Předběžná náplň práce v anglickém jazyce
Much of the economic and financial theories presume that individuals act rationally in the process of decision making, by taking into account all available information. But there is evidence to show repeated patterns of irrationality in the way humans arrive at decisions and choices when faced with uncertainty. Behavioral finance, a study of the market that draws on psychology, throws light on why people buy or sell stocks and why sometimes do not buy or sell at all. The most crucial challenge faced by the investor is in the area of investment decisions. The profit made, or losses incurred by an investor can be attributed mainly to his decision-making abilities. The fact that even the most prominent and well-educated investors were affected by the collapse of the speculative bubble in the 2008 subprime crisis proved that something was fundamentally missing in the traditional models of rational market behavior.
In this study, the aim is to establish the existence of such fundamental issues, driven by various psychological biases, in the investment decision-making process. Behavioral economists firmly believe that psychological factors influence investment decisions. They argue that today’s investment decisions demand a better understanding of individual investors’ behavioral biases. However, many economists believe completely in the application of traditional theories in the decision making process and hence do not consider the concept of irrational behavior. In this context, it seems relevant to check whether the behavioral factors have an influence on the decision making process of portfolio investors.
A questionnaire will be formulated and distributed among the clients of a brokerage firm in India and their investment decisions and effects of behavioral factors on it will be studied. The focus will be on individual investors as they are more likely to have limited knowledge about application of traditional theories in decision-making and hence are prone to making psychological mistakes. The primary analysis would be focused on determining whether behavioral factors affect the investors’ decision to buy sell or hold stocks.
