Why have most stock and bond investors lagged the indexes so badly over the past many years? The answer is that they have tried unsuccessfully to time the markets, using a variety of techniques.

Motivating their actions have been a number of behavioral biases, prejudices, and slip-ups -- most of which derive from deep seated, hardwired emotional responses under the control of the most powerful part of the human brain. Behavioral-finance experts have studied these obstructions to productive investing, suggesting to use a range of strategies for sidestepping them.

The presentation blends behavioral psychology with investment strategy in an interesting mix.
