In order to answer questions about the behavior of self-directed investors, Recognia recently conducted an international end-user research survey asking 500 participants who buy and sell financial instruments about engagement with their platform, how they conduct research, and their opinions on trading trends.
Recognia fielded a survey completed by self-directed investors to determine their needs, requirements and uses of investor education.
As a result of the market turmoil in recent years, value investing has had a resurgence in popularity.
As self-directed investors become more active in the markets as a result of a strengthening economy, they will have learned from lessons past and take a more watchful eye on their holdings. Using stops and stop alerts will help them control losses and manage risk.
