All the base instincts in your brain–what I call “caveman brain,” the sort of fight-or-flight feeling of emotion that is designed to stop you from being eaten by a sabertooth tiger–takes over your decision-making. You start trading scared, taking smaller positions on good ideas and cutting profits too quickly.”
