Two Year Platinum Subscription.
20% discount OR Free book.
With traders increasingly struggling to deal with crowded trades resulting from price and volume based models often chasing the same trade, model developers have been looking earlier into the event sequence to news, fundamental data and other, non-price data inputs. News analytics is without doubt one of the most exciting developing arts currently taking place in quantitative finance, and the process of deriving market sentiment from disparate and often quite obscure sources has fuelled imaginations and driven a thirst for information on the subject.
We now regularly field calls and emails from readers looking for more information. So, we were therefore pleased when earlier this year, Professor Gautam Mitra contacted us to give us a preview of his new book, 'The Handbook of News Analytics in Finance'. We were impressed. It is the most comprehensive collection of information on the subject that we've seen to date, and what's more it deals not just with theory, but also the practicalities of implementing news driven strategies. It's accessible, and here's the really good bit - it's free. From now until the end of July, we're giving away a free copy of the book (List Price $130/£80) with every Platinum subscription to Automated Trader - but just in case you've already got a copy, don't worry, there's a cash discount on offer too.
