Leverage a true understanding of crowd psychology to trade more profitably

From Richard Peterson—an emerging expert on the psychology of financial markets—comesTrading on Sentiment, The Power of Minds Over Markets, a thorough expansion of Peterson's earlier works that explains how crowd psychology moves market prices around the world. Readers will quickly get up to speed on the latest tips and techniques on sentiment analysis and trading, with points driven home by real-world examples from global stock markets and a history of crowd behavior in markets that sheds light on why trading on sentiment is so powerful.

Each chapter of this engaging, practical work begins with an unusual, real-world investment story, followed by an analysis of the neuroscience that played into the tale and additional examples of similar market action. Chapters are then summed up with exercises that investors can use to build their mental skillset based on the newly-learned concepts about the integration of information, biology, and markets.
