In his groundbreaking work, famous British-Austrian economist Friedrich August von Hayek states that society has a “knowledge problem”. Knowledge is naturally dispersed throughout the community so that it tends to concentrate on a single planner or planning board, even if it is inefficient or impossible.
Our stock markets are almost like a living, breathing creature which reacts intuitively to anticipated regional and global affairs. The above collective consciousness that, one can safely assume, gives the markets this foresight.
What drives the markets to behave in this manner?
Markets react to the news. The stimulus here could be any breaking news.
News about a specific stock may urge investors to either buy or sell it. Stock prices go up and down constantly due to fluctuations in supply and demand. In a buying spree, a stock’s market price will increase, while in a selling spree, its price will fall. This relationship is highly sensitive to the news of the moment and is called price discovery. Investors will process the new information and decide how stock prices will be affected. And you’ll see price movements following the news.
You can mitigate temporary volatility caused by the aforementioned frenzy by staying invested long-term, but it is essential to be aware of such happenings.
The smallcase profile is designed to give you the best exposure to a particular idea, theme, or strategy. We believe that our investors should have access to all tools that may be necessary for investing. So, you can see the stocks and the latest news on them without leaving the smallcase profile. This news is sourced through proprietary logic.
What’s in the “Latest News” section?
This feature fetches news about individual stocks in the smallcase from global media outlets. These news articles are updated at intervals throughout the day to ensure the most updated news is showcased.
How does this work?
We have subscribed to the RSS feeds of trusted and resourceful finance news portals that break important news. This gives us access to a plethora of news articles about different things. We then tag the name (and ticker symbol) of the stock or asset class we’re looking for. All of this makes the setup ready.
Once any news breaks, our algorithm tries to find predetermined tags in the news headline and subhead. If the report is found relevant to a smallcase, it is immediately accessed and displayed on that particular profile.
Recently, an article about Kylie Jenner wearing gold article surfaced on our Equity and Gold smallcase. This happens when the tag (here, gold) lapses in identifying the relevance of news. However, it is a one-off case, and we’ve learnt and refined the process further for you.
Honestly, we were thankful that our AI wasn’t smart enough to take over the world from humans, yet.
