'To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual insights, or inside information. What's needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework.'
It's no secret that if you want to master the market, your best role models are the most successful investors. They evaluate new information and consistently use their knowledge to make winning decisions about whether to buy, sell, hold or stay out of the market. Their edge is not that they know more than we do. They succeed because they think differently, using decision-making strategies to avoid the natural thought patterns--or cognitive biases--that hold us back in our investing.
