We investigate behavior in laboratory asset markets in which traders are sometimes informed of asset values. We test whether traders overreact to uninformative trades, mistakenly inferring in-formation from them. The existence of price "mirages," caused by such mistakes, might ex-plain why asset prices seem to be excessively volatile.
