Refinitiv: Tracking Fear Cycles in Markets – Putting the Coronavirus Infodemic in Context

With coronavirus being the first true social-media “infodemic”, it’s key to understand the primary impacts on market and how we can measure them.

Hear from Dr. Richard Peterson, MarketPsych’s CEO and Refinitiv’s Katarina Harvey, Quantitative Feeds Specialist, as they present the latest research and insights on the current pandemic.

They’ll discuss:

  • How does the current Coronavirus pandemic compare to past epidemics?
  • What is the global market impact of infectious diseases and fear?
  • What’s the timing for selling before fear-induced market selloffs? And how will we identify a market bottom?
  • How to use Refinitiv’s MarketPsych Indices to monitor and forecast the outcomes of global events through news and social media sentiment data.
