How to Get Market Signals from Twitter for You and Your Clients
Did you know the latest Samsung phones are coming out with the Facebook App baked in, and that you can’t uninstall it? How about that Apple will finally be releasing their own case with a battery inside? The cat is out of the bag folks. Twitter is better than single analysts at announcing if not predicting market movements with twitter alerts. Just read this quote from Blackwell Global Partners regarding a National Bureau of Economic Research Study:
Twitter Sentiment 4x More Profitable than Standard Carry Trades
“The usefulness of Twitter data has also been established by several research studies. According to a paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, a study of all tweets between October 9, 2013 and March 11, 2016 related to the EUR/USD pair revealed that traders who would have solely relied on Twitter sentiment would be almost four times more profitable than those using a standard carry trade strategy.”
Get Market Signals from Twitter
So you want to capture some of this crowd analysis for your own benefit? Well, somebody calls Jordan Belfort and tell him to get a new nickname, because there’s about to be a new wolf of wall street in town. Just kidding. But not really. You’ve got more drive than he ever had and a whole toolset at your disposal. Let us show you how to use it.
First To Know, First To Act with Twitter Alerts
Twitter is often the first place news appears, and that news often affects markets. Even when reporters are preparing to publish a report or a story, they often Tweet first before doing so, giving their audience and followers a chance at being the first to click and the first to share. Obviously, you’re going to build a list of your favorite influencers and folks that you already follow or have decided to follow. There’s no right or wrong way to do that list – here are several that we follow:
Zerohedge – @Zerohedge
Bloomberg Markets – @Market
MarketWatch – @MarketWatch
Blackstone – @Blackstone
Ray Dalio – @RayDalio
PAA Research – @ActAccordingly
Marc Andreessen – @pmarca
footnoted – @footnoted
Shortsighted Capital – @ShortsightedCap
Modest Proposal – @modestproposal1
Michael Batnick – @michaelbatnick
Wu-Tang Financial – @Wu_Tang_Financial
Now keep in mind, we all accumulate voices we like to pay attention to, voices that make us laugh or scratch our heads or feel compelled to share. Chances are you already have your own list even if some of the influencers on it are mostly for the fun…No list is going to be perfect, even the most well-curated cross-section of Twitter influencers is likely going to be incomplete for your particular subject.
So how do you aggregate huge quantities of tweets down into actionable items for your teams and your clients?
How do you decide to pull the trigger based off of the number of posts and reshares a particular hashtag or topic is receiving?
