Sentiment Analysis

Sentiment Analyzer is a powerful and efficient solution that automatically extracts sentiments (positivity/negativity), opinion objects (e.g., product features with associated sentiment phrases) and emotions (like, excited, anger, disgust, etc.) in unstructured text data. The graph shows the net number of mentions of positive versus negative sentiments expressed in each period on a specific topic, gleaned from the thousands of forecasts being added to the service each month.

Global Sentiment is a coincident Indicator of emerging change. As pictured above it analyzes the mood of the pundits who are reporting on the future. Since pundits generally reflect the mood of society and change society's opinions it is a good indicator of people's current view of the future.

Economy Watch is a lagging indicator of emerging change.  It auto-aggregates opinions of our 10,000+ sources on whether the global economy is likely to grow or decline in the near future. Get a fast, up to the minute, handle on global optimism or pessimism and take action as you see fit.

VUCA World is a leading indicator of emerging change. It describes whether reported volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of general global current conditions and situations is getting better or worse. Movements up or down in this graph generally presage the same effect in the other two charts presented here, over time. Get a fast, up to the minute, handle on global optimism or pessimism and take action as you see fit.

  • The combination of these three charts gives you an overall picture of where the global economy is heading. Right now, it's seemingly stable but with degrees of uncertainty caused by heightened policy uncertainty, protectionist pressures, and risk of financial market disruptions. Sentiment could shift rapidly if a clear and present geopolitical event, caused by a paucity of international leadership and diplomacy shocks the markets. This coupled with the high-risk combination of record debt, asset bubbles, low growth, and limited scope for action could see the global economy spiral into a new crisis. We place the probability as high as 30%: up from 25% in January 2017. A correction could come as soon as this year but more likely 2019.

Please be patient. It's also why we restrict the results to the last six months. You can ask us to create graphs with longer timeframes out of peak hours]  Kind regards Athena @ ST
