Thomson Reuters Reveals Marketpsych 3.0
The new version, Marketpsych 3.0, has seen 'Over 400 news and social media sites, many specific to cryptocurrencies' added to the software's feed. Thomson Reuters claims that 'Each site is scanned and scored in true-time' in order to ascertain 'market-moving sentiments and themes.'
Austin Burkett, the global head of Thomson Reuters' Quant and Feeds, has stated 'News and social media are driving the investment and risk management process more than ever with the continuing rise of passive and quant-driven trading,' adding that 'As the financial marketplace rises in complexity, so too does the need to provide our clients with not only the relevant data, but the tools to help them manage and analyze that data. MarketPsych 3.0 helps deliver another layer of analysis and value-add in the investing process.'

Mr. Lee described the index as a contrarian indicator, stating that 'The last four times this was below 27 ['] there was not a single instance with bitcoin not up 12 months later.'
