This repository releases a comprehensive dataset for stock movement prediction from tweets and historical stock prices. Please cite the following paper [bib] if you use this dataset,

Yumo Xu and Shay B. Cohen. 2018. Stock Movement Prediction from Tweets and Historical Prices. In Proceedings of the 56st Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics. Melbourne, Australia, volume 1.

Stock movement prediction is a challenging problem: the market is highly stochastic, and we make temporally-dependent predictions from chaotic data. We treat these three complexities and present a novel deep generative model jointly exploiting text and price signals for this task. Unlike the case with discriminative or topic modeling, our model introduces recurrent, continuous latent variables for a better treatment of stochasticity, and uses neural variational inference to address the intractable posterior inference. We also provide a hybrid objective with temporal auxiliary to flexibly capture predictive dependencies. We demonstrate the state-of-the-art performance of our proposed model on a new stock movement prediction dataset which we collected.

Dataset Overview

Two-year price movements from 01/01/2014 to 01/01/2016 of 88 stocks are selected to target, coming from all the 8 stocks in the Conglomerates sector and the top 10 stocks in capital size in each of the other 8 sectors. The full list of 88 stocks and their companies selected from 9 sectors is available in StockTable, a facsimile of the paper appendix appendix_table_of_target_stocks.pdf.
