An introduction to behavioral finance cognitive biases


Some basic understanding of finance


Welcome to the homepage of my second course in English regarding market finance, this time focused on behavioral finance. I created this course because I believe that behavioral finance and cognitive biases are fascinating subjects but still too little known by the general public. Moreover, these biases can be very punishing for novice investors. It is therefore important to be aware of them and to know how to protect yourself, to avoid falling into stupid traps. The objective of the course is to provide a solid foundation of knowledge on the topic and to explore the different types of biases that can be found in the trading world. The course is divided into 5 parts, covering the following topics:The link between behavioral finance and the financial markets;Cognitive biases;Emotional biases;Group effects (social cognition);Strategies to improve decision making         Do not forget that I am also here to answer your questions if you have any. Finally, you can access my other training courses on the topic of market finance, also on Udemy :In English: An introduction to Asset Classes (Equity, Bonds, FX…)In French:Les fondamentaux de la bourse et du trading La bourse & les produits dérivés (swap, forward, option…)La finance comportementale et les biais cognitifs
