What is news analytics and how to perform it?
News analytics is concerned with the quantitative analysis of news streams. It also implies the procedural steps needed to turn news into quantitative metrics and time-series. News analytics allows three major applications: (a) the scientific consideration of qualitative dimensions that have previously been ignored in the study of individual events, (b) the repeated longitudinal consideration of similar sequences of events, and (c) from a practical perspective, novel trading strategies and other practical applications that draw on the capability to plot firm behaviors. The figure beneath sketches the analytical framework implemented on this website (please also view this step-by-step tutorial).
