  • This file is collected from running queries with stock tickers to CityFalcon ( It is still under construction and cleaning for better matching accuracy.
  • JSON schema: {"alias":"american airlines group","ticker":"AAL"}

Predicting Result

We found that a Linear Regression model could get quite good result. The comparision of different reacting time shows that the stock is sensitive to the financial press. The 7 minutes reacting time has highest accuracy among others. screen shot 2018-03-21 at 8 02 36 pm

Also, here is a sample of HeatMap of investment table, x-axis is company name represented by stock ticker, and y-axis is date of month. Well konwn companies like Google or Apple were on the press very often, but others like AMD showed up just once at that month.

  1. Stocks that do not have contineuous by-minute price record needs better simulation. Currently, the simulation is done by having all the missing records be the one that appear the latest. We need to mock up the missing price in a linear fashion between two price record.
  2. Inspect the alias2ticker json file:
  • To eliminate confusing aliases.
  • To remove aliases that referring to non-US traded ticker symbols.
  • To add potential match-able aliases.
  • To add ticker symbols that constains .[dot]
  • To add alias-ticker pairs for missing tickers.
  1. We have not tried the Deep Learning approaches; however, past researches have shown steep improvement with DL.
  2. Automate the data ETL process.
  3. Render real-time result on Tableau.


  1. Currently, the target is computed from the average price of the open, close, highest, and lowest. We have not take the volume into the training. We should also try to work out variations on target value.
  2. Consult with Financial Engineering researchers on constructing models that have more factors in consideration.
