Framing Effects, Selective Information and Market Behavior ­ An Experimental Analysis ­

Erich Kirchler, Boris Maciejovsky and Martin Weber

Papers on Strategic Interaction from Max Planck Institute of Economics, Strategic Interaction Group

Abstract: The results of an asset market experiment, in which 64 subjects trade two assets on eight markets in a computerized continuous double auction, indicate that objectively irrelevant information influences trading behavior. Moreover, positively and negatively framed information leads to a particular trading pattern, but leaves trading prices and trading volume unaVected. In addition, we provide support for the disposition eVect. Participants who experience a gain sell their assets more rapidly than participants who experience a loss, and positively framed subjects generally sell their assets later than negatively framed subjects.
