Presentation Topic: Quantifying human emotions into charts in times of volatility

Hesitation and aimless execution causes the retailers not to react to the market movement even when there is a clear trading signal. Thus, they lose money and give up by not operating according to the plan. It is proven that vast knowledge in financial markets is not the only key to a successful trading journey. Attitudes and emotions carry extra weight in order to survive and profit.

Nor Akmar will be discussing about the general phase and journey each retail trader in the stock market must encounter. She will elaborate on how charting can help them to keep their doubtful thoughts and unsteady emotions at bay.
