Chart Stock News Activity

Ever wanted to chart the news activity for a stock? Well, now you can.

To try this feature out, simply select a stock from the right menu, then click the legend button on the top left after the stock's graph displays, then select the Scan News Activity button.




We honestly don't know how useful this feature will become, but I imagine it'll has a lot of potential.

Next, we're going to be actually displaying the news that's charted on the graph, so you can easily jump to a particular date and see the news headlines with links to the actual articles. Further ahead, we'll be including more news sources and parsing the news data to judge the bias of the author of an article and how relevant it was to the stock's movement. Watch this space.
