Well, Mr Keynes certainly did. Keynes was a man of many parts, as well as an academic, a highly respected international economist, a director of the Bank of England, a key member of the management of the Cambridge Arts Theatre and a close associate of the fabled Bloomsbury literary set; he was a highly successful speculator.

This is obviously good and sensible advice, but commonsense is at a premium in finance. Of course, one would expect to find that investors will seek to maximise their profits and minimise their losses; but in fact it appears people are more worried about minimising their pain than anything else. Losses are painful, so we should expect to see a rush to exit losing positions. But in fact a lot of market activity involves avoiding taking losses, by deciding to simply let them run. This so-called loss aversion, or sunk-loss bias can have the paradoxical effect of actual increasing losses.
