Boys will be Boys: Gender, Overconfidence, and Common Stock Investment    http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/odean/papers/gender/gender.html  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Theoretical models of financial markets built on the assumption that some investors are overconfident yield one central prediction: overconfident investors will trade too much. We test this prediction by partitioning investors on the basis of a variable that provides a natural proxy for overconfidence gender. Psychological research has established that men are more prone to overconfidence than women. Thus, models of investor overconfidence predict that men will trade more and perform worse than women. A paper on behavioral finance in PDF format. ...

The Courage of Misguided Convictions: The Trading Behavior of Individual Investors    http://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/odean/papers/Courage/courage.html  [ Edit ]  Site Reviews(0)
...Modern financial economics assumes that we behave with extreme rationality but we do not. Furthermore, our deviations from rationality are often systematic. Behavioral finance relaxes the traditional assumptions of financial economics by incorporating these observable, systematic, and very human departures from rationality into standard models of financial markets. This paper highlights two common mistakes investors make; they tend to disproportionately hold onto their losing investments while selling their winners, and they trade excessively. ...
