    Investor sentiment and analysis of media coverage are new frontiers to explore in understanding stock market gyrations. The news unconsciously affects investor behavior, which in turn moves the stock market. Thus analyzing investor behavior could potentially reap enormous profits, says behavioral finance expert Richard Peterson , a board-certified psychiatrist and CEO of MarketPsych in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Peterson’s new book, Trading on Sentiment: The Power of Minds Over the Markets, explains how to potentially “time turns in the stock market using media sentiment at the bottoms and tops of the business cycle.” The book was published by Wiley Finance in March. http://www.forbes.com/sites/trangho/2016/05/14/2936/
