A London-based hedge fund has announced that it will scrutinize sentiment based on Twitter traffic to discern trends that it assets will lead to a strategic investment edge. The trading strategy and algorithm seeks to discern measures of “anxiety” which were reported to correlate with future stock performance.
This is a novel implementation of the “buy on the rumor, sell on the news” investment approach. In this case the rumor, or irrational or unfounded information base is a congealed set of semantic models defined as “anxiety.” If I were an investor, the anxiety would be over the future of my portfolio.
