Incentive schemes, framing, and market behaviour: evidence from an asset-market experiment (joint with Xuegang Cui and Kun Zhang)

Date: Wednesday, Jan 19, 2022, 14:30 ~ 16:00
Speaker: Nick Feltovich (Monash University)
Location: 온라인 zoom 세미나
Abstract : We investigate how asset prices and trading behaviour are impacted by the structure and framing of incentives, using a lab experiment. Subjects buy and sell a high-risk asset, a low-risk asset, and riskless cash over 10 rounds. We vary, between-subjects, the incentive scheme (relative versus absolute performance), and how the variable component of incentives is framed (bonus versus penalty), while holding constant the convexity of incentives. Both relative-performance (tournament) incentives and penalty framing are associated with significant increases in the price of the high-risk asset, relative to either its fundamental value or to the price of the low-risk asset. Additional analysis shows significant gender differences in trading behaviour and performance, and evidence that the two may be connected.
