Joy Of Missing Out

1. concept

JOMO, or Joy Of Missing Out, is a term used in trading to describe the satisfaction or relief a person feels when they choose not to participate in a potentially risky investment, even if it proves successful for others. This can be due to various reasons such as risk aversion, different investment strategies, or simply a lack of interest in the particular investment.


"Despite the hype around the new cryptocurrency, John felt JOMO as he decided to stick to his conservative investment strategy."

2. psychology

JOMO can also be seen as a psychological response to the fear of missing out (FOMO). It represents a conscious decision to disengage from the pressure of keeping up with every investment opportunity and instead finding contentment in one's own investment decisions.


"In the face of rampant FOMO in the stock market, some investors find JOMO in sticking to their own research and not getting swayed by every trending investment."
