Engaging with researchers from MAN group, teams of OMI researchers are investigating the potential of state-of-the-art machine learning and natural language processing techniques to automatically uncover and exploit publicly available textual information in order to gain a predictive edge over pure time series approaches. Applications vary between projects and span a range of asset classes, including equities, FX and cryptocurrencies. In collaboration with researchers at Harvard, we are also studying the potential exploitation of news sentiment propagation and network effects.
