It’s quite common for investors to get caught up in the moment and make poor investment decisions.

According to psychologist and financier Dr. Walter F. Wild, winning investment decisions avoid both unjustified hope and fear in the decision.

In his new book Winning Investment Decisions, Wild shares how to avoid psychological pitfalls that can entrap the investor into both loss and missing good opportunities.

“It’s quite common for investors to get caught up in the moment and make poor investment decisions,” says Wild. “If you learn how to prevent this, you’ll make more profitable decisions.”

Winning Investment Strategies highlights market behavior and investment strategy while providing a unique perspective on the opportunities, dangers and false representations an investor faces.

Wild, an expert in both fields, exposes financial and psychological realities that break common financial myths in his book.

Providing insight into investing profitably and safely, Winning Investment Decisions also offers guidance for readers who may not yet have confidence in their investment decisions but want to avoid the extra cost or impact of poor advice from a financial manager.
