There is only so much bandwidth in the human brain, which means we can only focus on a few things at a time. Remember, every decision we make has dozens, and maybe even hundreds of different underlying sub contexts. There are also feelings involved, instincts, and pure coincidence that can determine what we do, when we do, and who knows why we do the things we do anyway, we are irrational, after all.

The thing is, it is easy to stress out. It is estimated that we make 35000 decisions every day. Some of them involve the seemingly mundane, such as what type of cheese to put on a sandwich. Others, such as choosing our friends, partners, field of study, career, or which altcoins we buy are of monumental importance. However, we don’t always know which is one or the other.

With this much going on, it is not surprising that as much as 99% of our actions are driven by the subconscious. Now, consider that most of the trading volume in the financial markets these days comes from more than 14 million active on-line investors. That means that prices are determined from a set of 490 billion decisions on a given day, 485 billion of which on auto-drive, and helps explain why things are random.
