    This is the first time I have heard of "endowment bias", it's good to have a label to put on it! :-) Thanks! How do you invert a chart? I get it mentally; but is there a website or something where you can flip the chart over so you can get a visual of what he is talking about, or is it just mental?

      Great question Karen. Many charting platforms have this feature although it's not often obvious how to do so. I know on StockCharts you just add a "-" before the ticker. Thanks for watching! Dave

    Would love to know more about which indicators advisors like to use, and which have proven to be successful at protecting investments on the downside! Great video though.

    Interesting that there are no comments so far. Coaching is always boring but so important. Dave focuses on discipline as a great tool to assist in life and trading. Good piece to provide some grounding and a framework to base all your trading.

    Really solid advice on trading and investing. Always good to have a process and understand your own biases. Agree with the comment on importance of discipline, as well as the importance of having a game plan/exit strategy. Thanks Dave.

    Excellent video but feel like I have seen it before. The story of landing in the field recall from another video.

      That story was first hand from one my mentors Tom Dorsey. Sadly he may not have been the only one to land in the wrong field! :) Thanks for watching D

    It is a good video this one. Nothing fancy but list some basic kiss important stuff. Relatively few moving parts. Mix of trend and reversion.
