We Connect Market-Moving Events to Social Context

New knowledge. New opportunities. New business.


NewsHedge was founded in 2012 out of our own need for actionable, event-detection technologies. Since then, NewsHedge has grown into a diverse team of experienced market professionals who have helped some of the world's most sophisticated electronic trading firms, quant groups, and hedge funds react to market-moving events. We’ve also invented new methods for distributing financial information—see U.S. Patent No. 9,135,662.

What We Do

Financial media is evolving. Gone are the days of relying on slow, subjective newswires for real-time actionable context. Today, thousands of influential money managers, traders, journalists, public companies, and financial media firms are sharing timely information on social media—turning social media into a real-time contextual news source for breaking news and key events.

But professionals searching for real-time opportunities are getting bombarded with too much information to use effectively. So what does this all mean? It means this new information-rich environment requires a new approach. And new tools for finding alpha.

To help professionals identify and exploit reliable, early and differentiated information, we developed NewsHedge, an industry-leading platform that connects unusual trading behavior to contextual information happening on social media. We're effectively giving professional traders and quants an informational edge on what matters most.

What We Offer

If you're an enterprise platform—such as a trading, news, or messaging solution—you can incorporate our high-quality actionable information into your user’s workflow, which helps you increase client retention, user engagement, and revenues.
