What We Do
Since 2004 MarketPsych has been leading research into natural language processing (NLP) and AI for financial applications. We are known for producing high-quality, rigorous, and point-in-time sentiment data. And we do much more…

We help organizations extract value and insights from large amounts of text - quickly and easily. Our products enhance client returns, reduce risk, and unearth key insights. Our clients are among the most sophisticated investment funds, banks, research firms, and agencies globally.

Our analytics identify and publish thousands of events, topics, perceptions, and sentiments in the information flow about millions of entities and assets. We map assets point in time across all common identifiers.
Our Team
MarketPsych is a contraction of Market Psychology. Our team’s background is rooted in quantitative finance, behavioral economics, and technology. We share a passion for advancing AI technology, finance research, and having a positive impact.

As quantitative analysts, our founders identified a hole in traditional financial data. If information flow moved markets, where could a quant find reliable data reflecting the beliefs, expectations, and events moving markets - market psychology? Over the next 20 years our team endeavored to produce the most reliable and robust sentiment and event data from unstructured text.

Bitcoin Sentiment Ahead of Halving
Bitcoin Sentiment Ahead of Halving
The overall media sentiment about bitcoin is in the high end of its range. According to academic research on social media and daily asset prices, "Sentiment predicts positive next-day returns, but attention predicts negative next-day returns." We see a similar effect at monthly and longer horizons for many assets (stocks, currencies, etc...). News media attention to bitcoin lately has been very high. The Bitcoin Halving is likely to occur in late April. From a psychological perspective, the increasing scarcity of bitcoin increases its attractiveness. Yet the last halving was May 11, 2020, and previously one occurred in July 2016. Before and after the past halvings, there was no clear price impact of the events. I've noticed in recent conversations at finance events that the launch of ETFs (specifically the SEC approval) has legitimized Bitcoin in the eyes of conservative financial institutions and family offices. Many are discussing new bitcoin products and investments. Surprisingly to me, the tradfi adoption of bitcoin as a store of value seems to be in early stages. So is Bitcoin peaking? What does the halving mean? It's hard to know in the short term: sentiment is higher (and vulnerable to a fall). The high overall attention implies downward pressure in future months. Longer term (years) the momentum is still positive.

Our Media-based Stock Prediction Model, Continued Outperformance
Our Media-based Stock Prediction Model, Continued Outperformance
We built a 30-day U.S. stock predictive model based on Media Sentiment using a simple Machine Learning algorithm - updated returns in the below image. Humans, even in hyper-competitive environments like the US stock market, respond predictably to news and social media content.The model was put in production in Aug 2019 and launched commercially on Jan 2020 in partnership with the StarMine team at LSEG Data & Analytics.The model ranks stocks (1 to 100) based on their likelihood of outperformance using a ML algo applied to only our LSEG MarketPsych Analytics news and social media-derived data. The blue line in the chart below depicts the spread between the top-ranked decile (10%) of stocks and the bottom-ranked decile - the absolute return portfolio. The gray-shaded regions are the 2-year training periods.The model performs similarly regardless of market cap. It is orthogonal to other StarMine models. It has about 30% monthly turnover, with no transaction costs assumed. Longer term models also work well with media data (we've tested out to 3 year forecasts).

Post Office Ltd and Fujitsu Scandal: Impact on ESG Scores
Post Office Ltd and Fujitsu Scandal: Impact on ESG Scores
For our UK readers, the evolving scandal at the UK's Post Office Ltd & Fujitsu is rapidly impacting Fujitsu's ESG scores. Background: The digital accounting system that the postmasters (regular people) entered their daily sales & cost calculations into were being fraudulently altered via remote access from the UK's Post Office Ltd / Fujitsu. In our ESG data Post Office Ltd has the lowest (1st percentile) Community & Social scores and a 4th percentile ESGControversies score (very bad). The blame has gradually shifted from Post Office Ltd to Fujitsu over the past month in social media, and Fujitsu's ESG scores have dropped substantially - see graphic below.

Bitcoin Momentum
Bitcoin Momentum
#Bitcoin sentiment has been at highs and the bull keeps running - a phenomenon we call sentiment momentum. In this paper we show that across thousands of global stocks, sentiment precedes price momentum (using Granger Causality Analysis), and the chart below illlustrates that effect in #BTC.In the chart, the black price bars are BTC/USD and the smooth lines are two moving averages of #sentiment (30 day and 90 day superimposed). The red shading indicates negative sentiment pressure (the 30-day sentiment is lower than 90-day), and blue shading indicates more positive sentiment.Social sentiment on BTC is the highest since 2020, and news sentiment is the highest since 2018. When sentiment falls substantially, we're likely to see a price correction, but that isn't happening yet.
