With a background in experimental and quantitative psychology, I decided to leave the field of research to study human behavior in the context of the markets.
I was initially captivated by the striking resemblance between the complex adaptive patterns, we observed in regards to neural firing patterns and that of market behavior.
No lab experiment can compare to the amount of data available about of behavior of market participants. Consequently, I left the narrow confines of institutional psychology for the infinitely more interesting challenge of approximating the behavior of markets, as related to the behavior of the rather heterogeneous body of participants.
While working for the Swedish online brokerage Nordnet Bank, I learned that very little exists in terms of education for the private investor.
In conjunction with my partner, whose identity i regretfully cannot disclose - but, who is an avid author on this site, I founded InvestABC.dk
The purpose of the business was to educate the growing body of private investors in the rudimentary principles of sound investing. We hope that through an enligtenment of the public, we can help families avoid the calamity of faulty investing - a tendency, which unfortunately seems to have become overly abundant in these volatile times.
Starting point: I'm new to the subject of Finance and Economics.
Reason to be here: to learn how to manage my money, and to better understand the currents of thought in the Financial World. The articles and discussions on the Seeking Alpha site are intellectually stimulating as well as rich in both practical as well as theoretical information/analysis from various perspectives.
The use of language is a particular interest. Much can be learned from, and revealed by, the deliberate and/or unconscious rhetorical devices and individual styles of the writers themselves, including myself of course.
I have a 4-year degree in psychology from a major public university and I speak German fluently.
