- [Narrator] If you have any money saved or invested, chances are that you're unsure what you should be doing about your investments. Every day, it seems like you see one headline recommending "don't bail on stocks now," then a few days later, you'll see the complete opposite from another market expert. "Are you ready for the huge coming financial collapse?" Mixed messages like this scare people into making bad decisions with their investments. In this course, you'll learn how to recognize behavioral biases and the investment pitfalls holding back your decision making. We'll help you to understand biases in the stock market and how you should respond to them. I'm doctor Michael McDonald. I'm a professor of finance, a Wall Street veteran and a frequent industry consultant.
