by Katherine Massie

Make better decisions in global equities, currencies and market timing with media analytics

Most investors suspect that market psychology – such as cycles greed and fear – influences asset prices, but there is little systematic research into why this occurs and how traders can take advantage of it.

Evidence from the emerging field of sentiment analysis demonstrates the importance of media and information flow in fueling price patterns such as overreaction and underreaction. Sentiment refers to the feelings, attitudes and beliefs of investors, and in this webinar we demonstrate evidence that the sentiments evident in news and social media, and extracted through text analytics, can significantly lead price action.
