E1 - News Sensitive Stock Trend Prediction
From the stock market to the commodities market, Hong Kong's financial markets provide the opportunity for everyone to be involved in the local and international economy. This project focuses on predicting the impacts of the mass media on the movement of stock prices. In contrast to the traditional time series analysis, where predictions are made based solely on the historical performance of the time series, here, predictions are made according to the non-quantifiable information ¡V news stories. Our novel time series and text mining techniques allow us to figure out the inherent dynamics that drive movements in the prices of financial assets by news stories.
