Dynamic regret avoidance
with Sasha Vostroknutov and Giorgio Coricelli [pdf] [show abstract]
We study experimentally how regret avoidance influences the decision to sell a stock while its price changes over time. Participants know beforehand whether they will observe the future prices after they sell the stock or not. Without future prices participants are affected only by past regret. When future prices are available, they also avoid future regret. The estimation of a structural model shows that, as the relative sizes of past and future regret change with the price, participants dynamically switch between them, with the larger regret term dominating the decision to sell.
