Moderators of Loss-Chasing: How Skewness, Information, and Framing Shape the Dynamics of Risk-Taking
We identify four factors that moderate dynamic risk-taking. People take on more risk following losses in positively skewed environments (low probabilities of large gains, high probabilities of small losses) and when they know the number of investment periods. Reframing losses as non-gains and risky options as defaults increases overall risk-taking.
