behavioral finance
A theory stating that there are important psychological and behavioralvariables involved in investing in the stock market that provide opportunities for smart investors to profit. For example, when a certainstock or sector becomes "hot" and prices increase substantially without a change in the company's fundamentals, behavioral finance theorists would attribute this to mass psychology. They therefore might short the stock in the long term, believing that eventually the psychological bubble will burst and they will profit.

technical analysis
A method of evaluating securities by relying on the assumption thatmarket data, such as charts of price, volume, and open interest, can help predict future (usually short-term) market trends. Unlikefundamental analysis, the intrinsic value of the security is not considered. Technical analysts believe that they can accurately predict the future price of a stock by looking at its historical prices and other trading variables. Technical analysis assumes that market psychology influences trading in a way that enables predicting when a stock will rise or fall. For that reason, many technical analysts are alsomarket timers, who believe that technical analysis can be applied just as easily to the market as a whole as to an individual stock.
