The field of Behavioural Finance, is a relatively new science and it combines economics with psychology. The psychologist Amos Tversky and Nobel Prize Winner in Economics Daniel Kahnemann developed the basics of behavioural finance. The economists showed behaviour patterns that had, up until then, been ignored by supporters of rational decisions. These behaviour patterns develop because logical thinking – especially in situations of uncertainty – is often overpowered and overruled by emotion. Therefore, a deeper look at this subject is not only interesting for economists, but also for investors and traders.
