ABSTRACT

What makes a good trader

Experimental finance is an emerging fields of academic research that analyze data collected under controlled experimental setting and try to provide new quantitative insights to questions related to the field of finance. This approach takes paradoxes and biases in human judgment and decision making that have been demonstrated in the field of experimental economics and psychology. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in involving professionals directly in these experiments. The aim is to reduce progressively the gap between stylized modelling or experimentation towards a contextually rich experimental scenario. This talk will focus mainly on this body of literature, highlighting recent findings. These are fresh ideas for practitioners to stimulate reflection about or even understand weaknesses or opportunities in their professional life.
