Big data is about to change financial markets completely.

Companies confronted with big data analysis are challenged with keeping track of all the relevant information. Besides, markets are not structured and following conventional patterns but rather driven by emotions.

Traders and investors alike need to tackle these new challenges by implementing high speed methods and conquering a market that is so time critical that a split second can mean the win or loss of millions of dollars.

What we do

We detect market moving news, in realtime.

Our algorithms are a combination of different parts of statistical analysis and machine learning. They enable customers to successfully make data-based decisions by giving them exclusive access to highly valuable information and unique advantages over competitors. This is ensured by an innovative parallel analysis of information diffusion on the web and orderbook activities. The model maximizes prediction speed and accuracy while minimizing trading risk.

We have a passion for computer science and financial analysis.
