This morning, we have rolled out StockTwits sentiment and message volume charts on ticker pages.
The sentiment charts provide a nice snapshot of the mood of the stream for any ticker (stocks, ETFs, Indices, Futures & Forex). They display the percentage of bullish and bearish sentiment shared by StockTwits members calculated on a rolling seven day basis.
This is what the $LULU sentiment chart looks like this morning. Note the big hit it took at the end of February into the beginning of March:
The message volume charts provide a visual depiction of the change in social interest or social momentum. Its calculated on a seven day rolling average of message volume.
You can find these indicators at the top right on StockTwits Ticker Pages as tabs above the price chart.
ProTip: If you would like your view to be accounted for on the StockTwits Sentiment charts, be sure to click the Bull/Bear Toggle on the StockTwits message entry box.
Note: Some tickers do not have sentiment and/or message volume indications if there is not a sufficient amount of data.
