Brain Scans of Traders

Easan Katir forwarded me this interesting Bloomberg Article titled Brain Scans of Traders Show Link Between Lust for Sex and Money (PDF). With a critical eye to the reporter’s use of jargon, Easan commented to me:

“Reporter writes that Richard Dennis’ $200 million fortune due simply to “uncanny knack for knowing when to buy and sell.” Ignoring system design, backtesting, position sizing, trend following, etc. Sheeesh!”
