Investors' trading activity: a behavioural perspective
AbstractThis paper discusses whether psychological biases (overconfidence and mood), and social intelligence (in the form of self-monitoring) influence individual investors' decision making and their trading behaviour (trading frequency, volume and performance). Indeed, the literature review reveals that there is an association, between these parameters and trading behaviour. In conclusion, a new research model is proposed to confirm these relationships. The use of this model will expand investors' knowledge about financial decision-making process and trading behaviour.
