Owlin develops LIVE Nieuwstrends charts for ING Sprinters
At-a-glace insights in news that is moving markets
12 JUNE 2015, AMSTERDAM
In the first week of May ING added a new feature to its 'Sprinters' portal for private investors. The 'Nieuwstrends' page displays graphically which shares, currencies or other financial products get the most 'buzz' (media attention) in real time, and then ranks the five financial instruments with the most positive coverage and the top-5 negatively in the news.
Underneath, the analysis of news is presented graphically: the size of balloons reflects the amount of news coverage or buzz. A click on a balloon produces the list of news articles.
The combination of rankings and graphic representation makes it easy to see quickly which news is trending. One-click access to the underlying stories allows investors to read the news that is causing the market movements, and to decide whether to act on the news.
The Nieuwstrends tool was proposed to ING by Owlin, and developed by the Owlin team in cooperation with ING Sprinters. To have a look at the platform go here: https://www.ingsprinters.nl/club/nieuwstrends
