Published on January 31, 2017   25 min
Hello, I am Dr Ying Zhang. I am a Finance Professor. I would like to talk to you about "Using Social Media Data in Investments".
I will be covering the following issues. Social media data on the Internet. The impacts of social media on financial markets. Why pay attention to social media? Social media: does it matter? Trading strategies based on social media information. Implications of social media. Finally, I will summarize the talk.
There are many social media sites providing free information on stock trading and investments. Some information is legitimate and useful. Some is just a waste of time, even deceptive. Caution is needed when exploring information on the Internet. First, I would like to talk about nine social media channels in which investors can easily obtain free information.
