FinovateAsia 2017 Best of Show winner YUKKA Lab has unveiled its News & Trend Lab which gives investors and traders an organized and efficient way to view and manage financial news in real-time. The News & Trend Lab aggregates search and filter options in a single location, pulling relevant and personalized data from the real-time stream of more than 200,000 articles a day from more than 20,000 global news and information sources.
More interestingly, the Lab turns market sentiment into compelling visualizations within an intuitive, cockpit-like UI that makes it easy to absorb complex data on companies, market behavior, and other financial factors.

“The YUKKA Trend Lab uses these sentiment scores and proprietary arithmetical financial models that have been back-tested since 2005 to generate an early warning system for trends and trend reversals in stock markets,” YUKKA Lab’s Head of Marketing and Communication Ulrike Haferstroh added in the product announcement at the company’s blog.
There are two components of YUKKA News & Trend Lab. The News Lab presents market events, stakeholders and interrelationships, and sentiment data. The Trend Lab builds trends indicators and trading signals based on financial modeling of sentiment data.
News & Trend Lab also features News Boards of aggregated newsflow, and market sentiment information; News Networks to better view relationships between events, trends, and companies; a variety of search and filter options; and an early warning system to help investors and traders spot emergent themes and shifts in existing trends in the markets. YUKKA Lab is charging €299 ($369) a month for News Lab, €439 per month ($542) for Trend Lab, and €549 ($678) for both News & Trend Lab. Extended packages and API solutions are also available.
Headquartered in Berlin, Germany, YUKKA Lab demonstrated its Newsflow Analyzer at FinovateEurope 2018 earlier this year, and features a client list that includes Consors Bank, UBS, and Belvoir Capital AG. YUKKA Lab is a leader in the field of augmented language intelligence and context-based text analysis, and leverages these technologies to determine the positive, negative, or neutral sentiments within textual data such as financial news. The result is a rational, emotion-free recommendation engine for investors and traders.
