Interactive Sentiment Index

In recent years, the interest in a timely analysis of financial news and disclosures has grown substantially. Companies with publicly-traded stock on German exchanges are by law required to publish financial statements (half-year results, etc.) and any news that could have a material impact on the stock price or possibly affect the redemption of the companies' bonds, as so-called “ad-hoc notification”.

The aim of this project was to present an up-to-date view on the aggregated sentiment contained in these regulatory announcements. Considering the large number of financial announcements published every month, the sentiment needs to be updated regularly. Therefore, another main goal of this project was to build an infrastructure and implement an update process that needs little to no human oversight once it is running.
