A New Path to Financial Insight
Sentimental Analysis is tightly related to Technical Analysis which is used for momentum trading.
Prior to the advent of ‘big-data’, Technical Analysis (which gauges the irrational behavior of markets through behavioral financial theory) was only used to trade without knowing the cause of the price movement.
With Sentimental Analysis, we now know how to differentiate financial sentiment news from non-financial news and trade on the same. This is a significant value to technical traders as they peg their trade to stock movements (triggered by sentiments).
The Co-Founders began discussing a potential framework to capture, understand, and correlate, available public data to help understand how different types of internet media were being used to disseminate stock market information. The primary goal was to understand who was accurately forecasting stock price direction, potentially influencing stock price, and then build a predictive model to one day predict stock price direction.
Pushing forward, the Co-Founders began to find signals in social media. Although weak at first, this advent proved cause to continue research. 2011 proved to be a turning point in what would later become the defined existence of Social Media Stock Sentiment as millions of users began flocking to both the internet and social media as a primary method of open communication transmitting both thoughts and collaboration every minute.
The Co-Founders continued building and experimenting with advanced algorithms to acquire, identify, classify, and correlate using NLP/TXT Mining/ Learning Process Technology. They were finding relevant data and stock sentiment embedded information amongst millions of chatter messages from people chatting about stocks.
