1 min read Published: 23 Jul 2023

Episode 424 - On this week’s episode I reveal the stock indices that I track on my phone each morning and how I use them to build a picture of what is likely to be driving investment markets. I also talk about the 'Six thinking hats' principle which can help provide a framework for informed financial decision-making. Finally, I talk about the halo effect, explaining what it is and how to avoid falling foul of it.
