Something kinda sad about
The way that things have come to be
Desensitized to everything
What became of subtlety?
How can this mean anything to me?
If I really don’t feel anything at all?
Today’s quote from the rock band Tool may seem somewhat dark, but if you look a little closer you’ll find it has a direct relationship to investor psychology. You see, when the market is in decline for months at a time investors tend to become desensitized to their own losses. Once this happens, your money stops meaning anything to you and you just stop feeling the pain. To this I say; wake up! Don’t let your losses desensitize you to good judgment. Take control of your money now, before your psychology turns to the dark side.
