    Aww I'm glad

    Oooo ok, what was the psych event on?

    I didn't fast today...had to be drinking lots and lots of water and taking medication because I'm unwell
    How was yours (if you did :lol:)?
    It was just an ice breaker event where everyone got to know eachother. There were quite a few games which were fun. Qm is very multi-cultural so nobody felt out of place (something I was worried about). This girl told me that the psych course at ucl is 99% white so im sort of glad I didn't get in :lol:

    Ohhh i see hows the recovery gping darling?
    Haha :teehee: yeah i did. It was very hard (esp the last few hours before iftar!) because I didn't have sehri but I got through it alhamdulillaaaah

    Behavioural psych is AMAZINGGGG!!
    I did it at alevel and loved it! It basically says that we are a product of our surroundings (I believe in this theory). We're not gonna study it at uni till next year though. This year is full of biological psych which is HORRENDOUS. I bloody hate bio. The lat time I did it was at gcse and dont remember anything! Im siting there like "whats a neuron?" :lol:

    And the lecturers dont interact yhat much with the students so its hard to go to them after the lecture and ask
    ahh great, you studied. lets assume a relationship between positive future growth prospects and increasin interest rates. today the federal reserve announced an increase in central rates and there was an inverse correleation with the price of gold which went down. An increase in interest rates would assume contractionary fiscal implementation which suggests the S&P500* has stable growth. my hyptoheisis is that gold is used as a substitute investment product to hedge de risk of credit default of us firms when economic future is uncertain. now with relation to behavioural psychology attached to the field of finance, could it be possible to assume a psychological distinction with regards to individuals incentive to attribute past events with instinctive speculation to future potentieallities?

    so, even if a reason to why rates were increased is announced could you correlate the fact that investors supposed theory to why rates would increase would make peoples reaction to an increase consistent with expectations. how would you go about conducting a measurement which would show the relation between a populations behaviour vs efficient market valuations (supposing they're based on same determinents). what data gathering methods are used by psychologists?

    only comment on the behavioural psychology aspect of it. thats what i want to observe because i strongly support the notion of behavioural finance and the way economic agents react to changes in the core fundamental principles to economic drivers. i want you to clarify whether the possible correlations can be related to psycholoigical theory as i havent a great depth in that area. if there are theories to back it up, it would be worth me exploring.

    you said you did at a levels, either way you have more knowledge than me. there are repeated historic correlations between interest rate movement announcements and the price of gold. the price of gold moves inversley to the risk attatched to us equitie, but supposing there was no announcements on future prospect of us firms (S&P500) why would investors (the subjects in this psychological experiement) sell gold for equities, assuming all other factors stayed consistent.

    my question: why do people choose to act a certain way, in relation to incomplete information. is it due to historic occurencies? is it due to self-fulfilling prophecies in that leaders (respected investors) would influence others to make these choices, because they are percieved as 'reliable/correct'? What is the psychological incentives behind these investment decisions (other than the technical/fundamental understandings)?

    any1 else on this forum do psychology, feel free to assist me with this predicament

    Stop being so elaborate in your language if you want anyone to understand you and take your questions seriously. We understand you know how to use 'big words' and are well versed in economics and finance but those you are talking to atm aren't...take that into consideration please.

    'In relation to incomplete information'? Act what way and to what information? No one can tell you without knowing what information is giving to these people and in what sense the given info is incomplete.
    The only part I understand and can reply to is the leaders part. Figures of authority can influence behaviour a whole lot and are trusted when it comes to their actions and speech. What they say and do is seen to have some kind of reasoning behind it due to their authority (you wouldn't question a police officer pushing a man to the floor because of the uniform he wears). Therefore you would see what they do as the best thing (in the specific field they specialise in) and would attempt to follow the person to succeed....this is the same with past events, you see what works and doesn't work and base judgement on that to succeed.

    it would make no sense, without a context the question could be applied to. its a practical scenario to which an answer can be formulated. regardless, yes incomplete information to which investors speculate not based on fundamentals or technicals but simply of the notion of what other shareholders do/say. you suggest it challenges the theory of efficient market hypthesis and the basis for decisions is made with regards to the suggestions of supposed 'opinion leaders'.

    can the concept of behavioural psychology be used to argue for why arbiatrige opportunities can arise in different exchanges depending on historical events witnessed in different geographic regions (inferred from ur example). is the theory an underlying explanation to why individuals react in consistent ways to uncertain scenario? especially if no validated proof of correlation between two variables (in this case equity/gold) is seen.

    what good books are there surrounding behave psych?
