29 days ago by Andreesen Horowitz

Every year, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) puts the latest and greatest developments in consumer technology on display in Vegas. But beyond the excitement and the hype, what’s really here — or not here — to stay? Will televisions roll up into tiny boxes? Will Alexa find her way into electric carving knives?

All Star Interviews Season 2, Episode 13: Brett Steenbarger, Trading Psychologist
2 months ago by Technical Analysis Radio

Having Trading Psychologist Dr. Brett Steenbarger on the podcast was a huge treat for me. He works with the best traders on planet earth on a daily basis. Needless to say, when Dr. Brett is telling me something, I want to listen. In this episode, he let me ask him all the questions I was curious about and he happily answered them all with solid advice and relevant anecdotes. We make a lot of mistakes as investors because of our many flaws as humans. When our stress levels are elevated we start acting emotionally, instead of rationally. Taking losses is a difficult task for us, even though we all know that losses are part of the deal. I really enjoyed this conversation and it could have gone on forever if I didn't end it. I hope you get as much value from this chat as I did. Click here to return to the episode page

When Will This Crash End?
