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.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, An Analysis of Self-Identified Speculative Investors created by Harold Wynne, Richard J. Govoni, and Robert E. Mann
Journal/Publisher:Journal of Gambling Issues
Publication Date:July 2004, Issue 11
