The correlation between news and the impact it can have on the markets, as well as specific investments, is supported by experience and research.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
RelateTheNews, a provider of a comprehensive platform of tools to measure news sentiment for specific investments and the market in real-time, has been selected to participate in the prestigious LAUNCH Festival.
Billed by some as “the greatest startup conference in the world,” LAUNCH Festival, which is being held March 2-4 in San Francisco, is expected to attract 15,000 attendees, making the presence of RelateTheNews another watershed moment in the technology company’s short history.
It’s “another” moment because RelateTheNews is also being considered for a 2016 Benzinga Fintech Award, which is “a competition to showcase the companies with the most impressive technology, who are paving the future in financial services and the capital markets.”
One reason that RelateTheNews is being recognized in both instances is because of the growing awareness that the news can affect investments.
“We now live in a culture where we are presented with overwhelming amounts of textual data - news, regulatory filings, social media, etc 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Our clients demand tools to integrate that information into their investment decisions” said Tim Decker, founder and CEO. “The correlation between news and the impact it can have on the markets, as well as specific investments, is supported by experience and research.”
Another powerful attraction, undoubtedly, was the fact that RelateTheNews’ technology is proprietary yet provided on an open platform.
“Our Insight Index™ scans the whole market as well as specific investments,” said Decker. “Traders and investors use this data to identify new trading opportunities, calculate effective entry and exit points for their trades and manage their portfolio risk. RelateTheNews provides access to this proprietary sentiment data via our website as well as licensing the sentiment data, software as a service(SaaS), or platform as a service(PaaS) to individuals and institutions. .
