Research Topic:
Herd Behaviour in Financial Markets - An Experimental Approach

Research Details:
Herd behaviour is claimed to be one of the reasons for price volatility and bubbles in the recent financial crises (see e.g. Chiang and Zheng, 2010). People herd because they believe the others have more information (Banerjee, 1992) or they concern about their reputation and compensation (Scharfstein and Stein, 1990). This thesis will examine the existence of herd behaviour in decision making of investors and CEOs using both experimental and empirical methods. Herding decision is also connected with subjects’ references. The results are expected to confirm the validity of herd behaviour in financial markets as well as enrich the literature on methods of examining herding.
