Categories: Behavioral Finance, Portfolio Management

Besides that role, Pearlman is also a former hedge fund manager and a clinical psychologist so he is well-qualified to discuss behavioral finance, as well as a concept he is calling the “Freudian Put.” Last, find out what is happening at StockTwits firsthand.

    The market has a spiritual context and tone that lies under the veil of Wall Street antics, which is clearly appreciable.

    A behaviorally driven approach to the market takes one, one step closer that realm.

    • Hello Wayne,

      Given your comment above I think that you would like very much my book, The Intuitive Investor: A Radical Guide for Manifesting Wealth.

      Please continue to read The Enterprising Investor blog for additional behavioral finance content.

      With smiles,
