QuantCube Launches Crude Oil Risk Sentiment Indicator

Alternative data specialist QuantCube Technology has launched the QuantCube Crude Oil Risk Sentiment Indicator, which uses natural language processing (NLP) in Arabic and English to accurately capture short-term market risk and predict price movements. By using Arabic social media data, information available on crude oil is increased more than five-fold, creating the most comprehensive crude oil sentiment indicator in the market, according to the company. The Indicator processes multiple factors impacting crude oil prices in real time, including OPEC meetings, production and stocks. As a result, Quantcube claims it can provide insights several hours in advance of traditional news outlets, giving commodity traders and hedge funds an edge in the market.
