Research in psychology concludes that overconfidence reflects self deception. Such behavior may not only reveal in the daily life but also in the capital market. Empirical research shows that overconfident investors tend to overvalue the price of the securities so that they unconsciously buy the securities at a higher price or sell the securities at a lower price than their fundamental values leading to transaction losses. According to this experimental research design, all investors are classified into three groups based on their levels of overconfidence, namely the rational, the less, and the more informed investors. The result shows that when a feedback in the form of a guidance of securities prediction is given, the less informed investors tend to assess the precision of their knowledge and information excessively so that they increase price error, but the more informed investors tend to reduce it. Keywords: Overconfidence; Self-deception; Feedback; Price error
