Derwent Capital Markets are ahead of both the game and the competition when it comes to the financial market and spread betting, they manage to do so by using sentiment analysis, which derives from social media data on a very large scale. By scraping tweets the system works by searching for keywords to track and stream the sentiment from. This gives a real world, live feeling for people’s views and opinions on shares, currency and many commodities meaning you can more or less read when, and in which rough direction the shares will be moving.
