There has been growing recognition that factors other than fundamental financial information have an impact on investors’ decisions on whether or not to invest in financial products. As the accumulation of information makes it increasingly difficult to process all the data efficiently, it has been shown that the power of imagery tends to compete with that of objective technical indicators. This paper extends existing perspectives on the behavioural effect of agent metaphors and shows that the connected notions of rationality and responsibility implied by some metaphorical themes will induce investors to invest or not in specific stocks.
