MarketBuzz 1.0 for iPad - What's Hot in Financial News + Social Media

in Finance (E)

[] Hong Kong - Technical Trading Solutions today is pleased to introduce MarketBuzz 1.0 - Stock Market Intelligence, their new Finance app for iPad that allows retail investors to analyze a stock's buzz compared to its historical average, alerting users to the stocks that are being talked about most right now. Featuring an integrated reader for the latest tweets, news, and blog articles on any stock, the app displays both long and short-term performance charts. In addition to look-up by name or symbol, MarketBuzz compiles the following lists based on buzz: Top 100 Stocks, Hottest Stocks, Stocks by Sector, and a Watch List.

Investors who are not hedge fund managers or quantitative analysts now have access to the same market intelligence as the professionals. The MarketBuzz data center monitors thousands of news, blog, and social media sites for coverage of the S&P 500 stocks, and it analyzes the data to identify those stocks whose buzz is greater than usual. This kind of data is invaluable, because it alerts market-watchers to a company receiving an out of the ordinary amount of coverage in the news and social media.

Once ranked according to buzz, stocks are displayed as large icons showing the stock symbol, the price change, and the number of news articles, blog posts, and tweets that have been published about the stock in the past 24 hours. Tapping a stock's icon opens a screen displaying an intraday stock chart as well as three columns with all recent news, blog, and tweet headlines about the stock. Browsing these headlines, users will learn why a stock is in play, and may use the app's integrated, full page, text-only news reader for comfortable reading.

Feature Highlights:
* MarketBuzz - Stock Market Intelligence provides information once available only to professional traders
* Top 100 Stocks, Hottest Stocks, Stocks by Sector, and a Watch List all ranked by buzz
* Integrated text-only newsreader
* Displays News, Blog and Twitter headlines in three columns
* Invaluable market intelligence in real-time with no subscription fees

From its home page, MarketBuzz offers a search field by name or symbol and the choice of four different lists: Top 100 Stocks, Hottest Stocks, Stocks by Sector, and a Watch List. The Top 100 includes the 100 stocks with the most buzz overall. The Hottest Stocks lists the stocks with significantly more buzz than usual. Stocks by Sector puts every member of the S&P 500 in a ranking within its own sector: Industrials, Financials, Health Care, Consumer Discretionary, Technology, Utilities, Materials, Energy, and Consumer Staples. Each stock is displayed as a large icon, which includes the corporate logo, ticker symbol, percentage of change, and the number of news, blog, and Twitter mentions in the last 24 hours. Icons are color-coded for quick identification through seven steps from bright green to bright red, showing movement up or down. Each list and chart can be displayed in real-time according to the following scales: 1 Day, 5 Days, 3 Months, and 1 Year.

"MarketBuzz provides the kind, quantity, and quality of market intelligence on the iPad that could have hardly been imagined just a few years ago," stated Timon Haringa of Technical Trading Solutions Limited. "MarketBuzz is the perfect complement to our best-selling finance app, iChartist Stock, Forex and Futures Charts."
