The continual search for alpha in trading today has lead to an explosion of interest in alternative information sources, such as social media (Twitter, Stocktwits and so on), and the use of artificial intelligence to make sense of it all. In the world of conversations and opinions it’s hard to sift through the noise and filter out the real events that are impacting the markets. Data mining, natural language processing and heavy retrospective analysis has shown there is valuable information, but there are significant challenges finding that information in real time. Working with Yedup we’ve built an AI system that can extract real-time alpha and provide an API feed of hundreds of stocks and their related companies and industries. Used by one of the worlds biggest market makers we talk through some of the architectural choices and approaches needed to realise the real-time AI found in the Yedup system.
