Analyzing NLP for trading insights to assist trading decisions

How ModelOp Center supports trading decisions at a large US broker-dealer

Business Case

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) makes key decisions about interest rates and the growth of the United States money supply. The FOMC meets twice quarterly and releases the minutes from the meetings with a delay.

Though the meeting minutes are released after key decisions have been made (e.g., interest rate increase), the commentary on major macro economic indicators can provide insight into future quarterly decisions by the FOMC.

If one could infer, in real-time, the economic indicators and the accompanying sentiment, you would have an early market advantage in determining future key decisions.

Model Deployed in Business

ModelOp operationalized the life cycle of a real-time, NLP model that identifies major economic topics within FOMC meeting minutes and the associated sentiment on those topics. This model is being used to guide trading decisions for our customer.
