CA covers the broad U.S. Equity market across small, medium, and large-cap stocks, filtering through roughly 1 billion Tweets a day to capture all conversations relating to US Equities.

CA’s technologies provide a live Top/Bottom 10 Watchlist, live Market Sentiment and Tweet Volume on individual securities, and once-a-day snapshot on Sentiment from the most accurate Twitter accounts. Oftentimes news breaks on Twitter ahead of traditional media outlets, allowing traders to track sentiment spikes as news breaks.

Trade Execution

Trade Cost Analysis (TCA) plays a large part in understanding how execution affects returns (alpha), especially for large institutional firms. TWAP (time-weighted) and VWAP (volume-weighted) algorithmic execution models, especially, have become very popular over the past decade. Depending on the Sentiment of a stock and the change in Sentiment, a trader might be inclined to TWAP or VWAP their execution.
