Markit Taps SMA for Social Media Sentiment Indicators

tim sargent markit

The 22 new social media indicators, which cover SMA's entire universe of over 3,200 stocks, will be delivered via flat file 30 minutes before US market open or in 15-minute intervals via an API, depending on clients' requirements. Some of the indicators─such as S-Factors, which measure the aggregate sentiment of a particular stock relative to the aggregate sentiment over past 20 days─are sourced directly from SMA, while others are proprietary signals developed by Markit, but which use SMA data.
