Developing and applying a new market sentiment index based on text data

Research leader:

Yoichi MATSUBAYASHI, Professor, Faculty of Economics, Kobe University


Research outline:

Our goal is to develop a forecasting system which enables us to understand the macroeconomic trends in real time by using the “text data” provided by fast media reports. We hope that this system will be used by research institutes and companies for economic forecast and analysis, as well as business planning.
