Surprisingly it’s the amygdala, the emotional section of the brain, which is one of the reasons why a majority of novice and even a few “seasoned” investors seem to consistently come up short. Discover how the amygdala constantly interferes with investor logic and profit. Learn about the amygdala so it no longer has power over you and can no longer interfere with intelligent investment decisions.
