Hindsight bias

Hindsight bias in statistical analysis refers to the decisions made by a portfolio manager which uses historical financial datas that is not very relevant to the manager's decision making at a particular target period and in turn affects the performance of the managed fund. It is simply an assumption that a particular event regarding a stock is more predictable than it really is and then after the event passed, the manager thinks that the outcome was already known before it happened.
