For myself, I find the application of psychology to investing/trading both explanatory and predictive, and certainly it is at the root of the brouhaha over cap preservation/cap appreciation, a topic germane to the interests and goals of would-be fixed-income investors who frequent this message board, which should have received rational and dispassionate exploration, instead of the emotional and irrational posturing it did, notably on the part of the one Chicken Little in the crowd. The lessons that I take away from that discussion are many, and I'll deal with them at length in a book I'm working on, but for now I'm going to put the matter to rest. The markets are open, and there's money waiting to be made.A few suggestions on your book:1. Keep those sentences a bit shorter.2. Include a chapter on gamblers who derive pleasure from taking risks.3. Do not write a book based on a response to a momentary disagreement with someone.Regards,fingfool
