About the Course:
One of the possible psychological explanations that has been put forth for more speculative marketplace behavior is that it may be gambling. Although assumptions have been made by some that aggressive trading may be a form of gambling for some traders and that speculative investing can be treated as another gambling activity, little research has been carried out on the relationship between gambling and investing. In this study, the authors examine the prevalence of speculative investing and its relationship to gambling and problem gambling.
