[en] We study the question if we can recover original traders’ price expectations in experimental asset markets if subjects receive the same pre-recorded information. Our results show reliable recovery of original traders’ median expectations across treatments. Treatment comparison suggests no effect on beliefs of subjects’ action space, whether subjects trade, act as price takers or only observe the market. Our results also suggest that we are unable to recover the individual expectations beyond the median expectation. Hence, we confirm the advanced observation of the experimental literature that expectations are heterogeneous and markets do not homogenize beliefs.
