I'm looking for someone (probably a quant) who can assist with predictive analytics on financial stock prices and news sentiment data. I'm no expert so I'm looking for recommendations on possible analytical techniques to consider as a start. I would like to keep it simple initially and expand at a later stage if it proves useful.
At the moment this is purely a proof of concept so I'm not looking for a full proof solution from the start. I'm trying to find out if predictive analytical techniques can be used to analyse the data I have and provide useful information. The plan is to integrate the results of these into an existing trading system to enhance trading signals.
Because this is only a POC at the moment I'm looking for a quick, dirty but usable solution where I will initially provide some sample data in an agreed format and and would like a module implemented that can analyse this data. Once delivered I would like to be able to run additional datasets through the model myself and interpret the results.
Preferably I would like this work to be completed using R (but would consider other open source options) as it integrates pretty well into my current solutions.
I have the basic OHLC data on stock prices available as well as pre-calculated sentiment data on news articles for 10+ years. Articles are linked to a company and include values such as:
* Multiple sentiment scores on article/event for different techniques
* Average sentiment over past N days
* Count of articles/events
* Scores to see if there were similar events/articles recently or if it's new
* News Types
There are more values available but these should hopefully provide a decent starting point.
There will have to be a formal NDA between all parties involved so please only reply if you are happy to sign one.
I'm sure there will be many more questions as I'm aware that I'm no expert in this field and not sure what the requirements will be (or what to expect for that matter). Please let me know if you need any additional information and I will gladly provide what I can.
