Sentiment Analysis of the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE)

For traders looking to gain a competitive advantage when it comes to trading Kenyan equities, stock sentiment analysis of the Nairobi Securities Exchange could provide the solution. Trader sentiment analysis provides an alternative method to analyze the performance of a particular stock. By analyzing the crowd psychology of a stock, traders can be presented with the opportunity to profit from short-term price movements as a result of the subsequent trader reactions. 

The emotions of traders can drive either bullish or bearish price movements. Due to the small window of opportunity, traders can not simply trawl through multitudes of messages and articles to understand the opinions expressed throughout the media and trading landscape. 

Instead, by utilizing stock sentiment analysis tools such as StockGeist, traders can receive immediate access to quantitative data covering the whole market. Sentiment analysis is already used extensively across major exchanges such as the S&P 500 and NASDAQ 100 indices. 

StockGeist sentiment analysis of the NSE is available as a custom project that can be integrated into your own project, or even as a standalone solution by itself. To see a live demonstration of StockGeist in action, please head over to our dashboard. To get started with your NSE sentiment analysis custom project, please contact us.

Sentiment Analysis features available for the Nairobi Securities Exchange

Every minute, thousands of people share their opinions online about companies traded on the African stock exchanges. StockGeist can be used to gather all of that data, count the number of messages and then create a rank for each stock. In addition, this data can be used to see the dynamics of a rank - i.e., how it changes in time. Finally, the user can explore the data across different timeframes (last 5 minutes, last hour and last day).
Stock Overview
When researching a company, investors will want to see two things: fundamentals (e.g., market capitalization, stock price, P/E) and the latest news. StockGeist takes a combination of these two and supercharges it with additional tools of sentiment analysis and key-topics.
The sentiment data can be presented to show the distribution of messages based on either their positivity or negativity. Moreover, we group the messages into two classes as being either informative or emotional.
The WordCloud lets you see the most popular topics the crowd is talking about. We do not use any filters for the language of the posts, so you have a chance to experience directly what is on the mind of the masses.
Your project could include daily updates of key financial information such as market capitalization and P/E ratio.
