US Sentiment Continues At High Levels

Posted by at
This month's calculation of the US Sentiment Index is based on a larger coverage of equity events than in previous studies. RavenPack has gone from probing about 170 different news events to covering more than 270. Especially, there is more coverage around clinical trials, mergers and acquisitions, and regulatory issues. With so many scheduled and unscheduled firm-specific events covered, it creates an opportunity to develop special indexes based on certain types of news only like earnings or products and services.
