SentiTrade® – Sentiment Analysis for financial market players incl. loss mitigation signals

Overview of sentiment development

The product SentiTrade® powered by our partner YUKKA Lab automatically detects whether the news sentiment in the financial markets is positive, negative or neutral. In addition, the tone of the content from the leading German ntews agencies is analysed in real time and expressed as a continuous sentiment and early indicator. The high quality of the analysis and the reproducibility represents a clear differentiation from the methods employed up until now of weekly surveys or social media analysis.

Signals on loss mitigation

Alongside the overview on sentiment development, SentiTrade makes clear loss mitigation signals available. BUY and EXIT signals for selected countries, regions and industries based on shifts in trends of the respective financial market sentiment. Compared over the long-term to “BUY & HOLD”, significantly less volatility can be achieved with equal or better performance.
