Bear in Mind: Cognitive bias in investing

Cognitive biases can impair investment decisions and cause us to make costly mistakes. We discuss the different biases, how to mitigate their impact, and even how to profit from bias in the market.

We discuss loss aversion, the endowment effect, anchoring bias, the bandwagon effect, survivorship bias, and confirmation bias.

In the Dumb Question of the Week, we answer a listener’s question: When should you cut your losses on an investment that keeps falling?
