Market Trends vs News Media Sentiment

Zach Hafen-Saavedra, Michael Luo, Tejaswi Tripathi, Parham Hamidi, Himanshu Yadav


Can we predict future market trends based on news media sentiment? Market trends will be extracted using the YFinance API. News media sentiment will be extracted from the NYTimes using the NYTimes API (or possibly the Financial Times depending on availability). Sentiment analysis will be done using natural language processing. We will visualize the relationship between a metric of sentiment analysis vs stock price at time t - t_article_published, for articles purportedly related to the stock (likely via word match). Following visualization, we will train an ML regression model to the data.
