Investment Losses Loom Larger Than Gains – Podcast 192

7th September 2020

Paddy Delaney

What’s Love Got To Do With It, Baby

They suggested that we hate losing something about twice as much as we enjoy gaining something! Think about it – in all walks of life it holds water. Take ‘love’ for example. I remember vividly when I was unceremoniously dumped by my first girlfriend! I was about 15 at the time – and ‘devastated’ was not the word for how I felt! Despite my father telling me; ‘Cheer up son, the next one is always better’ (!!!!) I was inconsolable for a week or two.

Did ‘the next one’ bring as much joy as the being dumped brought pain? We’ll see!

We also share details of the internationally recognised ‘Investor Fear Gauge’ that could very well be one of the great hidden gems!
