Anchoring bias - Season 1/Episode 9

The anchoring bias is a fascinating one, and part of the human psyche that is sometimes quite hard to understand. We get ourselves anchored to pieces of information that may or may not have any bearing on the facts and the decision we need to make.

To help unpack anchoring bias and how we can try to be aware of it in our lives, we talk to Louise Bedford. Louise is a best-selling author from Australia, a trading mentor and she hosts her own podcast – Talking Trading. It’s safe to say that Louise knows what she’s talking about on the topic.
