This article presents the study of optimism and various parameters of economic decisions among traders. There is a contradiction in literature: on one hand, according to the results of the research, optimism is a predictor of successful activity, on the other, it is the cause of errors, especially in making economic decisions. The study was conducted on 630 professional traders, a technology for studying optimism as cognitive distortion was specially developed, as well as a special technique for studying economic decisions. As a result, the parameters of economic decisions were revealed, as well as a positive relationship between optimism and decision parameters.
