156. Why Do We Keep Making the Same Investment Mistakes?

May 17, 2023
Investing mistakes

Our relationship with money is much like the other emotional relationships we have in other parts of our lives. We tell ourselves we’re done making the same types of mistakes but end up repeating those same behaviors the next time the situation arises. The same thing happens in terms of how we invest our dollars and how we act when the market isn’t going up. 

In this episode, Laura Stover, RFC® and Michael Wallin, CFP® will dive into a recent article that discusses the behavioral side of investing and share what they’ve seen from people as they navigate the rough economic waters we find ourselves in. They’ll also talk about what’s being done from the Fed to improve market conditions and whether a digitalization of money is coming soon.

It’s important to have a financial professional on your side to help you through the good times and the bad. Understanding how our behaviors play a role in our decisions will hopefully help you avoid repeating those same mistakes both now and in the future.
