But sometimes he can't find it right now 652 now Stephen did not grant talking about making negative and the positive. Yes is our guest is done let's turn out to frown upside down. It's just human nature Steve. People complain that's right just flip nevermind. People played more than they will compliment Stanford University communications professor Clifford Nass has studied this. And determined that we naturally to rejuvenate more about unpleasant events than positive ones. Thus we spend more time he's stronger words and emotions to describe negative events the same goes for investing. We react more negatively to investments dropping. Then we react. Positively. When the accounts are up and I can tell you that first and very few people coming and say hey Don my accounts up 40000 bucks easily say. And when it's down they get mad at me so anyway the innate human be favored in behavior can cost us. Investment data shows that investor returns. Lagged behind professionally managed fund to return to the conclusion. Is that investors can get emotional and react more aggressively. Losses than to gains. Individual investors get greedy when the sector surges and they sell out of fear. When they plunged. Rebalancing requires. An opposite discipline. When you're rebalance you take gains off of the surging sectors pick Moffett cable in use that money to feed the plunging assets. It seems counterintuitive. But in spite of the contrarian field that. We're preserving gains and we put them to work where there's a sale going on. In another investment sector inevitably that comes back around. Think about your investments for example how did you react when the market tanked in the 2008 real estate bubble. If you were mad anxious and and to a bundle of nerves now is it time to take a close look at your tolerance for risk. And it's time to make some changes if necessary. Ups and downs are the nature of many investments particularly those in stock market and your time horizon is long you can handle some risk for greater returns. But even with the long horizon it's time to seek other investment solutions if you think the U suffer from the fear and greed cycles.
