SMA releases ‘Crypto Fast’ Sentiment Data Feed

Social Market Analytics (SMA) the leader in predictive social media data feeds has added the ‘Crypto Fast’ to its suite of API data feeds. SMA’s S-Factor and Activity Cryptocurrency data feeds have been in production since December 2017. “Clients asked for a bespoke feed for a shorter baseline with 1-Hour price projections. Although clients can create their own baselines and metrics with our Activity Feed, clients wanted SMA to do the development work and produce and support the product which has been named ‘Crypto Fast’.”
The SMA Crypto Fast Feed provides faster moving signals than the SMA S-Factor feed. The S-Factor Feed is a 24H lookback with a 20 baseline with decay which supports intraday out to 2-3 trading days. SMA’s Activity Feed is in isolation of what happened in each minute, which can be narrow to HFT or customized to any period including W, M, Q.
Like the calculation of SMA’s S-Score, the ‘Crypto Fast’ is a normalized sentiment score with a shorter 1H lookback period with a 12H baseline to better take into account the high volatility in the cryptocurrency market. For each crypto asset, SMA makes a 1-hour price projections based on its Crypto Fast and price momentum. SMA provides a projected return, as well as a projected range on the return with a 95% confidence interval. The accuracy field reflect how often the subsequent return has fallen within the projected return range historically.

Social Market Analytics Identifies Most Accurate Twitter Accounts

Social Market Analytics aggregates the intentions of professional investors as expressed on Twitter.  We identify these professional investors using our proprietary twelve factor ranking system.  One factor is the forward accuracy of Twitter accounts.  If a Twitter account is Tweeting bullishly based on our patented NLP process and the security subsequently moves higher over specified periods that account is deemed to be accurate over that period.  Overall accuracy is aggregated across time for each account.  We have been tracking account accuracy out-of-sample for the past seven years. – it is impossible to recreate this data.  SMA is the only provider with out-of-sample account accuracy.  We found significant variability in account accuracy for supposed professional investors.  Social Market Analytics account scoring algorithms are extremely effective in excluding non-professional professionals.

SMA’s Accurate Account algos aggregate expectations from the most accurate Twitter accounts for individual securities for a specified time period: 1-Day, 2-Day, 1-Week, and 1-Month holding periods.   Definition of ‘Accurate’ – correctly identifying directional movement of the security’s price.  We do not include size of move – their sentiment is positive and the security moved higher.

We calculate consensus expectations of these accurate accounts on individual securities.  Accurate account universes differ across holding periods. Some accounts are more accurate in the short-term (Day trades), while others are more accurate for longer holding periods (up to one month).

Securities with significant consensus for both long and short are available through our API’s, Widgets and in Reports.  Below is a widget identifying securities with the most positive and negative consensus.   In this example, SMA’s accurate account universe is currently 100 bullish on MCO over the next 24 hrs.  Positive, negative and neutral are identified separately.
