💰Invest in Brom's Psychedelic VC Fund:

🚀 Are you degen trader that's down 50% on a MindMed yolo?  I'm your stock therapist and I'm here to help you understand your emotions.  In this video I go over some basic behavioral economic concepts (like utility theory, risk aversion and risk seeking) and demonstrate how they apply to the psychology of traders using MindMed as a case study.    

Questions answered:
- What should MindMed investors do now that they're 50% below the highs?
- Why are emotions so much higher with meme stocks?
- Why do we get more skittish as stocks climb higher?
- Why do losses after big wins bother us more than losses after small wins?
- How can we be more rational investors?
