Staying Out of the ‘Feelings Corner’ & Examining Investor Psychology

Episode Notes

Jeff, Joe, and Kyle are back this week, kicking off the show by recapping last week’s market movements. The Dow Jones was down slightly, as was the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ. All three indexes remain in the positive YTD, though they seem to be feeling the effects of the summer doldrums that are typical for August. The Money Wise guys remind us that August’s lighter volume creates higher volatility days, and Jeff enters “the feelings corner” momentarily, only to remind us that following your emotions leads to bad financial decision-making. The guys also share their predictions for the short-term and beyond.

During the second hour, the Money Wise guys discuss Investor Psychology. You don’t want to miss it! Tune in for the full discussion at, where you can also learn more about the Money Wise guys or take advantage of a portfolio review and analysis with Davidson Capital Management.
