Investment decision making is a process of selecting the best alternative from a number of alternatives that are available under the influence of complex situations.

The purpose of this research is to examine the contribution of Anchoring Bias, Loss Aversion, and Overconfidence of Active Students in the Faculty of Economics and Business UPN “Veteran” East Java as investors in improving investment decision making.
