    SMA gave an informative and educational presentation that was easy to follow. I think it’s beneficial for traders to recognize the importance of always looking forward to the next big idea. Social media seems to be a phenomenon that is here to stay so I am glad to see that individuals are trying to use this medium to their advantage. Just as the speaker mentioned, the only way to be a successful trader is to use all of the data in your possession in order to make the most informed and practical decision with your money. Most traders would agree there is no one program or indicator that will pick winners 100% of the time. However, one can become a successful trader by piecing together information at the correct time and using proper risk management tools.

    Joe's methodology for determining short term market sentiment using source specific tweeted analysis is very fascinating. The resulting equity specific sentiment scores can certainly provide a trading edge and help with trade selection.
