Acuity Trading has announced the official launch of their news sentiment tools on the Valutrades website and MT4 platform.
Valutrades, a Forex and CFD broker regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), have incorporated Acuity’s news sentiment tools in to their new premium product offering and features as part of their new marketing initiative #saveyourrobot.
Branding this particular suite of products as “Valusentiment”, clients of Valutrades now have access to new trade alerts and can manage their trades more easily with the Acuity tools, all powered by Acuity’s powerful news sentiment data.
Andrew Lane, CEO of Acuity Trading, said:
Valutrades have really grasped the concept and capabilities of news sentiment and how this can drive client trading activity; helping to boost trader confidence, simplify research and find new trading opportunities. It is evident that Valutrades have really taken the time to consider the needs of their clients, catering for beginner through to advanced traders, and our tools are well designed and equipped to support their objectives.”
Acuity Trading uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology to extract sentiment from millions of online news articles and social media messages to provide dynamic visualisations of how the market is feeling towards any given asset. Available on MT4, via API or as HTML5 widgets, Acuity Trading’s tools use hedge-fund level technology but have been specifically designed for the retail investor.
Graeme Watkins, CEO of Valutrades commented:
Acuity’s sentiment tools are rejuvenating the online brokerage market. The cutting edge technology used to create these tools really separates them from the more traditional tools that you find on the market. Acuity’s tools have applied the same institutional-level technology accessible only by hedge funds in the past and made it available to the retail investment community so that traders of all abilities can take advantage of the same, powerful data set. We believe these tools will make research and trading far more engaging and enjoyable for our clients, resulting in a much more positive online experience for traders of all experience.”
